Rounding The Bases: Mets Attendance Down Again, Keep Thole, DePo on Wheeler

In this Saturday edition of Rounding The Bases, some great links to several interesting Mets narratives with a quote from R.A. Dickey for good measure. Enjoy. An outfielder and it’s not close.

Are The Players Turning The Tables On The Mets Front Office?

On Wednesday I posted this comment R.A. Dickey made regarding his thoughts on signing an extension with the Mets after this season: “If I don’t see them pursuing David hard,” Dickey said, “I think it would be a message to everybody that they’re content to spend the next five or six years rebuilding this organization.

Describe The Mets 2012 Season In One Word

So much has already been said and written about the incredible season, or should I say year, R.A. Dickey has had in 2012.
