Lately, most of the trade rumors surrounding the Mets have been centered around Mark De Rosa of the Indians, Nick Johnson of the Nationals, and Aubrey Huff of the Orioles. And while most baseball analysts agree that each will be made available, I believe each of them bring something different to the table. Lets take a look at their numbers and at the same time I’ll give you what I believe are the pros and […]
Joel Pineiro aka The Beast That Swallowed New York was unbelievable last night. The sinker-baller stymied the New York Mets, and induced 22 ground outs in a 3-0 shutout Tuesday night at Citi Field. It was his second shutout of the season, and he didn’t allow a runner past second base. The Mets didn’t even hit a flyball until the fifth inning. All we can do is tip our caps as Keith likes to say, or we […]
Former Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg, levied some harsh criticism on Sammy Sosa and his Hall of Fame chances.

But as the season wore on, and the bullpen innings continued to mount, we began to see some cracks as May came to an end. Jerry Manuel was quick to take the blame for his ineffective bullpen lately, but there’s more to it than that. “What I need to do […]
I thought I would do something special in honor of Fathers Day and take a look at all those fathers and sons that have played in the Major League’s and see if I could field a decent team. I think I did pretty good, and I was surprised to see how common it really was for fathers and sons to play in a game. Here you go… My Ultimate Fathers Day Team C – Yogi […]
Two starts in and Fernando Nieve is looking like a solid waiver wire pickup, although we’ve been down this road before with guys like Alay Soler, Jorge Sosa and most recently Nelson Figueroa. Lets just temper our expectations a little before we start getting a little bit too giddy. Nieve had a 4.91 ERA at Class-AA Binghamton and a 3.70 ERA at Class-AAA Buffalo before he was called up. In his last three games, first baseman […]
A pissed off Johan Santana shot back at rumors started by former Mets pitching coach Rick Peterson for saying Santana’s surgically repaired left knee is the reason. “How did he know that my knee hurts?” Santana said before the Mets played the Orioles. “That’s the question that I have.
