Former Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg, levied some harsh criticism on Sammy Sosa and his Hall of Fame chances. According to Sandberg, a Hall of Famer himself, Sammy Sosa does not belong in the Hall because of integrity issues associated with the steroids era. While a guest on ESPN 1000 radio today, Sandberg said: “They use the word ‘integrity’ in describing a Hall of Famer in the logo of the Hall of Fame, and I think there are gonna be […]

Jose Reyes and the Mets trainer were in a car accident on the Triboro Bridge today. Reyes was not injured. Reyes and Ray Ramirez were hit from behind by a fire truck.

The Mets bullpen got off to a great start and quickly staked its claim as the best in the National League after an off-season overhaul. 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. You guys tell me how did he find that out? Because it is crazy. Not even the trainers know. Not even me. I didn’t know my knee […]
The Mets get set to rebound from a pretty bad week of baseball tonight, when they take on the Baltimore Orioles. Mike Pelfrey (4-2, 4.68 ERA) Pelfrey was locked in for the first six innings against the Phillies on Wednesday, allowing two hits and one run. Things unraveled in the seventh, though; he surrendered three hits before being removed. All three runners scored, eliminating Pelfrey’s chance for a fifth win. Now, Pelfrey makes his first […]
Today I want to take a not so in-depth look at where the Mets stand in terms of making a deal. I keep reading and hearing all these different trade rumors that are making less and less sense as we move closer to the trade deadline. All I hear is that we need to get Matt Holliday or Jermaine Dye or Carlos Lee or Roy Halladay, the list is endless. And while I’m the first one to […]
Earlier today, Rob (aka Tie Dyed) penned a great piece that looked back on that ill-fated day when the Mets traded “The Franchise” Tom Seaver to the Cincinnati Reds. Here is some video where Mike Douglas interviews Tom Seaver and they discuss that trade and the events that led up to it. Enjoy this vintage video…
