Meaningful Games in August

Meaningful Games in August

What a week! It all starts with the acquisitions of Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson, and two much needed wins against the Los Angeles Dodgers (and let’s not forget the MLB debut of one Michael Conforto). The acquisition of Tyler Clippard starts drawing comparisons to the Kansas City Royals shutdown pen, which lasts not even […]

Beyond the Mets ‘Core Four’

Despite Winter Storm Watches in the Northeast and the gloomy fog and cold that has encapsulated my Atlanta home for the past 3 months, it is finally time to play ball in South Florida, and I am abuzz with excitement! Yes, every Spring I reach for what are usually unrealistic expectations regarding our Mets, and […]

Featured Post: Dawn of a New Year and New Expectations

2015. It has finally arrived. The year we have told ourselves we can realistically look to be a legitimate playoff contender. Finally. No more excuses. The bad contracts have been purged. The young pitching has arrived. Matt Harvey is presumably healthy. But has the team done enough to really embrace the notion of being a […]

Jenrry Mejia Should NOT Be Our Closer In 2015

In a great post earlier this week, Harris Decker posed the question as to whether Jenrry Mejia should be traded this offseason. The readers were split on this notion with 51% saying yes and 49% saying no. The reasons justifying this move, according to Decker, are health and pitching depth. These are both very valid […]

A Stretch, But Relevant Mets Goal

After losing 3 of 4 to the Giants over the weekend, it seems the recent hopes of climbing back into the pennant race had finally faded to black. After an 8-2 run to head into the All Star break, the Mets have been basically treading water since. Even with last night’s 6-1 win over the […]

Where is the Commitment to Winning?

After a decent week of beating up on struggling teams like the Pirates and Phillies, and seeing the Mets come to within a game of .500, you could imagine the wide-eyed look I gave at the prospect of a visit to Wrigley Field and the Cubs. Now, a mere three days later, all of that […]

The Bullpen Fix Can Not Wait

The Bullpen Fix Can Not Wait

Tuesday night was brutal. Depressing. Infuriating. You name the negative emotion, I likely felt it. You likely did too. The first month of the season was a feel good story. But we were not naive enough to forget our team’s shortcomings. No production from SS, strikeouts from our big free agent signing and for some […]

Lagares’ Injury and the Optimist’s View

The hamstring injury to Juan Lagares is unfortunate on so many levels. While the Spring was filled with much debate on how much playing time Lagares would see, it was clear he had become the team’s everyday centerfielder just two weeks into the season. With Lagares, the argument has always been that he is a […]

Did We Do Enough To Improve The Offense?

The moving trucks are leaving Florida. The hopes of a last second deal have faded. In just a matter of days, our beloved Mets, with a near certain 25 man-roster, will take the field in Queens and the 2014 MLB season will commence. So the question becomes, is this team as we know it, improved […]

Featured Post: The Reality (or lack thereof) of 90 Wins

Let me first go on the record to say that I would much rather have Mets GM Sandy Alderson set an expectation of 90 wins, as opposed to, say, 90 losses. For teams that look to overachieve, the first step is believing you are better than you actually are. And when it was first reported, […]
