Featured Post: The Wilmer Flores Experiment

At just 23 years old, it’s hard to imagine giving up on a highly regarded prospect. Still, I believe the time has come for the Mets to move on from Wilmer Flores. Signed at the ripe old age of 16, Flores has progressed slowly through the Mets farm system, racking up almost 3,000 minor league […]

Morning Di-Jest:  I Have Questions

Has Terry Collins gone from using Eric Young Jr. every chance he gets, to using him as little as possible? Don’t get me wrong I think that EY used strictly as a pinch-runner maximizes his only major league skill. Does Daniel Murphy take the first pitch he sees in the 1st inning every game yet […]

The Answer Is Contact – Part Deux

3 Up, 3 Down: Bay Watch

Petey’s Mets Nightmare

Can Anyone Here Play This Game? I get up like any other day to get ready for work. As I am making some fresh coffee I flip on ESPN. Hey what the hell is this? There is ‘breaking baseball news’ they say, coming up after the break. So as the commercials play, and the coffee […]

Mets Are More ‘Clutch’ Than The Nats, Statistically Speaking

Judging from comments on my twitter feed, I’d venture to guess that the prevailing emotion among Mets fans out there for this season is abject frustration.
