The Mets Have a Need for Speed

The Mets lack speed, and everybody, from opposing teams to the fans at Citi Field knows it. As of today, the team scores over 60 percent of their runs via the longball, making them perhaps the only squad in baseball capable of being fourth in the league in home runs while simultaneously sitting third from […]

Morning Grind: The Hell With The Future, Go For It Now

And when I see Mets fans and media hearkening to and longing for the faulty policies and impulsive decision-making that set this Mets franchise back for nearly a decade culminating in six consecutive losing seasons, it’s pure unadulterated ignorance at the highest level. It makes my blood boil. This morning I came […]

Jeurys Familia Needs to Pitch Less

It’s been a weird season for Jeurys Familia. On the plus side, he hasn’t blown a regular season save since the San Diego Padres rain game debacle back in July 2015. Also on the plus side, his FIP is 2.17 — which is the lowest mark of his career. These are not surprising because he […]
