These Mets Are A Resilient Bunch With No Quit In Them

An article by posted on June 8, 2011 0 Comments

Believe me when I say this, but I am not taking a drink of the Kool-Aid. I never expected the Mets to contend this season and don’t expect that to change. I still think over the next six weeks the Mets will attempt to shed payroll in the names of Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and […]

Capuano Has Been A Tough Luck Pitcher

An article by posted on June 7, 2011 0 Comments

When looking at Chris Capuano’s stats, anyone unfamiliar with the Mets would think he’s having a pretty poor season. However, it’s been quite the opposite for the lefty. Capuano has actually pitched well for the Mets but has been the victim of some tough luck this season. He’s made 11 starts so far with a […]

Mets Showing a Change in Philosphy for the Better

Mets fans can take a deep breathe and relax. Sandy Alderson, Paul DePodesta, and crew did not screw up this first round like one would think from reading the Mets blogosphere following the selection. I’ll start this off by saying people need to realize the Baseball America player rankings are not the be-all and end-all. […]

Sean Hartnett of CBS New York, argues that the Mets best option would be to trade Jose Reyes. With Ruben Tejada ready to shift over to shortstop, the Mets have a ready-made solution available at the major league level. Tejada is captivating fans at Citi Field with his superb glove and is more advanced at the […]

Why Nimmo And Not A Pitcher?

An article by posted on June 7, 2011 0 Comments

The New York Mets need pitching, pitching and more pitching. That’s why it’s quite strange that the team selected high school outfielder Brandon Nimmo with the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft. I can echo Robert Knapel’s sentiments on the subject that this pick is odd. First off, Nimmo, who is the […]

Lenny Dykstra Jailed For Auto Theft, Drug Possession

I hate posting this kind of news, but former Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra, makes it too difficult to ignore his antics and frequent skirmishes with the law. According to the Daily News, Dykstra was tossed in jail Monday after being charged with stealing three cars and possessing drugs. He was charged with 25 criminal counts, and […]

Lucas Duda Is Raking In Buffalo, Why Not Flushing?

A few minutes ago, I caught a tweet from the Buffalo Bisons that read: Lucas Duda has vaulted his average 46 pts the past 10 games. It sounded pretty impressive so I thought I’d investigate further. The hulking 6-4 outfielder is mashing the ball for the Bisons and in just 115 at-bats, Duda has slugged […]

2011 First Year Player Draft: Time For DePodesta To Shine

So far this season, we’ve seen Sandy Alderson successfully navigate his way with very little cash on hand to do the things he probably would have wanted and preferred. He rolled the dice on a few players and lost some and won some, but to his credit, the Mets are still relevant. Terry Collins has […]

“Don’t Trade Reyes Day” Has Become A Growing Movement

On Friday night, as many of you know, several hundred die-hards gathered on the Shea Bridge, myself included, chanting for the cause of keeping Jose Reyes as a New York Met. Many wearing The7Line’s T-shirts, it was truly an incredible experience to be part of such an event. To read my full report on Friday’s Reyes Rally […]

Terry Shuffles Lineup, Who Should Bat Cleanup?

An article by posted on June 6, 2011 0 Comments

I like what Collins did in finally moving Bay down in the order.  I know it was made easier because guys like Murphy, Turner and Pagan are hitting so well right now.  But, it was a much deserved demotion for Jason who has not been the player we thought we were signing.  WIth Bay out […]
