I’ll cut to the chase. Something I’ve been thinking about recently and that I’ve mentioned a few times to friends lately is that the Mets really don’t have a real cleanup hitter. We play in a ball park that is quite obviously pitcher friendly and it can very well sap a few runs from any […]

The Mets look to continue their hitting and pitching ways tonight as they start a six game road trip in DC. The last time these two teams met in New York, the Nationals were able to squeak out 2 of 3, and then things started to fall apart for the Amazins. The Mets look to […]

With Chris Young coming off the DL, the Mets have decided to opt D.J. Carrasco down to Triple-A and to place Dillon Gee in the bullpen. This move is not only endangering the further development of Gee as a pitcher, but also takes a great pitcher out of the rotation. What does not makes sense is why take Gee […]

Others are more cynical and say that as long as you toe the line with Selig, supporting his revenue-sharing […]

Jeff Wilpon Sparks Mets 4-Game Win Streak

Fred and Jeff Wilpon get a lot of heat these days from just about anyone who owns a keyboard, most of it undeserved. Many fans have even accused them of being to meddlesome in how the team is run (not so sure how true that is either). Well it appears that their meddling may have […]
