Now with the Mets having cleared one of their biggest offseason worries in the Francisco Rodriguez vesting option, does that make the Mets buyers during the trade deadline? — Although a game has yet to be played after the All-Star break, this Mets team already takes on a new appearance.

Before we begin the second half of the 2011 season, a second half that will start with the loss of the team’s closer, I wanted to take some time to acknowledge the wonderful job that Terry Collins has done since he took over as the Mets new manager. First I want to share some glowing […]

When you think of closers in this generation, you think of flame throwing pitchers who are able to come in and shut down the opposition for one inning. The Firemen era, where closers handled 3 innings and got the traditional save, will no longer be visited. It comes down to a point in the game […]

A Win – Win Trade For The Brewers and The Wilpons

I know many of you were as shocked as I was when the news broke late last night that the Mets had unloaded Francisco Rodriguez plus some cash (Sherman says it’s $5 million) to the Milwaukee Brewers in return for two players to be named later.

Photos: Are The Mets Buyers Or Sellers?

The season long question of whether the Mets would be buyers or sellers at the Trade Deadline, has now been answered. These exclusive photos provide convincing evidence that the Mets are in fact sellers, which of course most teams are when they are 11 games back and wallowing in third place.  The only thing I can […]
