Collins Thinks Trading Beltran Sends Wrong Message

A week ago I wondered about the possibilty of not trading Carlos Beltran, but instead keeping him and trying to work out a 2-year deal. You can read that below.

Trade Beltran If You Must, But Not To The Bronx

An article by posted on June 21, 2011 0 Comments

The question doesn’t appear to be “if,’’ but “when,’’ the Mets will deal outfielder Carlos Beltran. The physical questions that followed him into the season have seemingly been answered in the positive, which means the Mets don’t have to think solely about dealing with the American League, although there are several interesting possibilities, including Boston, […]

Could Ike’s Injury Have Cost Him An All-Star Appearance?

It may seem like a distant memory at this point, but earlier this season, before the unfortunate collision with David Wright that has left him in a boot for the past month, Ike Davis was off to one hell of a season.

MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 11)

Intangibles – a simple word that can mean so much more. As much as I live and die by the statistics, in fact, probably more than the average non-sabermetric fan… I’m always looking for the intangible things; the things that can’t be measured by any statistic but still have an impact on the game.

An article by posted on June 20, 2011 0 Comments

There are so many different opinions on this Jose Reyes saga, and frankly I’m ready for it all to be over. I think I’ve heard it all. I think part of the problem frankly is that the folks who are pro-long term Reyes think that people like myself dislike Reyes and that is why we […]
