An article by posted on May 17, 2011 0 Comments

I am happier than anyone with how the Mets have been playing lately. The team is getting offensive production from unlikely sources, the bullpen has been miraculous and Mike Pelfrey seems to be getting back on track. However, all of a sudden, shades of the 2009 injury plague have crept back to the team. David […]

Getting Some Things Off My Chest

That was the optimist in me speaking. This morning in the New York Post, Mark Hale shares a gloomier outlook after speaking to […]

After the extra inning loss to the Fish, the Mets made some roster moves in the wake of Wright’s injury.  Chin Lung Hu, who did not hit at all, was sent to the minors for the slick fielding Reuben Tejada.  Ryota Igarashi was also optioned to Buffalo, as Pedro Beato was activated.  Sandy Alderson also […]

Jose Reyes, along with the up and coming Ike Davis, who now is on the DL, have been the best offensive production on the Mets ballclub. Reyes has also become arguably the best player to be the subject of trade rumors this season. While it becomes increasingly likely that Reyes will be dealt do to an inability or lack of interest to […]

In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: Striking while the iron is hot, Father Time, and other insipid thoughts. In around ten weeks Carlos Beltran will be an ex-Met. That is a foregone conclusion.

Mets Are Who We Thought They Were

I remember Denny Green’s blowup almost word for word because it’s my second favorite unintentionally hilarious sports rant I’ve ever seen.
