“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.

Jason Bay Brings Out The Boo In All Of Us

Jason Bay is being paid $66 million by the New York Mets to suck. Judging by the boos at Citi Field, he is earning every penny of it. But what are they booing exactly? Is it the lack of home runs by Bay after smashing 36 longballs for Boston in 2009? Is it the failure […]

Morning Grind: Enough Is Enough, It’s Time For Bay To Grab Some Pine
