The Mets are a team with a penchant for bad trades. Anyone who’s been a Mets fan for more than a couple of years would probably finish that sentence with a handful of notorious trade fans consider to be the worst. You know which ones I’m talking about. But while the players involved in these trades […]
Here’s something I dug up from a couple of years ago that brings us back to the hot stove season of 1975, when the Mets also traded one of the team’s most popular players – a move they would eventually regret. Mike Lloyd does a nice job in the re-telling of what happened back then. […]
Anthony DiComo talks about what the Mets could expect to do n 2012. I’m not expecting much in 2012 from the Amazins’, especially with a team that must now overcome the losses of Beltran, Reyes and K-Rod from last Opening Day’s roster. Like last year, they will once again be banking on a healthy return […]

Mets RHP Zack Wheeler is more than just the Mets #1 prospect. He is more than the player acquired in the one undeniably fantastic move that Sandy Alderson has pulled off as GM so far. He is more than a very talented, 21-year-old righty with an explosive fastball and a ton of upside. He is […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN via twitter, the Mets have inked catcher Rob Johnson to a minor league deal. The contract is for one year with an invite to Spring Training. This move adds some depth to the extrememly thin Mets catching situation. Johnson will likely be in competition with Mike Nickeas for the backup […]
What did I say was going to happen before Opening Day? <scratches head> Oh yeah, this… You’re obsolete my baby, my poor discarded baby, I say baby, baby, baby you’re outta time…. The Wilpon’s have always loved slogans… The Team, The Time… Your Season Has Come… We need one for the 2012 Mets… What’cha got?
