Wright Offers Are Not Very Righteous

Sandy Alderson may not be actively shopping third baseman, but he has gotten at least two offers according to Heyman. Alderson spoke to reporters last night and said, “he did not anticipate trading David Wright this winter”. I’m pretty sure that if one of those offers bowled him offer, Wright would be an ex-Met tonight - rightfully so. With […]

Choosing Mets Over Reyes

I recognize that when things like Jose Reyes signing a contract with the Miami Marlins occur, there will always be an outcry. I guess what I am most confused about is why people are acting as though they didn’t see this coming? I recognize that I am in a minority of Mets fans that is […]
