Okay I’m back from my 48-hour Post-MLB Draft Stress Disorder. Did you guys miss me? How about you Bayonne Met Fan, did you miss me? Well shockingly enough, the Mets did not end up with any of the players I figured they would select in the first round on Monday. I never expected them to reach so far down to […]

Jason Bay has been awful in his stay thus far with the Mets. I don’t even think in my worst dreams would I have thought that he would be this bad. When you start to think about trades, you immediately think that a guy like Jason Bay is not tradeable due to his hefty contract […]

Believe me when I say this, but I am not taking a drink of the Kool-Aid. I never expected the Mets to contend this season and don’t expect that to change. I still think over the next six weeks the Mets will attempt to shed payroll in the names of Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and […]

When looking at Chris Capuano’s stats, anyone unfamiliar with the Mets would think he’s having a pretty poor season. However, it’s been quite the opposite for the lefty. Capuano has actually pitched well for the Mets but has been the victim of some tough luck this season. He’s made 11 starts so far with a […]

Mets Showing a Change in Philosphy for the Better

Mets fans can take a deep breathe and relax. Sandy Alderson, Paul DePodesta, and crew did not screw up this first round like one would think from reading the Mets blogosphere following the selection. I’ll start this off by saying people need to realize the Baseball America player rankings are not the be-all and end-all. […]

Sean Hartnett of CBS New York, argues that the Mets best option would be to trade Jose Reyes.

Why Nimmo And Not A Pitcher?

An article by posted on June 7, 2011 0 Comments

The New York Mets need pitching, pitching and more pitching. That’s why it’s quite strange that the team selected high school outfielder Brandon Nimmo with the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft. I can echo Robert Knapel’s sentiments on the subject that this pick is odd. First off, Nimmo, who is the […]

Lenny Dykstra Jailed For Auto Theft, Drug Possession

I hate posting this kind of news, but former Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra, makes it too difficult to ignore his antics and frequent skirmishes with the law. According to the Daily News, Dykstra was tossed in jail Monday after being charged with stealing three cars and possessing drugs. He was charged with 25 criminal counts, and […]

Lucas Duda Is Raking In Buffalo, Why Not Flushing?

A few minutes ago, I caught a tweet from the Buffalo Bisons that read: Lucas Duda has vaulted his average 46 pts the past 10 games. It sounded pretty impressive so I thought I’d investigate further. The hulking 6-4 outfielder is mashing the ball for the Bisons and in just 115 at-bats, Duda has slugged […]

2011 First Year Player Draft: Time For DePodesta To Shine

So far this season, we’ve seen Sandy Alderson successfully navigate his way with very little cash on hand to do the things he probably would have wanted and preferred. He rolled the dice on a few players and lost some and won some, but to his credit, the Mets are still relevant. Terry Collins has […]
