Here is an interesting tweet from Andy Martino of the Daily News regarding Texas Rangers GM Jon Daniels. [tweeted]http://twitter.com/SurfingTheMets/status/28858834069[/tweeted] That’s pretty surprising, but really shows that the Mets really wanted Alderson all along and are happy they got their man. Still, I wonder if the media will have a field day with this news and […]

As we all know, the final candidates for the next Mets general manager are Josh Byrnes and Sandy Alderson.  Some have said there could be an announcement by the end of this week as to which of them will get the nod.

Shifting Into Higher Gear

Mets fans might have celebrated hollow victories over the weekend when the Yankees and Phillies were eliminated from the postseason on consecutive nights, the final out in each game coming on a called third strike. Alex Rodriguez one night; Ryan Howard the other. Of course, rooting against the Yankees and Phillies is futile work, as […]

An article by posted on October 24, 2010 0 Comments

I recently looked into who will be available in this year’s free agent class. There are many big names, but these names will likely come with expensive price tags. Additionally, many of these big name players are not so young anymore. Whoever is in charge of making the decisions in Queens (which according to Jeff […]

The 2nd Best Team In New York….For Now

  It is a sad state of affairs when the rest of the league laughs at you instead of hating you. One of the most memorable (and hated) teams in the franchise were in the late 80′s (1984-1990 and not coincidentally under the helm of Davey Johnson). The Mets not only won handily but had a […]

From Left Field: Another Trade Proposal

An article by posted on October 22, 2010 0 Comments

After giving the Ike Davis for Prince Fielder trade some time to be debated, I’d like to propose another possible trade option for the 2011 New York Mets. It would involve the Mets trading Carlos Beltran and some minor leaguers (maybe a pitcher and one of Duda or Evans) to the Kansas City Royals for […]

As I was writing a response to Cerrone & Joe D and the rest of our MMO population, I realized I was writing a blog. Therefore, I figured a responsive blog may be the best route to go.  It’s a great debate. It’s one that isn’t stale and what I find fascinating about it is […]
