I can’t believe that a smart guy like Rob Neyer would write an article that bashes Mets GM Omar Minaya for trading Heath Bell at the end of the 2006 season. It’s one of the worst cases of Monday Morning Quarterbacking I’ve ever seen from a national sports journalist. I wouldn’t have minded that much if this was some rant […]

What was written then is coming to pass, the back end of Johan Santana’s contract appears to be choking the Mets. It was widely written, by me and others, that six years is too long a deal for a pitcher who had already accumulated a lot of innings. Santana’s velocity has been in decline, and […]

In a year rife with moral victories and the subsequent heartbreak that comes along with it, R.A. Dickey has been one of the more pleasant surprises with the 2010 Mets.  I’m sure most Mets fans weren’t expecting much from a 35 year-old quasi-journeyman knuckleballer (I certainly wasn’t), we can now break bread that R.A.
