The Mets played a heck of game and beat the Phillies 4-2 in the first of a four game series with the Phillies. I usually save me comments for the end of the recap, but I gotta tell you how impressed I was with the intensity of the Mets given their dismal situation.  They played […]

Jon Heyman is reporting that Billy Wagner has been claimed on waivers, probably by the Cubs, hopefully not the Phillies or Marlins who are also rumored to be interested. The Mets now have 3 days to either work out a trade, let him go with nothing in return, or pull him back as they did with […]

The easiest decision the Mets have to make this year is staring them right in the face: Cut Gary Sheffield. As soon as he walks into the Mets club house today have equipment man Charlie Samuels greet him at his locker with a surplus of Hefty bags to stuff his belongings into. He came with […]

Well now that it is in almost everyone’s minds that this season is over, I would like to present a question.  Would a smaller Citi Field be a better Citi Field?  Would it benefit or hurt the Mets to make the field smaller for next season by bringing in the outfield fence or even making […]

Billy Wagner returned to the Mets to make his first appearance in the major leagues in over a year, entering to a thunderous ovation from the Flushing Faithful.  However, the Citi Field premiere of Enter Sandman did not help send the Braves to Never Never Land.  Brian McCann pulled a long home run into the […]

The Mets (56-64) lost to the Braves (63-57) by a score of 15-2. Bobby Parnell made his 3rd start of the year, and was he bad. In the second inning the Braves sent 11 men to the plate. HOWEVER, in defense of Bobby he could have gotten out of the inning when it was only […]
