Blogger’s disclaimer:  This recap will be full of sarcasm.  I attended today’s game expecting to see a spirited effort by the Mets against their former teammate, Pedro Martinez.  Instead I saw things on the field I never thought I’d see in person, things that pretty much sum up the 2009 season.  Buckle up.  The show’s […]

What an unbelievable finish to the Mets game this afternoon. Jeff Francoeur ended the top of the ninth with a dazzling sliding catch that was originally called a trap (it wasn’t). Francoeur made a mad dash to the second base umpire and went ballistic, causing the umpires to confer and reverse the call which ended the […]

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 […]

Here is the latest… SI.com’s Jon Heyman tweeted that the Giants were the team that claimed Gary Sheffield and prompted the […]
