An article by posted on December 20, 2010 0 Comments

For those of you who know me, you know that I am a major advocate for pitching in baseball. I understand that the Mets haven’t been active this offseason and I’m damn sure not happy about it. (Believe me, the Marcum deal ticked me off more than Greinke’s –> Why were the Mets not in on that?!) But whatever […]

Can Someone Please Define “Patience?”

The MMO fan base seems to be split recently. There’s a small group of people who are entirely unimpressed (to put it mildly) with Alderson and Co. for not spending money they don’t have on players that won’t help. There’s a seemingly larger group of fans who understand that this team, despite a new front office, […]

Update 6:00 PM I came across an interesting quote from Keith Law on ESPN Insider via Eric Simon of Amazin Avenue.

When you think about Charlie Samuels’ recent sports betting bust, you can’t help but be a little creeped out. Sure, it’s sleazy to give out insider information on the Mets for gambling purposes and using the company account as a personal bank; it’s quite another to be caught knee-deep in hundreds of thousands of dollars in mob […]
