An article by posted on January 8, 2009

MLB Network is In, SNY, YES and NESN are Out I don’t know about you, but ever since the debut of MLB Network, I haven’t tuned into SNY once. Of course I’ll be watching every Mets game as well as Pre and post game coverage, but let’s face it, given the choice between the two it’s […]

What If These Things Happened?

Hypothetically speaking… let’s just imagine for a second that the players we hear on the HotStove are interested in the Mets. Now, let’s also imagine that Omar could sign most of them, be somewhat reasonable and not press “Force Trade” from a baseball video game like signing EVERYONE (we’re not the Yankees).

An article by posted on January 5, 2009

The following comment was recently left by Drew: Ben Sheets would be a STEAL at $22M/2. If he’s willing to take it, give it to him, but I think tossing the offer we’ve got to Lowe right now to Sheets is still a bargain and possibly something he’d sign for. To get Ben Sheets for […]

Does Beltran Have A 30/30 Season In Him?

An article by posted on January 5, 2009

One of my favorite players on the Mets is without question Carlos Beltran. He has been an absolute stud in centerfield and yet I can’t help feeling the best is yet to come. In 2006, when he hit 41 homeruns and drove in 116, I thought Beltran was about to enter a huge power spike that would […]
