The year 1976, when the Mets won 86 games, concluded an eight year (’69- ’76) period in which the Mets finished over .500 seven times. Of course, prior to 1969, the Mets had seven consecutive losing seasons beginning in their inaugural season of 1962. Then began a drought from 1977 through 1983 during which the Mets finished last or next to last in seven consecutive seasons. They lost between 94 and 99 games each season [...]
Well Met fans, “Omar the Patient” continues to wait the marketplace out. But in reality as we all scream about our lack of moves to date, we should realize that Omar is actually being intelligent about this right now. He’s holding firm on being financially responsible as it pertains to Bay and Molina. Does that mean we can’t be angry about some of his foolish signings of the past like Luis Castillo or Oliver Perez? [...]
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through Citi Field, No trades were stirring, not one single deal! All the pennants were hung in the outfield with care, In the hopes that another one soon would be there The fans were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of a World Championship danced in their heads. Omar in his kerchief and Wilpon in his cap, Had just settled their brains for a long winter’s [...]
Washington Nationals Just off of their recent acquisition of starting pitcher Jason Marquis who signed for a reasonable two year deal at $15 million, the Nats aren’t done yet.

On the last day of the winter meetings the Mets offered Jason Bay a deal that is believed to be around $65 million dollars for 4 years. One of the reasons the Mets didn’t go after a left fielder last season, and opted to go with Daniel Murphy [...]

Had the deal of went through here is how things would have panned out: New York Mets Trade: Luis Castillo Tampa Bay Rays Trade: Pat Burrell Chicago Cubs Trade: Milton Bradley Los Angeles [...]
The last thing I wanted to do this morning was bore you with another post on Jason Bay, however some of these strange twists that seem to surface each day make this ongoing soap opera to difficult to ignore. When we last saw our hero (Jason Bay), his agent Joe Urbon had said that they would be making some sort of an announcement in the next 48 hours. That was late Friday morning, and as of [...]
With only five days left until Christmas and 12 days until the start of 2010, the New York Mets still find themselves needing to address the same areas as they did on October 1st when the season ended for them. The Mets did sign a backup catcher in Henry Blanco for a tidy sum of $750 K, and re-signed Alex Cora for more than twice that, but for a team that finished last in MLB [...]
