Those fans who were still holding out hope that the Mets could retain Reyes, are sure to re-think their position after the sobering news that Scott Boras may be setting up camp outside Citi Field to be closer to his newest […]

Buffalo Bisons 0 Norfolk Tide 9 This was very close to being a great start for Mark Cohoon, and considering the results of his last few starts, this game has to be considered a success. The only real trouble that Cohoon faced the whole game was in the 4th inning. His command fell apart in […]

Well Mets fans, that sucked… Back to back stinkers from the Mets and suddenly .500 looks so far away again. I thought for sure the Mets were well on there way to their first walk-off win of the season, but instead it was just another one of those agonizing losses.

Two Years Later the Mets are Decisive Losers in Wagner Trade

On October 7th, 2009 the New York Mets traded Billy Wagner to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for outfielder Chris Carter and first baseman Eddie Lora. At the time of the trade it was clear the Mets were mostly making a salary dump for Wagner, but things turned out even worse than expected for […]

I really wanted to get this post up a few days ago, because my original post was going to be titled “Jose Reyes has more triples that Jason Bay has RBI”.  A few days ago that was the case, as Reyes had 11 triples to Jason’s 10 RBI.  It came up in a conversation with […]

Buffalo Bisons 7 – Norfolk Tides 4 A mixed bag tonight for Chris Schwinden. In a common theme to his starts lately, he began the game off pitching very poorly. He gave up a run on four hits and two walks over the first two innings and threw a lot of pitches. A Michael Fisher […]
