Lenny Dykstra Jailed For Auto Theft, Drug Possession

According to the Daily News, Dykstra was tossed in jail Monday after being charged with stealing three cars and possessing drugs. He was charged with 25 criminal counts, and […]

Lucas Duda Is Raking In Buffalo, Why Not Flushing?

A few minutes ago, I caught a tweet from the Buffalo Bisons that read: Lucas Duda has vaulted his average 46 pts the past 10 games. It sounded pretty impressive so I thought I’d investigate further. The hulking 6-4 outfielder is mashing the ball for the Bisons and in just 115 at-bats, Duda has slugged […]

2011 First Year Player Draft: Time For DePodesta To Shine

So far this season, we’ve seen Sandy Alderson successfully navigate his way with very little cash on hand to do the things he probably would have wanted and preferred. He rolled the dice on a few players and lost some and won some, but to his credit, the Mets are still relevant. Terry Collins has […]

On Friday night, as many of you know, several hundred die-hards gathered on the Shea Bridge, myself included, chanting for the cause of keeping Jose Reyes as a New York Met. Many wearing The7Line’s T-shirts, it was truly an incredible experience to be part of such an event. To read my full report on Friday’s Reyes Rally […]

I like what Collins did in finally moving Bay down in the order.  I know it was made easier because guys like Murphy, Turner and Pagan are hitting so well right now.  But, it was a much deserved demotion for Jason who has not been the player we thought we were signing.  WIth Bay out […]

The Mets are calling Carlos Beltran’s injury a “right leg contusion” after  X-rays were taken and came back negative. They are classifying him as day to day. Beltran left Sunday’s game after fouling a ball off the inside of his right shin in the second inning. He finished the at-bat, striking out against Tim Hudson, but then walked off the field gingerly […]
