Collins Is Concerned Over Still Missing Paulino

Opening Day is now 20 days away and catcher Ronny Paulino is still MIA. The worst part is the Mets still have no idea when he will arrive in camp.

The team’s standing has apparently fallen so far that it is now the butt of very public jokes. Manhattan Mini Storage is running an advertisement in the New York City subways that asks the question, “Why leave a city that has six professional sports teams, and the Mets?” Can it get any lower than this?

Re-Sign Reyes? Sure No Problem, But For How Much?

Rather than post another Reyes blog, I thought I would simply add a small addendum to this one. Ted Berg posted an interesting question on his blog Ted Quarters: So I’m wondering what you think would be a fair price for an extension for Jose Reyes right now. Knowing that he can be awesome, but […]
