Young Strong In Mets Shutout Loss To The Braves, 2-0

The Mets (73-85) lost to the Braves (92-66) by the score of 2-0 on Saturday evening in Atlanta. In an unsurprisingly impressive performance, Chris Young finished his season with the Mets on a high note. Why do I say unsurprisingly? With Young making his final start of the year without a hitch, he has shown […]

Should The Mets Trade Jon Niese? No.

Should the Mets trade Jonathon Niese? I don’t know why MetsBlog keeps putting this out there every month, but the answer is the same as it’s always been and that is NO.

Rounding The Bases: Mets Attendance Down Again, Keep Thole, DePo on Wheeler

In this Saturday edition of Rounding The Bases, some great links to several interesting Mets narratives with a quote from R.A. Dickey for good measure. Enjoy. An outfielder and it’s not close. Josh Thole struggled this year but I don’t think the Mets should bail on him quite yet; he’s still only 25, he’s a […]

Mets Front Office Turned The Tables On The Players And The Fans

I was reading the excellent post by Joe D that was inspired by a statement from Metsie entitled, “Are The Players Turning The Tables On The Mets Front Office?” But I felt one key factor was missing from the summations made in the piece and on the comment thread that ensued. One chapter in Mets […]

Are The Players Turning The Tables On The Mets Front Office?

On Wednesday I posted this comment R.A. Dickey made regarding his thoughts on signing an extension with the Mets after this season: “If I don’t see them pursuing David hard,” Dickey said, “I think it would be a message to everybody that they’re content to spend the next five or six years rebuilding this organization.

They flashed to Dickey very briefly, as he sat in the dugout during the ninth inning of yesterday’s game, with his twentieth victory hanging in the balance, and he looked about as […]
