According to Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker, Mets SP/RP Hisanori Takahashi would like to stay with the Mets, but wants a two year deal. [tweeted]http://twitter.com/npbtracker/status/27314154451[/tweeted] Initially, Takahashi sounded like someone who wanted to test free agency and pursue a chance to start somewhere else rather than remain with the Mets to be a reliever.

He’s a terrible manager. He burns out the bullpen. He hooks the starters too quickly. The players don’t respond to him. There’s dissension in the clubhouse. He’s lost control of the team. He needs to go. Once we get rid of him things will improve. No, I’m not talking about Jerry Manuel. I heard these […]

I like to think that I know a lot about Baseball. I know more then some, less then others. One thing I am sure of, however, is the that the season is 162 games. This is one fact that appears to have been forgotten by the 2010 Mets. The one constant theme of the Mets […]

In a year rife with moral victories and the subsequent heartbreak that comes along with it, R.A.

Dickey […]
