Mets Are Ten Games Below .500 – It’s Starting To Feel Like 1978

Last season, with an Ike Davis that was as woeful as he is now, the New York Mets were still eight games above .500 on June 8. Here it is, three weeks into May, and the Mets are already ten games below .500. That 2012 team lost 88 games, how many will this year’s version lose? […]

Comparing Mets 2005-2010 Draft and IFA Signings To Other MLB Teams?

Many Mets fans have extremely passionate opinions about how well the Mets drafted and signed International free agents during the Omar Minaya era. It is a hotly debated topic, but after every heated debate, there are never any clear answers to how the Mets drafted during this period. Because of the lack of clarity, I […]
