Last night during my interview with Kerel Cooper of On The Black, we discussed Johan Santana and his timetable for return. I said that if this team continues to play under .500, I believe they need to hold him off as long as they can. In fact, if the Mets continue to play poorly in the coming months, they […]

Has Angel Pagan Lost His Wings?

An article by posted on April 21, 2011 0 Comments

Angel Pagan has been off to a dreadful start, and there is no debating that. Pagan has not only batted under .170 so far, but he has also lacked the clutch hitting that the Mets relied on so heavily last season.

With the Pujols and the Cardinals miles apart and their set deadline fast approaching, it appears the 3-time MVP will hit the free-agent market following the completion of the 2011 season.

Opening Day is 3 ½ months away and we all know what to expect in 2011. Not a damn thing. Sandy Alderson has stated that it will be a season to observe, to listen and learn, and rebuild for the future. Safe to say not many of us have hope for next season. It’s December 2010 […]
