I’m Sad This Season is Over

The Mets begin their final series of the season last night against Miami. The good news is that it is mathematically impossible for the Mets to finish in the cellar. The bad news is that they are going to finish the season down in the wins column. I get asked why I still care about […]

Who Inherited The Better Farm System?

In one of yesterday’s posts, I saw a little debate pop up as to which GM inherited a better farm system between Omar Minaya and Sandy Alderson. In my mind, the perception was that Alderson had a significantly stronger base of prospects to work with than Minaya did, but I decided to see what I could dig […]

The Armchair GM: Is Justin Upton Worth A Look?

Right now the Mets outfield situation is a disaster. Who would have thought that not one single player would solidify himself this season as a starter for 2013. Just about everyone we have thrown out there has left something to be desired. There is still time for that to change, but time is running out quickly. […]

Morning Grind: Who’s Our Outfield?!

In what has been quite the roller coaster year for the 2012 New York Mets; one thing has been consistent, and not in a good way. With some exception to a select few, this outfield has been just awful. The Amazin’s lost two starting outfielders from 2011 in Beltran and Pagan, and merely replaced them […]

With Torreabla And Shoppach Available, Should Mets Take A Flier?

Kelly Shoppach would be a great addition to the Mets as he bats right handed with some power, which is something we could really use from our backstops. His best season came with Cleveland where he hit 21 home runs back in 2008. After he left the Indians he struggled for a few seasons with […]
