Sacking Terry Collins Now Would Be Unfair

Terry Collins will go to home plate tomorrow with the line-up card and likely get booed. Surely, he’ll hear it when he makes a pitching change. It won’t be fair, but we know few things in baseball aren’t fair.Collins doesn’t have a contract beyond this season, and his lame duck status rises to the surface when […]

Featured Post: The High Price Of Mediocrity

It must have been fate that I happened to be in my car at 1:00 pm yesterday. After listening to WFAN’s Mike Francesa, I see the other side to this Valdespin issue – in fact it goes beyond Valdespin. I only was in the car long enough to hear his opening monologue, but you know […]

Was Valdespin Sent Up By Collins To Get Hit?

Updated by Joe D. at 2:30 PM Just caught this on MetsBlog who seems to have just caught on to what has been a two day debate here: It almost sounds like Collins put Valdespin in a situation he knew would end up with a hit-by-pitch, maybe in an effort to teach Valdespin a lesson, […]

3 Up & 3 Down: Those Darn Dodgers Edition

The Los Angeles Dodgers were in town this week, taking 2 out of 3 games against the Mets. This was a fun series, that pictured two well pitched games on Wednesday and Thursday. I’ll even go so far as to say Wednesday night’s game was one of the most enjoyable ball games I’ve watched in […]

David Wright Superstar?

You’ve probably read an article like this before.  Lord knows enough of them have been written.  Is David Wright a superstar?  Its an argument that still rages on an almost daily basis across every social media forum.  On one side, you find a group of super-critical fans who feel Wright can’t possibly live up to […]

Mets Captain David Wright Enjoys Bossing Murphy and Davis Around

Sally Turner of IBTimes.tv sent me this video her crew shot with Mets third baseman David Wright during the just completed homestand. One of the things I thought was funny was when she asked him about his responsibilities as team captain, to which Wright said he enjoys bossing all the players around and particularly Ike […]

I’ve Really Gotta Hand It To The Mets This Time…

I just caught a glimpse of what this season’s Opening day tickets look like, courtesy of Leigh Castergine, VP of Ticket Sales & Services for the New York Mets, and I must say they look spectacular! Those tickets are so awesome… I love the vintage look and of course the image of The Franchise, Tom […]

Digging Deeper Into David Wright’s New Deal: Is It Actually a Bargain For The Mets?

At first glance, the eight-year, $138 million deal David Wright signed early Friday morning didn’t appeal to many. Originally, reports indicated that the Mets wanted to offer a little less than $120 million, and the Wright camp started out well above $140 million, so I was very surprised that the two sides settled for such […]

From Left Field: Wright’s Homer Should (Hopefully) Seal His Future In NY

David Wright has been called “unclutch” during his Mets career. That may be the case overall, but that certainly wasn’t the case today, as ne belted an opposite-field, three-run homer that proved the difference in securing R.A. Dickey his 20th win of the season. It’s fitting that the Mets unofficial captain came through in a […]
