How Many Members of the Mets Front Office Does It Take to Change A Light Bulb?

A few weeks ago I did something all Mets fans do nowadays: I sat down to watch other teams play in the post-season. I had my Mets cap on, a can of Coke, some pretzels. And within 5 minutes I heard news that surprised me. The Indians were returning to the playoffs for the first […]

Developing Young Pitching Is The New Mets Model

John Harper pens a piece in Saturday’s New York Daily News urging the Mets to stay with the concept of rebuilding around their young pitching corps.

Before the post season started, a few people asked me which two teams I predicted would meet in the World Series. I calmly responded that I hoped it would come down to the Pirates and the Athletics. Well as we know predictions are like opinions – everybody has one, and of course mine were wrong. So now […]

Death.  Taxes.  Beltran.

Some people live for the big game.  Joe Montana saved his best efforts for the many NFC Championship Games and Super Bowls he won.  Michael Jordan was excellent at sinking clutch shots and the spirits of opposing teams in his six NBA Finals victories.  (I’m a Utah Jazz fan.  I should know.)  And then there’s […]

Hits & Misses: Beltran To The Phillies? Tulo and CarGo Are Going Nowhere?

I read some scuttlebutt last night about the Philadelphia Phillies possibly honing in on free agent to be Carlos Beltran this winter. If every free-agent signee were able to guarantee a replication of the previous year’s performance, Beltran would be No. 1 on the Phillies’ list. In 600 plate appearances for the Cardinals in 2013, […]
