Featured Post: Mets Fans Hope the Dream Can Become a Reality Once Again

Since the birth of baseball, teams have had one goal for each season and that was to win the championship and allow their fans bragging rights. Many teams have had the honor of not only winning one, but winning the Fall Classic multiple times. But for Mets fans wanting to win more than two and […]

Was Matt den Dekker In Line For A Roster Spot With The Mets?

At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a Matt den Dekker fan. I’ve argued in his favor since early spring training, when he leaped through the St. Lucie night and pulled a would-be home run from beyond the left-centerfield wall. Many Mets fans never knew who den Dekker was until that moment. That […]

Baseball America Ranks Mets Farm System No. 16

Baseball America’s Jim Callis had hinted in a chat a couple of months ago that the Mets farm system would be ranked somewhere around 16-18 which many found too low. Well today, Baseball America released their 2013 Organizational Rankings and the Mets did come in at No. 16. Here’s the top 16 overall: 1. St. […]

The Great Divide: Where We Are Going and Where We Are

If there’s one thing I can say about Mets fans if I were to use Twitter as the barometer, you could slice the entire fan base down the middle and the divisions are quite clear. In the past 12 months, when anyone asked me to describe the state of the Mets fan base, my reply […]

If Carlos Beltran Can Do It, So Can Johan Santana

The Mets have announced that Johan Santana will not break camp with the Mets when the team heads north next weekend.  Santana has still not been able to pitch off a mound and only today will begin long-tossing, albeit from a distance of just 90 feet. As much as I would like to see Santana […]

Johan Santana and the Mets Have Reached a Crossroad

Terry Collins told Jorge Castillo of the Star Ledger that Johan Santana is on target to start his first spring training game on March 10 or 11. That would give him about five starts, assuming there are no other setbacks, before Opening Day. Frankly, I don’t care if he’s starting Opening Day. I just want […]

Beltran Says Collins Deserves Big Assist For Wheeler Trade

I read a great article last night from David Lennon of Newsday, that I believe most of you will enjoy.

Giancarlo Stanton Blockbuster Trade With NY Mets in the Works?

Let me get this out of the way first, I give full credit to RotoExperts for the dramatic title. It looked way too seductive to me and I felt it would be a cardinal sin to mess with it or alter it in any way. But lets get to the sirloin… Apparently they’ve been given some hot […]

Taking 2013 Optimism To The Bronx

I love the air of optimism that occurs this time of year. Over the last few days we’ve seen a slew of MMO writers share their optimistic predictions for 2013, all sharing the same tone “Why not us?” In truth, the question is fair. Last year, nobody saw Oakland coming. The year prior, Arizona caught […]
