Mets Need the Willingness to Fail

As the Mets begin their 6th straight summer of “don’t call us, we’ll call you” caliber baseball, something has to change. The focus for this franchise has been shedding huge contracts, and building up the farm system and in reality – they succeeded in that feat. Whether players like Noah Syndergaard, Travis d’Arnaud or Zack Wheeler […]

It’s Time for a New Voice.  Bring in Wally.

I don’t have anything against Terry Collins. He was asked to steer a rudderless ship for the past several seasons, knowing full well that he didn’t have a chance of winning and did the best with an inferior group of players. When he came on board prior to the 2011 season, he promised the fans […]
