If the Mets could only keep one of their young superstars to be the face of the franchise for the next decade, would you choose Jose Reyes or David Wright? This is a very difficult question since each comes with a certain price tag and skillset. In a perfect world, the Mets will be able to sign both players long-term—Reyes this offseason and Wright next offseason—in an attempt to keep two of the organization’s best [...]
Given all the turmoil surrounding the New York Mets coming into 2011, not many expected anything from the team, during 2011. Coming into the season, speculation arose; perhaps 2011 would be a wash year for the Mets and phase-1 of a long rebuilding process. But, here we stand June 13, and the New York Mets are flirting with the .500 mark and are very much alive in both the National League Wild Card race and [...]
“Even if the financials break down as reported, one would think the $100 million dollars being earmarked for operating costs will go toward the projected $70 million dollars in losses this season, and any additional losses next season. Basically, the way I see it, this will keep them afloat for two years, and that is assuming they don’t lose the lawsuit. By the end of those two seasons, the Wilpons better have figured out a plan to [...]
Most of the talk about Fred Wilpon’s comments to The New Yorker has been about what he has said about the players. However, Wilpon said much more than that and it is important that the whole story, both his comments about Reyes, Wright, and Beltran as well as the rest of the story is addressed. It has long been known that Jackie Robinson has been a personal hero of Wilpon’s, so much so that they [...]
Dear Fred Wilpon, When you were a child, didn’t your mother ever teach you that when you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all? In all seriousness this was a mistake on Mr. Wilpon’s part. The Mets are currently 2 games below .500 and by no means out of it this season. Sandy Alderson has been on record saying he believes this team can win now. Mid-season trades are looking less [...]
It’s been a while since I last posted with fatherhood taking a great deal of my free time. So let me begin by saying I hope everyone who waited with baited breath for the world to end this weekend enjoyed maxing out their credit cards and cavalierly finding the gumption to tell their bosses off at work; not to mention consumating their affairs with the 20 year family nanny. All done of course with the [...]
Since the hiring of Sandy Alderson there seems to be a an overwhelming sentiment among the fanbase that if you don’t 100% support everything Alderson and his front office do then you’re not a real fan of the New York Mets. Gone are the days when having a different opinion was acceptable. Today, Mets fans who disagree with the front office are labeled haters and trolls. They are singled out and attacked on sites like this one or social [...]
Chris Capuano grinded through five innings, and Justin Turner had a huge day with five RBI and the Mets won the last game, and the series against the Astros 7-4. Game Notes Chris Capuano went out today and pitched a great game, but getting himself into trouble as most Mets starters have been doing this year. Cap gave up two runs in five innings on six hits, striking out six and walking three. While Capuano [...]
After a shaky outing from Dillon Gee, the Mets offense sparked a late rally to take the first game of the series, 6-4 against the Astros. Game Notes DIllon Gee was struggling today to consistently throw strikes, and continually got himself into and then out of jams. Gee allowed four runs in five innings on five hits with four walks and six strikeouts. Gee was walking a tight rope the whole game, and most of [...]
