HoJo Says Ike Is Still A 30 Homer Guy

Howard Johnson doesn’t buy into the cautious, passive hitting approached espoused by the Met organization. Johnson, the new hitting coach of Seattle’s Mariners and the former third baseman on the last World Series champions of the Mets, talked with the New York Daily New’s John Harper for a piece published in Wednesday’s edition. Ike Davis […]

About Last Night… Go Crazy Folks, Go Crazy!

I’m not going to sit here this morning and preach patience like everyone else is. Those feelings that were running deep inside your veins last night was a sign that you have a pulse… A sign that you may be an extreme die-hard fan of the New York Mets…  You are exactly our kind of […]

Which Mets Non-Tender Will Be Missed The Most?

The Mets cut five players from their 40-Man Roster yesterday as they made the decision to non-tender and part ways with Scott Atchison, Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Jeremy Hefner and Justin Turner. The decisions to cut ties with Hefner and Turner were the ones that stood out the most for me. As Mike Kerwick described […]

The Mets Should Trade For Brett Anderson

It’s no secret that the Mets are in the market for a starting pitcher this winter. All talks to this point have surrounded their pursuit of free agent arms but their reluctance to overpay has seen them sit idly by while most of the top arms are finding their destinations.

Would Cespedes Be A Good Target For Mets?

2013: .240/.294/.442,  26 HR, 80 RBI Shaun asks… I just read on ESPN Rumor Central that the A’s may be growing disappointed with Yoenis Cespedes due to the sudden drop in his batting average and that they are interested in Nelson Cruz (I hope we don’t sign him). In light of a certain Mets blogger’s […]

Is Ike Davis’ Agent Salivating?

An article by posted on December 3, 2013 11 Comments

I know one player was a free agent and another is a second year arbitration eligible player, but I have to wonder… did Sandy set the market for .200 hitters that strike out a lot? With the current market “sticker shock” and the $7.25 million contract that the Mets just gave Chris Young, is Ike […]

The Mets announced they have non-tendered Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Justin Turner, Jeremy Hefner, and Scott Atchison. Interesting purge by the Mets on non-tender day… The 40 man roster is now at 35 players. Original Post Today is the non-tender deadline and all teams have until 11:59 tonight to decide which arbitration eligible players they will or will not […]

Enter Sandman: The Mets’ Three Year Journey to Irrelevance

The GM Meetings in Orlando, home of Disneyworld, came and went and while none of us honestly expected the Mets to make a lot of noise, let’s take a trip to FantasyLand for a moment.

Josh Satin – Cleanup Hitter

Call me crazy, but I’d like to see Josh Satin hitting cleanup. I think he can hit and be very productive on the Major League level. Yes, he took several years to make it to the majors, but let’s also not forget that his path to the bigs was blocked by David Wright at third […]

Disappointing To See Mets Bail Out On Phil Hughes

Since the New York Mets need pitching, it was discouraging to read reports they are not players for Phil Hughes. Two different sources confirmed they are out on Hughes. Too bad. Of all the players in the free-agent market I thought the Mets had a chance to sign, the 27-year-old Hughes was high on my list. […]
