Alderson Says Ticket Sales Was Consideration In Home Opener Decision

General manager Sandy Alderson acknowledged that bumping Matt Harvey from the home opener at Citi Field was in part based on maximizing ticket sales.

Who’s The “Not Me” This Time?

Many years ago I worked in an office that had a large staff.

Featured Post: Who Are These Swagger-iffic New York Mets?

“You know, for years and years, you used to watch those teams that won all of the time, they had an air about them. You used to play the Braves and they’d walk out there and, they weren’t cocky, but they were confident. They weren’t overbearing, they knew how to play, they knew what they […]

Even In Defeat, A-Rod’s Still A Winner

Alex Rodriguez‘s handwritten apology letter released to the media yesterday was a joke. It was authentic A-Rod: cold, unforgiving, and insincere. In a letter that should be the most humble apology we’ve ever heard, he didn’t explain himself. He didn’t even say what he did. He called his steroid use “the mistakes that led to my […]
