Here is a summary of what Sandy Alderson had to say during his conference call that concluded a short while ago. He did not make any moves today because the players that will help the Mets win this season still have a certain value to the team and that the return on trading those players did not reflect that same value. He basically reiterated what I have been saying all along particularly on Marlon Byrd […]
Kudos to Milwaukee owner Mark Attanasio for his immediate gesture to Brewers fans in the wake of the 65-game suspension of Ryan Braun. But, will it end there? Could the Brewers want to clean up their mess by trading Braun? And if so, could the Mets be a fit? Yes, Braun got off on a technicality the first time and Major League Baseball has had it in for him since. It was only a matter […]
CHEATER, LIAR, SUSPENDED, JUSTICE! Updated By Clayton Collier: The 65-game ban of Ryan Braun was negotiated by him, MLBPA and MLB. Major League Baseball was looking for a suspension beyond 2013, says ESPN’s T.J. Quinn, however Braun was able to get it reduced to the remainder of the current season. Sources tell OTL MLB confronted Braun with volumes of evidence provided by Tony Bosch, including texts. — T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) July 22, 2013 If plan […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I didn’t get a chance to weigh in on this yesterday and just wanted to post a quick summary after his interview. We’ve heard Fred and Jeff Wilpon say things like this for almost a year now. Ever since they avoided that billion dollar lawsuit and averted bankruptcy, I said at the time that the team was on the rebound financially…. And they apparently were… They cut spending drastically, charged Alderson […]
Jerry Seinfeld, celebrity Mets fan extraordinaire, didn’t take to kindly to how Met fans behaved at the All-Star Game on Tuesday. “This is one of the lowest moments of my lifetime of Mets fandom, when the Citi Field crowd was booing teams that they see as rivals to their Mets team,” he told Steve Somers of WFAN. “I was in shock. I was embarrassed. I thought it was horrible manners. These are the best players, […]
When a team is chosen to host the MLB All-Star Game, it means not only the greatest baseball has to offer converging on a specific location, but the celebration of both the host city and team. In the past week we witnessed the All-Star Game in Flushing for the first time since 1964, and Major League Baseball, the Mets, and the City of New York did a fantastic job of putting it all together. Citi Field […]
The always enjoyable to read Ted Berg, now with USA Today, sets us straight on how fans view their top prospects and writes: Great players in the minors almost always graduate to the next level, but great players in the Majors have no place else to go. On the rare occasion a minor leaguer is in fact good enough to dominate in the bigs, he doesn’t hang around on the farm for long. Class AA […]

I complain a bit too much about some of the promotions the Mets do or don’t do. Nowhere near as much as our friends at Mets Police, but I do give them a good rip from time to time. But sometimes, the Mets do hit it out of the park, and this latest promotion does just that. Read on… Root for Mets All-Star David Wright in the Chevrolet Home Run Derby this Monday at 8 […]
