Mets Have A Decision To Make Between Hefner and Gee

The Mets always seem to be very indecisive these days. They waited too long to fix the outfield and nobody currently on the team is even assured of a starting role in 2014. The Ike Davis saga lasted about a month and a half too long and the team paid the price with a dead […]

From Left Field: Plenty Of Brooklyn Cyclones Coverage This Summer

So if you Mets fans out there are anything like me, it pains you to see how poorly our favorite team is playing. Usually at this time, the team is at least still somewhat relevant and playing somewhat exciting baseball. But not this year. Sure, there are some good things to look forward to with […]

Not only is Collins safe, there have been no conversations about Wally Backman as a potential replacement, either for […]

What Nobody Wants To Know About Ike Davis

Yes. This was a year too late. While most Met fans were jumping for joy when Ike Davis re-discovered his swing in the second half of last year, I was one of the few who preferred demoting him to AAA to rework his swing and more importantly his mindset. I’m not saying I was right, […]

Daniel Murphy Belongs At Second Base, Not Valdespin

Two years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be typing the first six words of this post, but it’s true. Daniel Murphy has proven himself as a formidable second baseman in 2013, and jerking him around the diamond is not going to do him or the Mets any favors. The […]

Ike Davis Is Determined To Make It Back To The Mets

Poor Ike Davis…  He gets demoted to Triple-A, deservedly so, and leaves for Las Vegas without commenting on his feelings or the matter. The obviously crushed first baseman kept his head down after the game on Sunday as he emptied his locker, packed his bags and headed for the airport. SNY sent their Baseball Insider […]

3 Up & 3 Down: The Sky Is Falling Edition

I think all of us knew the 2013 Mets were not a playoff caliber baseball team. However I was also of the belief that although the Mets were not postseason ready, they would at least be competitive. Boy was I wrong. Here we are a week before Father’s Day, and we find the Mets in […]

Alderson Says Duda and Tejada Are Not Core Players

One of the things Sandy Alderson said today during his interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa, struck me as being kind of odd and out of place. Alderson said that he does not consider Ruben Tejada or Lucas Duda as part of the team’s core. You know what? Neither do I, but I doubt that Duda or […]

Terry Collins, Sandy Alderson And Getting Our Priorities In Order

Even though the beginning of the season started with low expectations, there is still a little bit of hope. Maybe we can be that team. Maybe we can do the unthinkable. Well, after last night’s debacle and the recent stretch in general, I would say that hope is on life support and if nothing improves before the […]
