Is Signing Lackey A Smarter Move Than Trading For Halladay?

An article by posted on November 17, 2009 0 Comments

Let me begin by saying that you’ll get no argument from me as to who is the superior starting pitcher between Roy Halladay and John Lackey. Obviously, it’s Halladay and it’s not even close. If Doc was pitching for a high powered offense like the Yankees, he may have been a 25 game winner this […]

Here’s An Overlooked Reason Why Lackey’s The Man

An article by posted on November 15, 2009 0 Comments

John Lackey?  Roy Halladay?  Both are All-Star caliber pitchers.  Both could elevate the Mets to the level where we expect them to be.  Signing Lackey and trading for Halladay would look lovely, but we know that’s not happening.  After all, the Wilpons are our owners.  Acquiring one of the two appears to be the more […]

As we all know by now Citi Field is a pitchers park.  It has a big outfield and 16 foot fences on the outfield walls.  The Wilpons decided when building a new ball park for the Mets to play in that they wanted a pitchers park for the Mets. I’m sure if you ask David […]
