In case you missed this, Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post hits the Mets over the head as they conclude their fifth consecutive losing season, all while they try to convince fans that next season will be different… Again… So far, they were right… It’s always been different as they continue collecting even more losses with few signs of life on the MLB roster. After the season ends, Sandy and Jeff will hit the […]
John Harper of the Daily News reports that it’s no secret the Mets would love to trade for Carlos Gonzalez, and one baseball executive with insight into the Rockies’ thinking says Colorado is likely to seriously consider offers for Gonzalez and even Troy Tulowitzki this winter as it looks to rebuild. However, the Rockies would be looking for a package built around young position players, as opposed to pitching, making it unlikely the Mets would be a […]
The Mets clinched their fifth consecutive losing season after they were beaten by the Marlins 3-0 this afternoon at Citi Field. It was the third shutout loss for the Mets in this homestand. Five straight losing seasons is the fourth-longest streak in franchise history. The only streaks longer: seven from 1962-68 and 1977-83, and six from 1991-96. Carlos Torres limited the Marlins to two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out a career-high eight […]
A couple of nights ago I’m on Facebook checking out a page for fellow Mets fans. We’re all rejoicing in the Yankees misery. I, too, add a few comments and threw in a joke about ‘A-Roid.’ Someone else commented about us playing spoiler and knocking the Nats further back. Then, it hit me. This is what we’ve become. We have nothing hopeful to cheer for, so yet again this season, we are reduced to the role of spoiler. […]
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes that soon to be free agent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, currently with the Cincinnati Reds, “fits the bill” for what the Mets need this winter. Heyman spoke with Sandy Alderson who revealed some of the things he’s considering as the Mets conclude their third losing season under his watch. “There’s no question long-term contracts carry risk, and right about the time you’re clearing payroll you can wind up right back where you started if […]
Baseball America has been rolling out some of their minor league postseason awards with the end of the season in sight. Yesterday, they named Byron Buxton their MiLB Player of the Year, and they released their Minor League All-Star team this morning. BA handed out first and second team honors, with Rafael Montero being the lone Met prospect to be honored. The Triple-A pitcher grabbed the final starting pitcher’s slot on the first-team. Here’s what Matt Eddy had to say about the […]
You might be frustrated and disgusted by watching the Mets lose to the Nationals, but it is far better than not having any Mets to watch at all. October has to be the worst month because there’s baseball, but baseball without the Mets. At least in November there’s the start of the free-agent season, highlighted by the Winter Meetings, which is winter’s World Series. January? You can see spring training from there, and February, regardless […]
Time does not heal all wounds. The pain of what happened on September 11th, 2001 has not subsided. We can put the tragedy of what took place on that day in the back of our minds, but we can never put it out of our hearts. Every single day, Americans are still dying because of 9/11. Their lives continue to raise the death toll of that tragic day. Let’s take some time to remember those […]
WHO WERE THOSE UNMASKED MEN LURKING IN THE METS DUGOUT LAST NIGHT? Mets third baseman David Wright, insists he will play for the Mets again this season although he admits that time is running out. Wright, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 3 with a strained hamstring, returned to New York from Florida on Monday to continue his rehab and was in the dugout last night with fellow injured teammate Matt Harvey. […]
