Justin Turner: The One That Got Away

On December 2nd, 2013 the Mets made a decision that looms large on their current roster when they decided to non-tender Justin Turner.

It’s Time For The Mets To Define The Moment

Ah yes, that wonderful time of the year when every Mets fan who has been waiting for this team to fail can pop out of their hole and hold up their “I told you so!” sign. It’s truly one of my favorite times of the year because you see and hear almost the same argument […]

Bombs Away: Dillon Gee Roughed Up PCL-Style

What an inauspicious return to the mound for Dillon Gee, who made his first start for Triple-A Las Vegas tonight. Gee, who came so close to being a former Met this past week, tossed five innings and gave up six runs, all earned, on seven hits including two doubles and two homers. The veteran right-hander […]
