It’s really hard to believe, but the Mets have gotten worse this off-season. They haven’t done anything to improve on their 2012 season. In fact, they lost a couple of players that helped them to their mediocre performance in 2012. There was a reason why the Mets waited until the Winter Meetings to sign David Wright to his extension, and have him stroll into that press conference in the awesome new uniform. All of a […]
Now that the Mets have locked up David Wright to an extension, they will probably shift their attention to the 2012 Cy Young award winner, RA Dickey. Could the reason why Wright finally agreed to sign on the dotted line be because he and Dickey are truly a package deal, and now the Mets are going to lock up Dickey next? Maybe the Mets told Wright they were going to sign Dickey, and it prompted David to finally agree […]
The catcher position is one that the Mets have been trying to address for a few seasons now. Josh Thole has started the most games behind the plate since the days of Mike Piazza and then Paul LoDuca, but Thole is far from the traditional offensive catcher. Unless you are Charles Johnson behind the plate, the organization and fans are going to want some sort of offensive production. Johnson was never known for his offense, […]
Now that RA Dickey has won the Cy Young, it’s inevitable that the talks swirling around the Mets will be regarding whether Dickey should be traded in the coming days/weeks. David Wright’s contract talks have taken a back seat for now. Trading Dickey: Is it the right thing to do, or is it the wrong thing to do? Everyone has been presenting solid evidence to back up which side of the argument they support. Truth […]
“Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.” – Yogi Berra Everyone loves a good “Yogism.” The funny thing about that one in particular, is that it makes absolutely no sense, and yet it makes perfect sense at the same time. Yogi’s math didn’t add up, but he was definitely on to something. Psychologists are more convinced than ever that our lives gravitate toward the directions of our most dominant thoughts. In […]
So by now, everyone has heard the news that Mike Pelfrey will not be tendered this off-season. This allows him to freely seek employment with other teams. The day this was announced (Tuesday I believe), I happened to be listening to the Boomer and Carton Radio Show while I was driving in my car. Boomer said something that immediately resonated with me, and probably many other Mets fans that were listening at that time. He […]
For the most part, Mets fans were pleasantly surprised with the production of the Mets pitching staff in 2012. The bullpen kept us on the edge of our seats the majority of the season, but the starters were one of the bright spots for the Mets. None shone brighter than the ace of the staff, RA Dickey. Some injuries prevented the Mets starting rotation from reaching its full potential, but when all the starters […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN tweeted yesterday that Jordany Valdespin would be playing right field in the Dominican Winter League. This went against what most believed – that Valdespin would be playing second base this winter. I recently did an end of the year review for Valdespin on another Mets website, so this is the perfect time for me to share my perspective on what this means for the Mets in 2013. My Thoughts on Valdespin […]
I don’t know about other Mets fans, but there is a little voice in the back of my head that keeps telling me not to trust all the information being leaked to the media regarding the David Wright contract negotiations. When I first read it, I thought the Mets were finally making things right with the fans. This was music to the Mets fans’ ears. Now that I have had time to digest it all, I’m starting […]
