When we signed journey-man Carlos Torres to a deal in the off-season, I was somewhere between disappointment and apathy, honestly. I thought that he would serve no purpose on this team and that he was wasting space in a Triple-A rotation. I made comments akin to, “This is exactly the reason no other Triple-A affiliate wants to take the field for the Mets.” And yes, as he struggled to pitch in the PCL, I was […]
In a must-read column for the National Sports Journalism Center website at Indiana University, Ed Sherman delves into the subject that neither MLB or Fox Sports wants to talk about – and that is four straight years of significant declines in viewership ratings for the All-Star Game. Here is a small part taken from the full article which you can read here. Now let’s not get into a prolonged discussion on how the TV landscape has […]
From Jon Heyman, CBS Sports: Bobby Bonilla’s increasingly infamous deferred compensation arrangement with the Mets is actually two separate deals totaling more than $40 million, not only the $30 million that has been previously reported, people familiar with the world’s longest sports deal told CBSSports.com. Plus, a third 25-year Mets deferred compensation agreement, this one for former pitcher Bret Saberhagen, is also on the team’s books, bringing the grand total to close to $50 million.

Keith Law is pissing me off more and more lately. His apparent dislike of anything associated with the Mets becomes more blatant and over-the-top as time goes by. This week, he really went out of his way to kill the Mets system is a series of questions posed to him during a chat on ESPN Insider.

Echoing the sentiments around MMO, Mets special assistant J.P. Ricciardi told Jim Duquette of SiriusXM Radio this morning that the team is not looking to trade outfielder Marlon Byrd, and that it would take something serious for the Mets to move him. Byrd, who is batting .263 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI this season, spoke to MMO on Wednesday and expressed his desire to remain with the Mets, but understood that baseball is […]
Let’s get this 2013 MLB All-Star FanFest started… On your marks, get set, go… MLB mascots kick off today’s 5K All Star Run… John Franco wants to know if there’s a Doctor in the house… Mookie and Ozzie and some dude with a big head… I have no idea who what that green thing in the White Sox hat is….

T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish of ESPN are reporting that the MLB is set to suspend a number of players connected to the BioGenesis clinic, headlined by Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. The suspensions are set to take place post-AS Break. Braun has become vilified in the media because of his attitude towards this whole investigation, and the article highlights the fact that he refused to answer any questions that MLB asked him. Granted, I’m fairly […]
