Does Thole Have Value As Dickey’s Personal Catcher?

I have never put a lot of stock in the whole personal catcher debate. I guess it could possibly be more of an issue when you are dealing with a knuckleballer, and you have a guy who knows how to catch it. It is a difficult pitch to catch, and since Josh Thole has been relatively successful in handling R.A. […]

Is Daniel Murphy The Answer At Second Base?

It seems that there is a portion of the fan base that still doesn’t think that Daniel Murphy is the second baseman of the future for the New York Mets. Maybe it’s because it looks as if Murphy is an extra outfielder at times, based on where he positions himself (short right field), but I […]

Kirk Nieuwenhuis In Centerfield: A Good Plan, Or Act Of Desperation?

Unless the Wilpons hit the Powerball jackpot in the next couple of months, the Mets are not likely to sign any big name free-agents, a la Josh Hamilton, to play centerfield. Barring any off-season trades (I don’t see anything significant occurring), Kirk Nieuwenhuis will be the Mets opening day centerfielder. Beam me up, Sandy. Captain […]

How To Fix The Mets According To The Movies

The four things the Mets have to do this off-season to keep the Moneyball project going strong according to the movies… 1. Hire Jonah Hill immediately to assist Sandy Alderson in the front office. 2. Trade Ike Davis. Find a guy with nerve damage in his throwing arm to play first base. Why? Because walks are […]

Should The Mets Bring Back Kelly Shoppach?

As they close the door on yet another disappointing season, and start looking towards 2013, catcher is definitely one of the areas of concern for the New York Mets. Josh Thole isn’t coming around offensively, so the Mets brought in Shoppach earlier this year to see if he would be a viable option for 2013. […]

Remember When We Were MetsMerized In 2006?

Man, 2006 feels like so long ago now. That season was the most exciting one I have witnessed since the World Series run in 2000. The Mets were a juggernaut. We had swagger, power, pitching, speed. We had a attitude and everyone hated us, especially when Reyes, Delgado, and others would dance on the field. […]

David Wright: Best Met Ever?

With his third inning single last night, David Wright became the Mets’ all-time hits leader.  He did so in more than 500 fewer games, nearly 600 fewer plate appearances, and more than 700 fewer ABs than the team’s previous leader, Ed Kranepool.  Ultimately, this most recent record only scratches the surface of David Wright’s accomplishments […]

Met’s Won’t Release Jason Bay, So What’s Next For The Slugger?

It comes as no surprise that the New York Mets have gone on record as saying they will not be releasing Jason Bay prior to the 2013 season. With the amount of money that is invested in Jason Bay, it is better to hang on to him and see if he can turn it around, […]

Looking Ahead, Offense Should Be Mets Top Priority This Offseason

I know what you thinking.. How on earth could we spend the entire season talking about the bullpen…that woeful bullpen…and suddenly decide that the team’s offense should be the top priority this offseason?  Heres why: Mets rank 8th in MLB with 1,169 strike outs. Mets rank 22nd in MLB on the year, hitting just .242 […]

The San Francisco Giants Should Trade For David Wright

What the Mets should do with David Wright after the 2012 season has been the talk of the town as the season winds down. There has been a healthy mix of opinions on what the Mets should actually do with regards to David – some argue to hang on to the aging third baseman, while […]
