Are The New York Mets Really Rebuilding From The Ground Up?

We have heard that the Mets are going through a complete overhaul, rebuilding the organization from the ground up. Until the trade that sent RA Dickey to the Blue Jays for prominent prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard, it sure didn’t look like a team that was rebuilding. The Dickey trade was the first action taken […]

The More Things Change…The Worse They Get?

I would never get through the endless cold dark winters if it wasn’t for old Mets videos and Ken Burns. Last night I watched Shea Goodbye: 45 Years of Amazin’. A great documentary, it details the history of the Mets at Shea. As I watched Ray Knight round third with his hands on his head […]

Believe It Or Not, The Mets Have Gotten Worse

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 […]

Rebuild Of The New York Mets Will Begin This Week

It has been a long time coming, but its realistic to think this could be the week the Mets finally turn the corner.  Since arriving in Queens following the completion of the 2010 season, Sandy Alderson has done little more than cut the fat.  Crippled by the bloated contracts issued by his predecessor, Omar Minaya, […]

A Look At The New York Mets Top Catching Prospects

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, […]
