Featured Post: What Would It Cost To Keep Cespedes?

The move to obtain Yoenis Cespedes to bolster the (deservedly) maligned Met offense has signaled an important shift in the thinking of the club’s front office. Following a string of losing seasons rivaled only by the desultory performance of the Houston Astros over the same period, the Sandy Alderson regime who have steadfastly adhered to […]

Mets Have Become A Force To Be Reckoned With

Las Vegas bookmaker Bovada released their latest World Series odds on Thursday, and the New York Mets continue to shoot up their rankings. The Mets now have the 5th best odds among all MLB teams at 9/1 which also ranks third in the National League. Shockingly (not really!) the Washington Nationals have dropped out of their […]

Niese Says Revamped Offense Relieves Pressure To Pitch Perfect

Jon Niese turned in another strong performance last night as he allowed just two runs while striking out five batters in seven innings. Despite his struggles earlier in the season, Niese has been one of the most consistent and unheralded members of the Mets’ rotation. In 135 innings this year, Niese owns a 3.46 ERA […]

A Brief Letter of Thanks to Sandy Alderson

Dear Mr. Alderson, I would genuinely like to thank you for quite literally just doing something; actually, as of Monday, July 27, two somethings. Though there are certainly more impactful hitters around the league than Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe, it is refreshing to see that you’re at least now beginning to patch up the […]

The Mets’ Collapsed Narrative

It’s easy for those of us caught up in the day-to-day roller coaster ride of this Mets season to forget the narrative that most everyone agreed had to define the team if they were to contend. Dividing the squad into four parts, it’s safe to say three of those parts have fallen into place just […]

Time For Mets Leadership To Stop Talking And Start Doing

I applaud Buster Olney of ESPN for the thorough summation of the state of the Mets and his conclusion that the inaction by Mets leadership has been inexplicable and inexcusable. Olney implored the Mets front office to be creative and try something different. “Do something. Add something. Get some help.” He points to the Washington […]

Nothing To Rumors Connecting Mets To Justin Upton and Carlos Gomez

Disputing a couple of reports from Jon Heyman and Ken Rosenthal before the weekend, MLB Network radio analyst Jim Duquette says there are “nothing to the rumors connecting the Mets to outfielders Justin Upton, Carlos Gomez and Jay Bruce right now.” Mets beat writers seem to agree as they all seem to have the Mets […]

California Dreaming: DeGrom Wraps Up A Stellar First Half

How about that… The Mets wrapped up what was supposed to be a tough West Coast road trip by taking two of three from both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants to give them a neat and tidy 4-2 California swing. Make no mistake the offense still has a long way to […]
