One of the things I want to see more than anything else this offseason, is at least one addition by subtraction move before the start of Spring Training. I know we’re not going to sign Cliff Lee even though we could desperately use him in our rotation. I know we’re not going to sign Carl Crawford, […]

In a series of tweets, Andy Martino of the Daily News revealed that a Mets insider is suggesting that the team should give embattled starting pitcher, Oliver Perez, a shot at filling a situational lefty role in the bullpen next season.

The free agent class for pitchers this off-season is simple.  There’s Cliff Lee and there’s everyone else.   That being said (sorry if I just brought back bad memories of Omar Minaya), since the Mets do not appear to be contestants on “Who Wants To Be A Lee-lionaire?”, there is one member of “everyone else” […]

Alderson Should Bring Hudson To The Mets

As Sandy Alderson continues to hire his buddies and show no urgency in hiring a manager, he needs to consider bringing Orlando Hudson to the New York Mets.

I’ve tried my very best to call upon the better angels to guide my thoughts on the recent firings of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel.  What seems to be becoming the yearly sideshow where the Wilpons are apologizing in some fashion for the Mets abject failures, I can finally say it’s taken its toll. Normally I’m a […]

It would have been nice to end the season with one more win today, but I think we all saw the writing on the wall the second we saw Oliver Perez emerge from the bullpen gate. Still, I am very proud of the many accomplishments that so many of our players made this season, especially […]
