Now that the Mets have drafted UNC product Matt Harvey with the seventh overall pick in the draft, the task at hand now becomes signing him before the August 16th deadline.

Baseball is a long season and when a team under-performs the way the Mets are you always hear the usual fire the manger and/or general manager.  I support that 100%.  Jerry and Omar absolutely need to go.  Omar has done a horrible job of building the franchise and Jerry Manuel is just not a manager […]
