David Wright, Daniel Murphy And The Year Of The Intercostal Injury

This spring has been rocked by injuries for the Mets thus far. Maybe it’s because we live in New York, and hear about the injuries more, but it doesn’t seem like as many teams have suffered the amount of injuries that the two New York teams have this spring. While injuries are sometimes unpreventable and part […]

Who Were the Biggest Winners and Losers for the Mets This Spring?

Clayton – Collin Cowgill is the biggest winner. The guy has yet to see a single pitch for the Mets in the regular season and he already has the number and comparison to a Mets great, not to mention most likely a starting outfield job. My loser is Johan Santana. It could have just as […]

It Will Be An Interesting April For The Mets

Interesting April? That is for sure. Expectations are clearly low for the Mets this year. However, they were also low last year, and the team gave fans at least three months of a season before falling off a cliff. Yes, on paper this team doesn’t look good, and they have been hampered by an astonishing […]

Matt Harvey On Opening Day… Throw Us A Bone Please?

I get it. I really do. At this point, no Mets’ fan in their right mind thinks Johan Santana is going to be ready for Opening Day. And it appears the start will go to Jonathon Niese. And out of any other options in the rotation, Niese is probably the one that most deserves it. […]

David Wright is correct, his rib injury could have happened anytime. It could have happened carrying groceries from the car. That isn’t the issue. The issues are Wright was injured while at the World Baseball Classic – whatever he was doing at the time, it was away from the Mets – and did not report […]

A Little Mets In The Tropics

I spent last week on Lanai, a beautiful and remote Hawaiian Island. Sports, for the most part, was far from my mind. To say that is a rarity for me, is a major understatement. Still weeks from Opening Day, I considered it an opportunity to relax before the frenzy of another baseball season began. Wearing […]
