On December 8, 1977, the Mets were one of four teams involved in one of the most complex deals in the history of baseball. This was it : The Mets sent John Milner to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Atlanta Braves sent Willie Montanez to the New York Mets. The Texas Rangers sent Adrian Devine, Tommy Boggs, and Eddie Miller to the Atlanta Braves. The Texas Rangers sent a player to be named later and Tom [...]
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 by general manager Sandy Alderson that signaled that the team may be undergoing a rebuilding phase. Unfortunately, due to circumstances, [...]

Mark McGwire’s admission that he used steroids is both a black eye and a small weight off Major League Baseball’s collective shoulder at the same time. I mean, this wasn’t something we all didn’t know, but at the same time, it’s important for guys like Mac to come clean. After thrilling us with the Great Home Run Chase of 1998, we were owed the truth. I’m looking in your direction, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, [...]
For many years while the Atlanta Braves had a chokehold on the rest of the National League East, Turner Field was a veritable house of horrors for the New York Mets. Since it opened in 1997, the Mets are 34-66 at Turner Field and have had numerous crushing defeats, including some of the season-ending variety (see 1999 season). Last year, the Mets were 1-8 in Atlanta, easily their worst record against any team on the [...]
The Mets open up a four game series tonight with the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park. As a fan I really like the look PNC Park has, I just wish there were more fans in th seats. This is by no means a knock on Pirates fans. Its been 16 years since the Bucks have had a winning season. That is a season where they finished over.500. If you’re a Pirate fan, you are either [...]
Tonight the Mets return to Citi Field, banged up and bruised, but still only a game and a half behind the first place Phillies. Their next 13 games are to be played exclusively against the Washington Nationals, Florida Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates. These opponents have a combined record of 53-79. The Mets must take advantage of this opportunity so that the next time the Phillies come to Citi Field on June 9, it’ll be them [...]
