Mets Contact Boras; Would Consider Bringing Beltran Back In 2012

I loved this column from Bob Klapisch of The Record, where he sums up the sentiments and feelings of Carlos Beltran’s final moments at Citi Field in a Mets uniform. If anyone imagined an emotional send-off for Beltran, this wasn’t even close: The ovation from the Citi Field crowd was polite, but uninspired, lasting only a few seconds […]

Stop The Insanity! Domonic Brown For Beltran Is Pure Fantasy!

Once upon a time, in a land where Oreo Cookies grow on trees, and it always rained Skittles upon the land, the Mets acquired uber-prospect Domonic Brown from the Phillies from whence the Hershey River flowed. In return for their wonderful haul, the Mets happily exchanged their 34-year old right fielder with two bad knees, who adoring fans lovingly […]

Now that Francisco Rodriguez is off to Milwaukee, Sandy Alderson and the Mets have an extra $17.5 million off the books for next year.

With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Mets still appear uncertain about whether they’ll be buyers or sellers. Eventually, they’ll have to make a decision, and if they wind up being sellers, they possess several risky trade targets—possibly too risky to be thought of as rental players. The first of course is Jose Reyes. Though […]

Buffalo Bisons 4 – Norfolk Tides 3 Baby steps for Mark Cohoon. While today wasn’t a great start, it was his best start so far in Triple-A and a quality start to say the least. After giving up five earned runs and six earned runs twice in his first three starts he has only given […]

An article by posted on May 27, 2011 0 Comments

Amidst this crazy season, it’s easy to forget about a guy who most of upper management is hoping will be apart of the team’s future within the next few years. Flores, 19, is the prototypical Mets prospect in that he’s young and raw with unlimited amounts of potential. They signed him as an undrafted free […]

Doug’s Dugout: Wright Out, Father Time, Strike Now

An article by posted on May 16, 2011 0 Comments

In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: Striking while the iron is hot, Father Time, and other insipid thoughts. In around ten weeks Carlos Beltran will be an ex-Met. That is a foregone conclusion. His comeback is one of the only positive stories the Mets have written this year. But why wait? The iron is hot […]

Is F-Mart Still A Viable Prospect?

An article by posted on May 14, 2011 0 Comments

Fernando Martinez is 22, still young enough in the sport where he’s graded most on potential. However, the past few years have been rough on his body and he’s lost more games due to injury than anybody his age should have the right to. At one time Martinez was part of a group of three […]
