Mets 2012 Season Will Be A Near Total Loss

Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago.  Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries.  In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s […]

These Mets Won’t Get It Done

It’s all fun and games until the Mets find themselves a half a dozen games back in the division and fading. That’s certainly how it feels today as the Mets limp into DC with their season on the ropes. With six games against the NL East leading Washington Nationals over the next nine days, the […]

Backup Catcher Seems To Be Least Of Mets Concerns

With the Mets seen as the probable last-place team in the National League East when the season began, it was a pleasant surprise to end the first half with a 46-40 record. This leaves the Mets right in the thick of the National League Wild Card race and still contending for the division. After dropping […]

LaRussa Says Matt Cain, Not R.A. Dickey, Will Start All-Star Game

It must be great to be a San Francisco Giants fan. Not only did a late push of fan votes elect three starting position players (Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and Melky Cabrera) to the NL lineup, but now the Giants will also have Matt Cain as the starting pitcher. John Harper of the New York […]

Mets Go Streaking..Again

June was set to be a real test for this team.  More than 20 games against teams which boast better than .500 records stood in the Mets path a few short weeks ago and ultimately, they’ve navigated the month well, but that’s not to say the month of June hasn’t been frustrating. Win three..lose three..win […]

So How Much Is RA Dickey Worth?

Riddle me this… You have a 37 year old pitcher, a knuckleballer, in the midst of the greatest season of his career who has become a fan favorite and is well on his way to earning a second contract extension since joining the team in 2010.  How on earth do you approach that contract negotiation?  […]

RA Dickey – From Journeyman to “The Man”

Professional sports, especially baseball, have a way of sensationalizing the efforts of millionaires.  These folks are after all only human, but even still there are times when things just seem too good to be true.  Take for instance the career path of RA Dickey.  I would call his time with the Mets a resurgence,  but […]

Looking Back At The Trades Sandy Alderson Should Have Made In 2011

Last season I thought I knew what was going to happen. I figured we probably would not be in contention for a playoff spot, but I was excited about the possibility of reloading at the trade deadline. We had guys like Beltran, Reyes, Dickey, Izzy, Hairston, Byrdak and Krod. All of whom I felt had […]
