How Many Members of the Mets Front Office Does It Take to Change A Light Bulb?

A few weeks ago I did something all Mets fans do nowadays: I sat down to watch other teams play in the post-season. I had my Mets cap on, a can of Coke, some pretzels. And within 5 minutes I heard news that surprised me. The Indians were returning to the playoffs for the first […]

The source could not yet guarantee Backman’s return, noting it […]

Bronson Arroyo Looking For 2-Year Deal, Reds Could Trade Homer Bailey

Bronson Arroyo hasn’t heard from the Reds front office, reports Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. The longtime Reds pitcher knew that his last start of 2013 vs. the Pirates — where he allowed five homers — was possibly his final start with the club.

Loyalty and The Hindsight Blues

As one of Terry Collins’ most ardent supporters, I’m having a slight case of the “hindsight blues” today. Let me first start by saying, I think Terry Collins is a good manager for this team. You’ve heard it said before, and you’ll likely hear it again – “Baseball Managers don’t matter all that much.” It’s […]

NL Wildcard Preview: Reds at Pirates

Last night was just the opening act, tonight the playoffs officially begin! This year’s playoffs (minus not having the Mets) to me look to be very enjoyable on paper. I don’t think there is a team that I legitimately can say I have a strong feeling “should” win it all. Tonight, the Pittsburgh Pirates welcome […]

Could Dice-K Matsuzaka Be “That” Guy?

I’ll spare you the 50 word preamble as to why Sandy Alderson is looking to add a veteran starting pitcher this offseason… He just is and if you don’t know why, you must be new here. Yesterday, I was inspired to weigh in on Bronson Arroyo when I read a post elsewhere that called him […]

Mets Have 11th Worst Record, Alderson Not Concerned About Protected Pick

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mets GM Sandy Alderson is not as concerned about the protected draft pick as much as he is about rebuilding the credibility of the franchise. “I don’t view the draft-pick situation as relevant to what we’re doing here,” Alderson said. “We’re trying to build the credibility of the […]

Video: Juan Centeno Guns Down Billy Hamilton

During today’s Mets’ 1-0 win over the Reds, starting catcher Juan Centeno became the first backstop to ever catch Billy Hamilton stealing in the majors. After Hamilton legged out an infield single in the fifth inning, the 23-year old Centeno gunned a perfect throw to nail the speedster at second base. In case you missed it, here’s […]
