Collins Pulling Gee Was A Mistake That Didn’t End Up Hurting The Team

Updated with thoughts by Joe D. on 5/31 When Terry Collins removed Dillon Gee in the eighth inning last night after registering one out, I like everyone else who were interacting on Twitter busted a gasket. Here was Gee, pitching the game of his life and in the midst of retiring 15 consecutive batters – including […]

Matt Harvey Deserves A Better Supporting Cast

I’ve run out of superlatives to describe how incredible Matt Harvey is. After every start he gives me more to love about him. Last night, it was three things; how he battled Robinson Cano, how he reacted after giving up that run off a changeup, and how he was the first Met out of the […]

Murphy Drives In Go-Ahead Run In Mets 2-1 Victory Over Yankees

Jon Niese started and despite not having his best stuff, he cruised through five scoreless innings. But then in the top of the sixth, centerfielder Brett Gardner tagged him for a leadoff triple and came around to score when Jayson Nix singled him home in the next at-bat for the first run of the game. After […]

Former And Current Mets Abound On All-WBC Team

The 2013 All-World Baseball Classic team was announced Wednesday, and the squad is riddled with Mets both current and former alike. Of course “Captain America” aka David Wright, who’s .438 batting average and 10 RBIs earned him the nickname made the team. Wright was also the only American to make the cut. From the reigning […]

Mets Should Tell Boras, Hell No On Robinson Cano!

The funniest thing I heard with the Yankees and their contract negotiations with Robinson Cano is Scott Boras would take this to the open market to possibly draw the Mets in as an antagonist. That’s what Boras does, and the presence of other teams – some out of the desire to make things difficult for the Yankees […]

Is Daniel Murphy The Answer At Second Base?

It seems that there is a portion of the fan base that still doesn’t think that Daniel Murphy is the second baseman of the future for the New York Mets. Maybe it’s because it looks as if Murphy is an extra outfielder at times, based on where he positions himself (short right field), but I […]

Regrets… I Have A Few…

How many times have we seen this already this season… I’m talking about Terry Collins lamenting about what he could have done to prevent another bone-jarring moment in a Mets loss. He has compiled enough material to complete his own personal volume of a Book of Lamentations. Last night, was another typical Mets loss you […]
