Let me begin by saying that you’ll get no argument from me as to who is the superior starting pitcher between Roy Halladay and John Lackey. Obviously, it’s Halladay and it’s not even close. If Doc was pitching for a high powered offense like the Yankees, he may have been a 25 game winner this […]

These last four games have been great for us Mets fans and for the Mets themselves, but they can’t be making Omar Minaya’s job any easier.  With the Mets sinking fast at 7 games under .500 and in fourth place in the NL East after Friday’s loss in Houston, Minaya had to be thinking about […]

With Jon Heyman standing by his report that the Mets turned down an offer from the Blue Jays for Roy Halladay, it got me thinking about what the Mets and their farm system would look like in the aftermath of a Halladay trade. Surprisingly to myself, I came to the conclusion that what’s left of […]
