The decision on how the Mets handle Eric Young Jr. this offseason is tricky for me. On one hand, he played really good defense in left field this season, is one of the best base-stealers in the league, by all accounts is a team first player, and for whatever reason, the Mets seem to win, […]

A parent recently told me an inspiring story of sportsmanship, from a Flagler Police Athletic League playoff game.

Sandy Alderson, J.P. Ricciardi, John Ricco and Paul DePodesta were all on hand to host a Hot Stove Talk with Season Ticket holders on Wednesday at Citi Field. The Mets tweeted many of the responses which I thought was very cool of them and a few of them shed some light on a lot of […]
