Has Eric Young Jr. Done Enough To Warrant The Left Field Job In 2014?

Ever since we acquired Eric Young Jr. from Colorado after they placed him on waivers, I never looked at him as anything more than a utility outfielder. I saw a player who was taking advantage of his increased playing time which came as a result of flops by Collin Cowgill, Lucas Duda, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and […]

Is Terry Collins The Best Choice To Lead The Mets Going Forward?

I like Terry Collins. He’s feisty. He competes. He never cries over what he doesn’t have. He has high expectations for those under his command. Collins has been surprisingly adept at handling the New York media during some very difficult seasons, and, for the most part, seems to have maintained his player’s respect. In fact, the Terry Collins […]

This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: A Soundtrack For Last Night’s Mets Loss Edition

Last nights game between the Mets and the Cleveland  Indians was stomach churning bad. That first inning pitched by Jon Niese made me wish that Shaun Marcum was still with the team (well not really). All I know is that after viewing last night’s game, I have finally come to terms with the fact that […]
