The 2016 Mets Are A Team You Can Believe In

Here it is, my friends. Our season-long faith in the Orange & Blue is about to be rewarded as the New York Mets find themselves one win away (or one San Francisco Giants loss away) from clinching a coveted Wild Card spot in this year’s postseason. The Mets can seal the deal as soon as […]

Patience with Jay Bruce has Paid Dividends

Jay Bruce is no longer the red-headed step-child we all thought he was. Bruce is officially on the loose. Bruce hit rock-bottom as a Met on September 20, being pulled from a game in favor of Eric Campbell in a run producing situation. Many spelled that as the end for a player who just could […]

Talkin’ Mets: Tragedy Strikes, Final Week Won’t Be Easy

I kick off tonight’s show looking at the week ahead and comparing the schedules of the Mets, Cards and Giants.

Does Jay Bruce Have a Postseason Roster Spot?

After 40 games played entering Wednesday night’s game, I think we can all agree that Jay Bruce has been a major bust since joining the Mets. His numbers since the trade that brought him over from Cincinnati are cringe-worthy; a stat line of .176/.255/.289 with four home runs, 11 runs batted in, 14 walks, and […]

Bruce-Less? I Don’t Think So…

It was ugly… It was glaring… It was tough to take. Watching right fielder Jay Bruce strike out with the bases loaded in the first inning against Tanner Roark on Wednesday, in a game we lost 1-0 to the Washington Nationals, had my insides in an uproar. I’m not sure why it bothered me so […]
