Talking with Jason Bay was one of the highlights of the day. He said he has felt good since the end of September and has no restrictions moving forward. I was ecstatic when the Mets signed Bay last offseason. I always thought that when he played for the Pirates that he would be a great […]

Highlights From The Carlos Beltran Interview

An article by posted on December 17, 2010 0 Comments

To be honest, in preparing for the Mets Holiday party, I was pretty sure there would be one player I would not get the chance to talk to: Carlos Beltran. With all the hype surrounding a possible position change or even a trade, I figured Beltran would briefly talk to the writers and reporters and […]

Entering only his second season in the big leagues, Ike Davis carried himself like a classy veteran at the Mets Holiday party on Tuesday. He was the friendliest of everyone there and genuinely seemed to have a good time handing out presents to the children. Naturally, the conversation began with the Cliff Lee signing with […]

Despite handing out gifts to 100 school children dressed in a hot Santa outfit, David Wright still talked for over 10 minutes with several bloggers at the Mets Holiday party on Tuesday. Wright played Santa for the second time, with the last time being back in 2006. It’s hard to believe, but Wright will now […]

It’s Always About The Money

I feel compelled to pen something before the end of this year, although it is a year that we would all like to forget as Mets fans.  We have had almost nothing to brag about during the off-season as fans of the Metropolitans except that we have returning players that may help us before the […]

Mets Rule V Draft. Another 2B Candidate?

An article by posted on December 9, 2010 0 Comments

What some Mets fans are going to have to start realizing is the simple fact that there is more to running a baseball organization than just offering up boat loads of money to free agents over 30 years old. That’s where we as a fan base are stuck. We see the Yankees do it, and […]

An article by posted on December 9, 2010 0 Comments

Let me start this post off by saying that when the offseason first started, I was firmly in the camp that suggested a Beltran trade, no matter how much money the Mets had to eat of his contract. The Mets were 48-40 at the All-Star break this year, and then Beltran returned which started the […]

So riddle me this, Batman: how does the third highest payroll in the National League translate to “The Mets don’t spend any money?” Fanbases from all over are a reactionary bunch.  I think it’s more pronounced in New York City, however, where high payrolls are the norm and superstars come in to sell jerseys and […]
