Rallying Behind Carlos Beltran

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 […]

An article by posted on November 17, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday, I was quite surprised by the trade that sent Dan Uggla to the Braves for utility infielder Omar Infante and reliever Mike Dunn. The fact that he was traded isn’t what surprised me. We all knew the writing was on the wall once Uggla turned down a four-year deal worth $48 million dollars from the […]

Over the weekend, Sandy Alderson met with Luis Castillo in the Dominican Republic, and Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan while in Puerto Rico. I would have loved to be a fly in the room when he got some alone time with these guys. I wonder what if any questions were broached? Was Luis […]

Will Mets Explore Trading Reyes?

An article by posted on October 7, 2010 0 Comments

Whomever the Mets hire as general manager I will be curious to see his take on Jose Reyes. Will he believe the team should be built around Reyes, or would the Mets be better served to deal him as an attempt to plug several holes, notably in the rotation and bullpen? The path of least […]

It’s safe to say that while we all may be Mets fans to the core, there’s a part of us – our own dark sides if you will – that have had our collective fill of the 2010 New York Mets and want to see it all torn down, brick by brick, player by player, […]

Through these four starts, Gee has thrown four quality starts, giving up only six runs in 27 innings of work (a 2.00 ERA). Though his first two starts […]
