An article by posted on June 14, 2010 0 Comments

Just because Roy Oswalt told a friend he would accept a trade to the Mets doesn’t mean he’s in Manhattan on the off-day looking at apartments. Depending on what “friend” you talk to, Oswalt would also accept trades to Philadelphia, St. Louis, the Yankees and Washington Nationals. However, if it means getting out of Houston, […]

Hisanori Takahashi will get another chance partly because he deserves it, but also because the Mets don’t have much choice. Takahashi has started four games; two sparkling and two stinkers. What the Mets have learned is when the unraveling starts it comes quickly, and trouble usually comes around the fifth and sixth innings. He began […]

Perhaps to some a typically bad CW network soap opera. It’s your choice. The Mets are in my opinion, just about beyond […]
