You’ve Met The Citizens, Now Meet The Mayors Of Panic City

On Sunday, general manager Sandy Alderson walked by the media at Citi Field after the Mets completed a sweep of the Reds and said to reporters: “Here they come, the citizens of Panic City.” (Adam Rubin, ESPN NY) Despite the high of sweeping the lowly Reds, Rubin thinks it may be premature for Sandy to […]

When The Bullet Hits The Bone

I wanted to share a conversation I had with a follower on Twitter tonight. It started out talking about Cesar Puello, but quickly veered into the Josh Edgin situation and how I believed the Mets dropped the ball this Winter by not bringing in a proven lefty reliever – which by the way was supposed […]

How Low Can You Go? Mets Peddling Relevance On A Shoestring…

I had some cheap friends when I was younger. Guys who had jobs and money but who didn’t like to spend any of it. I’m sure you all remember the type. The sort who liked to spend other people’s money and never smoked their own cigarettes. Reminds me of the Chris Rock skit from “I’m […]

Spending Does Not Equate To Success

Cringing because the Mets failed to acquire Ben Zobrist or Ian Desmond? Love to criticize the Wilpons for running a small market team in the big apple? You may disagree with me, but I don’t their either of those opinions are valid, and I’m here to tell you why. I know the Mets’ payroll has […]

Have Your Opinions About Ownership Softened?

How easily can your convictions be swayed? Is it possible that you can be so incredibly passionate about a particular important issue one day, and then a week or two later you find yourself waning and teetering, and before you know it you’ve done a complete 180 and flip-flopped on your previous firmly held conviction?

Interview With Fan Behind Mets Billboard and #FREEMETSFANS Campaign

Here’s a Q&A I conducted with Gary Palumbo on Friday. Salty Gary, as he is better known in the MMO community, is the Mets fan behind the Twitter account @MetsBillboard and the #FREEMETSFANS KickStarter Campaign to erect two “Sell the Team” billboards on Roosevelt Ave. – a stone’s throw away from Citi Field. What inspired […]

Should Mets Sign Free Agent Closer David Robertson?

Daily News columnist John Harper believes the Mets should do something “eye-popping” and sign free-agent closer David Robertson. Harper is skeptical of the Mets closer situation and asks, “Do you really trust Jenrry Mejia?” He refers to Mejia and Jeurys Familia as a tightrope act and adds that even before Bobby Parnell got hurt he […]

I’ll Take “Worst Owners In Baseball” For $500, Alex…

Alex – The answer is… Because the Wilpons had no money after becoming embroiled in a second Ponzi Scheme with arch criminal Bernie Madoff. Joe D. – Why didn’t the Mets sign Jose Reyes? DING, DING, DING, DING, DING…. It looks like I missed out on all the fun this morning where various Mets Twitter […]

The Seligification Of MLB

When Bud Selig came through town the other day backfiring like a rusty old Buick though a quiet neighborhood, I braced myself for what he might say half hoping he’d signal some disquiet over the recent discrimination lawsuit filed against our excellent COO Jeffrey Scott Wilpon, but there was nothing of the sort. No reservations, […]
