All was quiet in Port St. Lucie until, all of a sudden and without warning, Daniel Murphy heard a cry for help.

Who Should be on Mets Rushmore?

Four spots. 52 seasons. Who belongs on Mets Rushmore? Without a doubt, Tom Seaver. If there isn’t a Mets Rushmore without The Franchise, it’s just another rock. So how about the other three? We could go with Casey Stengel. His number is already retired and on the wall. We can go with Gil Hodges. His […]

Time For Mets To Put Up Or Shutup

I got a bit of a reaction yesterday after mentioning that despite the acquisitions of outfielders Chris Young and Curtis Granderson, and starting pitcher Bartolo Colon, the Mets are still sitting at about $82 million in payroll, and about $10 million less than last season. It seems like the Mets are looking to unload Ike Davis […]

The Long And The Short On Carlos Beltran

The Baseball Gods smiled down on Flushing all season. It seemed more than just a coincidence that as the Mets paid homage to the ‘86 Championship, 20 years later we were destined to again make the dream come true.

Hits & Misses: Johan Close To Deal, Ya Gotta Have Hart, Kemp Could Still Go
