My Thoughts On Bay Signing

Upon hearing the news that the Mets signed Jason Bay yesterday a friend of mine, who coincidentally is a Phillie fan, asked me via Facebook what my thoughts of Bay as a Met are. My response was as follows: I think the fourth year wasn’t necessary. He’s a good player and definitely adds some pop […]

Be Patient, A Big Move Will Come

It’s been a long offseason for Mets fans as the team has not yet made a major move. If my Twitter feed is any indication it looks like Mets fans are getting increasingly antsy as they wait for Omar Minaya to pull the trigger on a big deal. It’s times like these that I feel […]
