Fire The Training Staff!

If ever there was an excuse to fire the Mets training staff it was last night when Jose Reyes was removed from the game in the second inning after tweaking his oblique injury. The Mets have called it “mild” but Reyes will be shut down until he is pain free. The fact that Reyes was […]

Stupid Is As KRod Does

Earlier this season Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Ryan Madson committed one of the stupidest acts a professional athlete can commit. After blowing a save in the 10th inning of a game against the San Francisco Giants Madson threw a temper tantrum during which he kicked a chair. Proving that the chair is mightier than the […]

Mets Need To Add To Player Leadership

Changing Managers Now Won’t Help

As optimistic as I try to be I have to believe that the Mets season is over. I don’t think we need to wait and see what happens on this road trip to call it. We Mets fans certainly know how badly a team with a 7.5 game lead in August must play to lose […]
