Fun Again… At Least For Two Nights

I haven’t posted much this season because there really hasn’t been much to write about. Sure, if I were a professional writer I’d find what to write about but I do this for fun and not for work. But after the last two nights there is finally something fun to write about. Back to back […]



Should Ike Davis Go To AAA?

There’s a lot of talk lately about Ike Davis possibly being sent to the minors due to his current slump. Honestly I would have no problem with this if not for one issue. Davis proved something to me last season when he managed to hit 32 home runs. But he struck out 141 times too. […]



Santana Done?

The day we all feared has finally come. The Mets announced yesterday that Johan Santana has a recurrence of the same injury that kept him out for the whole 2011 season and likely has thrown his last pitch as a Met, possibly of his career. I actually did not have very high expectations for Santana […]



Atchison and Hawkins: Low Risk Veteran Presence?

The Mets have added two righthanders to the bullpen in the last 24 hours when they signed Scott Atchison and LaTroy Hawkins. To say that these are not spectacular signings is an understatement but these two could be of help. The level of experience in the Mets bullpen is lacking in experience. Names like Josh […]



Backman To Manage AAA Again

In a move that didn’t surprise me in the least the Mets announced today that Wally Backman will return as manager of their AAA affiliate which will be in Las Vegas this season. Backman guided last year’s AAA affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons, to a 67-76 record and has a career minor league managerial record of […]



Mr. Met Doesn’t Belong On A Cap

The Mets have redesigned their batting practice cap to feature Mr. Met on the front. I can sum up my feelings about this in three letters: WTF?!?! I like Mr. Met as much as the next guy but putting him on the front of the cap is the wrong move. I know it sounds old […]



Dickey Deal Reportedly Done

Reports today are that R.A. Dickey has agreed to a contract extension which would allow his trade to the Toronto Blue Jays to be completed. Josh Thole and a “non-elite minor leaguer” will join Dickey in Toronto. In exchange the Mets will get catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, catcher John Buck, pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard and […]



Valdespin’s Marlins Cap

Mets utility man Jordany Valdespin posted a few pics to hi Twitter feed today including this one of him wearing a Miami Marlins cap. Obviously the cap has no bearing on where his allegiance is as a player but it is uncool. The last thing fans want to see is one of their players wearing […]
