Market Definition of Wright’s Value

Just in time for the holiday season we finally have an estimate of David Wright‘s dollar value on the market. This comes courtesy of the Tampa Bay Rays and Evan Longoria. Longoria signed an extension through the 2022 season giving him 10-years worth $136.6 million. The extension is actually worth $16.7 million a year (starting […]



Hit Braun = Hit Wright?

People are talking a lot about Terry Collins taking David Wright out of last night’s game as well as Wright’s reaction. Honestly I’ve been waiting to see Wright behave that way for years. For those who don’t know what happened: After a solo home run by Rickie Weeks in the seventh inning Mets reliever D.J. […]



Enjoy It While It Lasts

The Mets are a mess and it’s my fault. This year I have watched 4 Mets games live (as opposed to watching on DVR or just highlights on various sportscasts). Three of those games are the Mets 3 losses so far on the season. In the fourth game the Mets were losing while I watched […]



Wright Needs A New Six Pack

There are many injury worries in Mets camp this year (which seems to be par for the course for recent Mets camps) but the one that seems to be talked about the most lately is the one suffered by David Wright. Wright was in New York so team doctors could get a better look and […]



Minaya’s Deal With The Devil

Ever since Omar Minaya left the organization I’ve wanted to believe the Mets bad injury history would be over. And just when I’m starting to believe that it is the team is hit with an injury bug. Pedro Beato, Scott Hairston, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Lucas Duda and Reese Havens all have been recovering from injuries this […]



Spring Is Where Questions Start Getting Answered

This is an incredible time of year for baseball. No matter how many questions a team may have as the offseason ends there is great anticipation. How will the Mets cover for the lost offense and leadoff characteristics of Jose Reyes? Will Johan Santana be able to return to his old form? Is there a […]



Almost Spring

The agony (if you’re a Jets fan) and ecstasy (if you’re a Giants fan) of the football season is now behind us. With the Giants Superbowl victory on Sunday and parade yesterday the NFL news cycle is now complete. We can now start thinking about baseball. I’m not one to analyze rosters through the offseason […]



Goodbye, Jose!

I was going to write something about the Jets today (and I still may) but then the Jose Reyes news broke and I feel I must comment about it. I suppose Reyes’ departure is no surprising but that doesn’t change the emotional reactions we’re all going through over this news. Yes, he’s probably the best […]



Outfield Dimensions Are Not The Problem

Metsblog posted a story this morning about alleged internal discussion within the Mets organization regarding changing the color of the outfield wall at CitiField to the same blue color that the outfield wall at Shea Stadium had. Though I’d like to see this as well as some adjustment of the outfield dimensions (though not as […]



Notes From Last Night’s Game (7/25/2011)

R.A. Dickey had a good outing. Though he allowed 8 hits in his 6.2 innings of work he only allowed 2 runs while walking 1 and striking out 7. David Wright committed his third error in 4 games back from the DL. Four games is a small sample size and is no cause for alarm […]
