Omar Minaya Flies Coach, Gets Heckled

Well, it’s come to this… Omar Minaya was spotted on a JetBlue flight to Chicago.

Breaking News: K-Rod Ain’t So Tough

Image via Hot Foot Admit it… you thought K-Rod was cool. His take-no-prisoners approach to baseball and life really spoke to your sensibilities as a Mets fan.

Mets Demote Feliciano, Release Light-Hitting 2B

In order to free up room for the recently promoted Fernando Martinez and Ruben Tejada, the Mets have demoted Jesus Feliciano and released a light-hitting second baseman. No, not Luis Castillo!
