As we know, part of Sandy Alderson’s “Moneyball” approach is to find value where others aren’t looking. Toward that end, I have a great idea …
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up quick — so what are you giving the Irish person in your life? How about a gift that lasts a lifetime, and will benefit not only the direct recipient, but millions of kids? Donate $35 to the Field O’ Dreams fund raiser and you will get this official T-shirt [...]
Nationals 6 Mets 4 Does this count as a two-game series? Mets Game Notes Collin McHugh still doesn’t impress me with his stuff. But, it was his first appearance of the spring, so I won’t base my judgment on it. At some point, though, he’ll need to get more velocity and sink on the fastball, [...]
Hope springs eternal. Therefore, here is the most optimistic post you will read in 2013 at MetsToday.

You have less than one month to help build a ballpark in Ireland. Wait? Baseball in Ireland? Who plays baseball in Ireland? Plenty of folks — haven’t you ever seen the indie film Emerald Diamond? If not, trust me — baseball is being played in Ireland, by kids and adults of all ages. Here’s the [...]
Fear not, fans of Mets ownership: Fred Wilpon — the entire Wilpon family, in fact — and Saul Katz have pulled themselves out of debt. They are now free and clear to buy all the popsicle sticks, furniture, and junk bonds they want. The Mets, however, are still in the red.
