Should Mets Clean the Farm for a Pitcher?

As you know, MetsToday welcomes feedback, commentary, questions, and opinions from you, the visitor. Usually the discussion takes place in the comments section, but sometimes a question comes up that doesn’t apply to a specific post.

Should Luis Castillo Lead Off?

From the MetsToday mail bag, a reader suggests: Can Castillo be our leadoff man? A high OBP. Can still steal some. And not enough power for driving runners in. Perfect for when nobody is on base. I know the argument for him at number 2 is so that he can move the runner over. But […]

Do you think it’s possible for the Mets to make a trade to bring in a left-handed-hitting slugger this season, say Jason Vargas to the Blue […]

Why So Orange?

MetsToday reader Sammy from Secaucus asks, “Why is the SNY staff’s skin so orange?”. Good question, Sammy. No one’s quite sure. Lee Mazzilli, for one, looks like Tony Soprano meets the Great Pumpkin. It could be all the carrot juice they’re drinking during commercials. Or perhaps the makeup crew is trying to match the Mets’ […]

A Less Noble Answer

Can Marty Noble be any more condescending to Mets fans? Can he be any more pandering to the Mets’ executives and PR staff that keep his wallet filled? Probably not, so once a week we’ll pick a fair question or two from Marty’s “Mailbag” on Mets.com and re-answer it for the nice fan who asked […]
