Today’s Positive Thought: Mets Starting Pitching

Postgame recap for game three’s loss will come later tonight, after I’m able to view the game via the magic of DVR. In the meantime, today’s positive thought for Mets fans is this:

Today’s Positive Thought: Bullpen

I’ve been inspired by visitors in the comments section to try to come up with positive thoughts. Some say I’m occasionally negative (at times ornery, believe it or not!) in my blogging about the Mets. So here is today’s positive thought for the Mets: it won’t take much for the bullpen to improve upon its […]

Should Mets Fans Root for Wins or Losses?

At 63-75, Mets are currently a full game ahead of the Phillies in the NL East standings. However, that also places them in a tie with the Blue Jays for the 11th-worst record in MLB. As you may remember, only ten teams have their draft picks protected in the event they sign a free agent […]

Matt Harvey Asks New Yorkers About Matt Harvey

What do you think of Matt Harvey? Maybe you should ask someone who’s told Matt Harvey. You’ve probably seen this already, but in case you didn’t, perhaps the funniest thing a Mets player has done (on purpose) in over 30 years — since John Stearns tackled Chief Noc-A-Homa before a Braves game: This also pretty […]

Do Mets Want Ike Davis To Fail?

Just read this on Newsday: The Mets have assured Terry Collins that his job is not in danger and his future with the team will be discussed when his contract expires at the end of this season, two sources told Newsday. Not only is Collins safe, there have been no conversations about Wally Backman as […]

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this photo says it all. Try to cut it down by about 980 or so, and post an appropriate caption in the comments. Many thanks to “MrJeromy” for letting me re-publish this great shot. You can follow him on Twitter, read his blog, and/or check […]

The Difference Between Mets and Yankees Fans

What is the fundamental difference between rooting for the Yankees and supporting the Mets? Following is one real-life example coming “out of left field” (pardon the pun). Today, Yankees fans are arguing over who between Andruw Jones and Raul Ibanez should lose at-bats to Ichiro Suzuki, since all three play left field. Meanwhile, Mets fans […]

Crystal Ball Exercise

Pretend you have a crystal ball, and it can read three months into the future. It tells you that if the Mets trade Daniel Murphy, Zack Wheeler, Matt Harvey, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis to the Phillies for Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, and Shane Victorino, the Mets will win the 2012 World Series. If the deal isn’t […]

Who is Buying Johan Santana Commemorative Crap?

Maybe I’m a jerk for feeling this way, but when I found out the Mets were selling reprints of the game tickets to Johan Santana’s no-hitter, I burst out laughing. The concept is hilarious to me — why would anyone ever pay for something like that? I can almost, sort of, understand buying unused tickets […]

Mets Spelling Bee

Last night my wife and I enjoyed watching the Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals on ESPN. Thankfully it occurred on an off-night for the Mets, because, honestly, it would have been tough to decide upon which to watch (OK, not really; I’d have DVR’d the Mets game and watched it afterward). During the Bee, my […]

What Do the Mets Do On the Team Bus?

Not this, I bet … That’s the Harvard baseball team, whose team bus is a little smaller than the Mets’ ride, but perhaps more full of creativity. Phil Linz likely would find a friendly seat among them. These traveling young men turned this silly video into a fund raiser for brain tumor patients. Well done. […]

Mets Get Two For One in Pioneering, Cost-effective Move

For once, the Mets are light years ahead of everyone else with a brilliant, innovative idea — one that might change the way MLB rosters are constructed and The Game Itself.

Lenny Dykstra Arrested Again

Former Met Lenny Dykstra can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Dykstra’s latest run-in with the law occurred yesterday, when he was arrested on two counts of indecent exposure. From CNN: The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office says the charges stem from multiple reports involving Dykstra dating back to 2009. The charges accuse Dykstra of […]

Who Would You Weed Out?

Last night during the postgame show on SNY, Bob Ojeda had a passionate reaction to Mets manager Terry Collins’ press conference. Ojeda suggested that there are players on the current Mets team who are not as intensely concerned with winning as they should be. Here is the direct quote from Ojeda: “… I better start […]

Terry Collins Loses His Patience

During the postgame on SNY last night, Terry Collins lost his composure. Just a few of his quotes:
