I’m not staying up beyond 2 a.m. for this game, again. The getting up at 6 a.m. for the paying job part of life makes these Left Coast swings impossible to fully cover. That said, please feel free to post your comments on this ballgame. LGM.
So, are the Mets expecting to contend for a playoff spot this year? I can’t fathom why they’d hold on to pieces like Tim Byrdak, Scott Hairston and Chris Young if they thought otherwise. We heard from one source that Sandy Alderson “monitored” the list of available players, while another source claimed he “had his [...]
Mets 8 Giants 7 Whew … that was a close one. Don’t look now, but the Mets are riding a red-hot, two-game winning streak with the trade deadline only hours away — what piece or pieces will they add to put them over the top?
From the MetsToday mailbag: Joe, It seems the desire to land a big time pitcher is really ramping up as the deadline approaches. Any thoughts on the Mets seeing if they can sell really high on Dickey? Thanks, Andy The immediate answer from any Mets fan is

Nationals 5 Mets 2 What was bad, has gone to worse.
Well, here we go again, another year, another collapse. I had no expectations going into this season, but then the team’s invigorated play during May and June, coupled with the wave of sentiment about the geniuses in the Front Office, an improved farm system, the no-hitter, the R.A. Dickey story, the collapse of the Phillies, [...]
With one week remaining until the non-waiver trade deadline, let’s take a look at some of the notable transactions that have been made thus far. Baltimore Orioles The O’s picked up DH Jim Thome from the Phillies in exchange for C Gabriel Lino and RHP Kyle Simon. They also received SS Omar Quintanilla from the Mets for cash. These are two good [...]
As previously mentioned, I’m at work and won’t be able to do a recap for this afternoon’s game until long after it’s over. That said, here are the lineups – please feel free to post your comments before / during / after the game. Good news for the Nationals: ‘spin can’t come off the bench [...]
