Blog Roundup: Dickey Goes for 17th W

Having won their past two series, (break up the Mets!) New York heads down to Amazing Technicolor Marlins Park for a series with the Marlins.  Miami followed up their offseason spending spree with a comical, and somewhat predictable, fire sale at the trade deadline.  The Marlins are one organization that even Mets fans can point […]

Wild Card Fantasy

The 2011 World Champion Cardinals were ten games out of the Wild Card this time last year. The Mets and Phillies are both currently ten games behind in the Wild Card standings. (Ironically, the Cardinals are one of the two teams at the top.) Just for kicks, I’d like to add that on August 30, […]

Is Terry Collins To Blame?

As the Mets were cruising into the All-Star break with an improbable winning percentage, I distinctly remember whispers from beat writers, bloggers, and the SNY announcers that Terry Collins was in line for Manager of the Year. After all, the pundits predicted putrid performance from Flushing, with most picking the Mets to finish dead last. […]

Mike Francesa Goes Ballistic on Mets

In case you missed it, Mike Francesa gave his opinion on the Mets after they were swept by the Rockies. Francesa doesn’t need me to promote him, so it pains me to do so, but this is absolutely priceless. And couldn’t be more true. He pretty much lets out every thought and emotion that many […]

Projecting the Mets’ 2013 Opening Day 25-Man Roster

It has come to that point of the New York Mets season again when the team is completely unbearable to watch, loses most games it plays, shows little to no effort nor desire to win, and acts like the Same Old Mets over and over again. But why should we Mets fans subject ourselves to […]

Astros 3 Mets 1 After 18 years managing in the minor leagues, Suffern High School grad and Seton Hall University alum Tony DeFrancesco finally won his first game as a MLB manager.

Mike Piazza Bobblehead

Here’s a symbol from some better times (1998-2000, at least).  It’s the bobblehead version of Mike Piazza that the Mets will be giving away this Saturday, when they play the Astros at 1:10 PM.
