Goodbye Jason Pridie? – A good guy, but a decent fifth outfielder

Pridie hit .231 (OBP of .309) with four homeruns, 20 RBI, 7 stolen bases, and 48 runs in 101 games and 208 at-bats. I feel like ever year the Mets have a fifth outfielder that either starts with the team in April or comes up to the team in May. That outfielder is always your slightly below average fifth outfielder, who plays good defense, but can’t hit. He also always stays with...

Fickle Fan Base Will Hurt Marlins Pursuit Of Jose Reyes

With Wednesday's news that Jose Reyes took in the sights at the Marlin's new complex in Miami, many Mets fans entered panic mode as the idea of losing the all-star shortstop to free agency finally came full circle.  Fans should remember that Reyes, who will undoubtedly take similar tours at other cities across the country, has stated all along that he intends to see what...

Mets will ditch the black drop-shadow in 2012

In his recent chat for ESPN New York, Adam Rubin backed up his story from last summer indicating the Mets will eliminate the drop shadow from their uniforms next season.

They will make an offer they feel comfortable with, and if it’s rejected, they will move on – and so if the Marlins’ offer is as aggressive as expected, there would appear to be almost no chance Reyes...

Email Q&A, pres. by Citi: Why not sign pitching?

Peter G sent in an e-mail asking: “For the same money (as it would cost the Mets to sign Jose Reyes) they could potentially sign Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell.  Also there is a good chance they could sign them to three-year deals. As much as everyone loves Reyes, the Mets aren’t going anywhere until they get some better pitching.
