Mets should consider Wright trade

Bonus notes and thoughts from our MLB on Fox broadcast of the Diamondbacks-Mets game on Saturday. I'm guessing the Mets will sign third baseman David Wright to a contract extension, in part because ownership will fear losing credibility if it allows the face of the franchise to depart. Mets chairman Fred Wilpon needs to A) prove he still is capable of spending money and B...

Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch, one of the founding members of the Beastie Boys, passed away after a three-year battle with cancer. He was only 47 years old. Growing up...

Rookie Jordany Valdespin Belts A Pinch Hit Home Run In Mets 5-2 Comeback Win

Rookie Jordany Valdespin delivers a pinch hit three-run homer to put the Mets up 5-3. Recap Jon Niese had himself another good start despite only going five innings and being plagued with four walks. He gave up two runs in the first two innings, but was able to throw zeroes until he was taken out for a pinch hitter. Niese needs to stay in the game. He goes five innings, allowing...
