After making his last start of the 2012 season New York Mets starter R.A. Dickey made it know that he had been pitching with an abdominal tear since the middle of April. The 37-year-old gutted things out down the stretch and managed to win 20 games for a struggling Mets team, putting himself atop the list of NL Cy Young contenders in the process.

Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey has had abdominal surgery and is expected to be ready for spring training.
The team says Dr. William Meyers performed the operation Thursday morning in Philadelphia to repair a core muscle injury.
A leading contender for the NL Cy Young Award, Dickey was 20-6 with a 2.73 ERA this season. The 37-year-old knuckleballer led the National League in strikeouts...
The Mets need outfield help. You, I and the family pet all know this much. It’s so obviously evident, that the Mets should post a Craigslist ad asking for outfield help!
One current Mets’ outfielder who stands a decent chance of cracking the starting rotation is Kirk Nieuwenhuis.
Scott Hairston and Andres Torres are likely gone (especially Torres), as they are soon to be free...
Our own Craig Lerner came up with several bold predictions of his own last week, so I thought I would throw my own into the mix.
We saw the triumphant debut of the Mets 2010 1st-round draft pick Matt Harvey, providing one of very few bright spots in an otherwise dreary second half of the 2012 season. He came up and looked like the pitcher we have been told about, and in many cases...

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe had a few notes of interest on the Mets in his column this morning.
Ike Davis, 1B, Mets: The big lefthanded power hitter, who is first-year arbitration-eligible, has often been linked to the Red Sox, though you’d have to ask why the Mets would deal him to Boston. Davis hit 32 homers with 90 RBIs but batted only .227. There definitely could be...
Now that the 2012 season has concluded for the New York Mets, we have taken a look at overall breakdowns for the offense, starting rotation, and bullpen this past season. We will now take a look at every player on the roster from A (Manny Acosta) to Y (Chris Young) as our Mets 101 Player Review series returns. In each review we will take a look at one player’s 2012 performance...
As you probably already know, the Mets affiliation with the AAA International League franchise in Buffalo came to a screeching halt at the conclusion of the 2012 season, and the Mets will be forced to play their AAA games in the Pacific Coast League for the Las Vegas 51′s beginning in 2013. The Mets were only in Buffalo for three years this time from 2009 – 2012, and during...
This is not breaking news – the Mets are in need of a lead off hitter and outfielders as we move towards the 2013 season. Some people may be ready to close the door on Grady Sizemore’s career, but there is still value there. We are still talking about a player that was on his way to super stardom before some injuries side tracked his career. After missing the entire 2012 season...
Kodak Moments: Instead of worrying about winning baseball games, this is the type of nonsense the Mets concern themselves with?
I was driving into work this morning and was listening to Richard Neer on WFAN. He was talking about the Yankees and Braves success over the past 20 years. He was saying how the Braves and Yankees have made the playoffs virtually every year, and it’s not...
New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey had surgery Thursday in Philadelphia to repair a lower abdominal muscle tear. Dickey tweeted Wednesday that the procedure was minor and that he expected no issues. The 38-year-old knuckleballer said he pitched with a dull pain for the final five months of the season. He's expected to recover well in advance of the start of spring training...
Check out the latest poll results from MetsBlog on where his readership vote on if the Mets are headed in the Right Direction or Wrong Direction:
If there was an option that said “Not Sure” that’s what I would have chosen. Maybe that’s why he only got 2,600 people to vote instead of his usual 5K+. I also suspect that those who were unsure and voted, gave the team the benefit...

Imagine the following scenario:
‘Disgusted with his dismal performance in the playoffs and diminishing talents; the Yankees look to unload the contract of Alex Rodriguez so they can pursue a new direction. Unable to afford to offer him the contract he feels he deserves, the Mets are forced to pursue a trade for David Wright. The New York Teams swap players at their hot corners...
Contract extensions will be all the buzz this offseason for the Mets.
The team’s only superstars, David Wright and R.A. Dickey, both are coming up on option years, so all the talk has been centered on them agreeing to contract extensions before making any other moves.
But there’s another potential extension that may be discussed this offseason: an extension for manager Terry...
