Mets Unveil Their 2013 BP Cap Featuring Mr. Met!

Paul Lukas of ESPN, shares a glimpse of the 2013 Mets Batting Practice caps which features Mr. Met. He writes: Mr. Met has appeared only one time on a Mets uni component (he was a sleeve patch for a fauxback that was worn three times in 2009), so it’s cool to see him on the BP cap. One quibble, though: The cap has an orange brim, but the Mr. Met shown on the cap has a blue brim...

R.A. Dickey got a Star Wars onesie for Christmas (Picture)

R.A. Dickey is the definition of a late bloomer. He made his first All-Star appearance and won his first Cy Young Award last season as a member of the New York Mets at age 37. That is incredibly old for a player to be enjoying his best season as a pro. Is it possible that the right-hander has discovered the Fountain of Youth? Judging by the Star Wars onesie Dickey apparently got...

Dickey so special is that not only does his knuckleball possess crazy movement it also comes at you at 73-75mph, sometimes reaching near 80mph. Check out the movement below and take notice not only of the ball’s [...]

Ike Davis, 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

Was definitely a struggle to own Ike Davis in 2012. Was uncomfortable like the air in the room when you find out on Christmas Eve that your crazy aunt is going to jail for seven years. Take it from me, for Christmas, don't buy her a nail file or black and white striped pajamas. Or when she says she was railroaded, don't comment that's ironic because now you're...

Let Go

Over the last three years, R.A. Dickey has basically been my favorite* baseball player. A couple of weeks ago, he was traded from my favorite baseball team, the New York Mets, to the Toronto Blue Jays. I could break down the trade for you from a sabermetric perspective, point out the wins and losses each team might expect to gain or lose. I could talk about the prospects involved...
