TEAMS: New York Mets

About the 2012 uniforms, via Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:

“…The Mets are going to borrow significantly, I hear, from the early 1960s uniforms. … I hear the black drop shadow is going away, so it will just be the orange and blue lettering … script Mets for the home lettering, block letters NEW YORK for road. Even the bright white home uniforms (without the pinstripes) should drop the black. … There’s going to be a patch on a sleeve I hear, too, with the city skyline and “50th anniversary” on it. … I even hear banner day may be making a comeback.”

Rubin wrote that as an answer in his online chat today on ESPN New York, which you can checkout here.

To be completely honest, I don’t have a strong opinion on this matter.

I do have a pretty big opinion on the black uniforms, which I think should be completely removed. Also, I think the blue uniforms should say “Mets” and not “Los Mets,” and they should be their “alternate” uniform, being used at Citi Field, as well as on the road, essentially replacing the black ones.

They will probably be used in that fashion in 2013. They cannot be used as the alternate jersey for 2012 because teams submit uniforms in May. However, the Mets will wear the jersey a couple times throughout the 2012 season.

NYDN: If Reyes goes, Mets should admit they’re rebuilding

“At 28, however, [Jose Reyes] is young enough to be a centerpiece when the young pitching finally makes its presence felt. And that’s the dilemma for the people running the Mets. … Alderson and his lieutenants do have a plan for the future. But if Reyes leaves, they should just admit that 2012 isn’t part of it. Otherwise their fans have a right to ask if this is New York...

Comparing Coleman to Reyes...

Vince Coleman is remembered most for being a part of the worst team money could buy, who thought it was funny to scare fans with cherry bombs instead of opponents with his on-base prowess. While most of us Mets fans cringe when we here Coleman's name along with Saberhagen and Bonilla's there maybe a useful comparison to be draw between Coleman and Reyes. I'll admit...

Who Is The Mets Closer For 2012?

There are a lot of closers available this offseason. The one problem is that most of them are in their mid-thirties. Regardless of age though, it’s no secret that we don’t have a major league closer on our roster and we don’t even have a potential option in the minors. Here’s a look at some options outside the organization. My pick for closer is former Twins finisher Joe...
