R.A. Dickey on “Letting the Butterfly Loose”

If being a subject of more study, research and incredulity than perhaps any other pitcher in baseball is a burden to R.A. Dickey, the down-to-earth New York Met doesn’t show it. Perhaps it’s because he’s studied, researched and been baffled by the knuckleball more than anyone in the game these days. Maybe he welcomes the help.

The New York Mets – For Real or Newest Ride at Six Flags?

If the Yankees are like the post office, “Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall” impede their inevitable playoff run, the Mets are like the Cyclone at Coney Island. Sweep…Get Swept…Sweep…Get Swept. I hope Mets fans aren’t susceptible to motion sickness. I sure am. Currently, the Mets are approaching the lifthill. R.A. Dickey (apparently the ace of my FSBB...

Mets Business: Why in the world is no one showing up to games?

The Mets are fun to watch. They’ve had some bad games, but they’ve had some great ones. They are a young team. They have heart. Their manager is fiery and gets the best out of his players. Their veterans are All-Stars and leaders. Dickey shocks the world. Santana changes HI57ORY. Wright breaks Mets records. The team is 3.5 games out of first place and half a game out of the wild...

Best 1-2-3 Punch in the Majors? Yes, No, Maybe…?

From ESPN reporters to the die-hard Mets fans, the biggest question all year has been: Do the Mets have the best one-two punch in the big leagues, with Johan Santana and R.A. Dickey?

Mets are ‘in it’ at the half way point…..so they got that going for them…which is nice

How in the hell are the New York Mets still in the NL East Race 1 game short of the halfway point in the season?  Honestly, did any of us think the Mets would be 6 games over .500 much less 3.5 games out of first place at this point?  Are there Angels in the outfield?  Is Terry Collins injecting each player with HGH prior to first pitch each night?  Is it ‘little Jerry’,...

The New York Mets Have A Rotation You Can Believe In

The New York Mets continue to have success on the field and as part of our free MLB picks (like Thursday night). Can they continue those winning ways this weekend in Los Angeles, and beyond?

On All-Star arguments

Sometimes, over at ESPN, I contribute to a thing called "Triple Play." Last night, I wrote three answers to questions about the All-Star Game, and today, along with the responses from Christina Kahrl and Logan Burdine, they published them.
