I came into this season with high hopes for guys such Cory Vaughn, Cesar Puello, Wilmer Flores and Aderlin Rodriguez. However, not a single one of the players I just listed came close to either 2011 expectations, especially for where they were ranked in the system. I understand that they are young, and still have time to develop, but was it to much to ask for one of them to perform at...
After having about a week and a half to digest the 2011 Mets season, I have written my report card for the team. I’m not counting players like Ike Davis, Carlos Beltran, Francisco Rodriguez, and Johan Santana for obvious reasons, nor am I counting guys like Josh Satin, Mike Baxter, Josh Stinson, etc.

That pitcher would be Francisco Rodriguez who had a very rocky time there but actually left the team on good terms. Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York talks about the possibilities and how the Met’s actually aren’t opposed...
Wally Backman is considering whether to become Davey Johnson third-base coach with the Nationals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports, according to a team source.
“Johnson may look to groom Backman for the managerial job, much in the same manner Bobby Cox took Fredi Gonzalez under his wing with the Braves before retiring,” the source told Puma.
Well, this seemed inevitable...
Bud Selig still believes in his friend Fred Wilpon, and said he has no concerns about the Mets' ability to attract minority investors.
It doesn't have the retro charm of Camden Yards, the spectacular views of PNC Park or the iconic bay blasts of AT&T Park's McCovey Cove.But Progressive Field in Cleveland is a wonderful place to see a ballgame. Cleveland residents must be pretty proud of it, too, based on the number of postcards I've found when visiting the city.I've seen a number of games at...
