Mejia Gesture Not Classy

Count me among those not enamored with the post-game celebration of New York Mets closer Jenrry Mejia, who went over the top with his reel-him-in gesture after striking out Ian Desmond to end last night’s game. Watching Mejia was watching any NBA player thump his chest and mug for the camera’s after dunking on a defender. It was watching almost any receiver or cornerback in the...

New York Mets: remembering the September 2001 home run

This isn’t going to be a typical article. I’m not going to talk about what’s currently going on with the New York Mets, even if they have won 6 of 8 and four of the last five. Because despite those aforementioned numbers, it isn’t fun for any of us to discuss the scraping and clawing that this team needs to do just to reach .500 or hold off the last place Phillies. Instead...

Don’t Buy Into Thinking Wright Injury Could Pave Way For Murphy Trade

My first question stemming from the Mets’ shutting down David Wright for the remainder of the season is: What took them so long, especially considering his propensity for playing through pain and injury? Seriously, Wright has had a sore left shoulder for weeks. He’s played through worse. Last night, Sandy Alderson said Wright “did what captains do,’’ and he “preserved...

What do the Mets have in Dillon Gee?

When speaking about the future of the Mets pitching rotation, a lot of names get thrown around. Dillon Gee‘s name usually gets mentioned as a possible fourth or fifth starter, or perhaps even trade bait to help get a left fielder or shortstop. Gee has had an up-and-down year in 2014, partially to blame by a strained lat muscle that saw him miss the second half of May all the way...
