Upping our expectations after incredible start to the Mets season

Many years ago there was a scandal at some parimutuel race tracks. It seems the scammers had worked out a method of getting their bets in just a couple of seconds after the gates flew open and the horses started down the track. Now that would not seem on the face of it to be a huge advantage but apparently it was enough. If you had your eye on a 50-1 longshot and knew that he came...

Mets’ Noah Syndergaard Rips Apart Twitter Trolls

Remember when David Wright decided to flex his veteran presence to pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard over eating a sandwich during a spring training game? Well, apparently he should’ve extended his wisdom to include how to handle oneself on Twitter. Syndergaard was involved in a Twitter “altercation” Friday, unloading on trolls who didn’t believe him missing a start due...

New York Mets off to best start since 1986

Dave Cameron on the Mets’ quick start

In reality, the Mets are probably still the 7th or 8th best team in the National League, but they’ve already collected 10 irrevocable wins, and the 4th, 5th, and 6th best teams in the NL aren’t exactly monsters. The NL Wild Cards will be won by two flawed teams that likely over-perform their actual abilities by a half dozen games or so. The Mets are already further down that...

It’s time for the Mets to show their worth

The New York Mets are off to one of the hottest starts in franchise history, beginning the season 10-3, including a three game sweep of archrival Philadelphia Phillies and a four game sweep of the divisional rival Miami Marlins. The last two times the Mets started 10-3 were 1986 and 2006, and all Mets fans know how those seasons finished (damn you, Yadier Molina…). However, ever...

MLB Players of Week 2: Nelson Cruz, Jacob deGrom

There was some offensive firepower this past week. Many players could be deserving of the Player of the Week.

Reflecting on the Mets’ Homestead So Far

The Mets just defeated the Marlins 7-6 on Sunday, sweeping the four game series from the Marlins. This came immediately after a three game sweep of the Phillies, another division rival.

With David Wright out, who’s on third?
