New York Mets: The Carlos Beltran controversy

They were a team of destiny. They had all the pieces. The 2006 New York Mets had exciting young speedsters, homerun hitting veterans, and an above average rotation. They had the perfect mix of power and finesse. They steamrolled their division, and finished the regular season with 97 wins. They clinched the NL East on September 18th, becoming the earliest team to claim a postseason...

Ojeda Tabs Lagares As His Breakthrough Player for 2014

Nick asks… Is Juan Lagares an everyday player? He seems more like a Endy Chavez defensive substitute type to me, but I keep hearing that he has a hold on the everyday center field job. Do you think his bat will develop or will we see the same offensive production we saw last season? Any idea what kind of numbers we should look forward to? Teddy replies… I don’t think Lagares...

Why I can’t watch playoff baseball

Yes, it’s totally immature. It’s selfish and just wrong. But I can’t watch playoff baseball. Let me start off by saying baseball is the greatest game on this planet. I live and breathe the game. I love calling myself a Mets fan, watching Mets games, writing about the Mets and being a part of this fan-base. Though it seems that with every passing season and every missed playoff...

Throwing back to get back: Mariners born in the 70′s

Unable to break into the playoffs in that time frame despite having more than a few talented players on their roster, many see Seattle as a lower-tier organization...

Subway Series Game 1 - Gardner goes Endy, but Mets win

When Brett Gardner pulled an Endy Chavez and robbed Daniel Murphy of a two-run homer, the Mets appeared headed for another ignominious defeat at the hands of the Yankees. But the Mets overcame Gardner's play of the year, thanks to David Wright's game-tying homer and Murphy's game winning hit. Jon Niese lowered his ERA to 4.40, which is pretty good considering it was 5...

Time for an Endy Reunion?

News broke yesterday that Endy Chavez was released by the Kansas City Royals, and it made me wonder if the Mets might consider adding him to the mix. It kind of goes against everything this team represents. We are in a youth movement right now.
