Kevin Long Appears To Be Making A Significant Impact

It’s hard not to notice how ferocious the Mets offense has been this Spring, putting up runs at a pace we haven’t seen from this team in many years in spring training or the regular season. I think it’s too simplistic to just brush this off under the guise that spring training stats don’t mean anything. Production at this pace and this late in camp is nothing to be sneezed...

However, this makes sense in the respect right...

Still Plenty Of Questions As We Near Opening Day

I’ve watched Mets baseball games since 1962. Before every season has started there have been questions about the team that the upcoming season would have to answer. However, in thinking about the 2015 team I am stunned by how many questions I have about this team – the one that promises to make a “playoff run”.
