Of The New Guys, Who Stays?

Unquestionably, the Mets are a better team today than a week ago. They added depth with Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe; strengthened their bullpen with Tyler Clippard; and gave their offense a tremendous boost with Yoenis Cespedes. Do they have enough now – remember, they can always add more in August with waiver deals – to overtake Washington? Yes, they are good enough to not...

Gut Reaction: Mets 2, Nationals 1 (7/31)

What a game this turned out to be. Matt Harvey looked like a man on a mission tonight, as he went 7.2 innings, struck out 9 and allowed one run. He allowed his first hit in the sixth inning, and looked in complete control through his start. With two outs in the eighth inning, the umpires ruled that Harvey hit Clint Robinson on the foot, although the replay was did not show his foot...

Laughter After The Rain

I went to Thursday’s debacle. Saw them completely blow a 7-1 lead. And if I didn’t have to be somewhere, I would have stayed until the bitter end. But I saw what I needed to see. And I sat and watched Justin Upton’s home run in the rain. Got wet. I almost foretold this when I told my buddy at the end of the first rain delay: “You know if the Padres somehow tie this thing...

New York Mets make a splash; acquire Yoenis Cespedes from Detroit Tigers

It’s been a wild few days for the New York Mets. On Wednesday, it appeared that the club traded for Milwaukee Brewers‘ outfielder Carlos Gomez in return for Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler, according to many sources. After the trade literally brought tears to the eyes of Flores, the world later found out (via Mets’ GM Sandy Alderson) that the Gomez trade was a no-go. Money made...

Embrace crying in baseball

No more baseball, coach? A simple, poignant question amid the flurry of medals, adulation, and reflection upon the conclusion of a Teeball Little League season. A four-year-old player on my team had realized that the celebration came at a harrowing cost; no more baseball. His eyes enlarged, reddened, and finally allowed streams of teardrops to traverse his cheeks as his head drooped...

Latest front office fiasco leaves Met fans shocked, but unsurprised

Things had been looking so good of late. Sandy Alderson had finally responded to what had become patently obvious to the more observant quadrants of Mets fandom. Even the densest of us could see that an offensive upgrade was needed, but to the more nuanced eye, even an incremental improvement would make a pretty substantial difference – i.e., even adding a league-average hitter...

Alderson Has Considerable Apologizing To Do

Mets GM Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins were quick to blame social media for Wednesday’s trade that fell through which would have sent Milwaukee’s Carlos Gomez to the Mets in exchange for Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler. Alderson said he apologized to the visibly upset Flores for how things transpired, which makes me wonder if he has any intent to apologize to his manager...

Wilmer Flores Has Us Asking, Is There Crying In Baseball?

That’s the face of a man who just learned the only team he’s ever played for in the Major Leagues traded him mid-game.  Luckily for Wilmer Flores (I think), the deal fell apart and he is still a member of the New York Mets.  When tears poured down his face, you couldn’t help but think about Tom Hanks’ iconic scene from A League of Their Own where Jimmy Dugan proclaims...

Padres and Mets partake in bizarre two days of baseball

Months from now, or even years from now, players and coaches who were on the San Diego Padres and New York Mets rosters this week will look back at Wednesday and Thursday's games and laugh. Perhaps the Padres faithful will laugh a little harder for winning both games, but still, what went down in the 24 hours that the teams played their two games was entertaining to say the least...
