According to sources, the Mets have agreed to terms with former Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon on a 2 year/$20 million deal, pending a physical.
With ace Matt Harvey lost for 2014 to Tommy John Surgery, I feel that Colon fits the perfect mold of the starting pitcher Sandy Alderson set out to acquire.
The Mets needed a solid back end innings eating veteran to keep the spot warm...
News broke about Bartolo Colon’s pending 2-year $20 million deal with the Mets, and I just couldn’t help myself.
This is going to break a lot of great headlines, but I thought I’d take the photo approach.
Here are the top five photos of Colon I was able to find:

#MetsTwitter is a tough place to hang out these days. If you don’t watch your back while walking these mean streets, you might become the next victim of the “Knockout Game”. Don’t think for one minute that your 140 characters might not be as scrutinized as a State of the Union address.
The lack of talent, money, and actions by the New York Mets front office, have turned this...

New York Mets third baseman David Wright is confident his team can bounce back from three “ugly” years and enjoy success in 2014.
Wright signed an eight-year contract extension last December after Mets general manager Sandy Alderson convinced him the team would be a force in the National League from 2014.
Alderson assured Wright the Mets would make strides in the 2013 off-season...
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
These days, with the mood around the Mets because so dull and somber, which seemingly started the day we found out that Matt Harvey was going to need Tommy John Surgery, us fans have become a bit delirious, and we’re growing quite tired of the antics of Mets’ management.
Today, the Mets announced their first non minor-league deal of the off season...
The Mets today signed Chris Young, formally of the A’s and more famously the Diamondbacks, to a 1 year deal worth a reported 7.25 Million. He hit .200 with 12 HRs and 40 RBI last year for Oakland.
Lets see how #MetsTwitter likes our newest outfielder…

Thank you Mets management!
The Mets have officially made their first splash of the off-season, signing the legend Bobby Bonilla to a 25-year, $250 million contract, the team announced Thursday.
In order to help with the financial hit, the Mets will pay Bonilla until Snooki’s kid has a grandchild.
“I couldn’t be happier than to be signed by the Mets and continue to be paid without...
Earlier today on Metsblog, the rumor of a potential Ike Davis for Ryan Braun trade was floated out there and clearly had Mets fans thinking that miracles can happen and that Brewers GM Doug Melvin might be losing his mind.
But according to inside sources within the Mets organization, the potential of Ryan Braun coming to the Mets is a lot more serious than we think.
The Mets, who...
The New York Mets once again finished in an underwhelming position in the standings, sitting at a modest third place in the National League East. Their winning percentage of .457 was identical to that of their previous season, and similar still to 2011 (.475) and 2010 (.488).
With the World Series wrapped up and MLB Awards distributed around the league, New York Mets faithful are...
The last couple of off-seasons, many of us have entertained the possibility that the Mets would be daring and take a shot, only to be disappointed on a year-to-year basis.
The biggest signings of recent memory? Well, there’s Jason Bay, Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez and more, but that certainly can’t be blamed on Sandy Alderson. Omar Minaya set us back, but he’s not the only person...
As the off-season is starting to get underway and rumors are swirling that Ike Davis or Lucas Duda could be traded by the Mets, one guy who played first base last year, Josh Satin seems to flying under the radar.
In a post to Mets.com, Chris Iseman talks to Josh Satin about how is getting ready for the 2014 season after finally cracking the major league roster last year for an extended...
The Mets Twitter “Lunatic Fringe” is a complicated group. There is no stereotypical member of the Lunatic Fringe, so if you were hanging out on the Shea Bridge or even in your local grocery store, you probably wouldn’t be able to spot them. However, on the Twitter machine, they stand out like a sore thumb.
For the sake of not having to type out “Lunatic Fringe” 100 times...
With the World Series coming to a conclusion on Wednesday night, the offseason is pretty much underway as teams look to find a way to reach what the Red Sox did this past season.
The Mets have not been very active on the free agency side of the offseason since Sandy Alderson took over as General Manager.
It has actually been since the 2009 off season, when the Mets gave Jason Bay...
The New York Mets and New York Jets are linked together in history more than some of you might care to acknowledge.
Sure the final three letters of each teams name is -ets and more often than not they screw with their fans emotions with crushing losses or long stretches of ineptitude.
The other ways they are connected is that they shared Shea Stadium, both won championships in the...
Using the silhouette from my good friend Chirstopher Gamez (@Metsochist4life) I came up with this T-Shirt prototype.
I think The 7 Line just got some serious competition…. (Not really. But, this shirt idea I think, is still awesome)
The post The Keith Hernandez T-Shirt appeared first on The Daily Stache.
Keith Hernandez had some amazing moments this season in the booth. We here at the Stache wanted to remember some of those and the first in our series happened in San Francisco.
Keith and his overreactions to certain random things on the field can be classic. This moment from the Mets July series sweep of the Giants is one of his best. Enjoy!

The 2013 New York Mets baseball season is over. The games have come and gone and now we embark upon the most important off-season the franchise has had since 2005, if not ever.
The other thing that is over is my patience for the front office and ownership.
I have told anyone that would listen that as soon as the final out was made on Sunday, the buzzer would sound, signifying the...

As we embark on the final two games of the season, the Mets will enter into an offseason of uncertainty with money to spend.
Remember, just because they have X amount coming off the books doesn’t mean they’re going to spend it all. Let’s look at who’s coming off the books.
Johan Santana: $25.5 million in ’13. He’ll be bought out for $5.5 million.
Frank Francisco: $6...
Sometimes you can’t appreciate something till it is gone. Mariano Rivera is the greatest closer of all time. Plain and Simple. Nobody could do that job better than him.
With tonight being the final game Mo will pitch ever in the great state of New York, we thought it would be nice of us here at the Stache to bid adieu to him one last time.
So with that in mind, here are our favorite...
Well, it’s safe to say that the 2013 season didn’t turn out the way the fans in Queens were hoping. Aside from Matt Harvey’s early season brilliance and the exciting opportunity to host the MLB All Star Game at the beautiful Citi Field, the Mets didn’t have a whole lot of bright spots this season.
And of course, just a quick glance at mlb.com/standings will show you that...
