1. Sometimes It's Painful to Be Right

    I can't tell you how many comments I received from angry Mets fans over the past two years when I lobbied for the Mets to go get Roy Halladay. I wanted to give up prospects. Give up every day players...

  2. Fixing the Mets for 2011 in Three Moves

    Welcome to the off season. It's time for every Mets Lifer to take on the honorary role of being an armchair GM. We'll hear a new rumor every week about who the new GM or manager will be...

  3. An Open Letter to Jeff Wilpon

    Dear Mr. Wilpon, I hope you've enjoyed your summer because most Mets fans have hated theirs. Much like the economy, the Mets are on the verge of a double dip recession...

  4. The Mets Kids Can Be Clutch

    I watched all of 15 minutes of last night's game, but the portion I did see made me smile. As I turned on the game around 9:30 last night, I caught the bottom of the 9th inning where the Mets were down by a run against the Brewers...

  5. Reader Reaction to Trading Beltran Would Be Stupid

    I've had a few fellow Mets Lifers react to yesterday's post on Trading Beltran Would Be Stupid. Some disagree, but the majority of people are in agreement that Beltran is primed for a monster year...

  6. Trading Beltran Would Be Stupid

    The Mets are always good for a stupid deal every other year. Or maybe every year for that matter. But the dumbest move of this coming off season would be to trade Carlos Beltran...

  7. Mets Say Farewell to Lex Luthor

    You may call him Lex Luthor. You can call him the bane of the Mets existense. Call him nemesis, castigator, or scourge. Or you can just call him Bobby Cox. The most consistent manager in baseball left the Mets home field in a familiar way...

  8. Can You Live With This Mets Lineup in 2011?

    The off season is almost here and it's one of my favorite times of year as I take on a second job of becoming a virtual Mets general manager. It's an unpaid role, but I consider it to be an unwanted charitable cause that I feel compelled to undertake...

  9. Are You Watching Mets Baseball?

    Last night I found myself watching more of the Mets game on my MLB phone app than on SNY. With the minor leaguers now in the majors and a Mets lineup that consists of Luca Duda, Luis ...

  11. Mets Gazette: A Five Step Plan 2011

    An interesting post from Mets Gazette on what they think the Mets need to do for the 2011 campaign. I'm torn with a number of their points though. I agree the Mets should add a #2 starter and if that means trading Pelfrey to do so, I'm ok with that...

    Over the last few seasons, there's been a lot of talk about the Mets needs for good clubhouse guys. That an improvement in personality would have a positive impact in the locker room...

  14. Mets are on the Road to Mordor

    What's the best way to punch the final nail in the coffin of the 2010 Mets? How about a 10 game road trip that starts with a 4 game stint at Turner Field? Unlike Frodo's journey, ...

  15. The 2010 Season in One Word: Tease

    The Mets are the biggest tease in baseball. From April's good start, to June's epic streak, to July's West Coast implosion, to August's hint of hope, the Mets have done everything they ...

    In a 24 hour span the Mets went from winning back-to-back games for the first time in months to utter disappointment to pure chaos and criminal charges to back to baseball. The reason for this turnaround is one man: Johan Santana...
