  5. Mets Fans Have a Right to be Negative

  6. Give Me Some Opening Day

    I tried to watch a Mets spring training game on Saturday afternoon, but I just couldn't do it. I don't care about these backups. I want to see Reyes, Wright and Bay out there every day...

  7. Ike Davis is my Starting First Baseman

    Ike Davis is currently on his way to minor league camp. You see when you bat nearly .500, come through in clutch situations and drive in more runs than the other two first baseman combined during spring training, you're bound to be sent to the minors...

  9. Why the Mets Pitching is so Important

    I love the long ball. I appreciate a good hit and run. And I jump off my couch like any fan when I see a shot hit to the gap in right center with runners on base. But winning baseball is all about pitching...

  10. Don't Even Watch Oliver Perez Until April

    Johan Santana got hit pretty hard yesterday in a spring training game. He gave up four runs and had trouble with his control. Of course, he's Santana so we don't really think anything of it...

  11. The Mets Can Compete for the NL East If...

    Ron Darling was on WFAN this morning and predicted that the Mets will win "at best" 86 games this season. Not exactly the vote of confidence one would hope for, but at least Darling is a realist...

  12. Jose Reyes Batting Third is a Gamble

    For the last three or four years, at least twice a week we've heard the SNY broadcast team rattle off a stat of how Jose Reyes' success is an indicator of Mets wins. When Reyes gets on base and scores, the Mets usually win...

  13. And So It Begins

    Today marks the first official day of spring training. While snow still covers my driveway and winter hats are still necessary for any visit into the city, there's a warm breeze in my mind that has me longing for those sunny days on the diamond...

  16. Mets Should Avoid John Smoltz Like the Plague

    If we don't pay attention to history, we're bound to repeat it. That's what some smart person said a while ago and has been repeated to us hundreds of times in our lives. But now is the first time that I finally realize what it means...

  17. Hernandez's # - To Retire, or Not to Retire?

    It seems like every month there is a debate about whether or not the Mets should retire Keith Hernandez's number. Turn on Francessa on a slow sports day, and you might hear a heated discussion about Mex's merits...

  19. Mets to Play Rotation Roulette

  21. Mets Get Jason Bay, Now What?

    So it appears the Mets will sign Jason Bay to a four year deal. Only took Bay the entire winter to decide that money does mean more to him than happiness and sign with the Mets. Omar Minaya is feeling pretty good right now...

  22. Can the Mets Ever Have Enough Pitching?

    The answer is no. It's impossible to have too much pitching. Ok, if you have 20 pitchers on your roster, that might be overkill, but for the most part pitching is like a good meal you never can get enough...
