Word Sunday that the Marlins will “listen” to offers for Giancarlo Stanton. If that is the case, the Mets should trade anyone in their system for him. Jim Bowden of ESPN and SiriusXM tweeted: Dan Jennings Marlins AGM told us they will listen to all offers on Giancarlo Stanton but they’re not shopping him and don’t […]
Here is another Mets quiz, this one dealing with players involved in Mets trades. Enjoy.
Scott Hairston Hits for Cycle — 4/27/12 Hairston was a surprising bright spot in 2012, hitting a career high 20 home runs. His best day actually came during one of the team’s worst losses of the year — he hit for the cycle in a wild game in Colorado that the Mets lost 18-9. Johan Santana […]
MLB Trade Rumors was kind enough to remind us that today marks the 11th anniversary of the ill-fated Mo Vaughn-Kevin Appier deal between the Mets and the Angels. The trade is often mentioned as one of the poor moves by Steve Phillips that led to the undoing of the team. Certainly it did not work […]
I’ve been playing around with this quiz website, so I thought I’d create a Mets quiz for you guys. Since it’s the first one, some of the questions are pretty easy. Let me know what you think and if you’d like more of them.

Jack Klugman, who prominently wore a Mets hat while portraying Oscar Madison in “The Odd Couple,” died Monday. He was 90 years old. “The Odd Couple” is still my all-time favorite television show; when I was a kid they played it constantly on WPIX, at one point airing it four times a day. I was […]
If you were hoping to find one, two or three major league outfielders on the Mets roster under the Christmas tree, or a bullpen which could actually close out games, then you will be one sad boy on Christmas morning. You see, the Mets still have the same team they had in 2012. Oh wait, […]
Our old pal John Maine has signed a minor league deal with the Marlins and will be invited to Spring Training. Maine hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2010, when he went 1-3 with a 6.13 ERA for the Mets before going down with an injury. He pitched in the minors for the Rockies and […]
Cody Ross has reportedly signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, which means he will not be on the Mets in 2013 and beyond. That is a good thing. I never understood the fascination some had with seeing Ross on the Mets. He is a perfectly adequate player, but as a right handed hitter he managed to […]
