If it were anyone else other than Joe De Mayo reporting this I’d brush it off but De Mayo has impeccable sources. He is reporting that upon completion of the Victor Martinez to the Red Sox deal the Red Sox will flip LaRoche to the Mets. WHY!!!!!!!! What does this mean for Daniel Murphy FUCK- […]Read More >>

This from the great Can’t Stop The Bleeding site:
In a bid to keep the peace at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies wanted to cloak or replace the 16-by-16-foot Mets banner at the top of the set decoration at the Billy Joel/Elton John concerts tonight and Saturday.
Alas, they could not find anything suitable.
Joel will wear a […]

Sure Iâ€™m geared up for the trading deadline this afternoon but my hope as a Mets fan is for Omar to grab a sandwich and go to Flushing Meadow, find a park bench, shut off his cell phone and let the trade deadline pass him by.
But if anything breaks today Iâ€™ll be back Iâ€™m in […]

On Pro Baseball Central tonight at 9PM EDST on Blog Talk RadioÂ we will discuss the surging Mets and Johan Santana’s performance in Game 1 of the day/nighter plus we’ll keep an eye on Jon Niese in Game 2. We will tie up the loose ends on the Omar/Tony B fiasco and we will have as […]

Good move last night by the Mets to call the game and not let Johan take the hill, pitch 2 or 3 innings then go back to a delay and lose him for a start. So today we have a day/night affair with Santana starting the matinee and John Niese pitching after dark.
First time I […]

JP Riccaridi has been left out to dry by Ruben Armaro Jr as the Amaro deals with the Tribe to grab Cliff Lee the reiging CY Young Award winner in the AL and holds on to Kyle Drabek and J A Happ.
Omar if you can swing a deal for Roy Halliday all is forgiven in […]

Kids, I was thisclose to getting a word with Jeffey Skill Sets yesterday, thisclose.
I left my office on W.Broadway at 4PM to go to the game last night. I grabbed an uptown 2 train to Times Square and jumped on the 7 which just happened to be an express and I arrived at $iti Field […]

The site was having problems this morning and Iâ€™m blaming Jeffey Skill Sets and some Wilpon sabatogie for that but a big thanks to Sports Media Mogul Joe McDonald for fixing whatever it was that messed the place up.
As we approach the 24th hour since the M. Donald Minaya disgraceful presser the debate still rages […]

What should have been a quickie presser by Omar Minaya to confirm that Tony Bernazard had been relieved of his duties with the Mets turned into a cluster fuck as only the New York Mets could produce.
As we all know by now, Minaya threw Daily News writer Adam Rubin under the bus and Omar came […]

Just saw this posted on the NPB Track site and it comes from Bobby Valentine’s web site annoucing that he will be leaving the Chiba Lotte Marines after this season. In this part of the post who could substiute the name Chiba Lotte Marines with New York Mets and it would read the same:
