What’s Next for Captain America?

Wright Facing Similar Crossroad as Strawberry

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

David Wright set a historic team record last night when he homered off Mark Buehrle to give the Mets a 2-1 lead, a game they ultimately would win 5-1. Those two RBI were the 734th and 735th of his career, setting the Mets record that was previously held by Darryl Strawberry. It’s amazing that he’s […]

Growing Up Together

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

When I looked at the Mets lineup yesterday afternoon against the Braves, I swore I saw it before. Indeed I did, as it was a version that has played together in Binghamton and Buffalo. Some have donned the uniform of the Brooklyn Cyclones and St. Lucie Mets. In total, 7 of 8 starters came up […]

Santana, Mets Can Dream For a Day

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

It’s pretty hard to ruin Opening Day. For at least 9 innings the fan base can hope and dream about all the best-case scenarios that were laid out throughout spring training. If they win, it’s even grander since it could be the one and only time the home team can say they are in first […]

Season Preview: 2012 Mets Not Measured in Wins & Losses

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

When you look at the 2012 Mets’ roster you can’t logically predict anything more than 75-77 wins. That best case scenario is still probably good for last place in the National League East. It also probably won’t allow for any mid-summer tease in the form of competing for the second Wild Card, and the right […]

What is the David Wright Plan B?

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Sandy Alderson gave reporters a David Wright injury update by indicating he’s in line for an “ultrasound-guided” cortisone shot in New York. Terry Collins was more optimistic, hoping that Wright gets cleared to ramp up baseball activities. Anyone who isn’t preparing for the David Wright Plan B obviously hasn’t spent time covering this team the last few years. The Mets […]

Wright’s Future Is in His Hands

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

More than a week ago, New York Mets GM Sandy Alderson finished his long drive down to Port St. Lucie, FL for spring training. A week ago Saturday he held a gathering with reporters, answering questions on the state of the Mets organization. There was no truth to the rumor that Alderson was late for […]

Nats Set a Bar for Wright that Mets Might Not Be Able to Reach

Monday, February 27th, 2012

The Ryan Zimmerman contract extension sent shock waves throughout baseball. Anytime a player is awarded a deal north of $100 million, its big news. The biggest waves, however, reached the shores of Port St. Lucie, despite the fact that David Wright and the organization downplayed the impact. You know the drill by now. David Wright has a $16 million […]

Listen: The Ryan Braun Fallout, Alcohol in the Clubhouse, D-Wright and Zimmerman

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

We couldn’t get through a week of spring training without off-the-field news. During tonight’s show I will discuss the fallout from the Ryan Braun failed drug test and how the media, MLB and Braun all come out losers in this situation. I will also give my thoughts on the Red Sox banning alcohol from their […]

Is a Divorce Between Wright and the Mets Inevitable?

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

“I think that his future is independent of club performance,” Alderson said of Wright at the Mets’ spring-training complex yesterday. “There are certain decisions that one takes that are a function of where a team is at a particular time and so forth, but if there’s anybody on the team whose performance and future is independent […]
