How Jerry Dipoto Would Run the Mets

There was joy in Flushing when Sandy Alderson and the Mets re-signed Yoenis Cespedes to reprise his role as “Mets Offense” for the 2017 season. Since the Cespedes announcement on November 30? Literally nothing but a bunch of minor-league free agent signings and invitations to spring training. We appreciate @MetsGM for his professionalism and perseverance; it’s hard to work […]

Our 2016 Mets World Series MVP

In summary: The pitching was good until it wasn’t; the offense was never good. Mets lose 5-1. The good: Robert Gsellman is good! The SoCal native fit in perfectly to the Mets rotation in his first start on Sunday — both the hair and the slider. The hard-throwing righty was the victim of Terry Collins’ […]
