Send Jason Bay to the minors?

Instead of just cutting Jason Bay, in a final attempt to get any sliver of value of him, could we try sending him down the minors to regain his confidence and batting eye against weaker pitchers? I...

More September callups

3

Fred Lewis, Justin Hampson, Elvin Ramirez, Jordany Valdespin, Jenrry Mejia, and Jeurys Familia It will be interesting to see how the Mets give both Familia and Mejia starts. Matt Harvey should make 2 more starts before getting shut down so one of them could slot in for him. I would like to see more of Colin McHugh. Perhaps the Mets will shift Jeremy Hefner or Chris Young to the bullpen for a bit. Neither of them are a big part of the future (if a part of the future at all) so I don't see any reason to give them these starts over Mejia and Familia.

Joel Sherman makes a good point! (!!!!)

I actually agree with everything he says in this article.

Who should the Mets call up for September?

At this point pretty much everyone knows that Colin McHugh and Jenrry Mejia will be called up. Elvin Ramirez will probably be called back up for bullpen depth and Mike Nickeas will probably be...

Captain Kirk shut down for the rest of the season

Really a shame. I was really hoping to see what he could do this September. The Mets are really going to need him to come up big in 2013.

Reds prospect Billy Hamilton breaks single single stolen base record with 147th steal of season

15

Billy Hamilton has played in 120 games this year and has stolen 147 bases, and has only been caught 33 times. This is crazy. That's over 1.5 stolen base attempts per game.

Nick Swisher seeking to match Jayson Werth's $126 million contract in free agency

22

I heard a few rumors the Mets might want to sign Nick Swisher but this is just absolutely ridiculous. Swisher isn't even going to get half of Werth's contract.

Las Vegas 51s to become Mets AAA affiliate?

Is this just speculation on the writer's part, or is this official? I'm not sure if I am reading it right. I don't remember hearing anything about this before.

ESPN thinks this is cute or something, have they forgot about Dickey?

When your team is owned by the Wilpons, sometimes its nice to get to laugh at other team's owners and their problems.

Fangraphs article about Domingo Tapia

16

With a fastball sitting in the upper 90s, an exceptional strikeout rate and a dominating season at Savannah, Tapia has a legitimate shot to crack the top 5 for some Mets top prospects lists. However, without any secondary pitches beyond his fastball and changeup its hard to see him becoming anything more than a reliever. What do you think about Domingo Tapia? Can't miss prospect or just a reliever hoping to one day make the majors?

Scott Podsednik is now a free agent

Who would you rather have, Andres Torres or Scott Podsednik? My vote goes to Podsednik.

Why Tony La Russa Made a Huge Mistake

As you may have heard, R.A. Dickey will not be starting the All-Star Game for the National League. Instead, Tony La Russa has opted to go with Matt Cain. This was an absolute terrible choice and...

Justin Upton?

128

With the Diamondbacks reportedly making Justin Upton available and the Mets needing a right handed bat, would you want the Mets to go after Justin Upton? He is having a down season but has enormous potential and is only 24 years old. Would an offer of Duda, Mejia, Familia and Aderlin Rodriguez get it done? Would you be ok with the Mets giving that much up?

La Russa scared to start Dickey

17

Apparently he thinks [San] f[r]an voted Busey Posey is not a good enough catcher to catch Dickey's knuckleball, so he wants to let Dickey pitch later in the game when Yadier Molina comes in. Which probably also means he wants Posey to catch Cain to start the game.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is officially time to jump aboard the bandwagon.

Dickey is being considered for NL All Star Game Starter

9

Tony La Russa, who is the manager of the National League All Star team, is considering pitching R.A. Dickey as the all star game starter. As long as Dickey doesn't suck for his next few starts and he doesn't pitch within a day or 2 of the ASG he should probably have it wrapped up.

Ridickeylousness?

Why isn't Ridickeylousness as popular as Linsanity was? Is it because he is white and not Asian? Is it because he is on the Mets? Is it because he plays every 5 days and not every day or two? I...

Apparently the Mets think this is what is going to propel them into the playoffs. They will never learn :(
