The Streak Ends Applesauce - Braves help Mets win one, Brad Holt!, Mejia could have started yesterday


The sky is a little brighter today and this morning's coffee tastes a little bit better because the Mets finally won.

New York Mets 101: With Pictures


Met history is something that has always interested me, but was always too inaccessible for me to delve into. My baseball consciousness began in the 90s so my team knowledge consisted of those...

Uncle!!!!! Applesauce - Mets swept in four-game series by their betters, Tulo replaces Larry, give us Cohoon


I will leave it to Matthew to fully summarize the horror that was yesterday. In case you missed the last four days: what we saw against the Rockies is one of the NL's truly elite teams just...

Mixed Messages Applesauce - Collins either rips or encourages Mets, depends on source, Mejia & Familia strong


The Mets lost again, teasing us with their early leads and runners on base, but, in the end, disappointing us with another one-run failure.

Trickle Down Applesauce - Mets rained out, minor league arms impress, Bay out til end of month


The MLB squad may not have played last night, but the wannabe Mets did and with some success. Dillon Gee pitched into the eighth as the Bisons romped 8-1.

At Least Izzy was OK Applesauce - Mets staff can't throw strikes, Alderson's strategy challenged, Duaner back in NY


Last night's game marked a few milestones. For one thing, Jason Isringhausen returned to the Met roster and pitched an impressive two thirds of an inning, cleaning up Tim Byrdak's mess.

Izzy & Iggy Applesauce - Mets promote two, replace Duda and Boyer, Madoff claims Wilpons innocent


Groan. Mercifully, I was on the bus back below the Mason-Dixon line for yesterday's game, otherwise I would be even angrier. But, all is not lost. We've got Izzy and Iggy coming up and Jose Reyes...

Pelfrey Bobbles Applesauce - Mets fall short against Phils, Kiner honored tomorrow, fear Dodger Stadium

Sneaky Win Applesauce - Mets trounce Phils to open series, Young's delivery, Met insurance


That was pretty nice. It's still pretty clear that the Phillies are a really good team and with last night's game came a renewal of the heated "rivalry". "

Go Get Em Young Applesauce - Mets open series against Phils, Feliciano responds, Clemens & Piazza bury hatchet


As Chris Young and the Mets prepare to face the division rival Phillies for the first time tonight, one former Met remains in the news.

Now for Philly Applesauce - Mets take first series, Cashman blames Mets, Izzy aching


It was a pretty good opening weekend for the Mets. A Saturday win after a K-Rod blown save and Ike Davis and Willie Harris home runs on Sunday for the team's first road series win of the year. So,...

Happy New Year Applesauce - Mets open in Miami against Johnson, Byrdak's entrance song, Paulino's anemic


I decided against the blue and orange full body paint in classes today, but I'm pretty sure that that won't jinx the Mets against Josh Johnson tonight.

One More Day Applesauce - Bay to DL, Harris to start in LF, Izzy accepts spring offer, SNY part of a deal


While some fans get to enjoy the instant gratification of opening day today, we get to wait another 24 hours to see Jose Reyes step up to the plate against Josh Johnson. One thing we we'll have to...

Almost There Applesauce - Met roster set, Beltran plays, Dykstra for Kunz, Wilpons struggling


The Mets were pretty busy yesterday, beating the Nationals, getting rid of former first round busts, and finalizing the Opening Day bullpen. All good things.

Evans' Last Stand Applesauce - Mets place Nick Evans on waivers, Izzy asked to stay in PSL, SI Jinx


Despite earning a spot on my fantasy baseball roster (Mr. Irrelevant in a 336 player draft), Nick Evans appears bound for baseball purgatory again with the Mets.

Roster Clarity Applesauce - Harris makes Mets, Paulino troubling medical reports, Evans' fate depends on Beltran


As the Mets prepare to break camp, we're starting to get a much clearer picture of who's leaving Port St. Lucie with the team.

Alderson Speaks Applesauce - Met GM talks with bloggers, checks out Davis, Doug, ticket sales sag


Gather round all ye bloggers and chat with your new sabermetric overlord, Sandy Alderson. The Met GM held his second conference call with various Met bloggers, addressing all the usual concerns and...

Bad Investment Applesauce - Forbes says Mets lost value, Turner "congratulates" Emaus, Boyer can be FA


Forbes released its annual report on MLB team values and it didn't contain much good news for the Wilpons. The Mets lost 13% of their value last year, the steepest drop of any MLB team.

Precautionary Pagan Applesauce - Mets careful with center fielder, likely headed to trial with Picard, DePodesta online


The Mets have been relatively fortunate this spring with their ability to stay injury free, but that could change at any moment and at least one Met player doesn't think his career will survive an...

Dawn of a New Day Applesauce - Mets paying $19 million to players not on team, Yankees interested in Ollie


So, we don't have Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo to kick around anymore. That is probably a good thing and the way it was handled was professional and rational.

Castillo Flips Applesauce - Castillo assures even worse Citi booing, joins Phils, Beltran may be ready for opener, Izzy leader for 8th inning


As Luis Castillo joins the Phillie organization, we may get a triple dose of good news today as the Mets are expected to release Oliver Perez this morning.

Castillo's Possible Exit Applesauce - Is race to blame for Met fans hatred? SNY to show Bisons, Minaya talks with Sandy


As the Mets prepare to make another round of cuts today, there's some speculation that Luis Castillo may be among them, thus ending his very weird run with the team.

St. Patrick's Day Applesauce - There is no Daniel Murphy story here, Beltran likely to DL, Met SB battle


Just because it's Saint Patrick's Day, you shouldn't expect gratuitous random Irish links and what not. Well, let's go with one and call it a day with all that.

Puma Sticking To It Applesauce - Collins doesn't deny story, Mets look to Izzy to set-up, Mookie blogs


Mike Puma's anonymous source surprised everyone yesterday when he encouraged Puma to write that Collins was set to name Luis Hernandez as the starting second baseman.

Luis Hernandez, Really? Applesauce - Collins fed up with Met choices, apparently chooses Hernandez, MLB helps Met debt


An anonymous source has struck again today as the Post's Mike Puma reports that Terry Collins has tabbed Luis Hernandez as the Mets' starting second baseman. Color me doubtful.

Santana Suspicions Applesauce - Mets may lose ace for 2011, Paulino arrives, Samuels' sitting on motherload


The big news from Port St. Lucie this weekend was pretty disappointing, as rumors starting circulating that Johan Santana's entire 2011 season may be in jeopardy. I can't say that this really...

Duda's Chance Applesauce - Beltran's injury leaves right open, Mets split pair, Sherman packing Wright's bags


With Carlos Beltran continuing to be gimpy and unable to play, there is a big opportunity for one of the Met farmhands to start on Opening Day. Fernando Martinez continued his strong Spring play in...

Castillo Rises Applesauce - Mets beat Astros behind Castillo, Thole, Kirk, Wright > A-Rod


Reports of Luis Castillo's demise may have been premature. The gimpy second baseman continued to outplay his competitors yesterday as the Mets beat Houston 7-2.
