Kicking the Tires on a 2011 Playoff Push

35

The Mets are presently hampered with the decision regarding whether Jose Reyes should receive a long-term extension. But if they resolve it, is it worth it to push all the chips in for a postseason run in 2011?

A Few More Words on Wilpon with The New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin

55

The New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin created quite a stir with his recent article focusing on Fred Wilpon and the backlash from the Madoff ponzi scheme. Toobin gives a brief interview to follow up on this article and discuss how things stand with the ownership of the New York Mets.

New Yorker Joins Mets' Madoff Fray via Extensive Fred Wilpon Interview

116

The New Yorker magazine published an extensive interview with Mets owner Fred Wilpon regarding the ongoing Madoff trustees lawsuit. While it decidedly shares only one side of the story, Wilpon's provocative comments should at least provide new insights to a story with no end in sight.

The Prayer Of The Shea Faithful

Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes, and Ignoring the Contract Year Fallacy

80

Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes have a lot of questions to answer before their future with the Mets becomes any clearer. None of those questions should pertain to whether their excellent performances of late are due to selfish reasons in a contract year.

Please Say You're OK, Jason Bay

24

Jason Bay hasn't rewarded the Mets' faith in him since New York acquired the left fielder in 2009 despite the advances of a Red Sox organization enamored with the left fielder who replaced Manny Ramirez. He'll need to step up his game before Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes stop obstructing his spotlight.

The Mets' Ike Davis is off to a hot start in 2011. Can he sustain his early season success, or will his mid-season regression be a harsh one?

Comparing the Mets' pitch count splits against MLB averages from 2002-2010

Did the Mets' offensive troubles under Jerry Manuel discriminate by pitch count? Compared to the MLB averages from 2002-2010, the offense may have dug itself into a hole while aggresively trying to climb out of it.
