HYPE files: Wilmer Flores

By
Wilmer Flores

Wilmer Flores, 1B/2B/3B: This column is usually to bring attention to prospects not getting enough attention, but this week is different. To Mets fans that follow the Minor Leagues, Wilmer Flores is a prospect that gets a lot of attention and has been visible since he was 16 years old. However, in the mainstream sports media there is a lot to be desired. New York sports networks like SNY spend a lot of time talking…

R.A. Dickey’s resurgence, odd SB trio, Wright’s second-half slump

August 31, 2012
By
RA Dickey

After he got hosed out of starting the All-Star game, Mets fans want R.A. Dickey to get the Cy Young Award for the 2012 season more so than normal. Unfortunately, he is likely behind Johnny Cueto and Clayton Kershaw at this point in the season in the minds of the voters. There’s still time for Dickey to make up ground on the leaders but if he is unable to do so, we can blame a…

The evolution of the New York Mets: Bargain basement edition

August 30, 2012
By
Ike Davis

My first post on Terry Collins was fun. It generated a bunch of intelligent comments and, if one chooses to read them in the order they were written, we created a wonderful read on both the Mets and TC. My past administrator blog role prevented me from developing relationships with readers that commented and being freed from that here is a Godsend. I was never a great blog administrator. But I am a decent Mets…

Harvey2

Wouldn’t you know it? The Mets are on a four-game winning streak! It’s hardly cause for celebration, but winning four games in a row (and in the process two series in a row) is at least a little soothing after all the suffering Mets’ fans have had to endure in the past month or so.

“man looks into the Abyss, and there’s nothing’ staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character, and that’s what keeps him out of the Abyss… Lou Mannheim – “Wall Street” We’re all getting pretty sick and tired of all the one liners on Twitter about the Mets win-loss results post all-star game. No additional time needs to be spent here, but you know there will be plenty. Baseball, like all sporting events,…
