The Precipice of Excitement

Something is brewing in Flushing, it is slowly building after a roller coaster of a season thus far. That something is optimism. Powered by their young pitching arms Mets fans have reason to believe things are starting to turn a corner, well maybe.

While the team’s pitching has been dominant their offense has been equally pathetic. Yes we can blame injuries but the offense was beyond futile and it has been costing them a potential playoff spot this season. Yet with all injuries and offensive woes the Mets sit just one game out of first place in the National League East. Here’s where GM Sandy Alderson come s in.

I’ve liked the moves Sandy has made so far acquiring Kelly Johnson and Juan Uribe from the Braves and Tyler Clippard from the A’s. Clippard will replace the assinine Mejia in the bullpen and provide additional insurance for the young closer Familia. Johnson and Uribe are solid veterans for utility and bench roles, but to really jump start this season Sandy needs to add a power Outfield bat. And as much as I love him, no we don’t need Jose Reyes back.

Gerardo Parra, Jay Bruce, Justin Upton, Jay Bruce, Carlos Gonzalez or the dream acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes. One of these players needs to be on the Mets this season to give the team the offensive boost it deserves. And the offense the fans deserves.  I’d be willing to deal anyone not named Harvey, deGrom, Syndergaard, Matz. or Conforto I would definitely consider dealing Wheeler in the right deal, plus Brandon Nimmo should be on the table.

The division is there for the taking, the Mets are ONE GAME out of FIRST PLACE on July 29th! Make it happen Sandy, make it happen so we can all excited for Mets baseball again!

Offseason Wins & Losses

I think most Mets fans are relatively content with the offseason additions the Mets have made. While the team has not been upgraded to a great extent, it’s probably better than it was at the end of last season but probably not 90 win material. Here are my thoughts on some positives and negatives this […]

No-han!!!

Waking up today after last night, I still find myself shaking my head in disbelief, I can’t believe it’s been done. I never thought I’d see one in my lifetime and on Friday June 1st 2012 Johan Santana did it, he threw the first no hitter in team history. I always wondered if it would […]

Mets Bounce Back Again

I’ve said it before but you really have to love the way this team continues to bounce back after tough losses. Tonight they got a tremendous performance out of Miguel Batista and went onto win 3-1 vs. a beat up Brewer team. I’ll be the first guy to admit that I have had no faith […]
