    Let Us Now Harshly Mock the At-Bat Music of the Yankees and Mets

    Chris Carter had a short career in the major leagues. He hit below league-average in 113 at bats from 2008-2010. He played in Japan the past two years. His career wasn't that notable except for one thing: In 2010 with the Mets, Carter's at-bat music was Rick Derringer's "Real American." As in Hulk H ... More >>

    Oh Dear God -- It's Time for Another Mets Season

    It's a drab, uninspiring team from the starting lineup to the rotation to the bullpen, but at least they'll look good. The 2013 Mets have eliminated all traces of black from their uniforms and replaced it with the traditional blue and orange. For home games they'll wear the occasional blue jerseys w ... More >>

    Mets Name David Wright Captain; Go About Your Business

    You know the Mets are hard up for big news stories when the best they can offer a week before Opening Day is that David Wright has been named captain. Exactly how important to the team is it that Wright has become only the fourth captain in Mets history? Think of it his way: the last Mets captain, b ... More >>

    According to Bud Selig, the main purpose of the World Baseball Classic is to be "our great vehicle to internationalize the sport." This was apparently intended as the silver lining to Team USA's 5-2 loss to Mexico on Friday. Translated from Commissioner-ese into English, it meant, "Hey, it's no fun ... More >>

    The Sleazy Mets

    Last month, Mets GM Sandy Alderson called R.A. Dickey "one of our two core players" in the Mets organization - the other, of course, being David Wright. On Thursday, Alderson changed his tone: "It would be a little unusual to trade Cy Young winner " - everyone is assuming, rightfully so I think, th ... More >>

    Pablo Sandoval Over David Wright In All-Star Game? It's All Your Fault, New York

    I think we can all agree - that is all of us who don't live in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area and perhaps even a few people in the Philadelphia area who watched David Wright wreck the Phillies last night with 4 RBIs--that the biggest travesty of this year's All-Star game is Pablo Sandoval over W ...
