    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 >>

    Revis, Don't Leave Us -- Don't Be the Next New York Star Out the Door

    As of this morning, Jets owner Woody Johnson, new GM John Idzik, and coach Rex Ryan are in Indianapolis evaluating draft prospects. Also in Indiana was agent Neil Schwartz, who represents several players, most notably the Jets' All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis. Yes, the Jets brass has a great deal ... More >>

    Mets Front Office to Team: Don't be Too Good

    I've been waiting for someone in the New York press to suck up to the Mets front office by building an anti-R.A. Dickey case. I found it in Saturday's New York Post in a column by Ken Davidoff. Apparently at last week's holiday party for young victims of Hurricane Sandy Dickey showed "his true cha ... More >>

    Jon Stewart on R.A. Dickey: How Will the Mets Screw This Up?

    According to R.A. Dickey's agent, Bo McKinnis, negotiations between his client and the New York Mets are solid in terms of "a series of potential structures and lengths." What, then, are the sticking points? Bo says, "We've got a difference in terms of the actual dollars per season." In other ... 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 >>

    Dickey V. Gonzalez In Battle For Cy Young Love

    Tonight's matchup of the Mets and Washington Nationals gets about as anticipated as a game can get with no postseason at stake. The Mets, after all, have had just two Cy Young winners in their 50 year history -- Tom Seaver (1969, 1973 and 1975) and Dwight Gooden (1985). I don't know whether R.A. Di ... More >>

    Relief For Mets Is In Sight -- And His Name Is R.A. Dickey

    Late Saturday afternoon Mets fans got a surprise when Terry Collins brought in R.A. Dickey to pitch the 9th inning. Dickey gave up a home run to Juan Uribe, a .181 hitter. It was irrelevant since the Mets were trailing 6-5 and did not score in their half of the 9th.Nonetheless, it was an interesting ... More >>

    Is R.A. Dickey Juicing His Balls?

    Here's a quote from R.A. Dickey about his knuckleball: "The metaphor I would give is that if a traditional knuckleball is a butterfly, mine is more like a butterfly on steroids. It's more like a mosquito or a hummingbird than a butterfly, because of its velocity. It comes in and breaks late at the p ... More >>

    Forget R.A. Dickey, Forget Niekro -- Think Koufax

    "The best season for a knuckleballer"? Is that the best that the New York press can do to describe R.A. Dickey's accomplishments so far in the 2012 season? Just look at the record so far and pretend that you didn't know he was throwing a knuckleball. At 10-1, he's tied for the league lead in wins ... More >>

    In Mets-Rays Match, Will R.A. Dickey Reach MVP Status?

    I'm trying to remember -- was last night the first time ever that Yankees fans rooted for the Mets and vice versa? The two teams helped each other out by whipping the others' division rivals, and in doing so, I think, helped give good definition of their teams' respective character. The Mets, beati ... More >>

    Are the Mets Looking for a Reason to Dump Carlos Beltran?

    ​When is a controversy not a controversy? Offhand, we'd say when it hasn't stirred up any controversy. Carlos Beltran's sacrifice fly Wednesday gave the Mets a 3-2 win over the Nationals, and you'd think that in a season of such unrelenting disappointment that might be a high note. But fo ... More >>
