1974: That Post-Championship Season–A Harbinger of Things to Come?

So, when the smoke clears from this year’s World Series, the Mets will have taken one step closer to an infamous distinction. The conclusion of the Fall Classic will vault the Mets into the top five of teams with the longest wait in between world championships. Along with the 2016 Series’ loser, you will have Pittsburgh (1979), Baltimore (1983), Detroit (1984) and then the Mets...

Mets360 2016-17 GM Project

For the third year in a row, we did a project where 30 people took over the roles as the 30 MLB GMs and conducted the offseason in a week. We did arbitration, made trades and signed free agents. At the end of the week, we were supposed to submit 25-man rosters and budgets and that information will be posted here. This project cannot ever hope to replicate results in the real world...

Mets Want To Bring Back Bartolo Colon, We Say Lets Do It!

According to Jon Heyman of Knuckleball the Mets would like to keep the Major Leagues’ sexiest pitcher in New York for the 2017 season.  Bartolo Colon, 43, surpassed everyone’s expectations in 2016, going 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA. He tossed 191.2 innings, striking out 128 and walking only 32. In a year plagued with injuries, he was truly the stalwart the Mets rotation needed. However...

Should The Mets Trade Curtis Granderson?

I want to start off by saying that I love Curtis Granderson. He plays with hustle and his off-field endeavors are admirable and laudable. He’s willing to do whatever is necessary to help the team, and is seen as a leader in the clubhouse. That being said, the Mets might want to consider the possibility of trading him this offseason. Grandy is entering the fourth and final year...

Sandy Alderson Will Have Some Housekeeping To Do Before Winter Meetings

While it appears the Mets will be in no rush to re-sign Yoenis Cespedes as reported by Buster Olney, there will be a lot of housekeeping decisions the front office will make as they get ready for a new hot stove season. The Mets started their march to 2017 by exercising their option on Jose Reyes – a no-brainer for a player who provided some modest production and put a positive...

The Mets do not need Kenley Jansen

Speculation and outright encouragement regarding the New York Mets pursuing a top-tier closer has been rampant as the postseason moves forward and relief pitching is proving itself to be a decisive factor as to which teams win and lose. With the manner in which said closers have been utilized in the 2016 postseason differing from the longtime conventional deployment, the entreaties...

Mets had all good choices with Daniel Murphy-Ben Zobrist-Neil Walker decision

The World Series is now set with a matchup of the Cubs and Indians, meaning a team that hasn’t won it all since at least 1948 will be champion. For a lot of people that will be the story of the 2016 MLB season. But one thing that perhaps shouldn’t be forgotten is how this was the year of elite second baseman. There were seven guys who played primarily second base in 2016 who...

New York Mets: What to do at second base?

The New York Mets have plenty of decisions to make going into the offseason, one of the bigger ones is what to do about second base. This past year Neil Walker had a tremendous year, when healthy, hitting for his highest average since 2010 and tying a career high in home runs. What makes this even more remarkable is that he did it all in only 113 games. When Walker was hot he was...

One of many Mets questions: Who’s on first?

You would think that a team that has reached the postseason two years running would be stable enough so that in mid-October its fans would know who will be playing the majority of the positions in the next season. And, of course, when it comes to the 2017 edition of the New York Mets that would be incorrect. In fact other than Asdrubal Cabrera returning as the starting shortstop...

When Mets turned a plane into a drugged-up orgy of carnage

Of all the 30th anniversary moments the 1986 Mets are celebrating this year — and this October, especially — it shouldn’t go overlooked: The supremely talented, thoroughly debauched World Series champs were responsible for probably the most infamous plane ride in baseball history. The carnival-esque flight from Houston to New York after clinching the pennant...

The New York Mets should pursue Kenley Jansen

The New York Mets relief pitchers let them down this postseason, as their usual dominant closer Jeurys Familia blew their chance of moving past the wild-card game against the San Francisco Giants. Familia is a fantastic closer, do not make a mistake about that, but he has yet to show that he is a pitcher his team can rely on in the playoffs.  Familia and Addison Reed, who is under...

Tim Tebow is 0-for-12 in Arizona Fall League

Remember when New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first swing in an instructional league a couple weeks back? It’s been all down hill since. Tebow is 0-for-12 in the Arizona Fall League so far, which Tim Tebow strikes out in the seventh. Now 0-for-12 with 5 Ks in the Arizona Fall League. — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) October 18, 2016 Honestly, I cannot...

ESPN writer unloads on 'washed-up' Tim Tebow, Mets

Tim Tebow made his debut in the Arizona Fall League on Tuesday, and those who have seen him play believe he has no business being there. One longtime baseball writer is downright angry about it. ESPN senior writer Keith Law, a former MLB and minor league scout, unloaded on Tebow Friday, calling him “an impostor pretending to have talent he does not possess.” Law referred to...

Terry Collins: Next season may be my last with Mets

Terry Collins is the oldest manager in MLB at 67, and it sounds like his age and physical condition may lead him to retire in the near future. Collins, who has been the manager of the Mets since 2011, told ESPN’s Adam Rubin that he will consider retirement after next year. “I just need to reevaluate at the end of this coming year what’s going on, where I am, how I’m feeling...

Bill Buckner’s 1986 World Series glove up for auction

One of the most recognizable plays in MLB history is Bill Buckner’s error in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series against the New York Mets. The Boston Red Sox first baseman allowed a ground ball off the bat of Mookie Blaylock to go in between his legs, which in turn allowed the Mets to win Game 6 when Ray Knight scored from second base. Then, of course, the Mets went on to win...

New York Mets: 2016 was a success

Hopefully by now, Mets fans are letting it sink in that the season is officially over. Despite the early exit, this season was a success for the New York Mets, and here’s why. This team was decimated by injuries. At on point, the Mets had an all-star team on the disabled list.
