2006-08-05T12:44:23.800-04:00The NY Mets will send Tom Glavine to the mound in game two against the Phills. Glavine is in a little funk. He has not won in seven starts. Over that period he is 0-2 with 5 no decisions. He looks to snap out of it as he will oppose Jon Lieber. Lieber is coming off a horrible start in which he blames on trade rumors. Lieber insists that he was worried about being traded and he could not focus on
2006-08-05T12:27:56.276-04:00The NY Mets have now lost two consecutive games.

2006-08-04T20:57:54.466-04:00The Mets have placed Ramon Castro on the 15- day DL. He was sidelined for a few days with a strained obbliq and has not been able to make a recovery. Veteran Catcher Mike DeFilice has been called up to replace him. It is my guess that either DeFilice or utility man Eli Marrero will make the start behind the plate in tomorrow's day game. It will be the first time since the 28th of July that Paul

2006-08-03T21:17:31.110-04:00Jose Reyes would have been avalible for salery arbitration in the off season and as the Mets usually do they avoided arbitration. They gave Reyes a deal worth 23.25 million dollars over 4 years, with an option for a 5th year. In my belief Reyes gave the Mets a deal. I think he is worth way more.

2006-07-31T15:09:05.380-04:00With just an hour left before the deadline the Mets have yet to make a big trade. Many of us are starting to wonder if they will make a trade at all.

2006-07-31T09:57:21.726-04:00Late last night, Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus announced that the Mets were "Swinging for the Fences".

2006-07-29T20:54:56.886-04:00There is a term that is used when one person completely fools another person into giving them something. That term is "beat in the head".

On July 28th they traded OF Kevin Mench, RHP Francisco Cordero, OF Laynce Nix, and minor leaguer Julian Cordero for outfielders Carlos Lee and and Nelson Cruz.First off Mench and Lee are both good average
