Wright And Mets Agree To 7 Year Extension – But Is It Worth It?

David Wright and the Mets have finally agreed to an extension that will keep the All-Star third baseman around for an extra seven years. This has to make the Mets fan base very happy going into the weekend – you can even call it an early holiday gift. Now, kill me for thinking so, but is it worth it? I’ve provided the graphic below to show you Wright’s stats since 2004. After 2008 you can see a decline in his numbers. Average, runs, home runs, etc. are all down since then.

Dickey Wins The 2012 NL Cy Young!

Even though I was unable to be at the game in person, being at the Baseball Hall of Fame while it was going down was pretty awesome as well. I made sure I was in the Hall the following day and sure enough there was an empty spot next to Josh...

The Ones That Got Away

Not much going on in Met-land lately, so lets discuss one of the biggest weaknesses on this team since 2007 – the bullpen. Bullpens are a tricky thing because relievers in todays game are a tricky thing. Other than Mariano Rivera and a few others, it seems like relievers can be lights out one day, week, month, or year and horrible the next. The names I’ll be discussing are basically guys who in recent years were a part of the Mets roster and then let go either by trade or released or simply just lost through waivers. I won’t criticize the...
