  • Core Crossroads

    After a week where Edwin Diaz blew three saves and the Mets lost 2 of 3 to the lowly Marlins, Mike Silva questions whether it’s time to move on from the 2022 core and start fresh.

    Hear his thoughts on Pete Alonso, Edwin Diaz, Francisco Lindor, and Brandon Nimmo. Just like a bad relationship that isn’t working, perhaps it’s time to go separate ways to make life better for both parties.

  • $158 Million Dollar Decision

    Brandon Nimmo’s walk-off against the Braves salvaged a lost weekend at Citi Field, where there appeared to be a vast gap between the NL East contenders and the Mets.

    With Memorial Day just around the corner and the Wild Card race shaping up to be more competitive than initially thought, should the discussion about dealing Pete Alonso start to take shape?

    Hear Mike discuss Joel Sherman’s report on Alonso’s contract negotiations, the current Mets offensive state with and without Alonso, and how difficult David Stearns's decision is coming at the trade deadline.

  • Blocking the Plate

    MLB has been messing with the rules and trying to legislate everything for the last decade. The ambiguity creates problems, and we saw that this year with the McNeil-Hoskins incident and now with Alonso and the blocking the plate scenario on Wednesday. Mike explains why this is an example of how overreaction to one play and fear of social media outcry makes things worse.

  • Warning Signs Become Reality

    May is here, and we can finally start to see who this 2024 Mets team is. Are they the sub-.500 bunch that seems not to hit when they get good pitching and not pitch when they hit? Why aren’t they better despite an elite bullpen and decent starting pitching results? The warning signs from the West Coast trip seem to have become a reality. This team is frustrating, and Mike will tell you why

    The Mets got some homegrown help this weekend as Jose Butto shined in a 6-inning//9 strikeout performance. Can Butto and perhaps Christian Scott give the Mets a homegrown flair to their rotation later this summer?

    The crowds at Citi Field were small but passionate. With their weekend performance, the Mets fans showed they could create a home-field advantage for the Amazin’s. Hear Mike’s thoughts on that and the ovation for Francisco Lindor.

    The pitching epidemic took another turn for the worse with the news that Braves ace Spencer Strider might need Tommy John surgery. The Players Association blames the pitch clock, while the industry blames the hunt for velocity and spin rate. Both are wrong, and the solution might be costly in dollars and cents. Hear Mike’s suggestion on mitigating a problem that won’t be fixed quickly, easily, or cheaply.

  • The Blueprint

    The Mets have the blueprint for success: 5-6 innings from the starters, enough offense to put up a crooked number, and a bridge to Edwin Diaz. What can derail them? It’s in the details, and the margin of error is thinner than you think. Saturday’s loss can be an example of what can make 2024 a subpar season.
