think its time for Terry Collins to go; makes a number of decisions I just don't get and this team plays with no fire or spirit; I know injuries wrecked the season but I just think new leadership would help next year

agree; he isn't bad in a serious way and there is too much to do about prepping for 2018 to make a splash now; someone younger with a little fire

Sandy will be back, but the the coaching staff will go. Not sure if any of the coaches have an "in" with the Wilpons, but if not, "see ya".

He might try to come back, but personally I think you'll be hearing some kind of announcement from him in the offseason.

Even Donnie Baseball had to hang it up before "his time"

The Mets broadcast team is very good on both TV and radio. I can pick up the Phillies broadcast on my radio and sometimes tune in when they are playing the Mets just to hear what they say about the Mets. Their broadcast is doesn't compare.

Cabrera asked to be traded a couple weeks ago. He's the one they kept.

don't ever remember a team with this number of injuries; we need...let's see...Noah back as Noah; Wheeler, Harvey and Matz back; Familia back; Cespedes and Conforto recover; and which of the young guys make it....Rosario, Smith, TJ Rivera, Nimmo; and who else????

I'm currently (re) reading a book titled "Field of Screams" before I donate it to our community lending library...



very entertaining about all the criminality, corruption, anger, fighting, even racism, etc in baseball. Goes all the way back to it's roots, owners, players, gamblers etc.

So it was very entertaining to see the baseball game that broke out at a series of fights out in Detroit last week

I was at work and brought up MLB network to check the score (slow afternoon after a crazy week) Thursday and voila... Romine and Cabrera were into it and everyone was piling on. I was hooked (thankfully we test video feeds so it was not unusual to walk by and see some random game on) and left a screen up with the rest of the game...

http://www.freep.com/story/sports/ml...rea/598937001/

Yesterday, saw a different kind of history, we were at the game sitting near 3B and got to watch the Mariners commit a franchise record of 5 errors in one inning, en route to a 10-1 loss to the Yanks. Apparently no major league team has committed that many errors in an inning since the 1977 Cubs

Great game, beautiful weather... fun to watch.

The discussion now is whether the Yankees are going to keep pushing Judge all year, when he's batting around .200 since early July. Kid needs to sit more, regroup, be dropped out of the 4 hole.
