Celebrate the 1986 Mets Championship

In 1986, the New York Mets made the Big Apple turn all of their attention to Shea Stadium through their sheer talent, fun-loving attitude and swagger. This rare combination catapulted them to a World Series Championship and allowed them to "Make the Dream Work".

This Date in Mets History: March 18

Joe McEwing joined the Mets on this date in 2000, while Luis Castillo got his walking papers 11 years later.

When the Fourth Estate Pleads the Fifth

Should the sports press always report what the team tells them to? Yes, says the sports press.

Mike Lowell Still Expects To Be Traded

I think that trading Castillo and a lower level prospect for Lowell could be a good idea if the Mets still have money to spend. Lowell would fit in with Omar's offseason plan of signing great guys with great clubhouse presence. He could platoon with Murphy at 1B and fill in for Wright on the few days he takes off. They could then sign Felipe Lopez for a year. I would also love for the Mets to sign Maya but that really doesn't have much to do with the trade outside of financial concerns.

One more reason to give Castillo his outright release

A little nugget from my buddy at ESB: "Since [Luis Castillo's] first game for the Mets last July 31, they are 56-62 when he has played and 42-23 when not." OK, I know that one player does not make all the difference, and it's not the hugest sample size, but he remains my least-favorite Met, and I can't wait to see him go. I hope the Mets keep him mothballed for the rest of the season and beyond. (By the way, the link to the picture is just because I had to include a URL of something to get this to post properly. I also thought about using this one.)
