Meet the Mets

Thank you Phil Cuzzi for saving the Mets the humiliation of getting swept out of San Francisco. Even after Francisco Rodriguez blew the save but won the game, the Mets had gripes about Cuzzi's behavior

David Wright who injured his knee on a hard ground ball will be in the lineup tonight.

The news that Omar tried to swap Oliver Perez with Gil Meche is consistent with the rumor that the Mets are going to be the most active team in the division before the trade deadline.

Luis Castillo is coming back!

This Met team has chemistry, says John Delcos.

The Daily News caught up with former Met general manager Frank Cashen.

And, finally, you can now vote on your favorite Mets Merized-designed 2013 All-Star logo.
