Kallet: A Q&A With 2 Of The Minds Behind ‘Knicks 4 Sale’

The two provided insight into why they’re taking so much of their valuable time to do this, what their ultimate goal is and much, much more.

Kallet: Manfred Is Progressive, But His Openness To Nixing Shifts Is Asinine

Pitch clocks — though they would bother me as a baseball purist — make sense. But eliminating defensive shifts is just plain brainless. You’re going to take strategy out of the game to produce more runs?

Kallet: Assuming Offseason Is Complete, Mets Are Not A Playoff Team

Heck, the Mets aren’t even the second-best team in their division. The Marlins, amazingly, have surpassed them following a highly productive winter.

Kallet: Overlooked And Underappreciated Piazza Belongs In Cooperstown

It’s a baseball crime that the Mets legend wasn’t elected in his first two years on the ballot, and if he’s shunned a third time it will be a full-blown disgrace.

Kallet: Sandy Not Upgrading At Shortstop Would Be Inexcusable And Unacceptable

If the Mets don’t make one more significant move in the coming months, this offseason will go down as a complete failure. This team can’t go into Opening Day as is. No way.

Kallet: Mets Would Be Downright Foolish To Trade Daniel Murphy

The Mets have the pitching, from top to bottom, and they need as much offense as they can get. They need to keep Murphy.

Kallet: If Mets Are Serious About Winning, They Should Hire Maddon Or Gardenhire

Terry Collins will be the Mets’ manager in 2015. But he shouldn’t be. It’s just a shame that this franchise, supposedly on the rise, isn’t willing to take a risk.

Kallet: Lucas Duda Puts A Beautiful Bow On His Breakout Season

There’s plenty more to prove, but there is no longer — by any stretch of the imagination — a hole at first base. Duda is the guy moving forward, and the Mets can now say that with authority and confidence.

Kallet: Jacob DeGrom Should Be Your 2014 National League Rookie Of The Year

Assuming nothing drastic happens over the final two weeks of the season — such as deGrom allowing eight runs in consecutive starts — the right-hander should edge the speedy Hamilton.

Ranking The 10 Most Disappointing Local Baseball Players Of 2014

The Bombers spent nearly $500 million in the offseason and this was the year that the Mets were finally expected to contend. Let’s just say it hasn’t worked out for either party.

Kallet: Unlikely Trio Is Making Mets’ Future Look Even Brighter

Fast forward to mid-August, and Travis d’Arnaud, Lucas Duda and Juan Lagares have made tremendous progress — and taken their games to new levels.

Kallet: Surging Mets Need To Get An Impact Bat And Go For It

There’s no reason to wait anymore. We’ve waited long enough. Make your move, Sandy, and let’s see what this club can do.

Kallet: I Love The Mets, But I Just Can’t Watch Them Anymore

It’s late-June, and I have stopped watching games. I’m done. It’s just too infuriating, too maddening, too depressing, too boring.

Kallet: The Mets Have Great Pitching, But Does It Even Really Matter?

It’s fantastic that the Mets have a wealth of pitching. But do you know what else it is? Infuriating.
