Burgos: Turns himself into police.

Burgos: Turns himself into police.

Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos turned himself in to police in the Dominican Republic Tuesday night. He had been on the run for a week after a hit-and-run accident that killed two women.

There’s news the mother of 29-year-old Angely Fana – Eudosia Ruane – claims Burgos intentionally ran down her daughter over because she refused to go out with him. She has filed a report charging homicide.

He faces up to two years in prison on the hit-and-run charges. Burgos also faces an unrelated charge of illegal weapon possession. He also has an Oct. 23 court hearing in New York on assault and harassment charges after he allegedly threw his girlfriend to the ground.

Manny wants BIG bucks

Ramirez: Mets need to run away from him.

Ramirez: Mets need to run away from him.

Tracy Ringolsby of The Rocky Mountain News is in the writer’s wing of the Hall of Fame for a reason. He knows his stuff. Covering the NL Division Series, Ringolsby is reporting Manny Ramirez’s agent, Scott Boras (what a surprise), wants a five-year deal worth $85 million.

In 53 games for the Dodgers, Ramirez batted .396 with 17 HR and 53 RBI. No doubt, despite that short window of playing time, he’ll get some MVP consideration.

That’s fine, as long as the Mets don’t give him any consideration in the off-season. The Mets, their problems hitting with RISP, were still second in the league in runs scored. They need to spent the money on pitching.

Gooood morning with a season-ticket update ….

Have a good day.

Have a good day.

Very crowded last night in Mets Chat Room. Just the way I like it. For those who joined us for the first time, I hope you had a good time and will be back.

More of the same for me today. Back to the library with the laptop.

I checked in with the Mets this morning about season tickets, and there’s partial plans haven’t been determined yet. I’ll keep an eye on it for you.

In the interim, if you have any questions for the Mets you aren’t getting answered, forward them to me and I’ll make the calls.

Mets Chat Room: Talking Mets.

CHAT ROOM

CHAT ROOM

Hi folks. Are you ready for some football? Not when you can talk about the Mets. I’ll do this regularly in the offseason and hope you’ll regard this as your vehicle to talk about the Mets.

Which coaches should stay or go? What moves will they make? How are the playoffs going for you? Still want K-Rod?

Whatever is on your mind, let’s talk about it.
