4,000 Wins, Two World Series Championships

Congratulations to the New York Mets on their 4,000th win in franchise history. And a nice job by their PR department on the above graphic, although I would have had one player to represent each decade of their history.

After A Slow Start, Granderson Has Quieted His Critics

I think it is safe to say that Curtis Granderson has been one of the most offensively productive players in the league since April 29th.
