An article by posted on June 13, 2009 0 Comments

After the ending to last night’s game, the Mets needed someone to step up today.  Perhaps it would take the collective efforts of more than one man to erase the bitter taste of the Friday Follies that took place in the ninth inning.  Maybe three men would be needed.  Which men could lead the team […]

I can’t believe what I just saw… I find it so hard to remain optimistic after watching the Mets lose in gut-wrenching fashion once again. With a huge victory only one out away, Luis Castillo drops the game-ending third out, allowing two Yankees runs to score and give them a walk-off victory in front of a packed […]

With the news that John Maine has been placed on the disabled list with what Omar Minaya calls “weakness and fatigue”, can we now seriously consider the need for another starting pitcher? Who knows when John Maine will come back. If we were to go by what he said last night it would leave us once […]
