If you would have told me that the Mets would be in second place at the beginning of June, I probably would have believed you. If you had told me we’d be in second place without Jose Reyes and Carlos Delgado and with Wilson Valdez and Fernando Martinez, I probably would have laughed in your […]

An article by posted on June 12, 2009 0 Comments

Tonight inter-league play continues with this year’s first installment of the Subway Series. I like inter-league play. Its a great chance for fans to see players that would not regularly see during the season. I even like the Subway Series. However,  I don’t like the fact that the geographical rivals play six games a season […]

Now, we don’t want to talk about “choking” anymore because that sends some Mets fans into a tizzy concerning overused and tiresome sports metaphors. Besides, who really thinks we choked tonight? We played great baseball, happened to blow another lead. I think, let me see if I have this right, the third straight lead in […]
