A true Mets fan is also a baseball fan. I grew up in New York, but went to College in the New England area, and I now reside in Connecticut. Where, I had to change cable providers 3 times before I could get SNY. That’s for another time though. My biggest pet peeve is when […]

The Mets have had such a bad year with injuries, poor management, players making mental mistakes, and not making CitiField “home.” So are the Mets ready for September baseball?

An article by posted on August 26, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets have pretty much raised the white flag on the 2009 season, and if they haven’t, I’d be happy to do it for them.  They now have enough players on the DL to field a whole team, but as we are reduced to watching AAA and AA players wear the Blue and Orange, I’m […]

More Dark Days Ahead…

An article by posted on August 26, 2009 0 Comments

As most of you know by now, the Mets (thanks to a last ditch effort) convinced Billy Wagner to accept the trade to the Boston Red Sox. But after reading some feedback on Red Sox blogs, I’m getting a strange feeling that we got duped. Holy crap, we just got a first round pick and a […]
