And The Days Dwindle Down — For The Mets

I’ve just re-read a column I wrote in the Spring when all was fresh and new and we were excited, but didn’t know what the season would bring. The column was titled “The Boys in the Booth” and I loved re-reading it. With talent like Gary, Keith and Ron – you’ve already hit an inside […]

The Mets and Reds play game two of this final series of the season as the Mets look to end their slide. To be honest though, the reason we are all watching at this point is mostly to see if Reyes can take the NL Batting title, as he just barely leads Braun. Capuano will […]

More On Pelfrey’s Awful Season

Updated 9/26 I thought some of the comments that came out of yesterday’s loss were worth sharing. Mike Pelfrey seemed far from distraught from what I could see and matter of factly said, “I wanted to finish strong and obviously this is the farthest thing from it. The year didn’t go the way I wanted.

Prospect Pulse: Arizona Fall League

When the Mets announced their 2011 entries in the Arizona Fall League recently, people said, “Who are these guys?” and “Aren’t the Mets supposed to send their best prospects to the AFL?” Well frankly, they did.

Moneyball Movie Review

An article by posted on September 26, 2011 0 Comments

Walking into the movie theater to see Moneyball, I had my doubts. Will this capture what the book is about? How can Brad Pitt play a hot-head GM like Billy Beane? Is this going to be another Hollywood interpretation of the true essence of sports? To say the least, I had my doubts. I had very low […]

Hits and Misses: Prince Fielder, CBP, AFL, Super Bowl Predictions

The Prince of New York It’s amazing how often I see or hear Prince Fielder’s name pop up as a potential target for the Mets this offseason. I get the fascination of course, what’s not to like? But what bugs me is how willing everyone is to brush aside Ike Davis as if he’s a […]

In honor of R.A. Dickey’s near no-hitter last night, I decided to dig into our archives and pull out this gem – pitched by Ed Leyro on March 13, 2010. Enjoy reading it!
