Citi Field is a fun place to be again. The Excitement has returned to Flushing, as the Mets blasted themselves over the .500 mark with 2 grand slams a few days ago.  I am sure all Mets fans remember that disastrous four game series against the Colorado Rockies back in April.  The Rockies came in for a 4 game set, […]

An article by posted on June 30, 2011 0 Comments

Game Summary True NL vs AL fashion here tonight. Sixteen runs scored for the Mets on twenty hits…and no homeruns. Tigers smashed in five over the fence. Totally different styles of scoring.
