New Years’ Resolutions —   Isn’t that a scary phrase?    Do you ever make them?    Or, I should say, if you do, do you keep them?     I wonder if the Mets do….   I wonder which players spend their winter making plans for the summer….   I’d like to think that Sandy […]

Oliver Perez Pitches After 12-Day Layoff

An article by posted on December 29, 2010 0 Comments

Oliver Perez is no stranger to days off.  As we all know, the Mets would not use Oliver Perez out of the bullpen a lot during the season, thus giving him plenty of time off to ponder his predicament.   It appears the Los Tomateros de Culiacan are taking the same approach with Oliver Perez, as the Amazin’s […]

The Offseason The Earth Stood Still

Yes, it certainly feels that way for Mets fans especially for those among us who don’t have the stomach for patience.
