An article by posted on May 14, 2010 0 Comments

After an exciting eight game winning streak that made believers once again out of those who doubted, we’ve watched our beloved Metsies go 4-8 in their last twelve games, currently only one game over .500.  The bright spot in that is that the last ten games have been decided by two runs or less, which […]

Well I can’t say for sure whether Jeff Francoeur likes to eat apples or not, but he definitely likes to play for the Big Apple.  I figured today I would talk a little about a player for the Mets who is slowly becoming one of my favorite Met players of all-time.  Mr. Jeff Francoeur joined this team […]

Some might call me fickle.  Others might call me faithless.  I am certainly not fair weather.  Call me whatever you’d like.  But I’m sure that I wasn’t the only one to leave Citifield before the end of the game last Tuesday night. Those who stayed saw the Mets score six runs on so many clutch […]

Gas is expensive these days and so would be swallowing the contract of Ollie Perez.  Right now you couldn’t get a tank of unleaded in a trade for the maddening lefty.    Nevertheless, it’s time to remove the tags and push this clunker down the hill.  For everyone’s sanity.  “They Shoot Lefties, Don’t they?” has found it’s […]
