An article by posted on April 28, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets are undoubtedly the hottest team in baseball right now.  They have the best record over their last ten games, going 9-1 on their recent homestand and winning seven in a row.  And now, it’s off to Philly, where only one of two things can happen.  Either the momentum of this seven game winning […]

Maybe I should move more often.  My family moved from Tennessee to Wisconsin two weeks ago, and about that time the Mets were slipping deeper and deeper into a funk, starting out with a 2-6 record.  It looked like Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya might not last until the end of April with the team.

I’m one of the biggest NY Giants fan on the planet and still there is something about baseball that transcends color, gender, and culture. It can […]

An article by posted on April 28, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets of 2010 are doing things that teams of winning seasons did. Some say it’s coincidence; I say it’s a good sign. For example, the Mets current seven-game winning streak is the longest in April since winning seven straight in 2006, when they came within one game of the World Series. The April winning […]

Ain’t Nothin’ Gonna Break Our Stride, Or Will It?

An article by posted on April 27, 2010 0 Comments

When it comes to the Mets, there are no guarantees. We’ve all learned that and accepted it over the past three seasons. And while the team is hot right now, it still concerns me that all it takes is something minute to slow them down. Something as small as a rain out. A rain-shortened game […]

How sweep it is! Anytime the Mets utilize their brooms against the Braves its a good feeling. Regardless of the standings or time of the year.

The pitching this young season has been great.  I don’t think that anyone can honestly say they thought the pitchers, be it the rotation or the bullpen would perform the way they have so far.  Every expert said that the Mets couldn’t contend in 2010 because of the starting pitching after Johan but the starters, […]
