An article by posted on May 21, 2010 0 Comments

Yesterday I read that perhaps there would be more Yankee Fans at Citi Field tonight than Mets fans.  I suppose that is possible, but I’ll leave it to the management to get those figures.    The Yankees haven’t sold out this year either- they’ve got all those empty seats behind home plate. Not sure whether it’s […]

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

*insert David Wright inadequacy rant here* That is how I choose to begin my article. David Wright looks horrible at the plate, righties are killing him with sliders away and anyone with a fastball has a 33% chance to strike out Mr. Wright. He’s walking a fair amount, but it means nothing when he can’t […]

The Mets have made it official and have promoted R.A. Dickey while placing Jon Niese on the DL to make room for him. Tonight, Mets fans will get there first look at R.A. Dickey.  We hope his knuckleball will float like a butterfly and keep the Nationals batters off balance.  My expectations are not very […]

I live in an area where my cable provider doesn’t carry SNY. Where ESPN, FOX and TBS often black out their games and no one around here has the MLB network. I do get NESN, but who wants to hear what the SOX are doing and all those noisy advertisements? For me, this is really […]

His time in Japan was a precursor to this. Behind his diminutive stature and deceptive motion, was hidden a true ‘Warrior‘, the kind romanticized by western film and looked upon with reverence in Japan. Behind this hard throwing Japanese league veteran burned a fire to compete with the best… So Ryota Igarashi came to America…and […]
