5 In A Row! Mets Beat Wang in 8-5 Win Against Nationals

The Mets offense jumped on Nationals starting Chien Ming Wang early, and Dillon Gee pitched a quality game in their 8-5 win. Game Notes Dillon Gee was on point today, and without one defensive miscue may have only allowed one run for his entire outing. Gee went six and two third innings, allowing three runs […]

It appears that the Mets seem to be done wheeling and dealing their major players for the 2011 season. With the trades of Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez, I think it is safe to say that Jose Reyes will remain a Met for the remainder of the 2011 season. Given the Mets’ financial situation and […]

“Not quite as sad as when the Mets traded Seaver.  But sad nonetheless.” ~ Stuff My Dad Texts (No, literally, my dad sent me this text Wednesday night) ********************************************** I was upset last week.

Are Athletes Simply A Product?

An article by posted on July 29, 2011 0 Comments

It seems to me that Major League Baseball is working against itself. All this preparation to ‘get to the majors’ goes into the first few years of a young prospect. The kids who are chosen work their tails off to be a good player and don’t complain about the conditions or the hard work they must […]

Fun With Mets Milestones

An article by posted on July 28, 2011 0 Comments

With so many impressive athletes now playing baseball and many other sports, we sometimes forget how important little achievements are… like say, 300 saves or 300 HRs. Those are incredible numbers and very respectable in my opinion, so this is a short bit on some important numbers coming and something for you to take notice […]

Carlos Beltran: Un Icono

Everybody has something to say about Carlos Beltran leaving and I am most definitely no different. Carlos Beltran was one of my favorite Met players in history, and probably comes second only to Mike Piazza in terms of respect and adoration in my eyes. I haven’t had the opportunity to watch the Mets for as […]
