With the Giants being in town last weekend, and the celebration this weekend, I got to thinking about what a truly amazing feat winning the 1969 World Series was.

Well now that it is in almost everyone’s minds that this season is over, I would like to present a question.  Would a smaller Citi Field be a better Citi Field?  Would it benefit or hurt the Mets to make the field smaller for next season by bringing in the outfield fence or even making […]

Report: Sheffield Released?

According to Steve Popper of the Bergen Record, citing an unnamed Mets player, Gary Sheffield has been released from the team.
