Loyalty & Stupidity

An article by posted on July 23, 2009 0 Comments

Say what you will about Mets ownership, but one thing they have shown is that they are 100% loyal to G.M. Omar Minaya. Since Carlos Beltran (remember him), was caught looking to end the 2006 playoff run for the Mets, the team has been in a state of steady decline. The Collapse of 2007 is […]

Remembering The Expos

An article by posted on July 22, 2009 0 Comments
