An article by posted on July 10, 2009 0 Comments

Quick and to the point: I don’t understand the trade. We didn’t gain anything better than what we gave away.

If Oliver Perez is the best reinforcement this team is going to gain in the next month, then I’d be hard pressed not to throw in the towel on this appalling 2009 campaign. Certainly you can point fingers, throw […]

What was the score tonight? A hundred to two, or some such. I checked out in the fourth inning to garden and get to know my children, who’ve known only a Mets fan psycho for the past month or so. Being true to my Mets OCD-self, however, I had to keep checking back. At the […]

You Know… Pat Misch Isn’t Half Bad

You could say that much of the team is a mish-mash, but after getting out of a bases loaded jam last night against the Dodgers, left-handed reliever Pat Misch has stranded eight of his nine inherited runners since coming to the Mets. In addition, he has only given up one earned run. Misch was acquired […]
