An article by posted on April 12, 2009 0 Comments

Buffalo 4, Pawtucket 2 in 15 innings Boy, we’ve had some long games early this season. I believe a 14 inning affair for Savannah, now a 15 inning game in Buffalo, resulting in the Bisons first win. Nick Evans provided the heroics with his first hit of the season, a walkoff 2 run homer in […]

Okay, it’s a silly question, but it just seems he can never catch a break. We all know that a combination of an incredible error and absolutely no bat support did him in once again. How many times did we watch this scenario unfold in 2008! Admittedly, Josh Johnson is becoming Public Enemy #1 as […]

A Page Out of 2008

A Page Out of 2008 And a bad one at that. Yes, we battled back, and that was great to see, but we should have won this game, not lost 5-4 after coming back twice. We lost because we left 14 men on base, and because every time we needed the big pitching performance from […]

You know, a friend of mine once told me that I was the only person who actually answered that question when she asked it to try to change the subject of a conversation. She couldn’t believe she found such an avid Mets fan who took her literally! I laugh every time I think about that. […]

April 8, 2009. Francisco Rodriguez comes into the game against the Cincinnati Reds in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Mets have a two run lead, and need their stud closer to come in and shut the door to close out the win. In true Mets-fashion, Frankie gives us all reason to keep our […]
