This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: The All Time Infamy Team

Infamy: The state of being well known for some bad quality or deed. I have seen a lot of Mets baseball in my 41 years on this planet. I have seen the Mets win one World Series while losing in their other two appearances to the A’s and Yankees. I’ve also seen them appear in a handful […]

Matt Cain might have made the Mets look like a minor-league through the first eight innings of this ballgame, but they played like a team with some real heart in the ninth to walk away with the win. The Mets came from four runs down for the first time this entire year tonight when a […]
