Eight pints make a gallon. Eight is the third number that stays the same when written upside down. There are eight legs on a spider, barring accidents. Scorpions also have eight legs. According to Indian mythology, the Earth is supported on the backs of eight white elephants. Before the rise of Christianity, there were eight […]

Brian Costa of the Star-Ledger just posted an update to his blog about the Mets being on the field for some early batting practice at Citizen’s Bank Park.

Just a little something to set the mood for the huge weekend series against the Phillies. Do you remember how down we all were only two weekends ago? Now we’re the ones that are striking fear down the spines of opposing teams. Baseball is so amazing that way… I have three things that I would […]

There’s Only One NY Team In First Place, And It’s Not The Yankees!

Not only are the Mets all alone in the NL East, but they have more home wins than any other team in baseball! Last night, the Mets set a season high for runs scored with ten, while improving to 8-1 on their 10-game homestand which concludes this afternoon. So many things to be smiling about […]
