Ever since I experienced Mike Piazza's post 9/11 home run to beat the Braves in person at Shea, I have been a die-hard Mets fan and exhaustive lover of baseball. I am currently a student at Ithaca College where I am a pitcher on the varsity baseball team. My pitching idols include Sandy Koufax and Tom Seaver. My dream is to one day pitch on the mound at Citi Field wearing the orange and blue. Let's Go Mets!

Jose Reyes Ready For Anything In 2017

That impressive 12.8 K/9 was blown away, however, when after he was called up to the Bigs, he struck out 25 batters […]

However, with a recent report saying the Mets want two prospects for Jay Bruce, there is a possibility that they might not bring in a player like that. If that possibility comes […]
