A dedicated Mets fan since 1967, Petey is pained to see that the promise of a new millennium in Metdom has fizzled and sputtered the past 14 years. For the sake of the young fans who have been deprived of the magic that once made the Amazins a thing of legend, he hopes that will change soon. That somehow this franchise finds the leadership it so desperately needs to grow itself into a winner.

Being ‘Young And A Met’ Doesn’t Mean What It Once Did

In a world where dominance on the pitching mound is King, one man is the last one standing. The closer. Or maybe not the closer, but a relief “ace.” The guy who inherits a game-turning moment. The bases jammed with bad guys just itching to score and he calmly saves the day by freezing them […]
