Fear And Loathing In New Britain With Some RockCat Angst

B-Met Manager Pedro Lopez Throws BP Well at least Wheeler is pitching today, and I just saw him and boy does he have his game face on. After two rain-filled night games where the RockCats ate the B-Mets lunch, we got day baseball, we got sun, and we got Zack Wheeler on the hill today. […]

On The Road With Petey Pete: Wet & Soggy In New Britain

With respect to Bisons lefty Chuck James who told me a few weeks ago in response to my somewhat facetious comment to him, “Everyday’s a beautiful day for baseball.” Yesterday in New Britain, CT it wasn’t exactly a beautiful day for baseball as it rained right up until game time, and then the B-Mets lost […]
