The last four years have been difficult if you’re a Mets fan. Mets fans have had to watch Carlos Beltran take a called third strike to end the Mets’  2006 season, the collapse of ’07, the mini-collapse of ’08, the injury filled fourth place finish of ’09, and now the mediocrity of 2010. Through all […]

I’m not looking to throw more gasoline on the fire, but has anyone noticed the similarities between Ike Davis and Jeff Francoeur at the plate for the last two months? We expected Ike Davis to go into a slide, just about every rookie does. But what bugs me about Ike’s slide is the lunging and […]

There are so many avenues I could take with the K-Rod issue.  Not only has it been an embarrassment for the organization, the players, the city and the fans, but now it has an impact on the field as well.  One could argue that the season is over anyway, but even if it is, does that mean […]
