For the first time this month, a Mets starting pitcher finally earned a victory.  (Only took them 17 days.)  Last night’s win was a big one for the Mets.  (Seems like we’re always saying that.)  Mike Pelfrey went a solid 7 and 2/3 innings, giving up only two runs.  And though the Mets offense didn’t […]

I openly admit that I have not come to terms with the fact that we actually dealt with a four game sweep in Florida, because in my recent memory, that has never happened before. The Mets were usually able to scratch out a game or something, but we really messed it up this weekend. It’s […]
