On the other hand, I am kind of hoping he holds another closed-door meeting with his (by now) totally shell-shocked crew when the Mets next come into the […]

A funny thing happened on the way to the Eastern Division title: The Mets discovered the kryptonite that may derail the Phillies’ season.

There are very few big leaguers who are known for expressing just how much fun they’re having on the diamond while performing at a high level. Jose Lima, for better or worse, wore his heart on his sleeve. In 1999 Lima finished 4th in NL Cy Young votes posting a 21-10 record for the Houston […]

We took two of three from the Yankees. I could care less about whether Yankees fans consider the series important or not.
