Penny For Your Thoughts On The $36 Million Dollar Man

Alright, folks. What is really going on here? Not one of you can convince me that Oliver Perez doesn’t need to be sat down or worse as of right now. I challenge you to try, but it’s an uphill battle just like practically every time he comes to the mound. Any Met fan that’s been watching […]

After an exciting eight game winning streak that made believers once again out of those who doubted, we’ve watched our beloved Metsies go 4-8 in their last twelve games, currently only one game over .500.  The bright spot in that is that the last ten games have been decided by two runs or less, which […]

An article by posted on May 14, 2010 0 Comments

As we enter Mid-May, the Mets find themselves in third place, 3 games behind the first place Phillies.  Depending on who you ask, their 18-17 record can be viewed as an improvement from last year’s team or a disappointment because they have not been able to play well on the road. Including last night’s game, […]
