To begin, let me first commend the Mets on the remarkable fight and resiliency they displayed yesterday at PNC Park where they beat the Pirates 9-8 in ten innings.

The last time the Mets were in Pittsburgh, I wrote a piece about PNC Park having similar effects to the Mets as Atlanta’s Turner Field once had, and to an effect, still has.  Over the past few years, PNC Park had become a house of horrors for the Mets.  They failed to clinch the division […]

I used to consider the Mets my therapy and my stress relief from the daily grind, never did I believe that they would become the source of my angst. I thought for sure that we were going to win it all in 2009 after we signed K-Rod and traded for Putz. I really wanted to […]
