They held the wrap party for “Nightmare on Roosevelt Avenue,” yesterday afternoon, and a good time was had by all. The Mets scored a month’s worth of runs to commemorate the ending of a nightmarish first half of baseball. Broken bodies, coupled with botched pop-ups equaled shattered hopes. Hopefully, now Jason, Freddy Kruger, and all […]

Good day to everyone! I’m feeling especially great today after watching the depleted Mets win back to back games for the first time in a little while. It’s amazing how two wins, incredibly different in makeup, can change the opinion of a fanbase in a hurry. One win, fueled by the strong pitching of our […]

It’s amazing how wide ranging the opinions have been on the trade that sent Ryan Church to Atlanta for Jeff Francoeur on Friday. It looks likes this trade has the fan base far more divided than the Lastings Milledge trade, with both sides either loving it or hating it. I took a spin around a few […]

JMAN’s post-game last night–not so good. Very Randolph-esque now. Lots of mumblin’, lots of hoping, lots of “it’s not so good; we have to try to turn it around” crap! Fans, I’m thinkin’ it’s high time for a little fire and brimstone. Whadda ya say? No one would seriously argue that a bit of the […]
