Once upon a time…there was a first baseman who played in New York. He was adored by fans, admired by teammates and respected by those who competed against him. Known for his large hands and quiet disposition, Gil Hodges led the Brooklyn Dodgers to the NL Pennant in 1952. Hodges hit 32 Home Runs that […]

An article by posted on June 28, 2008

The Yankees beat the Mets today 3-2 in a rain-soaked game at Shea that saw the Mets fall back to two games below .500… again. The Mets wasted yet another start from their new ace Johan Santana.

Welcome to another installment of Hot or Not. This week was an interseting one in Mets Nation. After losing 2 out of three to the MLB worst Mariners, the Mets really picked up their game against the Yankees. Despite the 9-0 loss in the second game, the Mets offense did manage to get on base. […]

What’s That Smell? Oh, It’s The Subway Series

An article by posted on June 26, 2008

Both the Mets and the Yankees are coming into this weekend’s subway series with records neither fan base is happy about. The water cooler has not been bearing witness to any smack-talk as it usually does this time of year. Rather, Yankee fans and Met fans seem to be avoiding each other, hugging the shadows […]

Changes Are On The Way

An article by posted on June 25, 2008

The one thing that I’ve already grown to like about Jerry Manuel, aside from his colorful comments, is the way he reacts to the team. Last night it was refreshing to see him run out there and jump down the umpire’s throat and protect his player. A week ago, I like the way he handled […]
