Screw The Curtain Calls, Gimme More Two Homer Games

An article by posted on April 28, 2008

What in the world is all this fuss about curtain calls?? Like I said last night, who cares? As far as I’m concerned the only issue is that Carlos Delgado hit two homeruns and even won a Metsy for crying out loud… Do we have to make everything so negative all the time… even when […]

An article by posted on April 28, 2008

A happy Monday morning indeed Met-heads!   This makes two weekends in a row that I was able to lay my head down at night peacefully, knowing the Mets had won. What makes this victory even sweeter is the fact it came at the expense of John Smoltz and the hated Braves. I always cringe when I […]

Wow, what a way to make a statement. Today’s big win over John Smoltz and the Braves would not have been possible if not for the efforts of first baseman Carlos Delgado.

Jeremy Cothran of the Star-Ledger takes a close look at Carlos Delgado in his column this morning.
