What A View From the Top!

An article by posted on August 15, 2008

After doing what was expected necessary, our New York Metropolitans find themselves sitting atop the NL East. Clutch hitting, a stellar rotation, and a bullpen that saves games (for a change) all played pivotal roles this week. It also helped that Manny was being Manny in L.A. instead of Boston. And I would also like […]

I Hate It When I’m Right… Billy Wagner Is No All Star

An article by posted on July 16, 2008

Some called last night’s All Star marathon a great game and an exciting game… whatever… For me it was a star-studded bore… So what else is new for National League fans who have been waiting 12 years for a win. Of course, as fate would have it, a New York Met figured prominently in the game’s […]
