An article by posted on May 28, 2008

Please be advised that this blog was compiled yesterday, before the Mets beat the Marlins 5-3 at Shea.  If in fact this team is beginning to turn it around, this will all seem a little less meaningful.  They say, “No news is good news.”  In the Mets case, no news is, well, no news.  Same […]
