A Word Of Warning To The National League East

An article by posted on December 21, 2007

Yesterday I affirmed my belief that the Mets are the team to beat in 2008. Despite all the negativity that has arisen from the lack of adding a top starter, I still believe that the Mets will in fact win the National League East and go to the post season with a drive and burning […]

The Mets Really Needed A Second Helping Of Castillo

An article by posted on December 20, 2007

In the past two months it seems that every Mets post on every Mets site has to do with pitching.

Fade To Black…

An article by posted on December 17, 2007

It’s a Little League parents worst nightmare. Their child being hurt during a game that is…  Torn between jumping the fence to coddle their precious child, or let them take their lumps and learn to pick themselves back up.  Within an instant a wild pitch hitting them in the back, an outfield collision or even […]

An article by posted on December 15, 2007

It is probably very hard…wait…it is very hard to be Omar Minaya right now. But watching the Diamondbacks aquire Dan Haren from the Athletics and then trade Jose Valverde to the Astros makes me wonder: what is Omar doing? Or not doing?

The Mets, right now, are in a holding pattern. Nothing has happened. Nothing. If something had happened, I’d be writing about that instead. So, as a little treat, I have compiled my thoughts of this off season and hopefully, you will find it funny. -I’m really gonna miss Lastings Milledge and Paul Lo Duca. It […]

An article by posted on December 13, 2007

After taking some time to sift through the enormous amount of data in the Mitchell Report, I wanted to weigh in on it from a Mets fan’s perspective and also from a baseball fan’s point of view. From what I could see after sorting through the list of players, I was happy to find that […]
