All They Are Is Dust In The Wind

An article by posted on August 25, 2007

Paul Lo Duca is getting back into the swing of things while rehabbing in St. Lucie. He appeared in both games of a double header last night while making his first rehab appearances. He caught five innings for Brooklyn and went 0-for-2 with a walk in the first game, and in the second game, he served as […]

Conine the Barbarian: What The Mets Need?

An article by posted on August 24, 2007

As pessimistic as a Mets fan can be at times (especially at the end of a close game), I am beginning to feel a small sense of hope. The tune of many bogs including one of mine has been whether or not Omar Minaya was going to do something to provide a spark in the […]

Mets Magic Number is 35

An article by posted on August 21, 2007

OK, so I am a wee bit premature with this, not to mention a tad anxious.  But my mission tonight is to educate those of you who do not already have an understanding of the magic number.  The magic number is used to determine when and how the first place team would "clinch" their position in […]

Monday Mets Minutes: Number 13 Not So Lucky For Wagner

An article by posted on August 20, 2007

Billy Wagner is probably one of the best closers the Mets have ever had.  Aside from the constant bickering with the Yankees over who really owns "Enter Sandman" (Wagner or Rivera?), Wagner has been a delight – consitant and reliable in almost every opportunity.  Granted, he has gotten into trouble, but what pitcher hasn’t?  So […]

The Mets Did What They Had To Do On This Roadtrip

An article by posted on August 20, 2007

The bell tolled at full volume for the Mets over this last week. This crucial six game voyage was a time to put up or shut up. An absolutely golden opportunity to take advantage of mediocrity and capitalize in the win column was essential if nothing else, an obligation. After all, the Pirates and Nationals […]

A Mets Fan in Braves Country

An article by posted on August 20, 2007

Sullivan County, New York is where I was born and raised. Only minutes from the original Woodstock site and 2 hours west of my Graceland. That is, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York. Today, I live in a small town in rural Alabama called Clanton. The area is nice, people are great and the fried […]

An article by posted on August 18, 2007

Something that has been on my mind fellow Mets fans, is the major issue we have at catcher. I love Paul LoDuca as much as anyone else, but lets face the facts, he’s in the midst of a decline. A recent rumor on SI.com has the Mets linked to Pudge Rodriguez and Jorge Posada. Right […]

Lets Go Mets, Sigh…

An article by posted on August 17, 2007

The game of baseball has always brought me great joy, whether watching our beloved Mets or playing in the backyard. Sadly, that joy seems to be missing from Shea, and has been for a while. In my opinion, it began when Jose Reyes  didn’t run out a ground ball with his usual hustle. Willie Randolph […]
