The Great American Pastime

An article by posted on March 10, 2008

Now that Spring Training is in "full bloom", I thought it would be fun to take a look at the differences between the game that our beloved Metsies play versus the other three major sports – football, basketball and hockey. "Tick-Tock, there is no clock!"  Baseball is the only sport not controlled by a time […]

Second Thoughts On Luis Castillo

An article by posted on March 7, 2008

After what seemed like an eternity battling kidney stones, I finally got some time to actually sit down and blog a little bit about my Mets. The last time I sat in front of my computer, the Mets were on the verge of acquiring Johan Santana, and I was so overjoyed to see that we […]

Okay, so it was bound to happen….Moises Alou got hurt. We all knew it was gonna happen. Okay, so maybe Omar didn’t know when he picked up Alou’s option, but that’s beside the point. Brian Schneider has a tight hammie. Ryan Church and Marlon Anderson collided, with Church still experiencing symtoms of his Grade 2 […]

A homerun by Michel Abreu, that was initially ruled a double, saved the Mets from an embarassing loss, to say the least.

Salutations fellow Mets fans! I trust you are all having a happy and healthy Thursday. For some reason, I feel like leaving my sensible self aside for a moment and just being a cocky Mets fan…one moment…   “Yeah baby! We got Johan Santana! That’s 20 wins and 250 strikeouts EASY! Put it all together […]

And Now For a Public Service Announcement…

An article by posted on February 19, 2008

One of the things I loved most about growing up in the 1980’s besides the Mets was the variety of different cartoons. Sandwiched in between school days and my nights watching Darryl and company were “GI Joe”,” M.A.S.K”, “Thundercats” and “He-Man”. As much as I loved each episode, I HATED the public service announcement(psa) at […]
