An article by posted on April 9, 2008

I sit here thinking I felt this way last September and, for some reason, I can’t do anything but watch in disgust. Am I worried? No. Absolutely not. Are there people who are about to be suicidal?

Luis Castillo has been replaced in the 4th inning of todays game by Damion Easley. Apparently the right knee that was supposedly taken care of in the off season is just as creaky and as weak as ever.

Finally, Friday has arrived! The pinnacle of the week in my eyes in that it’s just close enough to the weekend to start getting excited. I didn’t have anything really specific to write about today, so I figured I would make a blog “gumbo” of sorts, and write about many. First up, the Mets 13-0 […]

Relax, It’s Not Like We Lost Our Ace Or Our Number Two Or Three Pitchers

An article by posted on April 3, 2008

Pedro Martinez is on the shelf….again. For at least the next six weeks he will sit along side left fielder Moises Alou, backup catcher Ramon Castro, and setup man Duaner Sanchez. The trip to the disabled list is certainly no foreign place for the 36 year-old righty. It had to be expected at some juncture this […]
