And Now The Fun Part Of The Season Begins

An article by posted on September 17, 2008

Say what you want about last night’s stinker against the Nats, but I’m not ready to throw in the towel just yet. It’s become quite clear to me that this Mets team plays a heck of a lot better when they are doing the chasing rather than being chased. While last night’s loss represented a big […]

Is It Fair To Compare David Wright To Alex Rodriguez?

An article by posted on September 16, 2008

I came across an interesting blurb by Matt Cerrone as I was checking out MetsBlog this morning.

We’re in the Home Stretch!

An article by posted on September 13, 2008

The New York Mets have 17 games left to play. As has been the story all season, we blew a 7 game lead with 17 left to play. It’s bad enough we historically collapsed, but if I have to hear about it on a national broadcast one more time, I’ll break my TV. Seriously, the […]
