Young Fans Are Being Denied Great October Baseball

Last night the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants played an incredible baseball game. There were big hits, huge strikeouts and some of the most heads-up baseball I’ve seen in a long time (see Matt Duffy running the bases). A few minutes before midnight, after the Giants tied the game in the 9th inning, […]

The 2,700 Hit Club Not in the Hall of Fame

There have been 65 players in MLB history that have racked up at least 2,700 hits. 3,000 hits has been a magic benchmark, but to get 2,700 hits – if you’re not in the Hall of Fame – you’re just one notch below. So who are the members of the 2,700 hit club that aren’t […]

Derek Jeter Through The Eyes Of A Mets Fan

Derek Jeter, the crosstown rival player we Mets fans loved to hate. He was the embodiment of perfect and one heck of a ballplayer. From the clutch hits to the jump-throw across the diamond to saying exactly what you are supposed to say after a valiant losing effort. For 19 years Jeter did it all. […]

Featured Post: Selig Declares Baseball A “Social Institution”

Bud Selig sat with SNY’s Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling and Gary Cohen during the early innings of Tuesday night’s 9-1 bashing of the Miami Marlins.  They discussed issues facing not only the Mets, but baseball as a whole and the back and forth was interesting to say the least.  The crew had their take on a […]

In Sandy We Trust?

Despite all of the offseason moves and despite all the talk of being a 90 win team, at 37-48, the Mets are now 11 games under .500 on July 3rd for the second consecutive year. At this point last season, the Mets were the same 37-48 featuring a lineup riddled with minor league players such […]
