Interesting Start To MLB Playoffs; Intriguing World Series Possibilities

It has been an interesting start to the baseball playoffs. The play-in games put a different spin on things, but I’m hearing a lot of criticism of the single game format and it would be fairer to have best two-or-three. It probably would, but MLB doesn’t want to take the chance of playing in November. […]

Some Things To Watch For This Playoff Season

I am reminded of that Christmas song…”it’s the most wonderful time of the year.” It doesn’t get any better than playoff time. I’m bummed that the Mets aren’t playing significant baseball again this fall, but I guess it does give us an opportunity to sit back and enjoy these games and celebrate this great game […]

Wildcard Preview & Predictions: Who You Got?

This year, Major League Baseball’s plan to add an extra wildcard has proven to be a brilliant move in my view. It created two divisional races actually having importance during game 162, and it’s created two very great matchups tonight. I think this is probably the most evenly matched playoff tournament in a very long […]

Is Omar Vizquel Hall of Fame Worthy?

Last night was a great night for Venezuelan Baseball. We all know the story by now, Miguel Cabrera is the first non-American born player to ever hit for the Triple Crown, and even when he didn’t have to – he went out and played in a meaningless game on the road, and had 2 at […]

Triple Crown Or Not: Miggy Is MVP

This will be totally off topic, but we’re Mets fans because we’re baseball fans right? I find this year’s individual awards to be the most fascinating year I can remember. The AL Cy Young is probably between David Price, Justin Verlander and perhaps Fernando Rodney. The NL Cy Young has 5-7 legitimate candidates as I […]

His Pain Is Eased

Adam Greenberg finally had his dream recognized with the Marlins in last night’s 4-3 routing of the Amazin’s. After years and years of perseverance, over 22,000 signatures, nearly 2,400 minor and independent league at-bats, Greenberg beat the odds for one one-day contract and a second chance at achieving his childhood dream: getting an at-bat in the big leagues. The […]

Witnessing A Dream Come True

Everybody knows by now the story of Moonlight Graham right? The end result of that story is that he didn’t get a 2nd chance at getting a major league at bat. Well, in front of our very own eyes we will see an ending to a similar story. Guilford, Connecticut resident Adam Greenberg will be […]

From Bud to Beane – We Were Wrong

As a fan it’s practically our job to hate Bud Selig, but say whatever you want to say – his plan has worked. The second playoff spot has created the most interesting September I can remember. Realistically in the AL you have 8 out of 14 teams with less than ten games to go and […]
