Losing Makes Me Snippy

An article by posted on October 4, 2007

Well, here we go, another fall and winter filled with free agents and trade rumors. Granted, part of me always enjoys the off season. Who is going where? Why and for how much? Let me just say that losing that 7 game lead hurt almost as badly as that Yadier Molina home run in the […]

The Most Wonderful Dream

An article by posted on September 28, 2007

Last night I had the most wonderful dream. I was back in New York and at Shea Stadium for the last game of the 2007 World Series. The Mets and Indians had played themselves into a 3- 3 series tie thanks to some late inning heroics by Guillermo Mota, who struck out the side in […]

The Imperfect Champions

An article by posted on September 20, 2007

I think most baseball fans (including me); have a chip on their shoulder concerning their favorite teams (unless they are Skankee fans that believe their team could win a title with one hand tied behind their backs). Every time a bad play is made fans like us automatically assume that the game and even the […]

A Terrible Wrong Finally Made Wright?

An article by posted on September 13, 2007

All of this week it seems we have spent considerable time lobbying for one of our own beloved Mets, David Wright, to win the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Actually, David has been making his OWN case for most of the season, everyone else finally seems to be catching on now. In my personal […]

Happy Thursday Mets Fans! It’s Okay to Smile!

An article by posted on September 6, 2007

As I’m certain that many of the Shea faithful can relate, the Mets performance from the previous day has at least a small effect on how we approach the next day. Many times we go to work, school or anywhere else with our heads hung low in shame and insides tied in knots. Even with […]

Just Looking for a Way to Blow Off Some Steam

An article by posted on August 30, 2007

After the Mets (and our) recent nightmare yesterday, many thoughts raced through my mind as to what my blog should be about today. I would really like to stay cheery and positive, but it would just feel like I’m being phony. So I have decided to go the route of a “fake it till you […]

We Still Have Our Ace In The Hole

An article by posted on August 29, 2007

Much has been made this year, (especially by me) of the lack of passion and excitement that has been missing from the Mets this year. With the exception of a Paulie LoDuca blow- up it has been pretty monotonous. It’s hard for me to say that when we have the most exciting player in baseball […]

Conine the Barbarian: What The Mets Need?

An article by posted on August 24, 2007

As pessimistic as a Mets fan can be at times (especially at the end of a close game), I am beginning to feel a small sense of hope. The tune of many bogs including one of mine has been whether or not Omar Minaya was going to do something to provide a spark in the […]

A Mets Fan in Braves Country

An article by posted on August 20, 2007

Sullivan County, New York is where I was born and raised. Only minutes from the original Woodstock site and 2 hours west of my Graceland. That is, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York. Today, I live in a small town in rural Alabama called Clanton. The area is nice, people are great and the fried […]

Lets Go Mets, Sigh…

An article by posted on August 17, 2007

The game of baseball has always brought me great joy, whether watching our beloved Mets or playing in the backyard. Sadly, that joy seems to be missing from Shea, and has been for a while. In my opinion, it began when Jose Reyes  didn’t run out a ground ball with his usual hustle. Willie Randolph […]
