Neither he or Gary could remember when, and nor could […]

I just read Vac’s Whacks in the Post. Mike Vaccaro is one of my favorite sports journalists, and I almost always incline toward his take on the Mets. This morning he pronounces the death knell for our 2009 season, Mets fans. I know I’m not going to win any friends or have any influence by […]

I read an article on the internet earlier this week about how a group of agents want the new union chief to look into whether or not the owners committed collusion this past off season when it came time to sign free agents. The first thought that crossed my mind was “you got to be […]
