Add Jon Niese to the disabled list for the rest of the year, the 22 year old lefthander suffered an injury in today’s afternoon game.  It didn’t look good and as “luck” would have it the news is nowhere near good.  Niese had an MRI done and the results of the MRI revealed a complete […]

Blogger’s disclaimer:  I am not being serious in this post in any way, shape or form.  I’ve just had enough trying to figure out what went wrong with this year’s team.  While others blame Omar Minaya or the trainers, I’ve found something else to blame for this year’s misfortunes.  Read on… It was April 13, […]

At this stage of the game I would think that even the most optimistic of Met fans would have to agree that there will be no “meaningful September baseball” this year. With a schedule featuring mostly teams that were below .500 the Mets had a chance to make a splash in the NL Wild Card […]
