A Postseason Word of Thanks

An article by posted on October 13, 2007

Now that it has been two weeks since the Mets have been *gulp* eliminated from playoff contention and the playoffs are well underway, I feel able to blog with confidence again. As a NY resident for the better part of 30 years, I know that about this time the cold is slowly creeping from bitter […]

A Very Rude Awakening…

An article by posted on October 12, 2007

I must say that I was disgusted this morning by an article I read in Newsday. It was written by Wallace Matthews, who decided to throw what little professionalism he had as a writer, out with the trash last night. I still can’t believe that a solid newspaper like Newsday allowed such a hate-filled tirade against […]

Jose Reyes Still Ranks High With Most NL Managers

An article by posted on October 12, 2007

The Mets recently granted free agency to pitcher Jon Adkins, who was one of the players that we received when we traded Royce Ring and Heath Bell to the San Diego Padres.

Luck Be A Mets Fan Tonight

An article by posted on October 9, 2007

As I reflect on a season that was simply disappointing, I begin to ponder what a World Champion really is.  The best in the game?  Not necessarily.  That’s not to say that the best team never wins it all, or that the team that does win it all doesn’t deserve to, but it is usually […]

Misery Loves Company

An article by posted on October 9, 2007

Wow, I never really understood what that meant until last night when Joe Borowski set down the Yankees and the Cleveland Indians won the ALDS in dominating fashion. Watching the Yankees crash and burn in the ALDS for the third straight season, was like being wrapped in a warm comforter on a cold winter’s day. It […]

Hey Mr. Rollins, Are the Phillies STILL the Team to Beat?

An article by posted on October 8, 2007

Good Evening, Mets fans, and Happy 2nd Monday of the off-season…  I’ll make it short and sweet today… The Phillies were NOT the team to beat in 2007, in fact, the Mets were.  And the only reason Philadelphia was able to rise to the top of the NL East is not on their own success, but […]
