Reason To Watch

As I’ve been watching our beloved Mets this season, going through cases of Pepto-Bismol and Alka-Seltzer, I’ve still kept an interest in seeing the team win, no matter how many games out of first we’ve been.  Recently, it’s gotten much tougher to get genuinely excited over wins, though having them spaced so far apart does […]

The Mets (53-61) beat the D-Backs (52-63) by a score of 6-4 to avoid being swept. The Mets were 2-7 on this recent west coast trip. Oliver Perez was his usual self. 5.1 IP, 1 ER 7 SO. Which is OK, especially the 7 SO. But what kicked him out of the game was the […]

Livan Hernandez started the second game of the series and, like most of his games, started off shaky. Livan, was not his usual inning eater self, as he only went 4 innings, giving up 5 runs, 3 walks, and struck out 5. Tim Redding did a nice job following Livan’s poor start. Redding pitched two scoreless […]

I was watching the post game show after one of our many recent losses. You know the kind I’m referring to. The kind of loss where our lack of hitting turns marginal starters into Sandy Koufax. The kind of loss where a team who has not been hitting suddenly erupts and breaks out of their […]

A few weeks ago I made post here about legendary Met broadcaster Ralph Kiner. After reading the responses to that post, it was obvious that I had struck a nerve. No matter which team you happen follow, you establish a bond between yourself and the voices covering your team. With that in mind, today’s post […]
