An article by posted on December 27, 2007

It’s hard to believe that 2007 is finally coming to a close. Not only did "Your Season" not come, but it looks like for most of us, "our off season" hasn’t come either. Now that we are only days away from the official start to 2008 everyone seems to be getting a little retrospective this […]

David Wright Should Be Named Captain In 2008

We all know that one day in the near future David Wright will be named captain of the New York Mets. It may be in two years or it may even take three years, but it’s going to happen. I think it should happen now… maybe in spring training before the team heads up north […]

A Word Of Warning To The National League East

An article by posted on December 21, 2007

Yesterday I affirmed my belief that the Mets are the team to beat in 2008. Despite all the negativity that has arisen from the lack of adding a top starter, I still believe that the Mets will in fact win the National League East and go to the post season with a drive and burning […]

The Mets Really Needed A Second Helping Of Castillo

An article by posted on December 20, 2007

In the past two months it seems that every Mets post on every Mets site has to do with pitching.

Fade To Black…

An article by posted on December 17, 2007

It’s a Little League parents worst nightmare. Their child being hurt during a game that is…  Torn between jumping the fence to coddle their precious child, or let them take their lumps and learn to pick themselves back up.  Within an instant a wild pitch hitting them in the back, an outfield collision or even […]

We Have the Right to Question Omar Minaya

An article by posted on December 15, 2007

It is probably very hard…wait…it is very hard to be Omar Minaya right now. But watching the Diamondbacks aquire Dan Haren from the Athletics and then trade Jose Valverde to the Astros makes me wonder: what is Omar doing? Or not doing?
