You Gotta Have Heart, And A Little Crazy Helps Too

David Wright is sounding like a desperate man these days. He’s seeing his power numbers evaporate and he’s had to bear another year entrenched in a mediocre lineup on a mediocre team. He’s got everything a man could wish for. A great apartment, buckets of money, a gorgeous wife and a great job … but […]

41 Years a Mets Fan

Legend has it that after Jesse Orosco fanned Marty Barrett and tossed his glove to the heavens it never came down. But on the evening of October 27, 1986, something else went even higher: My dad and me jumping up and down in the living room. At that frozen moment in time my dad was […]

Amazin’ Trades of the Past: Bobby Ojeda

Continuing this series of posts on the best trades the Mets ever made, if Bernard Gilkey was the only hitter to have a career year after being traded to the Mets, then Bob Ojeda was clearly the first, last, and only pitcher to similarly have a career year after coming to Flushing. Ojeda had been […]
