Hot as Fire or Cold as Ice?

An article by posted on May 24, 2008

Welcome, Mets fans, to another edition of Hot or Not! Usually, this list is put into three categories: the players who are doing so amazingly well, the players who I feel are doing better than they were the week before, and the players who are slumping and could do a lot better (or the players […]

An article by posted on May 10, 2008

Welcome back to another addition of Hot and Not. The Mets have shown great strides towards improvement, but they had good numbers against Brad Penny to begin with. Hopefully, they’ll sweep this doubleheader and they get the confidence they need. Who’s HotMoises Alou: Okay, so he’s only played in a couple of games. And he […]
