Once in a while, I have those days where in my gut I know that the Mets are going to lose. Once every fifth day, I feel really good about the game. With Johan Santana pitching, I know it will be a low-scoring affair (on both sides unfortunately). I think yesterday was the first game […]

The fears broached in spring training are coming to fruition in the first month of the season. Will the Mets be competitive when spots 2-5 come up in the rotation?

I wish everyone would stop flapping about Beltran not sliding already. All day I’ve read and heard nothing but countless swipes and insults at the guy, negative posts and articles, trash talking on him like crazy on sports talk radio, and even getting his head bashed in on SNY. Enough already! The way the play developed […]
