An article by posted on September 2, 2009 0 Comments

Ask just about any Mets fan nowadays about who will be behind the plate in 2010, most will have no idea. And, I can’t really blame them, the Mets have not made getting a quality catcher a priority in the past few seasons, unless you call Brian Schneider and his .189/.272/.318 line quality. If you […]

So another month ends in what seems to be the never ending saga of the 2009 Mets. In a month where the Mets put together only 10 wins, it’s hard to find hope in a lost season. No Met pitcher had more than 2 wins in August. It’s a bittersweet twist because it’s much easier […]
