What an unbelievable finish to the Mets game this afternoon. Jeff Francoeur ended the top of the ninth with a dazzling sliding catch that was originally called a trap (it wasn’t). Francoeur made a mad dash to the second base umpire and went ballistic, causing the umpires to confer and reverse the call which ended the […]

As I’ve been watching our beloved Mets this season, going through cases of Pepto-Bismol and Alka-Seltzer, I’ve still kept an interest in seeing the team win, no matter how many games out of first we’ve been.  Recently, it’s gotten much tougher to get genuinely excited over wins, though having them spaced so far apart does […]

I’m not going to draw you into another one of my diatribes on how the Mets needed to go after Adam Dunn last off season. I wasted too many words on my pursuit of Adam Dunn in the off season, and countless more words expressing my disappointment when he ultimately signed with the Nationals. When […]

Last night, following his demotion to Triple A, Chicago White Sox third baseman Josh Fields revealed that he has requested that White Sox GM Kenny Williams attempt to trade him before Friday’s trade deadline.

We can beat a dead horse all day long about how bad and disappointing the 2009 Mets have become, and how we’re going to have to endure a few months of meaningless baseball now that all hope for the playoffs is basically lost.  So instead of beating the horse, I’m just going to point out […]
