I was thinking last night as the Mets had a comfortable three-run lead, that maybe, just maybe they have turned a corner and that I can write something positive today. But in the back of my mind I was thinking that a 3-run lead with a (let’s face it) still-shaky bullpen was not going to hold up against the Marlins.

I’m finding some interesting reads this morning from some who are concerned about David Wright’s lack of production this month. Newsday narrows it down for us… After hitting .342 (13-for-38) in his first 10 games, Wright is hitting .188 (6-for-32) in his last eight to drop his average to .271. He has only six RBIs, […]

Not too long ago, Mets fans were second-guessing the decision to sign Luis Castillo to such a long-term deal.

Another 13 runners left on base, was the dark side to an otherwise satisfying win Friday night against the Brewers.
