Just last week my boss called me into his office and pointed out a mistake I had made. It was something stupid on my part. He gave me an FYI, we talked about it for a couple minutes and I went back to my desk. However, when I returned, I didn’t have to listen to […]

On October 19th, 2006 Adam Wainwright’s knee-buckling curve ball did more than strike out Carlos Beltran to end the NLCS and shatter the Mets hopes of going to the World Series.  Once Tim Welke called strike 3, opinions of Carlos in the minds of Met fans would be altered.  That one at-bat, that one pitch, may have set the groundwork for  Beltran becoming on of […]
