Like a wounded prizefighter hoping to get one last chance at the title, the Mets fought their way through a difficult 2009 season.  They kept getting pushed aside, beaten down and left for dead.  The season might have ended much earlier than Mets fans expected (like July), but at least the Mets gave the hearty […]

I was watching the Met game this past Saturday when Gary Cohen mentioned that it was legendary Met broadcaster Bob Murphy’s birthday. “Murph” would have been 85 years old.
