An article by posted on July 2, 2009 0 Comments

The last time the Mets were in Pittsburgh, I wrote a piece about PNC Park having similar effects to the Mets as Atlanta’s Turner Field once had, and to an effect, still has.  Over the past few years, PNC Park had become a house of horrors for the Mets.  They failed to clinch the division […]

If you’re a crazed Mets fan like me, you probably have that little sidebar gadget on your Vista desktop that shows you the updated NL East Standings.

What a game my friends! The Mets showed some fight, some heart, and some grit… Call it whatever you want, but they played some of the best baseball of the season in taking three games out of four against the St. Louis Cardinals.

I can’t believe what I just saw… I find it so hard to remain optimistic after watching the Mets lose in gut-wrenching fashion once again. With a huge victory only one out away, Luis Castillo drops the game-ending third out, allowing two Yankees runs to score and give them a walk-off victory in front of a packed […]

Johan Santana was absolutely brilliant last night… no not on the mound, but at the plate. His RBI double in the sixth inning proved to be the difference maker as the Mets topped the Phillies 6-5. On the mound it was a totally  different story as Santana served up four homers, but on this damp […]

Wow, K-Rod Feels Great and Wants To Close Today!

This morning I voiced my concerns about assuming that K-Rod could be done for weeks and even months. I said to leave the diagnosing to the professionals and cited my my own experiences with people who suffered back spasms like K-Rod and were back at work in a few days. I urged everyone to just be […]

I’ve read a half dozen articles today regarding Frankie Rodriguez, and while a couple of them are painting a gloom and doom scenario, I say leave the diagnosing to the professionals and keep hope alive. I know many a person who had severe back spasms that prevented them from walking or even […]

The unusual absence of our star closer had me concerned during the game. They spanned the bullpen with the cameras during the 9th inning as JJ Putz was on the mound, and Frankie was no where to be found. After the win, we waited for Jerry Manuel’s press conference because we knew someone would ask him […]
