First off, I’d like to apologize for not being able to put this up last week. Lives outside baseball sometimes tend to clash with our lives that involve baseball. In any case, it wasn’t too bad of a bad of a week for the Mets. Taking two out of three from the Giants overshadowed the […]

On the one hand, I’m by no means convinced that the Mets are a legitimate playoff contender.  On the other hand they are much improved in virtually every facet of their game.  And that combined with relative parity in the National League certainly should keep the Mets in the Wild Card race as summer approaches.  […]
