This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: A Soundtrack For Last Night’s Mets Loss Edition

Last nights game between the Mets and the Cleveland  Indians was stomach churning bad. That first inning pitched by Jon Niese made me wish that Shaun Marcum was still with the team (well not really).

Perhaps it’s time to rethink exactly how knowledgeable the Mets are when it comes to pitching. In one of the first scenes in the classic Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella […]

Featured Post: The Risk In Letting Ike Davis Go

Updated Post Ike Davis went 1-for-3 with a long home run of Ian Kennedy last night as the Mets beat the Padres 5-2 at Petco Park.
