The post was intended to characterize the stark differences between internet savvy Mets fans and those who follow the team in more traditional ways. It was also my own personal reaction to the hate-fest that […]

During last night’s Mets broadcast, I thought the best part of a dismal game was when Gary, Keith and Ron found themselves stumbling for words when the results of the Toyota Text Poll was revealed. Here is a screen shot courtesy of Amazin Avenue. Keith Hernandez spoke out first and said “Hmmm”. Gary Cohen and Ron Darling were a little more […]

Strange ways, here we come… I believe that with the trade of Jeff Francoeur last night to the Texas Rangers, the Mets have essentially conceded the season.

What If Carlos Beltran Never Got Hurt?

An article by posted on August 22, 2010 0 Comments

I read a solid article entitled “What If Billy Wagner Never Got Hurt?” by Brian Joura of Mets 360. Brian not only contemplates what could have been in the second half of the 2008 season, but also what might have transpired if the Mets signed an outfielder instead of K-Rod later that offseason.  We have […]
