Game # 8,020 Was 20/20. And What It Tells Us About The Second Half

It had taken 8020 games but it finally happened. When David Freese swung and missed at a 3-2 change-up from Johan Santana, the Mets accomplished something we wondered if we’d ever get to see: A No-Hitter by one of our own.

MAKING HI57ORY

First off, hat tip to the 7Line.com for the title of this article, it was just too fitting not to use. Usually I watch the Mets play upstairs, in the bedroom.  I don’t mind it to be honest; it allots me some relaxation from my day. Even though my wife isn’t much of a baseball […]

Asterisk-y Business

I’m not sure who is feeling better today, the Mets players or their fans? Sure, the Phillies didn’t have Howard or Utley, but they had Halladay and Lee and the Mets still swept them in Philadelphia! Before the Arizona series, I explained how I thought that series through the Toronto series were going to tell […]
