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’d like to offer a diversion: What will happen first in Mets’ history—a player leading the league in batting for a single season, or one of our pitchers throwing a no-hitter?

A pissed off Johan Santana shot back at rumors started by former Mets pitching coach Rick Peterson for saying Santana’s surgically repaired left knee is the reason. “How did he know that my knee hurts?” Santana said before the Mets played the Orioles. “That’s the question that I have. You guys tell me how did he […]

It’s been a steady decline in performance for Johan Santana recently. It’s a decline that began on May 16th and culminated in an all time low point in his career on Sunday against the Yankees. Santana’s velocity has now dropped to 89 MPH on his fastball, which makes his usual lethal changeup a lot less […]

I’ll make it short and sweet. First of all, no matter what anyone says, Johan did not show up Jerry Manuel. He is the ace -  a veteran - and a little rebuttal against your manager is okay once in a while. He has earned it. As long as it’s conducted professionally and repectfully, which it certainly was. Secondly, it was […]

Okay, I wasn’t at Citi Field last night, but I could feel the energy in the park all the way from New York to Nashville. It was a playoff game in June, and the Mets continued their dominance of Philly when they absolutely had to have a win against them.
