An article by posted on October 4, 2009 0 Comments

Like a wounded prizefighter hoping to get one last chance at the title, the Mets fought their way through a difficult 2009 season.  They kept getting pushed aside, beaten down and left for dead.  The season might have ended much earlier than Mets fans expected (like July), but at least the Mets gave the hearty […]

Even after an impressive 8-3 win over the Rockies, don’t expect me to gloat as much over a win or agonize as much over a loss as I once did throughout the season. Wins and losses don’t mean as much anymore given the Mets current circumstances. Instead, I look for outward signs of hope for next […]
