It seems you just can’t watch the evening sports reports these days without hearing about how yet another Yankee “great” has landed himself on the disabled list. This week it was Mark Teixeira. The longtime Yankee first baseman will miss eight to ten weeks after an injury suffered while hitting balls off a tee during a workout for the World Baseball Classic. Teixeira will join Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez with longterm DL stints once the season […]
It usually is not a good sign when a name not recently in the news shows up on the “What’s Trending Now,’’ list when one logs onto the Internet. Dwight Gooden was there this morning and we can expect to see future postings as his latest issue with the law unravels. Gooden, long out of baseball but not forgotten by Mets fans, allegedly threatened his estranged wife, Monique, on Friday, when he should have been on […]
Yeah, it’s been difficult being a Mets fan these last few seasons. But that doesn’t mean we don’t love our team. Here are a few things I am thankful for as we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow: David Wright, Carlos Beltran and Johan Santana: Yes, Wright forgot how to hit home runs, and the other two guys missed a big chunk of 2009, but we still have a nice core of all-stars.

We knew the Dykstra who led off for the ’86 team and played center field with reckless abandon, the one who won Game 3 of the ’86 NLCS with a line drive over the right field wall off Astros’ closer Dave Smith and then was swallowed up at home plate […]
It was 22 years ago today on a lazy Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The Mets were battling the St. Louis Cardinals for the division title and needed to win the finale of their four-game series against the Cubs after being defeated in the first three games. They were in the throes of a six losses in eight games streak after cutting the Cardinals’ lead from 10½ to 3½ games. In those eight […]
