MMO Fan Shot: Zen and the Misery of Being a Met Fan

An MMO Fan Shot by Andy Love of Fair and Unbalanced. Being a Met fan is not a choice.  As a recent study published in the New York Times confirmed, if your team wins a championship when you are between the ages of 8 and 12, you are far more likely to maintain a lifetime loyalty to that team.  […]

Bring Out The Tiger In Granderson

Tuesday night’s game really got me thinking about the future of Curtis Granderson. He played exactly how I would like to see him play moving forward. He had three hits, all of which were singles and also stole a base. The amount of pressure on Granderson’s shoulders goes beyond the $60 million dollar contract he […]

It was almost miraculous. I turned on WOR coming home from watching Darin Gorski throw a masterful two-hit, complete game in Binghamton and the reception was crystal clear. Learning Jacob deGrom had left the game with a 2-0 lead I was elated. First Rafael Montero‘s 10 strikeout performance and now deGrom, both pitching like the […]

Lucas Duda and Chris Young Have Been Clogging Up The Works

The Mets’ Mistake with Josh Satin

Ike Davis or Lucas Duda. Lucas Duda or Ike Davis. It took until mid-April for Sandy Alderson to finally make a decision that he was going with Lucas Duda at first base, and therefore, trading away Ike Davis. Since then, a day on Twitter can’t pass without some Mets fan tweeting the comparison numbers between […]
