So the Mets return home tonight after winning back-to-back games in Houston, and I have to say, it was in pretty impressive fashion. And those two games created a sort of dilemma for me when I was trying to choose this week’s Player of the Week, because the Mets actually put up hits, runs and […]

Yet again, the Mets lose to the Nationals sinking even further with no help in site. Winning their second game in a row against the Mets, Washington held New York to one run and 4 hits. Obviously it doesn’t matter who we play because our team is so bruised and battered that even the healthy […]

Mets First Half MVP Griffin – Gary Sheffield, most homers and has been a huge part of team Russell Z – Johan Santana Satish – David Wright – I was reluctant to choose Wright because it seemed as if he didn’t do much this year, but he does deserve some credit for his new-found ability […]

Alright, so I was going to say “I hope everyone’s having a good day”, but watching K-rod walk Mariano last night has sucked the life out of me. I wasn’t favoring the umpire’s strike zone last night, or the ESPN announcers…but that’s not what I’m writing about. I do hope everyone’s having a good day, […]
