Howie Rose called it the worst regular season loss in franchise history and that none ever hurt this bad. He should know, he’s seen them all. I find it amazing that not one Mets player expressed outrage last night… Certainly, you could tell by the looks on their faces that they were shell-shocked, but not one […]

As evidenced by the jubilation when the bench cleared to congratulate Castillo for his game-winning IF hit. Did you happen to see Ollie embrace Castillo as if we’d just won it all?! This is exactly the kind of victory that you have to have to be competitive. If we cannot blow away the opposition, then […]

All else remains the same for the most part, including at second base where Luis Castillo returns for the second year of his four year deal.
