At nine games under .500, their .446 winning percentage places them 10th in the National League and 23rd in all of Major League Baseball. While a bottom 10 spot does […]

It’s Time for a New Voice.  Bring in Wally.

I don’t have anything against Terry Collins. He was asked to steer a rudderless ship for the past several seasons, knowing full well that he didn’t have a chance of winning and did the best with an inferior group of players. When he came on board prior to the 2011 season, he promised the fans […]

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.  […]

Francesa Rips Alderson, Says He’s Failed Miserably

Adjectives like these are not the kind of descriptors one generally associates with either Dillon Gee or Jon Niese, but since others along the lines of “intelligent,” “consistent,” and most significantly, “effective” can be accurately applied, perhaps the rest simply do not matter.
