Veteran’s Career Expo At Citi Field

Yesterday, I spent 13 hours at the VA Hospital going through a battery of tests and ending my late afternoon with a CT-Scan. Afterward, I was kind of hungry and thought I’d go and see if they had any food left at the cafeteria – eh, just sandwiches. I went with the chicken salad because […]

While New York Mets closer Bobby Parnell continues on the shelf with the prospect of surgery on his herniated disk, the question burns: What are he and the Mets waiting for? Perhaps he can rehab to where surgery isn’t needed, but those odds are getting long. Yes, yes, it is his body and nobody can force surgery […]

What I took notice of was the first item in the “short hops” section of the article. Rubin noted that while Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard are […]

Satin Homers, Niese Shines, But Blown Call Hands Mets 4-1 Loss To Braves

The Mets dropped a heartbreaker to the Braves, 4-1, in 10 innings on Wednesday afternoon after a blown call at first base gave Atlanta an extra out and Chris Johnson blasted a go-ahead three-run homer off reliever Greg Burke.
