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 […]

As I had speculated last week (and hoped for), Zack Wheeler has indeed turned a corner and is making his presence felt in the National League with each passing start. Wheeler was on top of his game against the Cubs, limiting them to just two hits over 6.2 scoreless innings, while walking a pair and striking […]

Double-D Getting Opportunity To Show His Stuff

Fear And Loathing In The Eastern League

No, I didn’t fall into a hole on my way back from the B-Mets series in New Britain last weekend. Although driving all those miles just to see them drop a three game series to a second division club, was a tad deflating. Friday night – a 4-0 loss with not much happening for the […]
