The news was even better when Maine said that he experienced no pain the next day. “It’s a little tight but it’s […]

Thole and Misch Fuel Mets 8-3 Win Over Rockies

An article by posted on September 4, 2009 0 Comments

Even after an impressive 8-3 win over the Rockies, don’t expect me to gloat as much over a win or agonize as much over a loss as I once did throughout the season. Wins and losses don’t mean as much anymore given the Mets current circumstances. Instead, I look for outward signs of hope for next […]
