An article by posted on June 8, 2010 0 Comments

Nine weeks into the season already? I can’t believe it myself. In random baseball news, Armando Galarraga threw only about the 390,000th non-perfect game in major league baseball, nothing special. John Maine is on the DL with a weak shoulder and now Perez because his knee hurts. Uh…no comment. At least he’s not taking up […]

I don’t get it. Jerry Manuel may be a bad manager, Oliver Perez may be an idiot, and Johan Santana may be really good, but nobody can explain to me why the Mets bite on the road and are dominant at home. The Mets had a wonderful shutout streak going that went to 35 IP, […]

Leave it to the Phillies to temper our expectations.  Admittedly, I’m an avid fan of the Mets and Giants, so my hatred of the Phillies and Eagles and Philadelphia fans in general is bordering on unhealthy.  But one thing is for sure….the Phillies are damn good, and they kind of woke up the Mets and […]

Big Pelf Is Coming Of Age Before Our Eyes
