It’s now apparent that the Mets do have what it takes to make a run for the division. We find ourselves in this position because it turns out the Mets were not as bad as many of the experts had projected, and the NL East in general had a lot more parity at the top […]

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.

While there’s no need to reiterate the botched call by first base umpire Jim Joyce in yesterday’s should-have-been perfect game by Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga, I will.  One out away from a pitcher’s ultimate personal feat, Galarraga allowed an infield hit to Indians short stop Jason Donald.  A scene that will run through the minds […]
