It looks like the Yankees are set to make the loudest noise in Indianapolis since the 93rd running of the Indy 500 last May 24th. A rumored three team deal between the Tigers, Yankees and D’backs is now official according to several sources. Here is what it looks like: The Yankees get Curtis Granderson, the D’Backs get Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy, and the Tigers get Max Scherzer, Daniel Schlereth, Austin Jackson, and Phil Coke. [...]
There’s not much to be happy about this post season, especially where Mets fans are concerned. We have had to endure a World Series that was the culmination of our worst nightmares. No other matchup could have been worse for us than the one that is currently playing out in Citizens Bank Park. The grizzly matchup between the Yankees and Phillies has even spawned hundreds of Mets blogs advocating who we should root for as if [...]
And yet it seems that we’re in the same spot. October 17, 1999. Ten years ago last Saturday. Robin Ventura gave Mets fans one of the more unusual defining moments in team history. A “grand slam single” in the bottom of the 15th inning to break a tied game and send the Mets to Game 6 to face the Atlanta Braves one more time. As fate would have it, the Mets would fall short in [...]

In what turned out to be the one and only opportunity for the Mets to breakthrough and rough up C.C. Sabathia, the Mets blew a golden opportunity. Actually, let me clarify that and say Jerry Manuel blew a golden opportunity. In the fifth inning, after Gary Sheffield broke up Sabathia’s perfect game with a lead-off solo homerun, Sabathia was rattled and after singles by Fernando Tatis (who is finally hot again) and Nick Evans (will Murphy [...]
In what should be a very telling week for the Mets, they face off against their two fiercest rivalries; the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees. The Yankees have knocked out 88 homeruns which is ranked number two in all of baseball second only to the Texas Rangers who have one more at 89. The Phillies are ranked third in the majors with 78 which leads the National League. The Mets… well they rank 28th with [...]
