What A View From the Top!

An article by posted on August 15, 2008

After doing what was expected necessary, our New York Metropolitans find themselves sitting atop the NL East. Clutch hitting, a stellar rotation, and a bullpen that saves games (for a change) all played pivotal roles this week. It also helped that Manny was being Manny in L.A. instead of Boston. And I would also like […]
