Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it seems as though they’re here to stay. Oh I believe in yesterday. Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be. There’s a shadow hanging over me.

Remembering The Expos

An article by posted on July 22, 2009 0 Comments

I’m at the point where I’m tired of writing about how disappointing this 2009 Met season is. So for a change of pace today I would like to take a walk down memory lane and remember the Montreal Expos. The team the Washington Nationals were, before they became the Washington Nationals. When Major League Baseball […]

Nobody could have predicted the first half that the Mets have just completed, after an off season that fueled such high expectations. Sure there were some questions going into the season, but every team has questions, building a team is not an exact science. The Mets’ biggest off-season priority was to revamp the bullpen, and […]

The Mets go into tonight’s nationally broadcast game having already lost the season series to the Yankees. With Livan Hernandez taking on Chien-Ming Wang, we should have a chance. Key word: should. With the recent luck of this team, we will probably embarrass ourselves while making Wang look like Cy Young. The Mets are coasting […]

A Closer Look At David Wright

An article by posted on June 27, 2009 0 Comments

Our All-Star third baseman, David Wright, is in the middle of the weirdest offensive year of his life. I think it’s actually cause for worry. David Wright is batting .351 and he’s leading the NL in batting, and I won’t dispute that he’s been on base more than he ever has. However, I became very […]

With all the injuries to the 2009 Mets reminding me of the 1987 Mets, and with the St. Louis Cardinals in town for a big four game series, it got me thinking about the great Met-Cardinals rivalry of the mid 1980′s. To borrow a line from Keith Hernandez “You kids out there who are new […]

Mets fans should read the following article in today’s New York Times. Basically, Gary Matthews Sr. (“Sarge”), now a Phillies broadcaster, says he expects our most recent and disastrous series against the Phils will pretty much be the formula for the rest of the year, even though we now still have more wins than losses […]

There are Hall of Famers and then there are others who put up solid numbers for an entire career. One particular player compiled a 289 career BA and 2715 hits over 22 years. These numbers are not worthy of enshrinement in Cooperstown but he was a solid, consistent player. He was an All-Star and once […]
