A Little Mets In The Tropics

I spent last week on Lanai, a beautiful and remote Hawaiian Island. Sports, for the most part, was far from my mind. To say that is a rarity for me, is a major understatement.

Why Mets Boycotts Are Idiotic And Pointless

My dad and I have never gone to a Mets game together before. Sure we’ve watched countless games on TV, been to see the Ducks and the Islanders, went to the Giants ticker-tape parade together, and have even caught a few Orioles games when we visit family in Maryland. But never have we both made […]

Johan Santana and the Mets Have Reached a Crossroad

Terry Collins told Jorge Castillo of the Star Ledger that Johan Santana is on target to start his first spring training game on March 10 or 11. That would give him about five starts, assuming there are no other setbacks, before Opening Day. Frankly, I don’t care if he’s starting Opening Day. I just want […]
