So, this time of year, everyone wants a prediction on the Mets season. How many games will they win? Will Ike Davis hit more homers? Can our new captain lead the team to a better record? Who will be the pitcher to watch now that R.A. Dickey is gone and Johan Santana is done? I am not a big fan of predictions probably because they never come true. Why waste your time guessing how the [...]

Really? Well, DUH!!! As long as everyone’s making predictions, [...]
Here is part one of our staff predictions for the 2009 season. Let us know what yours are! NL Biggest Bust Rob – Pamela Anderson…. oh, wait, that’s a different kind of big bust.

Mikey J – Francisco Rodriguez, NY Mets [...]
