There are many question marks surrounding the Mets’ offense this season. Why isn’t Jose Reyes hitting? Why is David Wright striking out so much? Why can’t Jason Bay get a clutch hit? Where did Jeff Francoeur’s bat disappear to? Why isn’t Luis Castillo on crutches yet? It’s enough to make a Mets fan go crazy […]

First off, I’d like to apologize for not being able to put this up last week. Lives outside baseball sometimes tend to clash with our lives that involve baseball. In any case, it wasn’t too bad of a bad of a week for the Mets. Taking two out of three from the Giants overshadowed the […]

Maybe I should move more often.  My family moved from Tennessee to Wisconsin two weeks ago, and about that time the Mets were slipping deeper and deeper into a funk, starting out with a 2-6 record.  It looked like Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya might not last until the end of April with the team.
