I’ll be the first to say that a Yankees-Phillies World Series is the ultimate slap in the face to any Mets fan. Our two most hated teams going head-to-head in a best of seven series for the title of baseball’s best. But instead of whining and complaining that there’s no one to root for this […]

An article by posted on October 21, 2009 0 Comments

The World Series Ed Leyro wrote about yesterday is likely to come to fruition—Yankees/Phillies, unless the Dodgers and/or Angels sweep the remaining games.  And the way New York and Philly are playing, that’s about as likely as snow in the Caribbean.  So we’re going to have to face facts here.  Yes, a Yankees/Phillies series is […]

Lenny Dykstra is a shell of his former self, at least to those of us Mets fans who grew up in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s.  We knew the Dykstra who led off for the ’86 team and played center field with reckless abandon, the one who won Game 3 of the ’86 NLCS with a […]

I have to hand it to the New York Mets for doing an excellent job of putting that 1969 Mets tribute together. It was so touching to see all those great Mets of the past, together again for one last time. Unfortunately, many of those who played for the Amazin’s in that magical season have […]

In the 1977 classic film “Oh, God,” Jerry Landers (John Denver) is speaking with God, played by George Burns. Landers asks God about miracles and He replies, “The last miracle I did was the 69 Mets. Before that you have to go back to The Red Sea.” There has been a lot of talk this […]
