And Here Comes Sean Gilmartin

I know, I know, only two weeks ago I said, “No way this guy makes the 25, he looks like roadkill out there.” But what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a lefty reliever who throws with no fear. So out of this pack of underwhelming relievers, Sandy’s words not mine, here comes Sean […]

Granderson Sets A Positive Tone, Believes Mets Can Take Back New York

I read yesterday that the Mets full squad was already in camp on Monday, two days before the mandatory reporting date. I don’t know what that means in the grand scheme of things, but I think it says a lot about the makeup of the team and their commitment. I really like the mix of […]
