Banny’s Hammy

Brian Bannister‘s MRI yesterday showed a grade 1 hamstring straing. He is being listed as day-to-day. The DL hasn’t been ruled out but I expect him to miss a start and be replaced by Darren Oliver. If he goes on the DL then I think it’ll be either Jose Lima or John Maine. If I […]

Mets Win in 11

It was the kind of game I’ve talked about on MostlyMets many times before. A character builder. A game where one event happens that deflates you but instead of folding you rise to the occassion and show the opponent who’s boss.

I just found that Mets third baseman David Wright has a blog on the MLB site. Cool.

Gooden was sentenced to one year (and one day) in prison for violating the terms of his probation on a traffic […]

Anna Changes Her Mind

It seems the marriage of Anna Benson and ex-Met Kris Benson is not exactly “irretrievably broken”. Anna withdrew her divorce petition yesterday. My heart goes out to you, Kris.
