Don’t Give Up

Football wisdom: “Anything that can be done in the first half can be undone in the second half.”

Davis Hiding Injury Irksome

I root for Ike Davis. Like any other member of the Mets I want him to succeed. But then the New York Post breaks a story about how Davis hid an injury and it upsets me. The injury, to his oblique, occurred while he was struggling early last season and was on the verge of […]

Fun Again… At Least For Two Nights

I haven’t posted much this season because there really hasn’t been much to write about. Sure, if I were a professional writer I’d find what to write about but I do this for fun and not for work. But after the last two nights there is finally something fun to write about. Back to back […]

Enjoy It While It Lasts

The Mets are a mess and it’s my fault. This year I have watched 4 Mets games live (as opposed to watching on DVR or just highlights on various sportscasts). Three of those games are the Mets 3 losses so far on the season. In the fourth game the Mets were losing while I watched […]

This Date in Mets History

This date in Mets history according to the Associated Press (via Yahoo Sports: 2006—New York Mets center fielder Carlos Beltran tied a major league record with his third grand slam of the month in a 9-6 victory over Atlanta. Beltran became the ninth player in major league history to hit three grand slams in a […]

Tonight’s Lineup

Another odd choice by Jerry Manuel in tonight’s lineup. Fernando Tatis will be batting second and playing second base. With Luis Castillo still batting well I have to wonder why he’s not in that slot of the lineup. # Name Position 7 Jose Reyes SS 17 Fernando Tatis 2B 15 Carlos Beltran CF 21 Carlos […]

Why Aren’t Mets Commercials This Good?
