So now it's three times that the Mets have won the first two games of a series at Turner Field. Seeing as how we've switched off our vacuum cleaners, I do not believe it is too much to ask for a broom.
We're done sucking. We must start sweeping.
It isn't all for naught if we don't […]
Ninth inning, nobody out, Chipper Jones on first after David Wright kicked away a tough ground ball.
Gary — perfectly understandably, and properly — was talking about how this was the kind of game that historically had gotten away from the Mets at Turner Field.
“Fuck that ghost bullshit,” I said. “It's a new year, and this […]
The Devil who Went Down To Georgia and wound up laying that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet made out better in his trips there than we have. But we're not the devils in this. We've been lambs to the slaughter, particularly upon arrival.
We go down to Georgia, we go down in Georgia. […]
Phew. Or whew. Or new.
I'll definitely take new. There was too much old in the atmosphere, and I'm not talking about Ralph Kiner in the booth or Jimmy Carter in the stands or Julio Franco in a beautiful doff of the helmet. Them I like. Everything else I feared.

Twenty years, 43 Fridays. This is one of them.
On the 17th day, they rested.
After sweeping three straight series, vanquishing their archrivals, taking command of their division by five games, overshadowing all of baseball, tying the […]
Programming note: SNY's Mets Weekly is scheduled to feature Team FAFIF holding forth on any number of Mets issues this weekend. Tune in and see us there if you can't get enough of us here.
No, they didn't place cameras behind our respective bathroom mirrors while we muttered to ourselves after the 14-inning loss to San […]
Snigh is airing the Mets 11-inning, 9-7 win from yesterday as an SNY Encore today. And tonight, it's showing Game Two of the 1986 NLCS as a Mets Classic.
Semantics, semantics. This one will see light again if this network is any good. This one was a wonderful affair. Was it a classic?
If it wasn't, your […]
Beyond the fact that we survived Barry Bonds taking umbrage at uppity bloggers, endured a horrifying error by poor frazzled David Wright, thought Brian Bannister's leg might actually fall off, and then walked away realizing that hey, we took two of three from the Giants to finish the first leg of California Tour '06 at […]
