Every day between October 20, 2006, and October 8, 2015, had something in common. For those 3,276 consecutive days spanning exactly 468 weeks, the New York Mets did not play a postseason baseball game. The total is a little misleading since the vast majority of those days featured no postseason baseball games, but enough of […]
Tomorrow we’ll start
Nothing could be better than Matt Harvey
He’s the one
Just thinkin’ about
Clears away the Collin and the feelin’
That we’re done
When were stuck with McHugh
And Super 2 excuses
I imagine an arm
That’s not so useless
Tomorrow we’ll start
Hotter than Cholula
Says the gun
Matt Harvey! Matt Harvey!
I love ya, Matt Harvey!
You’re only a day away!

Please visit Hope Shines For Shannon and […]
I thought it was swell that the Mets told those of us who held rain checks from Saturday’s soggy yet official game against the Braves that we could come back to Citi Field and trade them in for shiny new tickets to Monday night’s game against the Nationals. And I had a half a mind […]
I know it, you know it, the players know it, the fans know it. I suspect Bud Selig knows it. The question is what he’s going to do about it.
Let’s get rid of some preliminaries: Before the pivotal call by first-base ump David Rackley, the Mets hadn’t played a particularly good game. Collin McHugh, so […]
“Pack it up. Pack it in.” Those are the words that usually play over the Citi Field loudspeakers when the Mets’ best player comes to bat. I’ve noticed the song before but was never quite moved to put the lyrics into proper context until Thursday, when I sat again through nine gnawing innings at the […]
