Mets head to World Series and for Mets fans, this is as personal as it gets

I kept thinking about what my reaction would be if the New York Mets beat the Chicago Cubs and went to the World Series. Would I jump up and down? Probably! Would I cry? After all, it has been 15 years since their last appearance. But to cry? I could not fathom it. Then I […]

Syndergaard Adds That Extra Ingredient To The Mets Pitching Staff

| October 20, 2015 | 0 Comments

Noah Syndergaard throws harder per fastball (97.1 MPH), on average, than any hurler in baseball. That’s a fact. He adds that to the Mets fine hard throwing staff of Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, and Steven Matz. They have youth, not a ton of experience, zero playoff experience before this season, yet “Thor” as he is […]

‘Happy Harvey Day’. A day the Dark Knight of Gotham went to the mound. It was a holiday for the fan base. It was the one day the New York Mets were almost always guaranteed the best pitching performance of the week. Matt Harvey became the lone light at the end of a very dark tunnel […]

O’Flaherty Can’t Be Allowed To Decide The Pennant Race For The Mets

In my mind you want your best players to decide the pennant race. Once upon a time the Mets season hinged on Kenny Rogers walking in the losing run in the 1999 NLCS against the hated Atlanta Braves. He pitched in 16 games for the Mets that year and he ended their season. Reliever Eric […]

Meaningful games in September has taken a new meaning for Mets fans this year. In years past it has meant broken promises. It has meant one more failed season.

Noah Syndergaard labored in his first few of innings of work against the Colorado Rockies Thursday (8-13) afternoon. The first inning he gave up two runs, both home runs. No arguing there were some control issues. My takeaway: despite the control issues, he got the win. There are times when you have to work through the […]

Saturday night at  Tropicana Field against the Rays was different. Maybe it was the seven game winning streak. It could’ve been the 2.5 game lead over the Washington Nationals […]
