Magnificient Niese Pitched like Dorian Gray’s face ‘Pen pitched like portrait
The good news is, Jose Reyes is back! (Possibly for a limited engagement, but still.) He’ll be active Thursday. The bad news is, Taylor Buchholz, arguably the team’s best non-K-Rod reliever, is on the DL with a fatigued shoulder.
Alert friend of the blog Jane Sherwood took this picture of a dog decked out in Mets attire. Clearly, this is a responsible dog- note that it is in charge of a stuffed monkey. Jane did not find out if the dog thought the Mets should be buyers or sellers… Read More →

Doomsayer Mets fans earn a rebuke As Dickey shows 2010 was no fluke Davis and Harris help Javy to tank Maybe he’s finished, not just as a Yank If the new season is set to hold thrills Mets can prove it with next three versus Phils
Considering how long it felt since the last time the Mets won a game-the penultimate game of the 2010 season, for those keeping score at home- one can only imagine how the purgatory between victories felt to Terry Collins. The last time he won as a manager was August 23,... Read More →
