12 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – Full Disclosure: Today’s post is not about the Best Pitching Staff in Baseball – which is undoubtedly that of the New York Mets.  Instead, it’s about the MTM Rotation of Pundits, and we’d be more remiss than usual if we didn’t take a moment out to thank our very talented and […]

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – A few things that happened this week deserve attention: the New York Yankees getting back to the business of out-doing the cross-town New York Mets at the Winter Meetings and Kobe Bryant benching Kobe Bryant.

43 Comments

KANSAS CITY, MO – The eternal optimists that we are, we’d normally be focusing on how it took the Missouri Royals in Mets Blue 14 innings and 40,000+ screaming fans to get a home win against a Mets team that played like Jerry Lewis on roller-skates.

Irish Mets Vanquish Dodgers: Cubs Fáilte

6 Comments

GALWAY CITY, IRELAND – Karma, as we suggested in Wednesday’s piece, had little to do with last night’s earth-quaking New York Mets win over the Brooklyn Dodgers of Los Angeles at Endy Chavez Ravine.
