MARLBORO, NY– Lacking pomp and circumstance, let’s get to today’s sports topics of discussion… “Why does God hate the Mets?“ the New York Post front page recently asked.  The answer is a layup. It’s as easy as connecting the dots leading from the Wilpons to Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff. Karma is indeed a bitch with yet another […]

Precipice – a very steep rock face or cliff, typically a tall one.  Roman adage – “add insult to injury.”  DENVER, CO – I serve you all with this word, as this is the most fitting palabra that I can think of for the Mets season. I server you with this adage as its origin […]

MARLBORO, NY – It was on this date in 1915 that a German submarine sank the Lusitania and thrust the U.S. of A. into World War I. Present day sports has me reporting in a similarly negative manner on the New York Mets, New York Yankees and the NHL Playoffs. Abandon ship! Friday night’s comeback […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – If you regularly pinch-hit enough are you a pinch-hitter? That’s my tree-falling-with-nobody-around question. Mull that over while I dive into today’s piece. This site used to be a Mets fan site. It was what made Different Matt, well… Different! It is Meet The Matts – like Meet The Mets, right?! I say […]

Woes, Not Wins For Mets? Wheeler, Walker and Wright Are Wrong.

MARLBORO, NY – Hope springs eternal… but I’m already here to rain on the Mets parade before the season starts. There are some red flags as we speak and little has been done again by Mets management to address the infield and, of all things, the pitching. “W’ stands for wins in baseball but for […]

NEW YORK, NY –  Some things just stick in the craw. You can try ignoring them but eventually they need to be talked about, confronted and hopefully… resolved.

HAPPY NOTE: Regular Tuesday Titan, Big Ben Whitney is all jelly today as he and the Missus welcomed twin baby girls on Sunday night.

ENGLISHTOWN, NJ – I’m not really sure of the marketing principle behind booking Rock ‘n Roll has-beens for post-game concerts, but that’s what happened at CitiField AFTER the AAA Padres vs Mets debacle.

FLUSHING, NY– I received a directive from Short Matt about today’s topics and his verbatim text is the column’s headline. I agree with none of it. The boss has clearly taken another blow to the head so we’ll need to forgive his knee-jerk reaction to the Mets problems. Outside of the other night when he […]
