My Life Is A Mess
I have been
asked over the last many decades as to why I am a Mets fan. From the devastating World Series loss to the
Oakland A’s in 1973 when they had a three games to two lead going into game six…and
lost; a multitude of one hitters before Johan broke that trend last June 1st;
an incomprehensible play-off loss to the Dodgers in 1988 and Cardinals in 2006;

Noah Syndergaard was at Citi Field earlier this season for the Futures Game — where he looked very impressive in his short time on the mound. I was already in love with him as a prospect before I saw him on the mound at Citi Field — an actual glimpse into the future — and he made his return to Citi Field last night to receive a Sterling Award. If you missed the announcement...

For all the hell I gave you in the beginning of the year, Carlos Torres… I respect the work you’ve put in for this team in 2013. A depth signing turned into a guy who really put in some solid hours for the Mets, finishing the year with a 3.44 ERA in 86.1 innings across...
