Found August 18, 2013 on Fox Sports:
The New York Mets are in the midst of another disappointing season, but they've experienced some success in interleague games. While hoping to get another strong outing from Dillon Gee, the visiting Mets will try to earn another win over an AL opponent in Monday's makeup game against the Minnesota Twins. The Mets (56-66), likely headed for a fifth straight losing season, suffered their fifth loss in seven games Sunday, 4-3 in San Diego. Gonzalez Germen was charged his first career blown save after allowing the tying run in the eighth inning, and Pedro Feliciano gave up Will Venable's walk-off homer in the ninth. "That's baseball. We could have gotten this one, but we lost," Feliciano told the team's official website. "We've just got to go out and be ready for tomorrow."

Thinking Of Trading Wilmer Flores Is Absurd

All of a sudden, I’ve been reading with head-scratching confusion how several bloggers are suggesting the New York Mets trade Wilmer Flores. Why? What good would it serve other than just giving away a prospect? What could they possibly get for him now?

Watching The B-Mets Clinch Their First Postseason In Nine Years

At 1:47 PM I left my house to begin the journey to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY, home of the Binghamton Mets. I arrived nearly two hours later with over two hours to spare until the gates opened.
