Found June 04, 2012 on Full Spectrum Baseball:
Where were you when the world stopped turning? A pitcher from the New York Mets actually pitched a no-hitter. That’s right. We can all stop holding our breath. (I was. Weren’t you?) After 8,019 games, the second longest active drought in baseball came to an end yesterday. The longest drought in baseball obviously still belongs to my favorite punching bag, the Chicago Cubs.

It was an 8 to 0 blowout of the St. Louis Cardinals. Quiet down, Yankees fans. We all know Santana threw 134 pitches (a career high) and walked 5 people. You can walk someone in a no-hitter. Check out Dave Righetti. Besides, when did you know of the Mets to do anything cleanly? See Bill Buckner. Last night at CitiField, a team best known for backing into its successes finally addressed that giant white elephant in the stadium. You...

First Place In Our Hearts, First Place In The NL East

As most of you know, for most of the offseason, I’ve taken an optimistic approach toward the Mets for this new season. In our 2012 MMO Predictions, I picked the Mets to win the second Wild Card in the National League. For comeback player of the year, my choice was Johan Santana. I’m on record as saying that by the end of this season, the Mets will have increased their attendance...

Michael Kay called it right Friday - (WB Mason might not agree) - but now the Mets know the secrets of juju

Friday night, while the Maglio Ordonezless Tigers were trying hard to lose, Michael Kay revealed to the YES Yankiverse news of something better in another world.

Video: David Letterman’s “Johan Santana’s Top Ten Pitches” was not funny

Can everyone just let the whole foul ball thing go already? Santana pitched incredibly, baseball is a game with a human element. and umpires make mistakes. Let it go already. It was an awesome game to watch, and Mets fans that watched this game will never forget it.


First off, hat tip to the for the title of this article, it was just too fitting not to use. Usually I watch the Mets play upstairs, in the bedroom.  I don’t mind it to be honest; it allots me some relaxation from my day. Even though my wife isn’t much of a baseball fan, she does tolerate my screaming at the television for reasons she has the slightest clue about...
