Will The Mets Break Their Holding Pattern?

They get swept, they sweep. They get swept, they sweep.

It didn’t go well. The gopher was well-fed by the time Sunday afternoon came around and the Yankees smirked...

Would Youkilis to Mets make sense

By many accounts the Red Sox's have stepped up their efforts to trade Kevin Youkilis, once the heart and sole of Boston he now appears to be on the outside looking in at a clubhouse that may possibly be in total disarray.
