Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. This time honored saying, paraphrasing a quote from Emerson, speaks to the power of innovation. Be new, different and better and the world will love you. As Mets fans, we would be thrilled if the team achieved even two of those three things. Meatloaf and all, you know.

Carlos Torres Beating Himself Up After Rough 13th, Literally

As our own 72Metsfan recapped earlier today, the frustration of an underwhelming season was readily apparent Thursday evening during the Mets 13 inning loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. One of the players who lost his cool was Carlos Torres, who after a valiant extra-inning effort was simply out of gas by the thirteenth and the Brew-Crew took full advantage.
