New York Mets: Fact or Fiction

Lucas Duda finished 22nd in the NL MVP voting last year. What can he do for an encore? The New York Mets are off to a hot start, as they have won their last six games.

Ugh, what a terrible season. I’ve been a Miami Heat fan since I was in my mother’s womb and I have to say, this may have been the most depressing season in Miami’s history. Yes, more depressing than the first few years as an expansion franchise. More depressing than the constant first round playoff exits in the late 90s and early 2000s. This season has been even more depressing...
