Road Trip

Sorry I didn't post earlier today. I went to New York City to be interviewed by the Mets Weekly people. It was an interesting and somewhat humbling experience. Funny, but when someone sticks a camera in your face your I.Q. can drop a few points really quick. In any case,...

The Year of the Calf

I'm not sure who's responsible for all these calf injuries to Mets pitchers, but someone's head is going to have to roll here. After Pedro had problems with both calves -- and, incidentally, that right shoulder thing, also -- now El Duque is questionable for tomorrow's start after injuring his...

Perez on the Playoff Roster?

I was watching a little of the Marlins-Phillies game this afternoon and thinking ahead to the playoffs.
