Mets to wear sweet 1989 throwbacks tonight in San Diego

19…19…1989 Check it out! It’s Metro gone retro. The Padres are holding a throwback party, and as their costumes, the Mets are wearing road jerseys from the 1989 season. Unfortunately, from 1988 through 1992, the Mets wore boring Yankees-style “New … Continue reading

Mets experience awesomeness and then agony in Miami

Rooting for a so far successful but ultimately flawed team like the Mets can be very frustrating. On one hand, the team is 19-15 with the fifth-best winning percentage in the National League. On the other hand, only four teams … Continue reading

Mets amaze fans again, still lose in Miami 6-5

Not tonight, boss. That’s the attitude I had to take with tonight’s Mets loss. Just like during the sweep in Philly, New York treated the other team’s bullpen like a piñata and came back from a multi-run deficit. However, a … Continue reading
