Not often can a manager turn around the fate of an entire franchise. This past offseason the New York Mets closed the door on the Terry Collins era and penciled in former Indians Pitching Coach, Mickey Callaway, as their new manager. And let me tell you, as a long suffering Mets fan, this was by far one of the best moves they’ve made in such a long time only rivaled by the Yoenis Cespedes trade that fueled an eventual World Series run. For practically the past 55 years, the Mets have been plagued by bad luck, injuries, and poor...Read More
Being a Mets fan ain’t fun. From constant heartbreaks to horrible stretches of injuries, and of course, their trademark horrendous luck when it comes to pretty much anything – we can’t catch a break.

The future of this league is sitting right in front of us with arguably more young talent than any other pro sports league in the world. It’s gonna be a really fun year, and right in time for Opening Day, I give you my 2nd Annual MLB Preview… Pretty bold,...Read More
An incredible era has ended. Longtime voice of the Dodgers- Vin Scully has hung up the mic at age 88, after 67 incredible years with the Dodgers, from their Brooklyn days at Ebbets Field, to the current Los Angeles days in Dodger Stadium.
