Ex-New York Mets Manager In a Race for Stamford Mayor
At one time Bobby Valentine was one of the brightest up and coming stars in the game of baseball. Injuries hampered those expectations and a new career in coaching and managing began. Valentine had great success as manager with the Texas Rangers for seven years, then with the New York Mets leading an unlikely group to the 2000 World Series against the cross-town rival New York Yankees. Now he is involved in a new kind of race and the final game is played on election day.
“Thor” Delights New York One Last Time?
What can you really say about 10 pitches in a meaningless game at the end of September between two teams that have long been out of the playoff picture? Actually, it was more captivating than I thought it would be. It had been two years since, Noah Syndergaard had thrown a pitch in a Major League, regular season game. The six foot six inch, strapping right hander, with flowing blonde hair and a Marvel Comic Book character nickname, was full of promise and had enormous expectations.

The Mets finished the road trip 1-6 and are now in third place, after starting Friday in first. Bad news? Yes. End of the season? Not so fast...
New York Mets Survive Wild Night In Cincinnati
One could try to pick a "turning point" in last night's crazy game between the New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds but it wouldn't be easy. Right from the start, the Mets scored 3 runs in the top of the first off of Reds starter Vladimir Gutierrez. Great start right?

New York Mets Escape from Pittsburgh with a Comeback Win
The New York Mets fell out of the starting gate, to use a horse racing term, to start the second half. After watching Edwin Diaz melt down last Sunday, Met fans got treated to an encore Saturday night against the very same, last place Pittsburgh Pirates.
