WIN SOME, LOSE SOME YOUR 2009 NY METS

By at 28 June, 2009, 12:42 pm

Pitching a one hitter against the Mets right now is like going bass fishing and catching a minnow. Sure you caught a fish but how much skill did it take to reel in that little fellow? Same with pitching to the Mets just don’t pitch to David Wright and throw fastballs down the middle to […]
