Colon's mother passes away. A shame...I'm sure he's hurting. Easy to forget these guys are human beings, with lives and families outside of the game.
Wilpons are losers, Sandy is a loser, Terry is a loser. Wright has become one. That being said, there's a crop of young players who haven't been exposed to the Met way of doing things long enough to be indoctrinated into joining the loser's club, so the hope that the cycle will soon be broken lies with them.
Speaking of young arms...another terrific start for Logan Verrett in his last outing (8 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K), who has really been a different pitcher for a while now. Only 34 hits and 15 BB allowed in his last 48 IP, covering seven starts.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
