It’s official. Dillon Gee is my new favorite pitcher on the New York Mets. Apparently, last night, his slider wasn’t working during warm ups so he started working on a cutter. Not bullpen session warm ups earlier this week, his actual warmup time before the game. He then used his cutter in the game.
Are you kidding me? At this rate, I expect his cutter to be Mariano Rivera like by next week. This man is as cool as a cucumber.

Guess what suckers? I won’t pay to read your full articles. Never. Never ever ever ever. You shouldn’t either. Don’t create a demand to pay for something that should be free. Unless of course Midwestropolitan goes down this route. A guy’s gotta eat, ya know?

Don’t Worry R.A., There Is Plenty Of Love For You
Tonight, our one footed warrior, R.A. Dickey takes the mound to try to clinch a series win against the Braves. I wonder how many other pitcher’s would pitch through something like this? Hell, he will probably ride his bike to the ballpark tonight just to get used to the pain.
Wild Card Update
The Amazin’s are still hanging around in the Wild Card race. There is definitely a large hill to climb but I’m not throwing in the towel just yet. It’s only June.
