It's OK For New York Mets To Embrace Their Past
On Saturday, 65 former New York Mets took the field at Citi Field in Queens.

The event was as much fun for the players as it was for the fans to see their heroes of yesteryear.

Fans of the blue & orange were starved for post-season play. One player almost singlehandedly carried New York to their first National League Championship title since the turn of the century and he was nice enough to join The Drive with Charlie & Dan on Tuesday.

With Daniel Murphy’s offensive outburst the Mets went the World Series after sweeping the Cubs where Murphy hit a Home Run in All four games! A year later the Mets couldn’t get passed the San Francisco Giants in the Wild Card game and this year the post season seems like a pipe dream. Mea...
