Happy New Year Mets fans!

December 31, 2011 // 0 Comments

The past five months have been great ones here at Up Along First. I’d like to thank my Twitter followers and all of the people who have viewed this blog. I have big plans for this website. I just started a Facebook page and I am ready to go for hopefully a great 2012. Be [...]

2011 looking back: positives and negatives

December 31, 2011 // 0 Comments

This year was hardly one to remember for Met fans. Wit the team strangled in debt and scandal, it was hard to find positives in anything regarding the orange and blue. First, I’ll start off with the top three negative storylines of 2011, just to get them out of the way: 3) Johan [...]
