While perusing the comments of a recent article here on Mets Merized Online, an old but familiar name popped out at me…Dave Magadan. Most of us Mets fans vaguely remember him. “Mags” played with the Amazins’ from 1986 until 1993. He was never a great player, but was decent enough to finish 22nd in the MVP voting in 1990, hitting .328 with 6 homers, 72 RBI’s and playing a solid first base. Anyway, his name got [...]
Good evening MetsMerizers! I woke up this morning feeling pretty good and the first thing I see on SI.com is an article about how Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya are at odds over Duaner Sanchez being released. Granted, the article was taken from the NY post so I’m sure it’s a bit exaggerated. The Mets got tired of his arm to come around and it just didn’t happen. I’m sure he’ll latch on somewhere. Omar [...]
“There is a strange charm in the hope of a good legacy that wonderfully reduces the sorrow people otherwise may feel for the death of their relatives and friends” - Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra Legacy. Each one of us will leave one behind when we leave this world, whether it be good or bad. For some it may be philanthropy or achievement in sports, politics or journalism. For a great many people their most important legacy [...]
Okay. I realize the Shea remembrances and tributes have been done to death recently. It had finally come to a head this week with the last remnants of the old girl finally coming down. That being said, I’m going to beat the dead horse a little more. For 44 years our beloved Mets called Shea Stadium home. It doesn’t really seem like a long time when you think about it. I know to those of [...]
Yes it’s true. He told me himself, the legendary Captain America. This past week I took a vacation to Universal Studios in Florida. Being a Mets fan, I couldn’t go to Universal Studios and not represent the Mets properly. So I put on the new stadium jacket my cousin got me for Christmas and headed out. Plus it was unseasonably cold so it served as warmth too. Among all of the cool things to do [...]
I love Mets Merized Online. I especially enjoy the many different types of writers the site employs. From beat writers to number crunchers, we got them all. I find myself more prone to writing about personal experience and getting to the root of the love of what I consider the greatest game on earth. For me, baseball, and especially the Mets are a matter of the heart. Manny Ramirez seems to be the hot topic [...]
I love music. As I’m sure many of you can agree, there are poignant moments in our lives when we can not only remember what was happening, but also be able to put a song to it. Case in point, 1988 NLCS. Mets vs. Dodgers. The two teams traded punches back and forth until Game 7 when the Orel Hershiser led Dodgers shutout the Mets 6-0 and ended the Mets season. I can remember waking up [...]
Happy Monday Mets-fans! I feel pretty good for a Monday, seeing that the Mets won the last game of the twin bill against the Rangers. Trot Nixon did pretty well in his first appearance and Pedro made it through 6 innings without getting injured, so today should be a pretty good day. Like many Mets fans, there is a direct correlation between my daily happiness and the Mets performance the day or night before. As [...]
So here we are fellow Mets fans. Almost halfway through the month and the Mets are languishing in fourth place behind everybody but the Nats and 2 games under .500. Like me, I’m certain most of you envisioned better days than this for the Amazins’ in 2008. Omar took care of the Mets most glaring need in Johan Santana and still it was not enough. Perhaps the collapse will not be so easily removed from [...]
You’re going to have to forgive me this morning. As excited as I am about the Mets taking 3 out of 4 games from the Dodgers, I can’t help but feel nostalgic today. Like all of us here on this site, I have a passion for all things Mets. So much so, that even the littlest things can trigger memories and other thoughts about them. One of the things that I have always loved [...]
