When logging on to Twitter, you’ll often notice the most popular topics bandied about are a daily redundancy of Justin Bieber, a sporting event or athlete that is making news, and middle-schoolers telling you what not to do on a first date. However, every once in a while a hash tag like #MetsBandNames or #MetsYouveForgottenAbout will sneak into the “Trending Topics” column. When that happens, you can be sure it is not the work of [...]
Updated by Joe D. on 4/20 What a game it was for Lucas Duda last night in the Mets 7-1 win against the Nationals. Duda had his best game ever as a Met going 2-for-3 with hit two home runs and a walk . The hulking Mets left fielder is now batting .308 for the season with five home runs and eight RBI in 14 games. Duda’s patience has paid off as Adam Rossi said it would [...]
The Major League Baseball season is almost under way, and you know what that means: prediction time! Alas, for Mets fans it seems like most predictions are not so favorable for our loveable Amazin’s, but pay no mind to those Negative Nancy’s. I’m here to give you some good news: the Mets are a decent team. Am I being subjective? Maybe a little, but that doesn’t mean I am wrong. I can very confidently say [...]
On Sunday, in the top of the second inning of a Spring Training game against the Houston Astros, Jamie Hoffmann hit a solo home run to give the Mets a 1-0 lead. Hoffmann, who was starting the game in left field, is one of the handful of “throw up against a wall and hope it sticks” outfielders that the Mets have brought in to compete for a spot in the team’s outfield this season. Terry [...]
My grandfather raised me to be a Mets fan. Actually, “raised” is too tame of a word. My grandfather brainwashed me to become a Mets fan from the time I was a baby. If you go through old pictures of me, you are bound to find a few of toddler-Adam wearing a cute little Mets onesie or a silly over-sized Mets cap. I remember taking bus trips with my grandfather’s church down to Shea Stadium in the [...]
It’s that time of year again. Football is over and every Major League team is loading their trucks and heading to Arizona or Florida for Spring Training, which means it’s time to start preparing for fantasy baseball! Whether you will be taking part in a standard league, auction league, dynasty league, or even one of our own MMO Fantasy Baseball leagues, it is vital to have as much information you can on every player, from the perennial [...]
With Spring Training only a month away (Huzzah!), and little movement on the part of the Mets front office, it is looking more and more like the Mets will mix and match their outfield with a bunch of ragtag journeymen and hope for the best. Before I go any further, let me make it perfectly clear that this is clearly not an ideal situation and I am grasping at straws with this post. But I [...]
Update 3:20 PM In fact have been told #Angels aren/t 1 of teams currently trying to obtain Dickey. So guess we could stop Bourjos or Trumbo thoughts. #Mets — Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) December 13, 2012 Other teams asked about Mark Trumbo, and been told that he’s not available; the Angels have said they are keeping him. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) December 13, 2012 Well then… It should also be known that the Red Sox have [...]
On Monday all 30 GMs, along with a handful of players, agents, and other baseball folks, will all come together in R.A. Dickey’s hometown of Nashville, TN for the Winter Meetings. Personally, this is one of my favorite weeks in all of baseball. This is when the Hot Stove really gets cooking, so all you crabby Mets fans who keep complaining the front office isn’t doing anything can stop whining now (if the David Wright extension wasn’t [...]
