Very rarely is a team graced with a player of the stature and talent of Michael Joseph Piazza. Subsequently, very rarely does a fanbase and a city mutually bond with a player like Michael Joseph Piazza. Today as Piazza was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame, fans were able to share yet another special moment with the greatest offensive catcher of all time. “I look back now, in retrospect, and realize it was just […]
Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson joined the SNY telecast during tonight’s Mets vs. Brewers game and touched on a wide variety of topics with Gary, Keith and Ron including this season, the upcoming winter, Travis d’Arnaud among others. 2013 Season Alderson stated that he was “generally disappointed” with the season and is “not happy” but that this year is “something to build on”. Alderson says he wants the ”home record to improve substantially” next year, […]
As the 2013 season draws to a close for the New York Mets, what can be taken away from their fifth-straight losing season is the emergence of a number of young talents ranging from the pitching mound to the bullpen; from home plate, to centerfield. Met-Legend Edgardo Alfonzo was once an up-and-coming prospect himself, becoming a premiere bat and a defensive wonder during the Amazin’s turn-of-the-century stretch of October runs from 1999-2000. When I asked […]
Tonight Zack Wheeler takes on the team that drafted him for the second time this season. The first time the 23-year old faced the Giants, he was publicized as the “Robin” to the leading Cy-Young candidate and NL All-Star Game Starter Matt Harvey; perhaps unfairly so. Since that initial outing at AT&T against his former franchise; much has changed. Harvey and a pitching rubber between now and 2015 is in question, and Wheeler has taken […]
Longtime Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano has been with the Amazin’s for the majority of his major-league career, only taking a two-year, $8 million hiatus from Flushing courtesy of the New York Yankees. Even so, he’s never thrown a major league pitch for any team other than the Mets. Perpetual Pedro is back in orange and blue once again this season, a theme the 37-year old Puerto Rico-native looks to continue for the remainder of his […]
Mets reliever Tim Byrdak has been known for his antics. From Little Jerry the Chicken to the spring training Hulk Hogan, the 39-year old always finds a way to keep the mood light. Sunday at Citi Field, prior to the Amazin’s series finale and eventual 12th inning walk-off win, Byrdak was headed to the clubhouse after batting practice. As he walked down the right field line, a number of young autograph seekers beckoned his name. […]
Ailing Mets captain David Wright fielded grounders and took batting practice prior to yesterday’s series finale against the Marlins and looked solid on both sides of the diamond. The All-Star third baseman looked as good as ever defensively, moving both to his right and left with ease. As far as his batting, Wright mainly had a number of hard line drives as well as several fly balls that made it onto the warning track in […]
Carlos Torres and Daisuke Matsuzaka both pitched well in their respective starts of today’s doubleheader against the Marlins, however the Mets were only able to capitalize on one of their outings as they split the twin bill with Miami by a score of 0-3 and 3-1 respectively. Torres was on the mound for the first of the single-admission doubleheader and bounced back from his rough start in Washington with six solid innings in which the […]
The fires are long extinguished, the debris has been cleared from the streets, the rebuilding is well underway at Ground Zero, but the wounds are very much still open. 9/11 is a day that is still very heavy on the hearts of every New Yorker, and every American. One is hard pressed to find anyone in the Tri-State area that didn’t know someone, or knew someone that knew someone, who was in Lower Manhattan on the day […]
