I am one of the regulars on a weekly Kult of Mets Personalities podcast, and if you listened to it, you would know that I am the resident Mike “Big Pelf” Pelfrey homer. I root for him probably harder than any other Met. I don’t know why either, but I feel a personal connection to Big Pelf. It’s mostly because I saw him pitch in his major league debut in 2006. I always felt he [...]
The Mets are joining forces with the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) on Saturday, May 28, for Brain Tumor Awareness Night. If you were thinking of attending a Mets vs Phillies game, why not this one? If you purchase tickets through the NBTS link, a portion of the sales go to the NBTS. Pitch in for a good cause and rally the Mets fans together for Brain Tumor Awareness!
At Aerys Sports, there is a fine conglomerate of baseball bloggers, headed up and written by women. Their resident Mets blogger, Kelly Lake who is the author of “The Curious Case of Sidd Finch,” raised an interesting question about the Mets a few days ago. She asked: When will the players be held accountable? It’s an incredibly fair question, and one I wanted to address myself. Lake’s raised a point about the blame game. Media [...]
So now that the Mets have parted ways with both Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez, there are a variety of opinions on how this soap opera has panned out. Should they have stayed on because they were owed a king’s ransom, the Mets would essentially be paying them either way, right? Or does this truly show that the new world order on the Mets front office team has an agenda, one that says, if you [...]
Too big to fail. It’s the name of a book, a movie in production that’s based on said book, which in and of itself was based on the excusing of businesses that directly correlate to the success of the economy. The idea is that by preventing some businesses from failing and allowing others to do so by either being portioned off in a “fire sale” or just by simply going away will not only make [...]
Giving us shades of Bob Ross, J.S. Mill along with a bit of Tom Candiotti thrown in there, R.A. Dickey is almost a contradictory baseball player. He is humble, shy and down-to-earth but is well-spoken and doesn’t mince words in his interviews; he processes his game cerebrally but is not a head case on the mound; he is a Mets pitcher who is getting paid his worth…well, what we can say about that except [...]
Blogger’s Note: I have been thinking about writing a piece about this for awhile. It’s been a tough one to get all out on paper, so I have decided to break this into two parts: one today, one tomorrow. In the meantime, here is Part One of “One Way or Another.” ~ Coop If you listen to one part of the Mets fan base, this offseason is a bust and Sandy Alderson is a “hack.” [...]
When the New Year kicked in, talk of the Mets turned from looking towards the future to taking a not-so-fond trip down Memory Lane regarding one of the most disliked and controversial characters in Mets history. Nope, I’m not talking about Richie Hebner. I’m talking about Bobby Bonilla. While there is much to be said about the Mets ownership lack of baseball acumen, and even in recent years being linked to a scandalous international Ponzi [...]
So riddle me this, Batman: how does the third highest payroll in the National League translate to “The Mets don’t spend any money?” Fanbases from all over are a reactionary bunch. I think it’s more pronounced in New York City, however, where high payrolls are the norm and superstars come in to sell jerseys and get people to come to games. Then they retire, and we look to get our fill by seeing who will [...]
