Before I begin, I’d like to thank my colleague, Rob (Tie Dyed) for writing an exceptional piece on Tom Seaver and for inspiring me to write this blog. I’d like to consider it a companion piece to his blog. Thanks, Rob! June 15. It’s a date that many Mets fans will remember as the day the Franchise was traded to the Cincinnati Reds. Tom Seaver’s trade was the beginning of a dark time for the […]
WPIX has reported that Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez and Yankee big-mouthed bass Brian Bruney had to be separated during batting practice before the finale of the Subway Series. Rodriguez took exception with Bruney’s comments about his post-game celebrations and confronted him on the field. No word yet if the Three Fernandos or ‘Han the Man came in to separate the pitchers. Here are my two cents on this. Frankie Rodriguez is not the only pitcher […]
After the ending to last night’s game, the Mets needed someone to step up today. Perhaps it would take the collective efforts of more than one man to erase the bitter taste of the Friday Follies that took place in the ninth inning. Maybe three men would be needed. Which men could lead the team back into the win column? Enter the Three Amigos, or as I like to call them, the Three Fernandos! In […]
Back in January, the Mets were looking to acquire a big name pitcher to pair up with Johan Santana at the top of the rotation. Before missing out on Derek Lowe and settling for Oliver Perez, the Mets decided to shore up the back end of the rotation by signing Tim Redding to a one year deal worth $2.25 million. At the time, some fans did not understand why this signing took place and why […]
As the injuries have been piling up for the Mets over the past few weeks and the losses to teams like the Pirates and Nationals continue, Mets fans have come out in droves complaining about the team and their chances to make any kind of noise in the National League East. To those fans, I say RELAX! There’s still plenty of season left and many things to look forward to. Before you ask me what […]
For many years while the Atlanta Braves had a chokehold on the rest of the National League East, Turner Field was a veritable house of horrors for the New York Mets. Since it opened in 1997, the Mets are 34-66 at Turner Field and have had numerous crushing defeats, including some of the season-ending variety (see 1999 season). Last year, the Mets were 1-8 in Atlanta, easily their worst record against any team on the […]
As the calendar changes from May to June, the Mets find themselves a half game behind the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East. They have managed to stay at or near the top of the division despite the fact that the Mets have become the walking wounded. In 2006, it was the month of June that propelled the Mets into the runaway train that dominated the division. The Mets must find a way to […]
Tonight the Mets return to Citi Field, banged up and bruised, but still only a game and a half behind the first place Phillies. Their next 13 games are to be played exclusively against the Washington Nationals, Florida Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates. These opponents have a combined record of 53-79. The Mets must take advantage of this opportunity so that the next time the Phillies come to Citi Field on June 9, it’ll be them […]
Whenever the Mets and Red Sox square off in their rare interleague meetings, even a casual Mets fan can’t help but think of the 1986 World Series. Their seven-game showdown was one for the ages, culminating in the World Championship trophy being brought to Shea. During this weekend’s interleague series between the Mets and Sox, I’ve been reliving many cherished memories of that Fall Classic. Those memories have inspired me to write a poem about […]
