Hurricane Sandy is churning its way up the Eastern seaboard. No, I’m not talking about Mets’ general manager Sandy Alderson. I’m talking about an actual meteorological event here. But now that I think of it, the Mets’ Sandy has a few things in common with Mother Nature’s Sandy. Let’s take a look at the tale of the tape between Hurricane Sandy and Sandy Alderson to see how similar they are. Hey, it beats talking about […]
Miraculous as Game 6 of the 1986 World Series was, all it did was force a seventh and deciding game. Do you remember seeing the replay of Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waving for the ball to stay fair in the 1975 World Series? That home run gave the Red Sox a thrilling 12-inning victory over the Cincinnati Reds in Game 6. That’s right. It happened in Game 6. Just like the Mets’ dramatic Game […]
Earlier today, on my own Mets site (Studious Metsimus), I published a recap of Game 7 of the 1986 World Series, which took place 26 years ago today. In the recap, I included Bob Murphy’s famous “the dream has come true” call from Jesse Orosco’s final pitch of the game. Well, Bob Murphy’s long-time partner in the broadcast booth is also celebrating a special anniversary today – the 90th anniversary of his birth. Ralph Kiner […]
Prior to the 2012 season, the Marlins changed their name, their uniforms, their home address and most notably, their locks on the team’s piggy banks. Or to be more accurate, they got rid of those locks altogether, spending money freely to sign, sign and sign some more big-name players. In addition to the well-known players they added to their roster, Miami also added a manager with a championship pedigree in Ozzie Guillen. Guillen was signed […]
In 2008, the Mets had one of their better drafts in recent years. That year they selected five players who have since made their major league debuts. With the 18th overall pick, the Mets took Ike Davis, who rewarded them with a 32 HR, 90 RBI campaign in 2012. They also selected Kirk Nieuwenhuis (3rd round), Josh Satin (6th round), Collin McHugh (18th round) and Chris Schwinden (22nd round). Nieuwenhuis and McHugh contributed to the […]
Keith Hernandez was the heart and soul of the 1980s Mets teams that went from languishing at the bottom of the National League East to winning two division titles and a World Series championship. The former first baseman was a leader both on and off the field, and was given the captain’s “C” to honor his leadership on the team. However, despite numerous pleas by Mets fans to retire his number 17, the Mets have […]
R.A. Dickey. Gio Gonzalez. Both pitchers are gunning for the Cy Young Award. Only one will get it (assuming we don’t have a tie a la the 1979 NL MVP vote that got Keith Hernandez a co-MVP Award). You can go to any site and find comparisons between the two. Anyone will tell you that Gonzalez leads Dickey by one win and that Dickey leads Gonzalez in innings pitched, strikeouts, ERA, WHIP, shutouts and complete […]
I am a David Wright fan. I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Mets’ third baseman since his first call-up to the big leagues in 2004. I’ve seen him produce some of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history and I’ve seen him make outstanding defensive plays. I’ve also seen him represent the Mets at the All-Star Game more often that not. I have never been a Chipper Jones fan. I’ve disliked him since before […]
On Saturday, R.A. Dickey pitched seven strong innings to defeat the Houston Astros by the final score of 3-1. In doing so, Dickey improved his record to 16-4. Despite the win, the Mets are still 11 games under .500 with a 58-69 mark. A few weeks ago on my Mets site (Studious Metsimus, for those who have never ventured there), I wrote a piece on R.A. Dickey accomplishing two things that had never been done […]
