* * * Metsmerized Fan Post * * * Last summer I was unemployed and wasted a great deal of time flipping channels in the early afternoon. One day, in late August, I found SNY airing a “Mets Classic” from 1991 against the Phillies. Howard Johnson was coming to the plate, men in scoring position, two outs, late innings. 1991 you’ll remember was one of HoJo’s better campaigns, where he hit 38 home runs, drove in [...]
* * * Metsmerized Fan Post * * * Long-time reader, first time poster (paraphrased from talk radio). I get most of my Mets news and opinion from Metsmerized without really contributing anything, but the recent Jeff Francoeur trade has me re-evaluating how I look at the game. I felt the need to weigh in. When Frenchy came to New York, I was like most of you. Sad to see Ryan Church exit, but excited that [...]
~ A METS MERIZED FAN POST ~ When you work in a large city such as New York, you run the risk of letting it becoming mundane, and sometimes forget how great it is, and what can happen on any given day. I work in the heart of Times Square, and there are times when it makes me, well frankly, grouchy. When I’ve put in a full day, I expect to walk out of the [...]
There is a big battle going on in the Mets blogosphere. Not only on blogs or Facebook or Twitter, but even bars and anywhere you’ll find Mets fans. Some fans just want their points heard and don’t care what anyone else has to say. Some like and appreciate the dialogue and are open to hearing other views. Some Met fans just like to complain, and even if the team had a 56-1 record, they would moan about that one loss. It’s [...]
All offseason we talked about what is best for our beloved Mets. What’s best as far as free agency. What’s best as far as who is managing. What’s best from the GM position. What’s best at each position. And even what’s best from ownership. We all have had our very candid and pointed opinions and we share them like no other fan in the league does. Baseball fans are some of the most knowledgeable and [...]
For better or worse the Mets 2010 roster is pretty much set. I remain cautiously optimistic and am looking forward to the season. I so much want CitiField to be abuzz with enthusiasm this year. In that respect, the 8th inning sing-a-long can go a long way towards energizing the crowd on a hot summer’s night, and spur the Mets on to late inning comebacks. So here goes. I’m a big fan of the 8th [...]
New York Mets acquire OF/1B Willie Mays for P Charlie Williams I was just a lil’ boy when the New York Mets acquired Willie Mays from the San Francisco Giants to bring him back to New York for the end of his majestic, Hall of Fame career. “Willie Mays was the best all around center fielder I ever saw play the game. Period. End of story.” That’s what my 73 year old father told me recently as [...]
I love New York. No, really, I mean it – I looooove New York. Born in Flushing just minutes from Shea, it was inevitable that I would grow up to be a Mets fan. Dad was a die-hard fan; so was Mom. Both were originally Brooklyn Dodgers fans, growing up in Brooklyn. So it was no wonder why they rooted for the team that brought National League baseball back to New York. Taking the blue from [...]
OK. So the Mets didn’t sweep the Yanks. They didn’t even take the series. But they didn’t get swept either. In fact, the season series is tied at three and the next time these two teams could face each other would be the World Series. Let me sum up this past weekend for those of you who couldn’t bare to watch for yourselves…our offense was mediocre. Our pitching was lacking. And our defense was, if nothing else, questionable. Even [...]

On Tuesday I attended my second game of the year. Baseball has been part of our lives of my family and sitting in the Mezzanine out in right field, I was reminded why I love this pastime and [...]
