Yes here it is….another favorite Mets moments list. This has been done to death…..but I feel it’s mandatory to read at least one every month to remind all of us why we love our NY Metropolitans. Also, I will make this one just a tiny bit different. This will consist of some very personal experiences at actual games I attended. Here we go: July 25, 1987 – My first game at Shea, ever. My dad […]
So here we are Met Nation awaiting another season to begin and hoping that our team comes together to replace the pain and hurt of the three previous seasons. When Spring Training began, the Met lineup appeared set; an injury to Carlos Beltran’s knee and Jose Reyes’ thyroid condition had dampened the optimism of even casual fans. But with Reyes’ return, and the awareness that Mr. Beltran may return sooner than the naysayers and pessimistic […]
Tom Hanks’ Jimmy Dugan character says, “There’s no crying in baseball”. But many today will also say, ”There’s no crying broke in baseball.” Fans, sports bloggers, and sports enthusiasts nationwide spend big money on season tickets, concessions, memorabilia, periodicals, books, and all kinds of financial trade-offs to show their appreciation for their team. WIth all the money flowing through the organizations, I could see why it’s difficult to believe that the team you love and adore […]
Folks, I don’t live in New York anymore, and haven’t since 1992. Sure, I can get all my Mets news online and I can watch and listen to games online or on cable. But nothing beats living there–the talk, the camaraderie, the print newspapers that you can read with two hands and two eyes (unless you’re Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba). So sometimes I feel disconnected and rely on friends or my dad to fill […]
There has been much talk of realignment over the past couple months. The ideas have ranged from very few to very radical changes. I am more progressive than most in my thinking about changes to baseball – but any change in baseball comes under a lot of scrutiny. The scrutiny is not without cause – baseball has so much history behind it, and some fans are afraid that changes will ruin what they love. Although […]
Welcome to Club Carter, Mets fans. Where the drinks are free and you get all the Kool-aid you can drink. I am still advocating that Carter makes the team. Whether he is given the starting job or a bench spot is not as clear cut in my mind, but I definitely think he should be on this team. Not many give credence to his spring stats, but his brand of baseball makes it hard to […]
Depth… Depth… Depth… How deep are the Mets? It’s a thought that sometimes falls through the cracks. The Mets received some great news about Reyes’ and his thyroid issues so he should be getting back to baseball very soon once he’s in baseball shape. This situation, although disaster was averted, opened the door to many questions about what would happen if guys like Reyes, Wright, and even Johan were injured for an undetermined period. Do we have the protection and […]
We now return you to ‘As The World Turns‘… That should be what each return from a commercial on SNY and WPIX says this exhibition season… I am becoming more concerned as the Mets continue to have more questions than answers each day spring training continues. What drama… We should be getting closer to making cuts. Instead the questions are becoming more pronounced each day. At first base, if Daniel Murphy is starting, he’d better abandoned that more upright […]
Mets fans are not happy right now. There are so many question marks. No one can even agree on who deserves to go north at the end of spring training. As far as uncertainty goes, the starting pitching is the most suspect. The performance of the Mets #2, #3, and #4 starters are not exactly helping raise fan confidence levels. Pelfrey, Perez, and Maine have each been less than stellar. Even Johan Santana has been […]
