Having had a great opportunity to attend Friday night’s exhibition game at Citi Field with the Mets taking on the Boston Red Sox, I felt obligated to give a fan’s first perspective on the new ballpark. My first impression as I arrived to the park via the 7 train was one of sadness. No longer are we greeted by our old friend Shea. Her remains are still there. You can see the familiar blue on pieces of rubble. They’ve […]
Ok Mets fans, time for a little fun! MetsMerized Times, New York, Friday, April 3, 2009: After only a few short hours of deliberations, the jury in the most crucial case of it’s kind found New York Mets shortstop, Jose Reyes, guilty of hitting the first Homerun for a Met at the new Citi Field. Transcripts of the trial were made public this morning and we were able to obtain a copy of them. Excerpts […]
The Florida Marlins enter 2009 as a young, cheap team looking to see how well they can do before they have to trade away some players. Again. The Marlins, who finished 84-77 the year prior, traded away 1B Mike Jacobs to the Kansas City Royals for set-up man Leo Nunez. The Marlins also traded Josh Willingham and Scott Olsen to the Washington Nationals for Emilio Bonifacio and two minor leaguers. Closer Kevin Gregg was dealt […]
The Mets outfield has some question marks going into the season – but it should have the depth to be solid all year. Other then Jeremy Reed replacing Endy Chavez, it will look similar to the end of the last year. Although it has some questions, the pieces fit together nicely to give it depth should anyone not live up to expectations. In left field, Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis figure to split time – […]
Dear Bud Selig, Jimmy Lee Solomon, and all other MLB Suits: Modern technology has come a long way in recent years, and with it cable television offers us better entertainment options such as On Demand and premium sports packages. Your MLB package is one such premium option. I grew up on Long Island a diehard Mets fan, and still am a diehard Mets fan. But I went through a few years of limited access […]
It’s almost that time of year again. Baseball season is upon us and you can feel it in the air. Last Spring all anyone can talk about was the collapse of 2007. Johan Santana came over but that only dimmed the talk of the collapse. The bullpen had question marks coming into the 2008 season and unfortunately toward the end of 2008 we got the answers we didn’t want from the pen, answers that came […]
Some stories you just can’t make up. But they are entertaining on a slow news day. During the Mets-Orioles rain delayed game yesterday, the Oriole announcers left after the 1st rain delay. So for the 8 innings afterward, there was no commentary. I guess we’re not the only ones growing tired waiting for Spring Training to finish. The official story is that the radio station told the announcers that they were free to go. An […]
The Mets infield is the strongest component of the team, and one of the best in baseball. The infield looks pretty much the same as last year, with the exception of the addition of Alex Cora and the departure of Damion Easley. It should be noted that Marlon Anderson and Fernando Tatis can play some infield in a pinch, but at this point in their careers they will mainly be used in the outfield. Carlos […]
When the Mets drafted David Wright in the supplemental round of the 2001 amateur draft (amazingly, AFTER drafting Aaron Heilman in the first round), they hoped they were investing in a future MVP. And since coming up to the big leagues in the summer of 2004, Wright has been steady, and in fact has been progressing forward just a bit each season. As far as voting for the NL MVP Award, Wright has finished 19th, […]
