The Great American Pastime

An article by posted on March 10, 2008

Now that Spring Training is in "full bloom", I thought it would be fun to take a look at the differences between the game that our beloved Metsies play versus the other three major sports – football, basketball and hockey. "Tick-Tock, there is no clock!"  Baseball is the only sport not controlled by a time […]

Monday Mets Minutes

An article by posted on February 25, 2008

I can’t believe it.  The first televised Spring Training game is only 4 days away.  SNY will be televising from Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie at 1pm this coming Friday as the Mets take on the Cardinals..  And what a coincidence that Johann Santana will be making that start.  I am anxious to see […]

And Now For a Public Service Announcement…

An article by posted on February 19, 2008

One of the things I loved most about growing up in the 1980’s besides the Mets was the variety of different cartoons. Sandwiched in between school days and my nights watching Darryl and company were “GI Joe”,” M.A.S.K”, “Thundercats” and “He-Man”. As much as I loved each episode, I HATED the public service announcement(psa) at […]

King of Queens

An article by posted on February 1, 2008

January 29th, 2008. It’s a day that will forever be recognized as one of the most significant days in the history of the New York Mets franchise. It’s not often you can acquire a good starting pitcher, none the less, the best one of the 21st century. Johan Santana pending a contract extension is going […]

Laughingstocks to Leaders

An article by posted on January 31, 2008

Well, it finally happened. Johan Santana is (tentatively) a New York Met. I can’t speak for everyone but all of a sudden the grass is greener and the sky is bluer than it was a couple of days ago. All that stands in the way is a contract extension and all of the players passing […]

Monday Mets Minutes

An article by posted on January 21, 2008

After the disappointing end to the 2007 season, many Mets fans were forced to start thinking of the 2008 season even before the calendar changed. Morale is a big concern of mine. As a player, I would be thinking, hey, there were no major moves to change the make-up of this team, which means that […]

Hey Jimmy, We Still Think the Mets are the Team to Beat

An article by posted on January 14, 2008

According to a poll on Mets Hot Stove Live on SNY, 77% of viewers still believe the Mets are the team to beat. Personally, I believe the Mets do still have the best team. Top to bottom, the lineup is a force to be reckoned with. The pitching is another story. Was 2007 just a […]

Can Mets Make it Great in 2008?

An article by posted on January 7, 2008

With Spring Training just a few weeks away, it is finally time to put the past behind us and focus on the future. The 2007 season is six months of our lives that we will never get back. But the 2008 season is one through which we still have to live. So what do the Mets […]

Some Thoughts As We Close Out The Year

An article by posted on December 31, 2007

Happy (almost) New Year fellow Mets fans! I hope you all had a great Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa or a mix of all three. As usual, gifts were plentiful under the tree but sadly scarce at Shea stadium. Since fresh topics are about as rare as Christmas hams this time of year, I figured I’d just jot down […]

The Mets Are In It For The Now

An article by posted on December 13, 2007

With the Christmas holiday mere days away, the Mets remain without the frontline starting pitcher they so desperately require. Frustration is beginning to sink deep within all of the Amazin’s faithful followers. Without a defined ace toeing the rubber, or one who has the potential to become just that, the Mets outlook for 2008 is […]
