I'm a lifelong Mets fan who loves writing and talking about the Amazins' 24/7. From the Miracle in 1969 to the magic of 1986, and even the near misses in '73, '00 and '15, I've experienced it all - the highs and the lows. I started Mets Merized Online in 2005 to feed my addiction and interact with other passionate Met fans like you. Follow me on Twitter @metsmerized.

Wright Compares Equally To Chipper, But Is That Enough To Overcome Sandy’s Aversion To Longterm Deals?

In this Saturday edition of Rounding The Bases, some great links to several interesting Mets narratives with a quote from R.A. Dickey for good measure. Enjoy. An outfielder and it’s not close. Josh Thole struggled this year but I don’t think the Mets should bail on him quite yet; he’s still only 25, he’s a […]

On Wednesday I posted this comment R.A. Dickey made regarding his thoughts on signing an extension with the Mets after this season: “If I don’t see them pursuing David hard,” Dickey said, “I think it would be a message to everybody that they’re content to spend the next five or six years rebuilding this organization.

Yesterday, I emailed our MMO staff and asked them to describe this 2012 New York Mets season in just one word. Fifteen of them replied… I took those words and dropped them into a graphic that kind of explains how we felt about this season. Is this a pretty good reflection of how you saw […]
