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 and '00, 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.

Here are the results of last weeks poll question which asked the question: Do You Want Guillermo Mota On The Post Season Roster? I’m sure it would surprise nobody that an overwhelming 58% of you said NO WAY. I wonder if any of you voted again after last nights debacle? Only 9% of you said […]

Martinez Is Doing It The Pedro Way

An article by posted on August 28, 2007

It’s been a long and bumpy ride all season long for the Mets’ long list of would-be number five starters.
