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.

From The Orange Seats – WE’RE BAAAAAAACK!

An article by posted on June 26, 2007

Man, what difference a week makes. From losing six straight series, to winning four games in a row, it appears to me that the Mets are back. When I think of the Mets, I think of winning series, clutch hits, and a good combo of pitching and hitting. Well, they got that right now. If […]

Randolph Gave Me The Willies Last Night

An article by posted on June 26, 2007

I’m not looking to rag on Willie Randolph, but he really ticked me off for showing up David Wright and getting in his face when he got picked off first base Monday against the Cardinals. It was actually the first time this season that he got caught stealing, but when Wright went into the dugout, Randolph […]

An article by posted on June 25, 2007

I hate Mondays, but at least this one this one won’t be so bad because I have a Mets game to look forward to after work. And, might I add, that yesterday’s sweep was absolutely fantastic and that I loved the back page of Newsday this morning with the title "STRAIGHT A’S." ha ha As you all […]

Paul Lo Duca Bobblehead With Tossable Accessories

I just had to share this article with you after I read it this morning. Kristie Ackert over at the Daily News really made me laugh with the opening paragraph to her column today. Too bad there isn’t time to change the Paul Lo Duca bobble head doll that will be given away today at […]

Hey Mets Fans, Ya Gotta Have Faith!

An article by posted on June 17, 2007

Sometimes I find it so hard to see the positives in the Mets season, thus far. I spend so much time looking at and thinking about the negatives, that I forget how many times the Mets have overcome adversity in the past. I was thinking about last year when the Mets lost Pedro Martinez and […]

Beltran and Delgado Get Paid Like Superstars, But They Don’t Play Like Superstars

An article by posted on June 17, 2007

Mike Lupica severely lashed out at Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado in today’s Daily News. Here is just a little bit of what he had to say… Jose Reyes tried to be a star for his team, all the way to the top of the ninth, when he went up there righthanded against Mo Rivera […]

The Mets Gotta Fight, For Their Right, To Party!

An article by posted on June 16, 2007

These Mets don’t seem to have the fighting spirit… Sometimes you have to fight for what you really want… Sometimes, you have to do whatever it takes to get that R-E-S-P-E-C-T! That is the Mets biggest problem so far this season. They don’t have the stomach for a good old fashioned brawl. After the Dodgers […]

The Mets Are Down And Out In L.A.

An article by posted on June 14, 2007

Last night was just another game that was too difficult to watch, and in fact I was overcome with sleep for the last inning. The Mets lost to the Dodgers 9-1, and the game was as ugly as the score would indicate. Just as they had in their previous five contests, the Mets jumped out […]
