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.

It’s only a little over a month into the season, but as the Mets head into the one-quarter pole of 2016, it hasn’t all been peaches and cream for our hometown team. Matt Harvey has been a shell of the pitcher who returned in such indomitable style a season ago – this when all of […]
Our friends from the sports comedy website The Kicker, reached out to us with a new video they just developed that blended footage from the Thor and Avengers movies with highlights from Noah Syndergaard‘s pitching. It’s pretty cool, check it out.
The Mets have now won six straight series against the Indians, Phillies, Braves, Reds, Giants and the Braves – which they wrapped up on Wednesday with another impressive power display and a stellar performance by Steven Matz. The Mets are 13-3 in their last 16 games and have won 15 of their last 19 games […]
There’s something special in the air, my friends. You can feel it with every breathtaking extra-base hit off the bat of Michael Conforto. You can sense it with every swing and a miss on a knee-buckling Noah Syndergaard breaking ball. You can see it every time Neil Walker and Asdrubal Cabrera turn another improbable a […]
It was a historic night for Yoenis Cespedes and the New York Mets as they defeated the San Francisco Giants by a score of 13-1 at Citi Field during Friday’s series opener. Cespedes connected on his seventh home run of the season, a grand slam, in his second at-bat of the third inning as part […]
Wow… I’m not one of those bloggers who jumps up and down and says “Ooooh! Ooooh! I was right!” whenever something I strongly advocated for proves to be hugely successful. Mostly because I’m wrong just as often as I’m right. But even in my wildest dreams did I ever expect Neil Walker to burst out […]
After the New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves by a score of 6-3 on Friday night, they optioned right-hander Rafael Montero to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear a spot on the roster for Jacob deGrom. Montero, 25, appeared in just two games but got hit pretty hard, allowing three runs on five hits and a […]
Just a quick word… As we begin the final leg of our nine game road trip with a weekend set in Atlanta, there’s something I’ve been waning to get off my chest. I have to tip my cap to Terry Collins and his all-out, must-win strategy to close out the last homestand on a winning note. While bringing a […]
If you needed any further evidence that the 2014 Gold Glove version of Juan Lagares was alive and well, last night’s home run-robbing catch against the Phillies may provide all the proof you’ll need. Lagares showed his vintage defensive form, leaping to snare a long drive by Maikel Franco and robbing him of a three-run […]
Tough loss on Saturday. I say that because when the Mets hit three home runs, score five runs, and Matt Harvey is on the mound I expect the team to win. Especially when Harvey retired the first 13 Cleveland batters he faced. Unfortunately for the Mets they took a hard luck 7-5 loss to drop […]
Jacob deGrom has been placed on family medical emergency list related to an issue with his newborn son Jaxon, the team announced. According to Terry Collins, “there were complications” with the baby. He did not say if it was life-threatening, but added: “We are all praying and pulling for him.” The Mets right-hander could remain […]
