As we all wonder who’s dining room table Omar Minaya will attempt to sit at on Thursday as he makes his plea for that player to come to Citi Field, let’s take a look back at the woeful 2009 season. If you remember, back in early September we compiled a list of awards that we plan on handing out after every Mets season. Personally, I think it’s a lot easier to give out awards when […]
Everybody loves the winter baseball season. It’s the time when we all become experts. We all get to spend X amount of imaginary dollars, and if some of our moves happen, we get to call into AM radio and say “I said all along the Mets should get _____.” (By the way if they sign Nick Johnson, I’m re-posting my blog about that!) It’s never too early to start writing your Christmas Wish List right? […]
I logged on today to find an article by a fellow blogger about how the Mets should focus on Brandon Phillips for 2010. I immediately slipped into a state of shock, which lead to an unconscious state, and now here I am. Following 2008, everybody was down on Luis Castillo. Castillo had his worst offensive season in his career in 2008 following the signing of a long-term deal in 2007. After his unbelievably bad 2008, […]
This year marked the end of my rivalry with “true” Yankees fans. Personally, I know there are many Mets fans that simply cannot accept another Yankees World Series Championship, but I can. This year, the NY Yankees defeated the NY Mets division rival in the World Series, yet so many Mets fans were found trying to come up with logical reasons to root for the Phillies. Let me be clear, I hate the Yankees. If […]
To those of you who for some reason seem to think that hearing the Yankees fans chirp is more annoying than our division rival winning their 2nd World Series title in a row, I say to you the following: I would root for Apollo Creed to not get up in Rocky IV after being physically manhandled by Ivan Drago. After Ivan Drago says, “If he dies, he dies” I’d say, Yeah!” before I ever root […]
According to a report on ESPN.com linked here (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4581715), the NY Mets actually profited from the Bernie Madoff scheme. Awesome. I don’t know if there is an award ceremony for the business that gets the most bad press in a calendar year, but HOW the NY Mets could even be runners up in that category in 2009 is beyond me. Right now, the Mets are neck and neck with David Letterman, and trust me, more people […]
Back in August I posted here that the NY Mets should look to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as their blueprint for future success in building a franchise. (Shameless Plug: http://metsmerizedonline.com/2009/08/angels-should-be-the-mets-blueprint.html) While I am still largely on my Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim bandwagon, especially with their comeback victory against Boston in Game 3 and now the Angels and Demons matchup of Yankees/Angels on the horizon, I have to come to terms with the […]
Here is some background about me in regards to Daniel Murphy. I fully admit I am a “mark,” for him. In August of 2008, I went on mets.com and bought a blue Mets t-shirt with Mr. Met on the front and Murphy’s name and number on the back. It’s a pretty awesome shirt to be honest, and the fact I had it before almost anybody else gives me a slight sense of pride when I […]
As we come to the end of another Mets season, we hope you’ll take some time to help us select our first ever MMO Award winners for the 2009 season.
