I love music. As I’m sure many of you can agree, there are poignant moments in our lives when we can not only remember what was happening, but also be able to put a song to it. Case in point, 1988 NLCS. Mets vs. Dodgers. The two teams traded punches back and forth until Game 7 when the Orel Hershiser led Dodgers shutout the Mets 6-0 and ended the Mets season. I can remember waking up [...]
UPDATE 12:20 PM Done Deal! WFAN is reporting that Aaron Heilman of the Seattle Mariners, has been traded to the Chicago Cubs for Ronny Cedeno. Wow, that west coast trip didn’t last long… This can’t be good for Heilman’s psyche… Original Post ESPN 1000 Radio, is reporting that the Chicago Cubs are pursuing a trade that might land them former Met Aaron Heilman in return for Ronny Cedeno. The Cubs also continue to pursue Seattle pitcher [...]
It’s only late January, it’s already late January. Are you feeling as if K-Rod and the guy whose name is profane in Yiddish maybe aren’t the pieces that make us complete? Maybe eight-ten more saves and a few fewer blown games won’t get us over the hump? Now, hold on just a minute, you say. We’ve added Tim Redding, Freddy Garcia, Alex Cora, Rob Mackowiak, and, um, er some other guys this winter. Heck, we [...]
One of our writers Tanya, got in touch with the CitiField ticket office regarding single game ticket sales. I’ll let her tell you the rest. I spoke with two people over at the Sh…er…Citi Field ticket office. So weird to say that. I asked them when the single game tickets will go on sale, and if Opening Day and the Subway Series will be a part of that. Here’s what they told me. While there is [...]

Detroit Tigers pitching coach Rick Knapp is saying Kenny Rogers has decided to retire, according to mlive.com. Rogers has not made this official. Knapp is claiming since he is close to the pitcher, he claims it as fact. Other reports have indicated the 44 year old pitcher has been contemplating coming back in 2009 to give himself another year. Should he retire, he will be known by one horrible moment in Mets Fan-dom and one [...]
There have only been a handful of players in Mets history that can be referred to by first name only. One of these is Darryl. Colorful, exciting and controversial, the life of Darryl Strawberry resembles a Shakespearean Tragedy. He thrived playing major league baseball, battled personal demons, defeated drug and alcohol addiction and encountered legal problems. His fall from grace was monumental. But his life has come full circle. On May 6, 1983 Tom Seaver [...]
I’m a little worried about where our power will come from in 2009. We can easily count on Carlos Beltran to hit at least twenty-five homers and most likely thirty, but then what? The Mets don’t have that prototypical power hitting corner outfielder in left field or right. The most homeruns that right-fielder Ryan Church ever hit in a season was fifteen, and at 30-years old, he isn’t getting any younger or better. Who knows what we can expect [...]
