Mets Should Bring Back Old-Timers Day In 2011

Last week I wrote about how the Mets need to find ways to entice the fans to come out to the ballpark in 2011.  Last week I brought up the idea of retiring 17 in honor Keith Hernandez.  I thought it would give Mets fans something to look forward to during the long season that […]

For those of you who know me, you know that I am a major advocate for pitching in baseball. I understand that the Mets haven’t been active this offseason and I’m damn sure not happy about it. (Believe me, the Marcum deal ticked me off more than Greinke’s –> Why were the Mets not in on that?!) But whatever […]

Frank Edwin ‘Tug’ McGraw was a relief pitcher for the New York Mets for 9 seasons. Over that time he compiled 85 saves with a 3.17 ERA. But he is best remembered for a phrase. In 1973, as the Mets were treading water in the NLE basement at the end of August, McGraw coined the […]

Can Someone Please Define “Patience?”

The MMO fan base seems to be split recently. There’s a small group of people who are entirely unimpressed (to put it mildly) with Alderson and Co. for not spending money they don’t have on players that won’t help. There’s a seemingly larger group of fans who understand that this team, despite a new front office, […]

Sports Betting and Sportsmanship

An article by posted on December 19, 2010 0 Comments

When you think about Charlie Samuels’ recent sports betting bust, you can’t help but be a little creeped out. Sure, it’s sleazy to give out insider information on the Mets for gambling purposes and using the company account as a personal bank; it’s quite another to be caught knee-deep in hundreds of thousands of dollars in mob […]

Talking with Jason Bay was one of the highlights of the day. He said he has felt good since the end of September and has no restrictions moving forward. I was ecstatic when the Mets signed Bay last offseason. I always thought that when he played for the Pirates that he would be a great […]

Highlights From The Carlos Beltran Interview

An article by posted on December 17, 2010 0 Comments

To be honest, in preparing for the Mets Holiday party, I was pretty sure there would be one player I would not get the chance to talk to: Carlos Beltran. With all the hype surrounding a possible position change or even a trade, I figured Beltran would briefly talk to the writers and reporters and […]
