Well, some of the facts may not be “fun” for Mets fans, but the April 17th Mets/Cards 20-inning game made some wierd history. Jayson Stark writes a column for espn.com with a “Strange But True” theme every so often, and his year-end article featured the early-season marathon. Here’s some of his findings: Stranguest But Truest Game Of […]

I hope that Joe D. will forgive me this post, but I’d like to put in a few words about some local athletes who are tearing up the record books by playing their game very well. I’m speaking as someone who spent her freshman year at UCONN idolizing the men’s basketball team and interning on […]

All Quiet On The “Metstern” Front

An article by posted on December 21, 2010 0 Comments

OK, so this title is a bit corny, but it certainly rings true as the Mets approach the half-way point of the offseason. Spring training is a little over 1.5 months away, and it appears the Mets still have much to do to gear up for the season. That is of course unless the organization […]

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 […]

Mets Need To Make Do With What They Have (Starting Pitching Edition)

An article by posted on December 20, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]
