The Mets put on an Amazin’ exhibition of power and offense for the two fans who showed up this afternoon at Land Shark Stadium to see the Mets beat the Marlins 10-3. Tim Redding started and allowed three homeruns, and yet somehow these Miracle Mets were able to pull off the upset victory and avoid […]

This morning, Buster Olney has an article for ESPN Insiders that details seven logical candidates to be the next General Manager of our NY Mets. Wait, I thought Wilpon said Minaya was staying? First, if you haven’t learned to not trust what this organization says, I think you’ve been watching and listening to the wrong […]

Welcome To [Insert Name Here] Stadium

As the Mets continue their three game series against the Marlins in Florida, I decided to do a little research of past Marlins/Dolphins stadiums. Dolphin Stadium, as most of us are use to calling the home of the Marlins and Dolphins, was originated in 1984 and was called that until 1987. Later in 1987 it […]

Trading Blue for Purple.

A true Mets fan is also a baseball fan. I grew up in New York, but went to College in the New England area, and I now reside in Connecticut. Where, I had to change cable providers 3 times before I could get SNY. That’s for another time though. My biggest pet peeve is when […]

What Will September Bring?

The Mets have had such a bad year with injuries, poor management, players making mental mistakes, and not making CitiField “home.” So are the Mets ready for September baseball? Are the prospects ready to come up during the 40-man roster expansion? Well let me put this myth out of some people’s head. These prospects are […]

So, like a lot of you, I was excited for August to come. The Mets have been plagued with injuries all season and August was the month the Mets were supposed to get all of their players back. August was the Mets’ month. They were supposed to become stronger and get back into the wild […]

No Johan, No Win; Marlins Defeat Mets 2-1

On a night when Johan Santana was supposed to take the mound, Nelson Figueroa stepped into his shoes.  The rest of the team paid tribute to Johan by doing what they do best in his starts; not scoring.  They played a close game, but ultimately fell a run short, dropping the opener of the nine-game […]

The 2009 Mets: Where Are They Now?

An article by posted on August 25, 2009 0 Comments

Earlier today, Joe D posted a blog on the 1969 tribute at Citi Field.  In it, he included a “where are they now” segment to catch readers up on what their heroes from 40 years ago are doing.  Perhaps I should do the same with the 2009 Mets.  After all, some of this year’s players […]
