Just before the season started, Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing, was kind enough to send me out a copy of his new book, The Happiest Recap : First Base 1962-1973. It’s the first of four volumes chronicling the rich fifty year history of the New York Mets, told only the way you would expect from Greg – by recounting the team’s most memorable wins. That’s right, this is a win-by-win accounting of all those enduring [...]
Here’s a special treat for everyone. The great Howie Rose was kind enough to give me some of his time to answer a few questions for me and also a few of our readers here on the site and our followers on Twitter at @Metsmerized. (5,015 strong, and growing!) Howie is a tremendous resource of Mets information and nobody knows the history better than he does. Here is what he had to say on some [...]
While the New York Mets have been relatively quiet this winter, past and present media have stepped up to fill-in-the-blanks. Before Opening Day at least five new Mets-related books have been, or will be, released. The two most anticipated releases will happen over the next month. Former Mets catcher Mike Piazza will release his autobiography, Long Shot, on February 12. The book was co-written by writer Lonnie Wheeler, a Cincinnati sports columnist, who also wrote [...]
A couple of weeks ago, the great Mets historian and author Matt Silverman, was nice enough to give me a sneak preview into his newest publication, Swinging ’73: Baseball’s Wildest Season. The verdict is in, and Matt has done it again – delivering another Amazin’ Book that should be a part of every Met fan’s library. This isn’t your regular everyday telling of the “Ya Gotta Believe” season, and in fact it was not what [...]

Yesterday, a trio of famous knuckleballers made their way to MLB’s FanCave to promote the movie “Knuckleball!” directed by Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg. Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, former Red Sox Tim Wakefield, and the Mets’ R.A. Dickey all fielded questions about the movie as well as being a knuckleball pitcher in the major leagues. Metsmerized Online was invited to the event for a special roundtable discussion and I was also able to get [...]

Walking into the movie theater to see Moneyball, I had my doubts. Will this capture what the book is about? How can Brad Pitt play a hot-head GM like Billy Beane? Is this going to be another Hollywood interpretation of the true essence of sports? To say the least, I had my doubts. I had very low expectations as the lights dimmed and the previews started rolling. But from the moment the opening scene began with the [...]
