When the morning of September 11th came, many of us just thought of it as any other day, ready for the usual daily grind. Many of us baseball fans were anxious about the pennant races as the 2001 baseball season wound down to the last few games. But with the falling of the World Trade Center towers, everything stopped, everything became different. All the usual minuscule worries we found to be so paramount suddenly became negligible and unimportant. A sense […]
Prior to Thursday night’s 7-5 win over the Marlins, several Mets including R.A. Dickey, Lucas Duda, Chris Capuano, Nick Evans, Dillon Gee, Mike Nickeas and Bobby Parnell met with families who were affected by the 9/11 attacks through the Tuesday’s Children organization. Families got to speak with players, get a signed baseball or two and take some pictures with their favorite Mets. Tuesday’s children started shortly after the 9/11 attacks and has been going to […]
Last week, less than 24 hours before the signing deadline, the Mets and SS/OF Bradley Marquez officially came to an agreement on a contract with the New York Mets. In June, the standout dual-sport athlete was selected in the 16th round of the MLBaseball First-Year Player Draft. On Sunday, I had a chance to speak to Bradley who was gracious enough to give me 20 minutes of his time in which we discussed a variety of topics. […]
According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million children and adults—8.3 percent of the population—are living with the diabetes. Among these is Mets outfield prospect Cory Vaughn.

He was then drafted by the Mets in last year’s draft. All he’s done so far in the Mets […]
Mack from Mack’s Mets spoke to Steven Matz who will be shutdown for the rest of the 2011 season. Matz: - Hey Mack, yeah, my season is definitely going to be over. I was back in simulated games in May, and I seemed to be fine. My velocity on all my pitches was back and even a little higher, but it started to hurt again. I got a second opinion from Dr Andrews and he said its just […]
As most of you know, I’ve interviewed past Mets players before. However, last Sunday, In The Game Collectibles brought New York Mets second baseman Justin Turner to Park East and it was a great time for everyone there. Turner came straight from Citi Field after playing the Philadelphia Phillies, and I was so happy that I got a chance to sit down and talk to him. He spent the night signing autographs, taking pictures, and even taking time to greet fans who were all so […]

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of talking with SNY’s Ted Berg on my radio show, “Mets Talk Live! Wright or Wrong?!?”, and and boy what a show it turned out to be.
