An article by posted on April 25, 2009 0 Comments

Once in a while, I have those days where in my gut I know that the Mets are going to lose. Once every fifth day, I feel really good about the game. With Johan Santana pitching, I know it will be a low-scoring affair (on both sides unfortunately). I think yesterday was the first game […]

Even though I already knew what it was going to say, when I got my Sports Illustrated in the mail, I turned right to the page where they had their playoff predictions. And as I saw Mets over Dodgers, Mets over Cubs, and Mets over Angels, I forgot that SI had a curse of sorts. […]

Mets All Under-Appreciated Team – Part One

An article by posted on March 24, 2009

While perusing the comments of a recent article here on Mets Merized Online, an old but familiar name popped out at me…Dave Magadan. Most of us Mets fans vaguely remember him. “Mags” played with the Amazins’ from 1986 until 1993. He was never a great player, but was decent enough to finish 22nd in the […]

Circle Of Love – Duaner, Omar, Jerry

An article by posted on March 11, 2009

Good evening MetsMerizers! I woke up this morning feeling pretty good and the first thing I see on SI.com is an article about how Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya are at odds over Duaner Sanchez being released.   Granted, the article was taken from the NY post so I’m sure it’s a bit exaggerated. The Mets […]

Random Mets Thoughts

An article by posted on February 22, 2009

Okay. I realize the Shea remembrances and tributes have been done to death recently. It had finally come to a head this week with the last remnants of the old girl finally coming down. That being said, I’m going to beat the dead horse a little more.  For 44 years our beloved Mets called Shea […]

The Mets Are America’s Team

Yes it’s true. He told me himself, the legendary Captain America. This past week I took a vacation to Universal Studios in Florida. Being a Mets fan, I couldn’t go to Universal Studios and not represent the Mets properly. So I put on the new stadium jacket my cousin got me for Christmas and headed […]
