We Need A Miracle

Today, I called my dad to wish him a happy birthday. The subject naturally went from how many candles he’s blowing out tonight to the Mets. Okay, so we beat the Nationals. The sad thing was that I was excited about it. I threw my hands in the air without looking at the bigger picture; […]

These Mets Are Not “Loveable Losers”

An article by posted on June 28, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets go into tonight’s nationally broadcast game having already lost the season series to the Yankees. With Livan Hernandez taking on Chien-Ming Wang, we should have a chance. Key word: should. With the recent luck of this team, we will probably embarrass ourselves while making Wang look like Cy Young. The Mets are coasting […]

Ya Gotta Believe or Ya Gotta Bereave?

If you would have told me that the Mets would be in second place at the beginning of June, I probably would have believed you. If you had told me we’d be in second place without Jose Reyes and Carlos Delgado and with Wilson Valdez and Fernando Martinez, I probably would have laughed in your […]

When I got home from work this afternoon, I went to check my Facebook profile and I found this wall post from by best friend, who will remain nameless and happens to be a Red Sox fan: “Now I have gloating rights. Sox won 12-5.” Okay, so I rubbed it in when the Mets won […]

Dear Philly fans, After seeing John Gonzalez’s letter to Mets fans in the Philadelphia Inquirer, I felt a response was necessary. Okay, we get it, you won the World Series. You’re the best team in baseball and nobody can take that away from you until October. Now the Phillies have won as many World Series […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Johan

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 […]

It’s Our Turn Now

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 […]
