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. [...]
We want to welcome Peter Shapiro to the Mets Merized Online staff. Most of you know Pete from the comment threads and the many Mets Minor League posts he’s submitted via our Fan Shots. Glad to have on the team, Pete! – Joe D. Usually at this time of year, the stretch run, is prime time for the Cyclones, who in past seasons, were on cruise control and observing the rest of the McNamara Division [...]
How cool is that Tron graphic from Kelly? I asked her if she would make me a cool graphic to go with my post and in a matter of nano seconds she emails me this. All Mets sites feature great posts to read, but to have artwork like Kelly’s mixed in with all of our rants and raves really adds a different character and flair to MMO. Thanks Kelly. After many great posts from my fellow bloggers [...]
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. Vaughn, the son of former Major League slugger Greg Vaughn, was drafted out of high school by the Phillies in 2007 but opted to attend San Diego State University. 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 [...]
Last night while speaking to Joe, he said something that really struck a chord with me. “Wouldn’t it be awesome if Terry Collins would let Beltran play his final days as a Mets in centerfield for old time’s sake?” How awesome would that be? Do it Terry, do it! Here are the first of some new Carlos Beltran graphics I designed last night in celebration of Carlos Beltran Appreciation Week at Mets Merized Online. Enjoy them! Move over Angel, [...]
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 [...]
Update 10:27 Terry Collins addressed the following issues at the post-game press conference: He was not happy with his team’s offensive performance. He will review the tape to see if Clay Hensley had extra movement on his pitches or if his team was just having poor at-bats. Collins was pleased with Capuano’s start, saying that he gave the team a chance . When Hairston went down early, it limited what the Mets could do with [...]
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of speaking with Daily News writer Andy Martino. For those of you that do not know, Andy is a BBWAA member who does an exceptional job for Daily News as their Mets beat writer. He wrote for the Philadelphia Inquirer as the Phillies beat writer during the 2009 season before returning to the Daily News. Here are the highlights of our E-mail conversation: -Andy, after returning to the Mets after [...]
Earlier today I had the pleasure of being joined by MetsBlog.com blogger, Michael Baron on my radio show “Mets Talk Live! Wright or Wrong?!? and he has a lot to say on the K-Rod trade as well as the Mets going forward in 2011 and beyond. Here is what Michael had to say on Sandy Alderson’s conference call earlier today regarding the K-Rod trade: JS: Hey Michael, I saw the news break last night on [...]
