First, check out all the details on this very cool book… The Amazins: Celebrating 50 Years of New York Mets History To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this beloved franchise, Triumph Books and the New [...]
As we all know, Gil Hodges will be on the Veterans’ Committee Hall of Fame ballot for 2012. So expect to hear plenty of discussion over the next few months about whether or not he should be enshrined. I personally was not around when Gil played or managed, but I consider myself lucky to have heard the great stories of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the 1969 Miracle Mets. I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. [...]
Yesterday, Mark Healey was kind enough to answer a few questions for me on the state of the New York Mets. For those of you who don’t know, Mark is the Online Editor for Baseball Digest and also hosts, BD Fantasy Baseball on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. Among his many other projects, Mark is the Co-publisher and Executive Editor of Gotham Baseball, an online magazine that is a must-read for any baseball fan. For all you Mets fans [...]
Recently, Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog was kind enough to answer a few questions for me via email, in which he shares his thoughts on some of the issues facing the Mets and the current state of the team. Joe – I am very concerned about Johan Santana despite the rosy outlook that he will be ready for spring training. First, he never came back last season and that really bothered me considering how many different timetables were [...]
With all the fanfare surrounding the cool announcements the Mets made about the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the 1962 Mets this past week, I thought I’d share my interview with an original Met, first baseman Eddie Kranepool. Eddie of course was an original Met who began his career at the age of 17 in 1962 and played for the Amazins’ until the 1979 season when he retired after 18 seasons with the team at age 34.
David Wright was one of three Mets players selected to represent the team at the announcement of the 50th anniversary season Nov. 16 at Citi Field. I was on hand to cover the event for Metsmerized. Wright discussed a multitude of topics, while noting that he likes the team’s new uniforms and that his back is feeling very good after missing time last season due to injury. He said it’s been an honor to be [...]
Can you believe the Mets have been in existence for 50 seasons? The team announced its plans for its 50th anniversary season on Nov. 16 at a press conference held at Citi Field’s Caesars Club. The Mets are planning a season-long celebration. Longtime Met fan and WFAN radio broadcaster Howie Rose served as the emcee for the day’s events. He recalled his memories growing up as a fan and working for the team over the [...]
It is said over and over again that the problem with the Mets is a combination of financial difficulties coupled with unwise spending and negligence in development of youth needed to build a winning franchise. There is some truth in all of this the only question seems to be in the perception of how bad and how much applies to each argument. In the case of Bad contracts the usual suspects cited are Oliver Perez [...]
The Mets drafted Dylan Owen in the 20th round of the 2007 draft out of Francis Marion University. Since then he has gradually worked his way up through the Mets system, receiving little fanfare, but pitching well. He has spent time at nearly every level of the Mets minor league chain, from Brooklyn to Buffalo. Last year he pitched almost all season at AAA Buffalo, making 20 GS and 5 relief appearances totaling 116.1 IP. [...]
