On Tuesday, September 27, the rock band Council will be performing live at Citi Field before the Mets take on the Cincinnati Reds.in the last night game of the 2011 season. Pat, Doug and Andy, the three brothers who make-up the band, were gracious enough to answer a few questions for me about their upcoming pre-game performance. Welcome to Mets Merized Online guys, why don’t you first tell us a bit about yourselves and your band… Well first our band is […]
To take our minds off the floundering excuse for a baseball team, I present to you a look back at a bit of baseball history from a different perspective. Recently, I was lucky enough to interview Gil Hodges’ widow, Joan Hodges. She was so sweet and had so many great stories. As the saying goes, “Behind every great man, there stands a great woman.” Such is the case for Gil. On Dec. 26, 1948, Hodges married […]
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. […]

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 […]
