On Friday, I spoke to former Minnesota Twins pitching prospect, Alex Merricks, who signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets last month, and was invited to participate in Spring Training. During the 30 minute interview, I spoke with Alex about his return to the game of baseball after being released by the Twins in 2005. It’s a remarkable story of perseverance and determination from a hard throwing lefthander who did not take the usual […]
As last season came to a sad close, many of us pushed back our tears and wondered out loud, “How could this have happened to us”. We searched for answers, but there were none that can console us. We were broken and we needed someone or something to restore our faith. January 5th seemed just like an ordinary day. Most of us were still feeling down, and so far the off season had not been […]
Here’s the the final part of the interview I did with Steve Popper of the Bergen Record. JD - Should the Mets get off to a slow start in 2008, and find themselves hovering around .500 and in third place at the All Star Break, should either Willie Randolph or Omar Minaya be worried about their job security? SP: I think Willie Randolph might want to worry this time around if he starts 0-1. Clearly, he was dangling […]
Yesterday, Steve Popper of the Bergen Record was nice enough to answer a few questions for us. Steve covers the New York Mets for the Record and also has a great blog, Amazin’ Stories which I love to check out each day. Okay, here goes… JD – Before I throw some Mets related questions at you, I’ve noticed that you have been keeping a watchful eye on the latest round of steroids hearings on your blog. It […]

Coaching Staff & Management(Willie Randolph, Omar Minaya, Howard Johnson, Rick Peterson, Rickey Henderson, Sandy Alomar Sr., various others) Ryan P. – This season was […]
Once again, Adam Rubin of the Daily News, took some time to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. Adam is the Mets’ beat writer, and is also the author of the book "Pedro, Carlos and Omar." 1. It seems like the Mets’ chances of securing the NL East title, have gotten a lot better with the addition of Luis Castillo, and the healthy returns of Moses Alou and Carlos Beltran. What is the feeling in the clubhouse with most of […]
I love New York. No, really, I mean it – I looooove New York. Born in Flushing just minutes from Shea, it was inevitable that I would grow up to be a Mets fan. Dad was a die-hard fan; so was Mom. Both were originally Brooklyn Dodgers fans, growing up in Brooklyn. So it was no wonder why they rooted for the team that brought National League baseball back to New York. Taking the blue from […]
OK. So the Mets didn’t sweep the Yanks. They didn’t even take the series. But they didn’t get swept either. In fact, the season series is tied at three and the next time these two teams could face each other would be the World Series. Let me sum up this past weekend for those of you who couldn’t bare to watch for yourselves…our offense was mediocre. Our pitching was lacking. And our defense was, if nothing else, questionable. Even […]
Yesterday afternoon, Mark Hale of the New York Post, shared some of his insights with me over the phone about the New York Mets. Mark is the beat writer for the Mets, and his articles are required reading for all Mets fans. He is certainly one of my favorite sports writers. He also has a great Mets Blog. This is the second part of the interview. The first part was posted earlier today. * * […]
