After reading an article by Joe D., who was very pleased with how Sandy Alderson handled himself in the days leading up to the Trade Deadline, I wrote him and asked if I could submit a rebuttal. He was kind enough to allow me that courtesy and encouraged me to fire away. So fire away, I shall. I’m sorry Sandy, but you blew it. I take no joy in the fact that Marlon Byrd is […]
A version of this story originally appeared in The Tablet Newspaper. Brooklyn Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly is known for being a passionate man. He’s coached professional baseball at various levels for nearly 40 years, including winning the 1997 World Series as a coach with the Florida Marlins. But Donnelly has another passion – that actually rivals his love of baseball. The 67-year-old coach is a world-class racquetball player for his age category. Now in his […]
To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their batting glove, the executives at Franklin Sports held a celebratory private batting clinic with Mets second baseman, Daniel Murphy, and team batting coach, Dave Hudgens, for a few contest winners and a number of media representatives. This one hour batting session gave viewers a first-hand chance to learn from professional ballplayers in the private facilities they often inhabit. Team officials greeted the attendees just within the doors […]
Brave service men and women are still in Afghanistan protecting the American ideal. Here is a special Fan Shot that comes from one of our friends still serving in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Michael Cunningham, US Army. I am about to return from a nine month deployment to Afghanistan with a renewed optimism about the Mets and their second half. My first game at Shea had Mike Scott on the mound and my first autograph […]
Tuesday night’s game at Citi Field marked the first time the New York Mets organization has hosted the Midsummer Classic in nearly 50 years. The last one was at Shea in it’s inaugural season of 1964. While this year’s game couldn’t match the on-field drama of that contest which ended when the Phillies’ Johnny Callison hit a walk-off homerun (long before anyone ever used the word “walk-off”) to give the NL a 7-4 victory it […]
When a team is chosen to host the MLB All-Star Game, it means not only the greatest baseball has to offer converging on a specific location, but the celebration of both the host city and team. In the past week we witnessed the All-Star Game in Flushing for the first time since 1964, and Major League Baseball, the Mets, and the City of New York did a fantastic job of putting it all together. Citi Field […]
The guys over at IMG and Subway were kind enough to allow me to attend a Media Event through MetsMerized, where I got to meet Jared (“The Subway Guy”) and our former manager, Willie Randolph. Right off the bat, I took one look at Randolph and realized that he doesn’t seem to have aged at all — slap a Mets cap on the man and he looks the same as he did when we let […]
I was 12 years old in the summer of 1978 when I heard the coolest news ever… My friend Lee called and told me he’d heard from a friend of a friend who knew where Mets second baseman Doug Flynn lived. And it was just down the street from me! True, this wasn’t Jerry Koosman or Steve Henderson or Craig Swan. But it still was a real live Mets player. Lee and I both lived in Bayside […]
Marlon Byrd checks in with MMO to talk about his experience playing for the Mets, how he’s bounced back from his 50-game PEDs suspension, his time in the Mexican League, if he thinks he’ll be traded and how to carry the momentum into the second half of the season. MMO: David mentioned before yesterday’s game that it’s been great having you on this team for your presence on and off the field, especially for the […]
