Hot as Fire…or Not at All?

An article by posted on May 31, 2008

Happy Saturday Mets fans and welcome to another edition of Hot or Not. This week, we’ve watched our Metropolitans resurge against the (formerly) first place Marlins. They took a step backwards last night against the Dodgers, but I believe that they can still turn this thing around! Hot as FireDavid Wright: Heeeeeeeeee’s baaaaaaack! After last […]

Ya (Still) Gotta Believe

An article by posted on May 31, 2008

There was a baseball team that played many years ago. Their statistics were less than stellar to say the least. The # 2 and # 3 starters were both under .500 for the season. The right fielder led the team in RBI’s with a mere 79. The power came from a first baseman who led the club with […]

Two years ago, on May 23, 2006, the Mets were playing the rival Phillies. The game was tied 8-8 and went into extras. The Phillies’ Ryan Madsen had entered his 7th inning of relief when one Carlos Beltran stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the 16th inning. That night, Carlos Beltran hit a […]

Give Willie His Just Reward For This Turnaround

An article by posted on May 30, 2008

Visions of 2006 have cluttered my mind over the past three days. For much of the last eight months of baseball at Shea Stadium, the Metropolitans were a hollow vessel lacking a heart beat. They were there in body, looking quite lavish in their blue and orange uniforms, but it was quite evident that the […]

It’s Time To Say Good-Bye To The Delgado Shift

An article by posted on May 29, 2008

I’ve seen enough of Damion Easley, Fernando Tatis and Marlon Anderson before he got injured, to know that we can and should do better than Carlos Delgado at first base. His slump is not technically a slump. Slumps don’t last two years. Delgado is in steep decline and the sooner the Mets realize it, the […]

Mets Fans, This is What it’s All About

An article by posted on May 29, 2008

One word describes last night – AMAZING!!  What we witnessed last night, my friends, is reminiscent of 2006 – the Team, the Time, the Mets!  They did everything right – from quality pitching, aggressive base running, timely hitting and passionate energy.  Tears filled my eyes as the team greeted Beltran at home plate, as he […]

Just before the start of the bottom of the 11th, SNY played a video of the 1969 Mets singing "You Gotta Have Heart".

A MetsWrighter’s View

An article by posted on May 28, 2008

Please be advised that this blog was compiled yesterday, before the Mets beat the Marlins 5-3 at Shea.  If in fact this team is beginning to turn it around, this will all seem a little less meaningful.  They say, “No news is good news.”  In the Mets case, no news is, well, no news.  Same […]

On Monday, Mets Merized Online was able to sneak into the Wilpon’s conference room at Shea Stadium and plant a hidden microphone under the Mr. Met lamp in the corner, next to the signed photo from Sandy Koufax.  We transcribed what we heard for you during the now famous Willie meeting. The cast of characters […]
