Color me optimistic, but I do not believe the sky is falling in Queens. I heard rumors of such an event. I heard adamant insistence that such rumor was fact. So I decided to be brave, open up my door, look out into the big, bad city and take a look for myself. I looked to my left. I looked to my right. When I didn’t see casualties lying on the ground that were the […]
It’s hard to believe that we’re only a few seasons removed from some of the best offensive seasons in Mets history (hard to argue they haven’t been offensive lately, just in a different sense). So what are the 10 best Mets seasons in terms of offensive production over the last 34 seasons? (I’m using 1980 because I’ve been following the team since the 80s) Runs Scored Per Game 1. 1999 – 853 scored – 5.23 2. 2006 […]
Baseball historians will say that Dwight Gooden‘s first three seasons in the major leagues were some of the best by a young pitcher in the game’s history. Gooden took the mound 99 times from 1984 to 1986, going 58-19 with a 2.28 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 35 complete games, 13 shutouts and 744 strikeouts – reaching 200 or more strikeouts in each season. But after off-the-field problems came to light prior to the 1987 campaign, Gooden […]
Six weeks ago, an unidentified Mets executive – and really, how many are there – told Mike Puma of the Post that the front office was pleased with the work of Terry Collins and his staff. Then he said this: “I think they’re doing a good job of sprinting to the finish line.” Sure, if the runner in question is Ramon Castro. The Mets are sprinting nowhere, once again. They’re tumbling, scuffling, tripping to the […]
You might be frustrated and disgusted by watching the Mets lose to the Nationals, but it is far better than not having any Mets to watch at all. October has to be the worst month because there’s baseball, but baseball without the Mets. At least in November there’s the start of the free-agent season, highlighted by the Winter Meetings, which is winter’s World Series. January? You can see spring training from there, and February, regardless […]

Former Mets’ star Lee Mazzilli made the borough of Brooklyn his stomping grounds growing up. Abraham Lincoln H.S. in Coney Island was his home until the Mets drafted him right out of high school in 1973. Located just a mile and half from Lincoln down Ocean Parkway and on Surf Avenue is MCU Park. Though the stadium wasn’t there during Mazzilli’s playing days, he now has a special connection to the park. Lee’s son, L.J. […]

Marc Raimondi of the NY Post writes about Dwight Gooden who has a soon to be released biography entitled, “Doc: A Memoir.” The bio reveals some shocking and even sad details about his life in baseball and the toll that drug addiction took on his career and his life. Gooden believes if he had died the moment the Mets won the World Series in 1986, he would have saved many people a great deal of […]
