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 […]
On January 3, 1920, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold Babe Ruth along with mortgage rights on Fenway Park to the New York Yankees. On January 4, 1920, there were no newspaper articles talking about ‘The Curse of the Bambino.’ For a curse to gain traction two things must happen. First, there must be the passage of time. Secondly, a reversal of fortune based around strange and unexplainable events from that point forward must occur. […]
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Scott Kazmir will make his first career start against the Mets tonight, nine years, one month, and eight days after the Mets traded the budding prospect for Victor Zambrano and Bartolome Fortunato. The trade will always be remembered as one of the worst in Mets history, as Kazmir went on to have four very good seasons for the Devil Rays-turned Rays. Meanwhile, Zambrano had a decent 2005, but one day after […]
David Wright told reporters Carlos Beltran was under-appreciated when he was with the Mets before last night’s home run derby… “He had a couple of monster seasons for us, and was a huge reason why we made it as far as we did in 2006,” Wright said of his former teammate. ”We came a couple runs from making the World Series, and we don’t get close to that without Carlos. So hopefully his reception from the […]
I wanted to update this post with a chart by Mr. North Jersey who plotted David Wright’s first 87 games for each season of his career. It helps to illustrate further why I don’t see 2013 as Wright’s career year, at least not so far… Hat tip to MNJ… Original Post: Though I enjoy employing and often using many of the new advanced metrics in my own posts now, I still see some of these […]
Saturday’s marathon was the longest game ever in Citi Field history and the longest in the majors since April 17, 2010, when the Mets beat St. Louis, 2-1 in 20 innings. The previous long at Citi Field was October 3, 2010, a 14-inning, 2-1 loss to the Nationals. Saturday was also tied for the fourth-longest game in franchise history and the longest since the April 17, 2010 game in St. Louis. The last home game […]
Something struck me as odd earlier this spring as I watched SNY’s first broadcast of the season from Tradition Field. Our splendid announcers were interviewing Collin Cowgill and at one point I believe it was Ron Darling asked whether Collin was getting a lot of ribbing about something or other in his background (I think it was about an underperforming college team he was affiliated with – I can’t remember exactly). The thing I found […]
We wont win this season. We wont compete this season. We wont be any good this season. Okay, now that that’s settled, lets go ‘Play Ball’ this season and see what happens. Opening Day is a little over one month away and when that first pitch is thrown, the Mets technically have just as good a chance as anyone to win. We Mets fans are an interesting bunch Always have been. In 1962 that other […]
Sadly, Carlos Beltran’s Mets legacy will forever be defined by what he didn’t do: take the bat off his shoulder against Adam Wainwright during Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. However, Beltran meant so much to the Mets organization over the past seven years for his work on and off the field. He was honored at MLB’s annual B.A.T. dinner as the recipient of the Bart Giamatti Award for outstanding community service. Beltran’s organization, the […]
