I’ve always been a Mets fan. Well, since around 1970 or so…that’s as far back as I can remember. So even though many of you have read my work on there the last six-eight months about how frustrated and annoyed I am with the way the team has played and the direction they have gone in with personnel, a new season is upon us and optimism reigns supreme. Let’s face it, every baseball fan loves [...]
I guess writing for this awesome site has been good for something this off season–it’s forced me to think about the Mets at least once a week. Because honestly, I haven’t been thinking about them much since their season ended a month ago. In fact, since I’m being honest, I didn’t watch many games after the wheels came off following the all-star break (and I know many of you are with me on that!). And [...]
The 2009 Mets lived an interesting life even though it ended sooner than we would have liked. They wanted to be your friend throughout the season; the kind of friend that stood by you when you needed one to make you stand up and cheer. Sometimes they succeeded (the last three games of the season) and sometimes they failed (the other 159 games). But they kept trying to be there for us, even when we [...]
The Mets have pretty much raised the white flag on the 2009 season, and if they haven’t, I’d be happy to do it for them. They now have enough players on the DL to field a whole team, but as we are reduced to watching AAA and AA players wear the Blue and Orange, I’m embracing this time. I’m embracing it because now I can do things in August and September without being emotionally attached [...]
Earlier today, Joe D posted a blog on the 1969 tribute at Citi Field. In it, he included a “where are they now” segment to catch readers up on what their heroes from 40 years ago are doing. Perhaps I should do the same with the 2009 Mets. After all, some of this year’s players have been gone for so long, we may not recognize them when they come back. Below you will find the [...]
Okay, I’ll admit that even though I live in the central time zone, I’m not staying up until midnight or later to watch our Mets. And I’m certainly not going to watch as they are on the big drop portion of the roller coaster ride that is the 2009 season.
