The Mets signed Curtis Granderson Friday to a four year, $60 million deal. One thing is for sure, he can hit. But there’s only one problem with that. Granderson has played his whole career thus far in the American League, revealing uncertainty when it comes to facing the National League. Let’s take a look at how he has fared against the NL East and where his 43 2012 home runs would have landed in opponents’ […]
Ah it’s that time of year again… A time for new beginnings, a time for change, and for most it is a time for optimism. Yes, it’s time for that kooky year end ritual otherwise known as the Hot Stove Season – or as many Mets fans in the past five years like to say - PURGATORY!!! Once again, many Met fans have bought in to ownership’s promises of the team spending more money than it did last […]
Earlier in the day yesterday among all the speculation and the harsh reality that ensued after a few cryptic quotes from Mets C.O.O, Jeff Wilpon, the Mets revealed that no they were not about to announce a trade nor did they announce the signing of a power bat. But what they did unveil were the promotional dates for next season which included post game concerts by ’80′s pop rock stalwarts Huey Lewis and the News […]
I have been a Mets fan since my birth 41 years ago, and in that time I have seen more than a handful of highs – and more than my share of lows. I have lived through Frank Taveras and Alex Trevino, Bob Bailor and Bruce Bosclair, Rich Rodriguez and Tony Tarasco, and now Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada. This is why whenever somebody looks at me cross-eyed when they find out that I am […]
It is funny how sometimes we look like famous people. I for example have been told that I look like a bloated Danny Partridge or a late in his career Rusty Staub (hence my nickname Rustyjr). But it is amazing when some of our favorite current Mets players and coaches look like other famous people. So here I am happy to revive an old feature I used to do at another blog called ……. METS […]
In a chat for ESPN Insider, baseball analyst Keith Law fielded a couple of questions about the Mets including one on Juan Lagares. Keith Law: Pretty darn good defender, better than I’d ever heard (never saw him before he reached the majors). He was 10th on my Mets prospect rankings before 2012, so he was on the radar, but spent about a decade in Savannah before he finally hit enough to move up the ladder. Joe […]
Citi, the New York Mets and the Mets Alumni Association were on hand Monday prior to the series opener against the Atlanta Braves in front of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda to help fight hunger in our area. As part of the initiative, over 75 Citi volunteers and the Mets were on hand along with City Harvest to repackage over 25,000 pounds of sweet potatoes. Members of the Mets Alumni Association Rusty Staub and John Franco […]
I hate these types of posts. The ones where you have to point out that your favorite team in the whole wide world did or said something that you find very appalling or distasteful. Just before the beginning of this season, the New York Mets decided to add a Native American Heritage Night to their promotional schedule for the new season. The Mets have always been very proactive in embracing the diversity of our city […]
Thousands of baseball books have been published. Millions of baseball stories have been told, every one of them starts with the same basic understanding: two teams, nine innings, balls, strikes, runs, hits and errors. Along the way there are various twists and turns ending in perfect games, no hitters, walk off home runs and everything in between. No two games are the same, but many are alike. They all come back to the final out. […]
