Here’s a special treat for everyone. The great Howie Rose was kind enough to give me some of his time to answer a few questions for me and also a few of our readers here on the site and our followers on Twitter at @Metsmerized. (5,015 strong, and growing!) Howie is a tremendous resource of Mets information and nobody knows the history better than he does. Here is what he had to say on some [...]
Forgive the random thoughts here, folks, but I thought it was easier today to touch on a few things rather than elaborate on one thing. The Mets continued their road woes last night with a 3-2 loss to the Braves, and are now 5-13 away from home, and 14-8 at Citi Field. Last year, they were 41-40 at home and 29-52 on the road, so it’s a pattern that has continued. Back in the ’80′s, [...]

Earlier this season I wrote an entry about Ralph Kiner, and how much he meant to Met fans, and I never did a follow up post about Bob Murphy. Simply put, to me and I’m sure many, many Met fans, Murph is the voice of summer. [...]
So much for all that talk about Citi Field being the place where would-be homeruns go to die… Last night, baseballs were flying out of Citi Field like nobody’s business as the Phillies and Mets combined to hit seven homeruns to set a new single game record and smashing the previous high of five at Citi Field. And while all the homeruns were no doubters, none was bigger and badder than that of Ryan Church whose blast [...]
