Our site moderator Joe D. informed us a few days ago of a blood drive that the Mets are hosting Thursday, Jan. 5 at Citi Field. The team is offering a voucher for free tickets to a select game in April for anyone that donates. It got me thinking, how many fans would be willing to bleed for their team? OK, so it’s only a pint of blood, but there are many people out there […]
Amid the sadness of losing Jose Reyes to the Miami Marlins, the Mets organization spread some holiday cheer the afternoon of Dec. 13 at the team’s annual Kids’ Holiday Party in the Acela Club at Citi Field. Students from local schools performed holiday tunes, enjoyed a free lunch and received a gift from the big guy himself, Santa Claus. But hopefully the pressure of having kids sit on his lap didn’t affect Santa’s rehabbing knees, […]
For shortstop Jose Reyes, the 2011 season was the ninth season of his career with the New York Mets, and Mets fans certainly knew the day was coming when Reyes became a free agent. The Mets have been bleeding cash for several years now, and even the move into their new facility at CitiField in time for the start of the 2009 season couldn’t stop the negative cash flow. Owners Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz are […]
Construction has begun on moving in the outfield walls at Citi Field to make the ballpark more ‘hitter friendly.’ To date, the new stadium in Flushing has been a cavernous structure where home runs go to die. The Great Wall of Flushing and the Mo’s Zone right center gap have left hitters thinking home run out of the box but realizing that the ball had hit the wall, or worse, landed in an outfielder’s glove. […]
David Wright was one of three Mets players selected to represent the team at the announcement of the 50th anniversary season Nov. 16 at Citi Field. I was on hand to cover the event for Metsmerized. Wright discussed a multitude of topics, while noting that he likes the team’s new uniforms and that his back is feeling very good after missing time last season due to injury. He said it’s been an honor to be […]
In the Jerry Bruckheimer film, ‘The Rock,’ John Patrick Mason turned to Stanley Goodspeed and uttered a classic movie line: “Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and get a World Series ring.” No…wait, that wasn’t it. But this website is suitable for all ages. (I pause now so we can all do our own personal Sean Connery impression.) As another Mets season comes to an August close yet again, the excuses […]
With the Mets 7 1/2 games behind the wild card leading Atlanta Braves, but still having two months to go in the season, I’m not one to give up and give in concerning the Amazin’s playoff chances here in 2011. After the trade of closer Francisco Rodriguez the night of the All-Star game, and then just a few short weeks later with the trade of the resurgent Carlos Beltran many saw this as this team […]
Update 10:27 Terry Collins addressed the following issues at the post-game press conference: He was not happy with his team’s offensive performance. He will review the tape to see if Clay Hensley had extra movement on his pitches or if his team was just having poor at-bats. Collins was pleased with Capuano’s start, saying that he gave the team a chance . When Hairston went down early, it limited what the Mets could do with […]
With the Mets having dropped 2 of 3 already in their 6-game home stand against AL West foes, the Angels, and with the A’s coming to town tomorrow night, its time for the Mets to step up and just win. The Amazins, haven’t been so amazing this year as the record stands at a sub-par 35-37, while the team has played under .500 ball all season long at home compiling just a 16-19 record at […]
