Don’t Call It a Boycott: The Great CitiField Sit Out

An article by posted on August 19, 2010 0 Comments

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe D for his support in promoting the CitiField Sit Out.  The sit out is an experiment, borne of some discussions on Twitter, via several ideas on Facebook and other social media, based on Mets fans’ general feelings towards the team. I have often said that to […]

Game Preview: Diamondbacks vs Mets

An article by posted on July 31, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets play the second game of the series tonight after losing to Arizona again this season last night. It was bizarre and stressful game last night as the strike zone was about the size of an apple, the Mets had power to rally (early), Valdes self-destructed, and Citi-Field continued to fall apart.

The All-Star Game isn’t until tomorrow, but my thoughts have already turned to the post-Break schedule for the Mets.  The Mets are one of nine teams in the hotly contested National League playoff race.  The other eight teams are either leading their respective divisions, leading the Wild Card race or within two games of the […]

This week, I had a conversation with a source who is very close to a member of the Mets organization. This Mets source told him that the Mets will not be spending large amounts of money on any players any time soon. He cited Jason Bay as being the last of the big signings.  Citing the situation regarding the […]

I Want More Interleague Play

I grew up in an era when interleague play was a pipe dream, or a gleam in Bud Selig’s eye.  But I always loved watching the World Series when a National League team would face off against an American League squad, and I also remember going to the Mayor’s Trophy Game, an exhibition between the […]

Oh, Give Me A Home

Citi Field, aged two, already has a past. Last year when we first saw the place, there were a lot of Brooklyn memorabilia and exhibits there. We knew that the Dodgers had moved to LA in the long ago fifties, so many of the visitors thought that something was wrong. And it was. Fred Wilpon, […]

Home Cookin’ Never Tasted So Good

An article by posted on May 27, 2010 0 Comments

A funny thing happened on the way to the Eastern Division title: The Mets discovered the kryptonite that may derail the Phillies’ season. And the green rock that renders all with super power to mush, lies smack underneath Citi Field.  Suddenly the powerful home run loving Phills routinely squeeze out long fly balls at the […]
