Road Warriors…Come Out To Play-ay!

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets have been outstanding this season at home, going 14-8 over their first 22 games at Citi Field. However, when they leave Flushing, they seem to forget to pack their bats and their ability to win ballgames. After last night’s 3-2 defeat to the Atlanta Braves, a loss that dropped the Mets back into […]

An article by posted on May 19, 2010 0 Comments

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 […]

Where’s The Thump In Bay’s Bat?

An article by posted on May 18, 2010 0 Comments

Jason Bay is a guess hitter because he has been streaky his entire career.  So far, his short tenure with the Mets has been one wrong answer after another.   Take the seventh inning of Sunday’s fifth straight Mets loss – Please.  With the annoying Marlins about to break out a four-pack of brooms, the Mets […]

Since this will be my first post on Mets Merized Online, I figured it would be only fitting that I share with you my “first” visit to the amazing Citi Field.  I am sure many of you have visited Citi Field numerous times and the luster of it has most likely faded, but I encourage […]

Citi Field Of Dreams, And Nightmares…

In another time, perhaps 50 years from now, the Mets will get the opportunity to tear down Citifield, and build a new stadium for their fans and team. The life cycle of Citifield will have reached it’s end. The Stadium will have hosted multiple championship teams and hosted All Star, playoff, and World Series games. […]

Jason Bay Has Been Solid In Citi Field

An article by posted on May 9, 2010 0 Comments

Many were worried about Jason bay being able to hit at Citi Field after the Mets signed him. Some said that Citi Field wasn’t his type of park or that he wasn’t the kind of player who could succeed in Citi Field. Just over five weeks into the season, Bay is batting .239 this season with just […]

Mets Could Have Six Players With 20+ Home Runs This Season

An article by posted on May 8, 2010 0 Comments

Last season was one of frustration and futility where home runs and the Mets were concerned. A brand new ball park was held to blame for the lack of oomph in the Mets offense and many were convinced that David Wright would never eclipse 15 homers in a season again. If this season has shown […]

Johan Santana: A Solitary Warrior When He Takes The Mound

An article by posted on May 5, 2010 0 Comments

Pitchers are my favorite baseball players, but I came late to Johan Santana. I’m New York oriented, so I barely pay attention to the pitchers who are not playing here – I’m not checking all the baseball results every day in the Daily News. I remember Seaver, Ryan, McGraw from the early Mets and all […]

Brian Costa of the Star-Ledger just posted an update to his blog about the Mets being on the field for some early batting practice at Citizen’s Bank Park. Nothing big really, every team on any given day will have a few players go out and take in some early swings before the mandatory reporting time. […]

Only Winning Can Keep Attendance From Declining

An article by posted on April 23, 2010 0 Comments

So here we are fifteen games into the season with a 7-9 record and finally winning our first series of the season against the Cubs. Optimists (a club of which I was a charter member) are still under the impression that the season is still in hand and that only minor changes are needed right now. While others […]
