Paul McCartney has unveiled the tracklisting for his new live album and DVD, “Good Evening New York City”. Of course the concert was a reunion of sorts with the Mets and their ballpark. The first time Paul McCartney appeared at Shea Stadium he and the rest of his band introduced the rest of the country to the Beatles in their first ever US outdoor concert. The new album is expected to be released on November 23, and was [...]
The Mets’ inaugural season at CitiField has mercifully come to an end. It was quite a mixed bag at the new CitiField. The stadium is one thing, and the performance of the Mets at their new home is a story of its own. The Mets home opener at their spanking new ball park was on Monday April 13th. The Mets were behind, when Wright hit a game tying three run HR. The Mets eventually lost [...]
Both Jason Bay and Matt Holiday’s season is now officially over as their teams were eliminated over the weekend, they now have a lot to consider as they are going to be free agents for the first time in both of their careers. They were successful with both their clubs this year and have been favorites over the years for their offensive numbers during their careers. These two outfielders are the best 2 left fielders [...]
Earlier today, the Mets issued an official press release announcing that season ticket prices would be cut by more than 10%, while some select locations would see a decrease of over 20%. There would be no price increase on any seat at Citi Field for those who cannot afford the luxury of season tickets (i.e. 99.9% of us). This is great news for season ticket holders, but the Mets did not say anything about decreases [...]
The inaugural season for Citi Field ends in a few weeks and to say the least it was a very disappointing first year for the Mets new ballpark. At the start of the 2009 season I was hoping that with a new ballpark that had not witness disappointments over the last couple of years the slate would be clean and we could start making new histories for the new ballpark. Unfortunately for us the memories [...]
I came across an interesting read last week by Kevin Kernan of the NY Post. Kernan begins by pondering what the Mets will do in the draft now that they will have a top first round pick. He even wonders if there’s any chance that super prospect Bryce Harper falls into the Mets lap because teams will be reluctant to the Scott Boras client the $25 million dollar it might take to sign him. Wouldn’t [...]
I just looked through some notes of mine from the start of the season, and found this article previewing the NL East by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. Here is an excerpt of how he felt about the Mets heading into 2009: Two years, two chokes. The Mets have gotten good at this. And, sure, the bullpen was a big issue, so seeing J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez in the eighth and ninth innings will [...]

I know we still have almost a month to go before the 2009 regular baseball season is over but lets face facts the Mets season ended in July. It’s time for the Mets and us the fans to look to 2010. This past week Josh Thole joined the Mets for their series in Colorado. Thole had his first major league game last Thursday going 2-for-5 on the day and stole 2nd base. He had a [...]
According to a report that appeared in the NY Post yesterday, the Mets’ new $850 million stadium is starting to break down at an alarming rate. Apparently, even though Citi Field is barely one season old, it has seen more than it’s fair share of breakdowns, leaks, and a myriad of other problems which recently included water damage to several luxury suites — including comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s. Sources said other problems have turned Mets maintenance [...]
