Straight from the New York Mets… The Mets have named Lou DePaoli executive vice president and chief revenue officer, a newly created position within the organization. DePaoli, who has been executive vice president and chief marketing officer for the Pirates since 2008, will be responsible for leading the strategic development and management of all revenue generation for the Mets beginning July 22. “This is an exciting time to join the Mets,” DePaoli said in a statement. […]
When the day arrives, and it’s clear Zack Wheeler has “figured it out,” this will be the day he will appreciate most. New York Mets fans will prefer to reflect on Wheeler’s first MLB start, six shutout innings vs. Atlanta, but Sunday will be one of those starts that will educate the Mets rookie most as he moves forward. The Mets and Wheeler were roughed up by the Washington Nationals 13-2 Sunday at Citi Field. […]
There really is something special about going to Citi Field on a day when Matt Harvey pitches. If the Mets are in the midst of yet another miserable season, you’d never know it. Walking into Friday’s game, the excitement and buzz over the main attraction was truly overwhelming. Families and friends all bustled towards the main gate eager to be seated and ready for the game’s very first heated pitch. A simple glance at the […]
With a pair of home runs that spelled the difference in the Mets 4-3 rubber match win in Atlanta, David Wright has now reached double digit home runs on the year and leads the team in almost every offensive category while putting on a show in the field. In the past two weeks, Wright has been particularly locked in, tallying seven multi-hit games, just in time for the final weeks of the All-Star Game voting. […]
The season is underway for the Brooklyn Cyclones, but not too long ago, it seemed that the start of the season could be in jeopardy. That’s because Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the natural grass playing surface at MCU Park in Coney Island as well as affecting the clubhouses and offices in the stadium. Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly, who is entering his third season at Brooklyn’s helm, was very emotional when speaking to the media […]
Last Sunday, it seemed the Mets were destined to continue their trek down a road they were all too familiar with. After eight innings of unimpressive play, the Mets were about to add to their losing streak. They had dropped their four previous match-ups and the offensively lacking team was two outs away from making it five. That’s when the recently recalled Kirk Nieuwenhuis gave the Mets the perfect Father’s Day gift. Down two runs, […]
Just before the season started, Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing, was kind enough to send me out a copy of his new book, The Happiest Recap : First Base 1962-1973. It’s the first of four volumes chronicling the rich fifty year history of the New York Mets, told only the way you would expect from Greg – by recounting the team’s most memorable wins. That’s right, this is a win-by-win accounting of all those enduring […]
Even with the new turf field, Brooklyn Cyclones’ opening night was postponed due to rain. But even so, the players wore special blue jerseys to honor the area of the metro area affected by Hurricane Sandy. Instead of the player’s name, the words “Breezy Point,” “East Rockaway ” and Coney Island, as well as the other areas, appeared on their backs. Some of the jerseys were raffled off to fans after the game was called, […]
Fred Wilpon spoke with Steven Marcus of Newsday on Monday and said he is confident in Sandy Alderson’s plan for the Mets. The Mets owner added that things will improve now that the big unproductive contracts are coming off the books. “We’re coming to the end of the time when we have had an overhang of players who got hurt or didn’t play well, and I think that Sandy Alderson and his staff have a plan.” “I […]
