Schneider And Castro Platoon Is Catching On

An article by posted on January 4, 2008

The more I think about it, the more I am becoming convinced that our catching situation will be a strength for the Mets in 2008. I was one of Paul Lo Duca’s biggest supporters and rallied hard for the Mets to re-sign him. Now that he is gone, I think I have to admit that […]

Mets Hot Stove: The Suspense is Overwhelming…

An article by posted on November 24, 2007

the turkey has finally been picked to the bone… The annoying relatives have left until next year, dishes have been done and everyone is thankful Uncle Ralph remembered his Beano. It’s true folks, Thanksgiving is over and the nightmare that is Christmas shopping has begun. However, this being MetsMerized and me being a Mets fanatic, […]

Bye Bye Mota, Means Bye Bye Duca

An article by posted on November 24, 2007

In the eyes of Mets fans aplenty, Paul Lo Duca and Guillermo Mota were two different people. As the Rolling Stones once said, "You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might just find that you get what you need." Paul Lo Duca couldn’t wait to re-sign with the Mets. […]

A Postseason Word of Thanks

An article by posted on October 13, 2007

Now that it has been two weeks since the Mets have been *gulp* eliminated from playoff contention and the playoffs are well underway, I feel able to blog with confidence again. As a NY resident for the better part of 30 years, I know that about this time the cold is slowly creeping from bitter […]

Losing Makes Me Snippy

An article by posted on October 4, 2007

Well, here we go, another fall and winter filled with free agents and trade rumors. Granted, part of me always enjoys the off season. Who is going where? Why and for how much? Let me just say that losing that 7 game lead hurt almost as badly as that Yadier Molina home run in the […]

The Most Wonderful Dream

An article by posted on September 28, 2007

Last night I had the most wonderful dream. I was back in New York and at Shea Stadium for the last game of the 2007 World Series. The Mets and Indians had played themselves into a 3- 3 series tie thanks to some late inning heroics by Guillermo Mota, who struck out the side in […]

The Imperfect Champions

An article by posted on September 20, 2007

I think most baseball fans (including me); have a chip on their shoulder concerning their favorite teams (unless they are Skankee fans that believe their team could win a title with one hand tied behind their backs). Every time a bad play is made fans like us automatically assume that the game and even the […]

A Mets Fan in Braves Country

An article by posted on August 20, 2007

Sullivan County, New York is where I was born and raised. Only minutes from the original Woodstock site and 2 hours west of my Graceland. That is, Shea Stadium in Queens, New York. Today, I live in a small town in rural Alabama called Clanton. The area is nice, people are great and the fried […]

Lets Go Mets, Sigh…

An article by posted on August 17, 2007

The game of baseball has always brought me great joy, whether watching our beloved Mets or playing in the backyard. Sadly, that joy seems to be missing from Shea, and has been for a while. In my opinion, it began when Jose Reyes  didn’t run out a ground ball with his usual hustle. Willie Randolph […]

How I “Met” the American Pastime

An article by posted on July 30, 2007

I love New York. No, really, I mean it – I looooove New York. Born in Flushing just minutes from Shea, it was inevitable that I would grow up to be a Mets fan. Dad was a die-hard fan; so was Mom. Both were originally Brooklyn Dodgers fans, growing up in Brooklyn. So it was no […]
