Mets To Make Citi More Metsmerized!

An article by posted on August 13, 2009 0 Comments

It figures that the Mets would suddenly pick a random weekend in August to suddenly decide that they want to make Citi Field more Mets-centric or as we like to say, MetsMerized! With the team continuing to struggle and attendance sagging, the Mets are slashing ticket prices and giving Mets fans a new reason to […]

Mets beat writer Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post reported a little while ago in his blog that Bernie Madoff stole $700 million from the Wilpons.  That is a lot higher than the originally reported $300 million that the Wilpon’s allegedly lost.  Since the scandal broke late last year the Wilpons have not publicly […]

The Mets go into tonight’s nationally broadcast game having already lost the season series to the Yankees. With Livan Hernandez taking on Chien-Ming Wang, we should have a chance. Key word: should. With the recent luck of this team, we will probably embarrass ourselves while making Wang look like Cy Young. The Mets are coasting […]

As we reach another Father’s Day, let’s take a break from discussing the lack of run support for Johan Santana and the Three Fernandos breakup tour to reflect on a special man in our lives.  He is the man who more than likely showed us how to throw our first curveball, took us to our […]

There Will Be More Gut Wrenching Losses…

An article by posted on June 13, 2009 0 Comments

Howie Rose called it the worst regular season loss in franchise history and that none ever hurt this bad. He should know, he’s seen them all. I find it amazing that not one Mets player expressed outrage last night… Certainly, you could tell by the looks on their faces that they were shell-shocked, but not one […]

Eating Raul (Ibanez)

An article by posted on June 4, 2009 0 Comments

Forgive me for being a backseat general manager, but after ever Raul Ibanez home run, do you cringe a little like me? When I perused the market of free-agent corner this winter his name jumped out because of his consistency and veteran leadership (all reports are he is well-liked and respected by his brethren). His […]

I could spend the next 20 minutes writing about the Mets woes and how to fix them … but I won’t. Instead, I’d like to focus on something interesting and fun. As discussed on Wednesday’s telecast, the Mets will no longer be sporting the black “New York” jerseys. From now on, when the team wears […]
