An article by posted on October 1, 2009 0 Comments

Being a Mets fan is hard in general. Try being a Mets fan in Florida. You have idiots in Red Sox shirts come up to you and say, “What happened to you guys?” You have Marlins fans that didn’t show up to Dolphin…err…Land Shark Stadium came up to you and use expletives and lack the […]

One year ago today, on September 28, 2008, the Mets played their last game at Shea Stadium.  A day that fans were hoping to celebrate a playoff spot ended with a sad goodbye to the season and the ballpark.  I wasn’t writing for MMO back then, so I never got a chance to share my […]

The home team was playing their last game in their ballpark this season.  They were fighting for their playoff lives after losing the Friday opener before coming back to win the Saturday game.  It was a Mets-Marlins matchup.  Sound familiar? Just as the Marlins took two out of three to keep the Mets out of […]

The air is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter as the horsehide is being replaced by the pigskin.  It sure felt like football was in the air at Land Shark Stadium in Miami Saturday night.  The Dolphins’ end zone was visible near the right field warning track (prompting Gary Cohen to exclaim “he […]

Welcome To [Insert Name Here] Stadium

As the Mets continue their three game series against the Marlins in Florida, I decided to do a little research of past Marlins/Dolphins stadiums. Dolphin Stadium, as most of us are use to calling the home of the Marlins and Dolphins, was originated in 1984 and was called that until 1987. Later in 1987 it […]

No Johan, No Win; Marlins Defeat Mets 2-1

On a night when Johan Santana was supposed to take the mound, Nelson Figueroa stepped into his shoes.  The rest of the team paid tribute to Johan by doing what they do best in his starts; not scoring.  They played a close game, but ultimately fell a run short, dropping the opener of the nine-game […]

As if the news that Jeff Francoeur tore a ligament in his thumb after making a spectacular catch yesterday weren’t bad enough, Jerry Manuel just announced during the post game conference that Johan Santana has been experiencing “some discomfort” in his left pitching elbow. Due to this, Santana will not make his start tomorrow against […]

For as bad as the Mets have looked at times this season (and I have advocated blowing up the team or just not paying attention to them anymore), it’s almost miraculous that they are not worse than three games under .500 and 6 ½ games out of first place.  When you think about the lousy […]
