Look Who’s Smiling! The New York Mets just posted the first picture of Curtis Granderson sporting his new Mets cap and I gotta tell you, this is very exciting. Sandy Alderson: “We’re looking forward to having Curtis for the next few years.” Granderson: “I’m excited to begin my career with the New York Mets. Top to bottom the Mets are a great organization” Granderson is donning his Mets jersey and is at podium with Jeff […]
The Houston Astrodome is coming down as we speak. The following is just one of the memorable games the New York Mets played at historic dome. The original New York Mets were more often described as a circus act than a competitive professional baseball team. Fans flocked to the Polo Grounds, and later Shea Stadium, to catch a glimpse of Casey Stengel, or maybe Marv Throneberry miss touching a base running from first to third. […]
When the news broke late Friday morning that the Mets had finally came to an agreement with outfielder, Curtis Granderson I admit I did the proverbial “happy dance” while driving in my car. Yes Granderson is not the “savior” that the Mets need to help this team escape from mediocrity as well as ineptitude. But his signing is a start and I do agree with Daily News columnist, Andy Martino, that his signing is the […]
In an interview with The Beanball, Mets reliever Vic Black revealed he was slightly heartbroken when the Pittsburgh Pirates traded him last season. What was your reaction when you were traded by the organization that drafted you to the New York Mets? Ben, honestly I was slightly heart broken. In a sense, I felt as though I had been put up for adoption. But like I’ve explained to many people, the “family” that receives you […]
Winter 2004. It was a great time to be a Mets fan. As cameras clicked away and members of the press took their seats, all eyes were focused on the recently acquired outfielder. With Jeff Wilpon on one side and wife Jessica on the other, Carlos Beltran donned a Mets cap for the very first time. Suddenly, General Manager Omar Minaya appeared. He rode on to the stage on a tricycle. Dressed as a clown […]
I have been a Mets fan since my birth 41 years ago, and in that time I have seen more than a handful of highs – and more than my share of lows. I have lived through Frank Taveras and Alex Trevino, Bob Bailor and Bruce Bosclair, Rich Rodriguez and Tony Tarasco, and now Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada. This is why whenever somebody looks at me cross-eyed when they find out that I am […]
Dan Martin of the New York Post spoke by phone to David Wright who told him that he’s ready to do his part in talking to free agents who might be interested in coming to Queens. It’s a tough sell, but Wright seems up for the challenge. “I don’t think players are concerned about the financial situation,” Wright said by phone Saturday. “From their perspective, they want to know if we have a chance to win. We haven’t […]
Multiple choice question: What’s the worst, lowest, most humiliating thing you can call a professional athlete in a modern-day locker room? 1. Gay. 2. Girl. 3. N****r. 4. All of the above. If you answered “4″ we have a lovely Jordany Valdespin T-shirt for you, a real beauty with the logos of both the Mets and Pirates on it, a veritable collector’s item commemorating one of the slimiest moments in recent Mets history, when the […]
I wrote a piece last October questioning whether the Mets should take a shot on Grady Sizemore. He should be fully recovered from knee injuries now, and could be signed on a minor league deal. Why not take a shot? I’m not talking about making Sizemore the main signing this off-season, I’m talking about taking a shot on a player that could be had relatively cheap, and potentially be this year’s version of Marlon Byrd. […]
