Let’s all be honest, we knew what this team was before the season even started. Not losing all faith yet, but the Mets may in fact be sellers at the deadline. Recently I was asked if the Mets would be sellers or buyers at the deadline, to which I responded buyers. However that was the optimistic side of me talking. Or maybe it was Sandy repeatedly saying comments like “We’re playing for 2011″. Either way […]
I am going to start this article off by adding the disclaimer that we are still only five games into the season. However, the Mets have gotten off to a quick 3-2 start. The team has looked good with the exception of Mike Pelfrey. It is already obvious that this is a different Mets team than the one we saw last year. Last year’s incarnation of the team would have just laid down and rolled […]
Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey has been the hottest topic among Mets fans/writers over the past few days. Harvey, who was drafted seventh-overall in last season’s draft, will likely begin this season in Single-A Port St. Lucie. He has the stature of a starting pitcher (6-feet, 4-inches tall and weighs 225 pounds) and might have the repertoire, too. Harvey can throw a high-90s fastball, but also mixes in off-speed pitches including a slider, sinker and curve […]

T’was the night before Spring Training and all through the league, Critics were jeering at Freddy’s financial fatigue. But the Mets plan some baseball to see, For an interesting week in Port St. Lucie. Jose Reyes enters his contract year, Looking for the spark once gave pitchers fear. 7-Train can’t wait to hit the track, As he plays for a likely 9-figure pact. Young hotshot Ike is looking to show more, Than his 19 Homers […]
Frank Edwin ‘Tug’ McGraw was a relief pitcher for the New York Mets for 9 seasons. Over that time he compiled 85 saves with a 3.17 ERA. But he is best remembered for a phrase. In 1973, as the Mets were treading water in the NLE basement at the end of August, McGraw coined the slogan ‘Ya Gotta Believe.’ Fox ‘Spooky’ Mulder was a fictitious character played by David Duchovny on ‘The X-Files.’ Mulder firmly […]
Remember 1986? Wasn’t it great? We had Gary and Keith, Doc and Darryl, Lenny and Wally, Mookie and Frank. Frank???? Frank who? Remember the miracle of 1969? What an amazin’ year? Tom and Jerry, Cleon and Agee, Swoboda and Shamsky, Buddy and Johnny. Johnny??? Who the hell was Johnny? The Frank I’m referring to was Mets GM Frank Cashen. The Johnny from 69 was GM Johnny Murphy. Great baseball memories, the common history that we […]
This is a bittersweet moment for me, as this is my last column on MetsMerized, at least as it stands now. I’m moving on to pursue another opportunity that includes covering the Mets, so I’ll still be involved in the scene. But I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe, the other staff writers and all of you readers who made the last 15 months or so an absolute pleasure for me. I know […]
I had thought before the all-star break that the Mets had a realistic shot at taking over first place in the division with a 3-game deficit against the first-place Braves. Of course, that didn’t turn out as planned and we limped into the break 4 games back. Now, with the Mets 1-5 on their western swing and in danger of falling way out of the race by the time they come home, I offer you […]
