“You judge a player not when he’s going good, but when he’s going bad.” – Keith Hernandez Hernandez said that Friday night, as the Mets were taking on the Phillies in Philadelphia. Truer words couldn’t have been spoken and I believe you can correlate that advice and replace a singular player, with a team. A […]

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 […]

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 […]

We might know more about one of the Mets’ key second-half questions tonight, which is: Who is the real Mike Pelfrey? At one time, Pelfrey was 9-1 and cruising toward the All-Star Game.

In the most emotionally charged scene in the movie ‘Tombstone’ Wyatt Earp, played brilliantly by Kurt Russell, screams to Ike Clanton, ‘You tell ‘em I’m comin! And Hell’s comin’ with me!’ When the Mets headed north from Florida and embarked on the 2010 season, none of us were optimistic. By the time Spring Training ended […]

The All-Star game is behind us, and I’d like to thank Brian McCann for the game-winning hit that will give the Mets home field advantage in the World Series. You think that’s far-fetched?  Well, it’s not.  The Mets are just 4 games back of Atlanta and have a lot to be optimistic about.  Carlos Beltran […]

“It was a beautiful thing to observe, all 36 oars working in unison.’’ – late Cardinals announcer Jack Buck quipping he had seen George Steinbrenner’s yacht. It is a timeless quote about a timeless subject, George M. Steinbrenner, the demonstrative, cantankerous and blustery owner of the New York Yankees, who died today of a heart […]

When I first heard rumbling during Spring Training that pitching phenom prospect Jenrry Mejia may be brought up with the big club to make Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya look good…erm, uh…I mean of course to get Mejia adjusted to major league hitting, well, I was dead set against the idea.  See, while the Mets […]

The Mets are going to be playing for first place this weekend.  Not against the Phillies, but against a resurgent Braves team that is making it feel like the early part of the decade when these two teams were battling for NL East dominance.  And if Jonathan Niese and the Mets can take the rubber […]
