Well, as we all know, our beloved New York Mets have missed the playoffs for the fifth straight season. I’m not sure about many of you, but even with the Mets done for the year, I still watch a ton of postseason baseball. There have been some great games so far, and it’s looking like the postseason will be even more exciting in the championship round. So basically, all this fluff leads me to the […]
Question: What do Doc Gooden, Darryl Strawberry, David Cone, Jesse Orosco, Bobby Ojeda and Ron Swoboda all have in common? Answer: They all played for the Yankees. After these individuals won a special place in our hearts forever, they all wound up playing for that other team, wearing those stupid pin stripes. Doc pitched a no-hitter in 96, a decade after he won a World Series ring with us. In 1999, David Cone pitched only the […]
I was about 6 years old when my father threatened to throw me out of the house. The reason was simple. I told him I was going to be a Yankees fan. It was the early 1970’s and I knew nothing about Baseball. But still, I was going to root for the Yankees. Why? As my dad watched the local news one night the sports came on. I was close by, doing whatever a typical […]
I grew up in an era when interleague play was a pipe dream, or a gleam in Bud Selig’s eye. But I always loved watching the World Series when a National League team would face off against an American League squad, and I also remember going to the Mayor’s Trophy Game, an exhibition between the Mets and Yankees each year that didn’t amount to much because both teams let their scrubs play. So I was […]
It looks like the Yankees are set to make the loudest noise in Indianapolis since the 93rd running of the Indy 500 last May 24th. A rumored three team deal between the Tigers, Yankees and D’backs is now official according to several sources. Here is what it looks like: The Yankees get Curtis Granderson, the D’Backs get Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy, and the Tigers get Max Scherzer, Daniel Schlereth, Austin Jackson, and Phil Coke. […]
There’s not much to be happy about this post season, especially where Mets fans are concerned. We have had to endure a World Series that was the culmination of our worst nightmares. No other matchup could have been worse for us than the one that is currently playing out in Citizens Bank Park. The grizzly matchup between the Yankees and Phillies has even spawned hundreds of Mets blogs advocating who we should root for as if […]
And yet it seems that we’re in the same spot. October 17, 1999. Ten years ago last Saturday. Robin Ventura gave Mets fans one of the more unusual defining moments in team history. A “grand slam single” in the bottom of the 15th inning to break a tied game and send the Mets to Game 6 to face the Atlanta Braves one more time. As fate would have it, the Mets would fall short in […]
Back in August I posted here that the NY Mets should look to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as their blueprint for future success in building a franchise. (Shameless Plug: http://metsmerizedonline.com/2009/08/angels-should-be-the-mets-blueprint.html) While I am still largely on my Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim bandwagon, especially with their comeback victory against Boston in Game 3 and now the Angels and Demons matchup of Yankees/Angels on the horizon, I have to come to terms with the […]
In what turned out to be the one and only opportunity for the Mets to breakthrough and rough up C.C. Sabathia, the Mets blew a golden opportunity. Actually, let me clarify that and say Jerry Manuel blew a golden opportunity. In the fifth inning, after Gary Sheffield broke up Sabathia’s perfect game with a lead-off solo homerun, Sabathia was rattled and after singles by Fernando Tatis (who is finally hot again) and Nick Evans (will Murphy […]
