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 […]
The Magic is Back! That was the Mets promotional slogan in the spring of 1980 after Nelson Doubleday Jr. and Fred Wilpon had purchased New York’s National League franchise. From a business standpoint, the new Met owners bought in at a perfect time. The Mets were in shambles, last place finishers in three consecutive seasons prior to the purchase. Acting on the advice of several baseball people from outside the organization, the first decision the new owners made was to hire […]
With the loss in game one of yesterday’s doubleheader with the Miami Marlins, the Mets clinched their 5th straight losing season. This shouldn’t come as a shock since it has happened many times in the past - from the newly minted team of the ’60′s to the “Franchiseless” Mets of the late ’70′s and early ’80′s. Hell even the teams from the Mid ’90s as well as the ’02-’04 seasons were exercises in futility. So I figured […]
On Sunday, Bobby Parnell notched his sixth save of the season, recording the final three outs of the Mets’ 4-3 victory over the Cubs. With the save, Parnell now has 20 in his six-year career with the Mets. Now that may not seem like much, but it does give Parnell a special title. Tell me, my fellow Mets fans. Do you know which homegrown Met has the most saves in team history? That would be […]
If Shakespeare were to write a play about the state of the Mets these days, it would probably be titled “Much Ado About Valdespin” as that’s about all anyone has to talk about outside of the largely dismal performance of the team between the lines. Inasmuch as the role young number 1 plays on the team is largely limited to that of utility player/pinch hitter, I wonder if the fuss being kicked up over his […]
Championship seasons are invariably marked by certain games and plays that are later tabbed as “turning points” for posterity. For the 1986 edition of the Mets, their turning point may well have occurred in only the 6th game of the season when, after winning their first two contests but dropping the next three, the team sat a game under .500. Although another 157 games remained to be played, many fans and even tabloid back pages cried […]
Shannon Shark of Mets Police came across another one of those all too familiar big bloopers from the Mets front office, who continue to maintain a stronghold on their title of “The Most Inept Front Office In Baseball”. Take a look at one of the newest additions to the Mets Fan Walk for the 2010 season… Looks fantastic huh? Over a dozen of these brand new Fan Bricks honoring some of the greatest and most memorable […]
A friend passed this clip along to me way back in April, and I was going to write about it then, but never got around to it. Well, now that it’s the off season and we are all stewing in the aftermath of another failed Mets’ season, I thought it would be a good time to share this for a good laugh as well as a good feeling of ’86 nostalgia. The clip is from […]
