For the last 4 years we have been hearing about Fernando “F-Mart” Martinez.  The 16 year old was praised as the future of the New York Mets.  F-Mart was the 5 tool player that the Mets were going to make into their next superstar.  There were growing pains of course, the last couple of seasons […]

In 2007 – for the first time in my life I fulfilled a lifelong dream and became a Mets season ticket holder.  Some friends and I ended up splitting 2 seats 4 ways – and visions of playoff games after the stunning near miss of 2006 danced in my head. The last time I had […]

09′ Mets Motto – We’re Not Gonna Lay Down And Die!

An article by posted on June 23, 2009 0 Comments

There are two things a ballclub that has been decimated by injuries can do: Slide their gloves back on their handlebars and peddle home dejectedly, or adopt an “us against the world” mentality. Last night, the Mets showed the latter. And, why not? What do they have to lose now that all is lost? The […]

The Cardinals and Mets Rivalry

An article by posted on June 23, 2009 0 Comments

With all the injuries to the 2009 Mets reminding me of the 1987 Mets, and with the St. Louis Cardinals in town for a big four game series, it got me thinking about the great Met-Cardinals rivalry of the mid 1980′s. To borrow a line from Keith Hernandez “You kids out there who are new […]

As we reach another Father’s Day, let’s take a break from discussing the lack of run support for Johan Santana and the Three Fernandos breakup tour to reflect on a special man in our lives.  He is the man who more than likely showed us how to throw our first curveball, took us to our […]

Adios To The Three Fernandos

When we last left the Three Fernandos, they were defeating the evil forces of El Guapo (Derek Jeter), his right-hand man Jefe (Alex Rodriguez) and his left-hand man Castillo (Mark Teixeira).  The Fernandos were able to thwart the Yankee bandits by confusing them into thinking they were everywhere.  Dressed in matching Mets jerseys, the firepower […]

Shades of 62? Or Shades of 73?

An article by posted on June 19, 2009 0 Comments

There have been seasons where everything seemed to fall into place. There have also been seasons when we just went through the motions of a seemingly irrelevant and rigorous 162 game schedule.

When The Orioles Were Good

An article by posted on June 16, 2009 0 Comments

To a lot of fans who are new to baseball, the Baltimore Orioles are known as a team that plays in a pretty cool looking park, but always finishes in the second half the American League’s Eastern Division. It wasn’t always that way. Back in the middle 1970′s when I first started getting into baseball, […]

Before I begin, I’d like to thank my colleague, Rob (Tie Dyed) for writing an exceptional piece on Tom Seaver and for inspiring me to write this blog.  I’d like to consider it a companion piece to his blog.  Thanks, Rob! June 15.  It’s a date that many Mets fans will remember as the day […]
