Happy Birthday to Number 41, George Thomas Seaver! Tom Seaver celebrates his 65th birthday today, and I wanted to thank him for all the amazin’ memories he has given Mets fans in the last five decades. Even today, when Tom graces us with an appearance in the broadcast booth or in an on the field celebration, he still charms us with the same style, charisma and class he had when he was one of the most intimidating and dominating […]
The inaugural season for Citi Field ends in a few weeks and to say the least it was a very disappointing first year for the Mets new ballpark. At the start of the 2009 season I was hoping that with a new ballpark that had not witness disappointments over the last couple of years the slate would be clean and we could start making new histories for the new ballpark. Unfortunately for us the memories […]
On a star-studded evening when the Mets celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Miracle Mets bringing home the franchise’s first World Championship, the 2009 Mets could not provide an amazin’ finish of their own as the bullpen spoiled a surprisingly good performance by Tim Redding. The Phillies were able to overcome being stymied by Redding through the first five innings and punished the Mets’ bullpen for four runs, eventually defeating the 2009 Miracle Whip […]
This week, Sports Illustrated magazine has come out with their annual “Where Are They Now” issue. There are two articles in the issue that are so good, I feel the need to comment on them. Article number 1 deals with the most special of all the Met teams, the 1969 World Champions. In the article there is a picture of Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan wearing Mets jackets (Ryan even has a Met on). Maybe […]
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. But I cant recall a season as perplexing as this one. We have played 64 games. The end of June is quickly approaching and before we know it, we’ll be at the All-Star Break. However, I have to admit, I don’t know what […]
The Mets get set to rebound from a pretty bad week of baseball tonight, when they take on the Baltimore Orioles. Mike Pelfrey (4-2, 4.68 ERA) Pelfrey was locked in for the first six innings against the Phillies on Wednesday, allowing two hits and one run. Things unraveled in the seventh, though; he surrendered three hits before being removed. All three runners scored, eliminating Pelfrey’s chance for a fifth win. Now, Pelfrey makes his first […]
Earlier today, Rob (aka Tie Dyed) penned a great piece that looked back on that ill-fated day when the Mets traded “The Franchise” Tom Seaver to the Cincinnati Reds. Here is some video where Mike Douglas interviews Tom Seaver and they discuss that trade and the events that led up to it. Enjoy this vintage video…
2009 marks the 40 year anniversary of our first World Championship. With today’s article and continuing through the summer I will pay tribute to some of the heroes of that 69 team. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy challenged America. He insisted that by the end of the decade, we put a man on the moon and return him safely to earth. Kennedy’s idea was outlandish and considered completely and utterly impossible. However, on July […]
