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 […]
What a difference a week and a half can make. Just ten days ago, we were all throwing stones, pointing fingers and placing blame. Omar should be fired. Wright should be traded. Delgado should be benched. Reyes should stop smiling so much. Things seemingly have changed almost overnight. The same team that was 10-13 and going nowhere has won 8 out of 9 games leaving the Phillies, Marlins and Braves looking up at us for […]
Check out these great tributes to Shea Stadium that are located in the parking lot of Citi Field. These gorgeous plaques mark the spots of first base, second base, third base, home plate and the pitchers mound at Shea Stadium. Nice job by the Wilpons for preserving a little bit of our former and much beloved home. Keith Hernandez should sign this in gold! Let’s get Fonzie to sign this one! We might have to […]

Ask that same fan what season was Seaver’s greatest and most likely they’ll say it was 1969 when he compiled a 25-7 record while leading the Mets to their first World Series title. After being treated to another scintillating performance by Johan Santana last night, I felt like we weren’t just witnessing a pitcher on the […]
Here are just a few of things the Mets and New York have planned for tonight’s Home Opener at Citi Field. 1. The Empire State Building will be lit up in honor of the Mets tonight and feature the team colors, blue and orange, to mark the special occasion. Look for the awesome spectacle to begin just before game time and last until midnight. (heck yeah!) 2. Two of our all time greatest Mets will throw […]
The Mets have have a stellar 30-17 record in Opening Days in their 47 year history. Eleven of those wins came from Hall of Famer Tom “The Franchise” Seaver. What a stud! And let’s not forget Doctor K, Dwight Gooden, who won eight Opening Day contests himself. Maybe his nephew Gary Sheffield will help the Mets win tonight’s opener? Stranger things have happened… With Johan Santana set to take the mound for his second consecutive […]
