Here are some Mets thoughts from the afternoon media session from Tuesday’s 23rd annual MLB B.A.T. Dinner. Gary Sheffield Sheffield said it was not difficult for him to retire after his long career, which included a World Series championship in 1997 with the Marlins and hitting his 500th career home run as a Met. “I pretty much did everything I wanted to do on a baseball field,” he said. He has enjoyed spending time playing […]
While the Mets embark upon a future that may not include all-star shortstop and fan favorite Jose Reyes, I can’t help but notice how oddly familiar this all seems. The drama of potentially losing the face of the franchise and the intense media build-up leading up to his final moments, is something that many of us old-timers have seen before. I know that most of you reading this were not even born yet on June 15, […]
In honor of R.A. Dickey’s near no-hitter last night, I decided to dig into our archives and pull out this gem – pitched by Ed Leyro on March 13, 2010. Enjoy reading it! Every young boy with aspirations of being a major league pitcher dreams of tossing a no-hitter. The thrill of recording out #27 before giving up hit #1 is one of the biggest joys in sports. However, this thrill has never been felt […]
Due to the changing nature of Baseball there are certain records which will stand forever. Cy Young’s 511 wins and Walter Johnson’s 113 shutouts come to mind. Nowadays pitchers don’t even toss 113 complete games much less 113 shutouts. Then there are records which were supposed to stand forever but did not, such as Ty Cobb’s 4191 hits. In 1928 Walter Johnson retired with 3508 strikeouts, a record that stood for over 50 years. However, The […]
Elena Gustines of the NY Times passes along the following details of an impromptu sing-along conducted last night by our own Tom Seaver. Mets fans looking for a reason, any reason, to smile these days might consider this: After a charity affair at a Manhattan restaurant Thursday night, Mets Hall of Famer Tom Seaver, having signed countless autographs during the event, encountered still more autograph-seekers outside as he prepared to head back to his hotel. […]
Last week I wrote about how the Mets need to find ways to entice the fans to come out to the ballpark in 2011. Last week I brought up the idea of retiring 17 in honor Keith Hernandez. I thought it would give Mets fans something to look forward to during the long season that 2011 will be and I thought that when looking back on 2011 it would be a fun thing to remember. […]
No I’m not talking about retiring number 17 for Fernando Tatis and the few weeks he produced for the Mets. Before Tatis there was another player for the Mets who wore 17. From June 15, 1983 to October 1, 1989 he wore 17 proudly for the New York Mets. This player won 5 Gold Gloves while he played 1st base. This player was a team captain. This player was a big reason why the Mets […]
Long before he wore a suit and was President of the Texas Rangers, long before he was enshrined in Cooperstown, long before he tossed all those no-hitters and struck out about 5 million batters, Nolan Ryan was a skinny kid with the Mets who was unable to break into our starting rotation. Born on January 31, 1947 in Refugio, TX, his family moved to Alvin when he was 6 weeks old. At age 9, he […]
Lets be honest. We all could have been Yankee fans. We could be wearing Derek Jeter jerseys, praying every night to our God Mickey Mantle and ending all debates with the robotic illogical response, “27 Championships.” But we’re not. We’re Mets fans. And like a marriage, we’re in this for better or worse. Lately, however, it’s becoming hard to remain faithful and to love, honor and cherish this team. Why exactly did we become fans […]
