An article by posted on November 4, 2009 0 Comments

I guess writing for this awesome site has been good for something this off season–it’s forced me to think about the Mets at least once a week.  Because honestly, I haven’t been thinking about them much since their season ended a month ago.  In fact, since I’m being honest, I didn’t watch many games after […]

World Series Memories – What Are Yours?

An article by posted on November 2, 2009 0 Comments

World Series memories are very personal. They don’t have to be about who won and who lost.  One of my first memories of the World Series was in 1963 when the Yankees faced the Dodgers.  In game one, Sandy Koufax dominated, striking out fifteen Yankees.  But what I remember is that I didn’t have school […]

The burning question for Mets fans is who to root for in this year’s World Series, the Yankees or the Phillies? Both are hated, both are outstanding teams replete with thumpers that make Mets fans queasy with envy. While many ruminate on which team to root for, let me simplify the equation, and flip over […]

Throughout our history, we’ve had our fair share of great pitchers. The names Seaver, Gooden and Santana quickly come to mind. However, if there was one game that your life depended on, if you needed a big win, Jerry Koosman should be listed first. The best lefty in team history, Koosman was always capable of […]

Now that we’re deep into the baseball postseason and we Mets fans are enduring a great match up that we frankly all hate in the World Series, I think it’s time to mention two things that MLB needs to work on this off-season. First of all, the umpiring has never been great, but the fact […]

October 27, 1986:  The Dream Has Come True

Two days ago, I wrote about the twenty-third anniversary of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.  Miraculous as that game was, all it did was force a seventh and deciding game.  Do you remember seeing the replay of Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waving for the ball to stay fair in the 1975 World […]
