This is a bittersweet moment for me, as this is my last column on MetsMerized, at least as it stands now. I’m moving on to pursue another opportunity that includes covering the Mets, so I’ll still be involved in the scene. But I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe, the other staff writers and all of you readers who made the last 15 months or so an absolute pleasure for me. I know […]
The All-Star game is behind us, and I’d like to thank Brian McCann for the game-winning hit that will give the Mets home field advantage in the World Series. You think that’s far-fetched? Well, it’s not. The Mets are just 4 games back of Atlanta and have a lot to be optimistic about. Carlos Beltran returns tomorrow in San Fran, and a lot has gone right for the Mets without him. That’s not to say […]
I grew up in an era when interleague play was a pipe dream, or a gleam in Bud Selig’s eye. But I always loved watching the World Series when a National League team would face off against an American League squad, and I also remember going to the Mayor’s Trophy Game, an exhibition between the Mets and Yankees each year that didn’t amount to much because both teams let their scrubs play. So I was […]
Any day now, pitchers and catchers will begin reporting to spring training all across Florida and Arizona. In a few weeks, all teams, including our Mets, will begin their spring training games, and then less than two months from now, Johan Santana will likely be throwing the first live pitch for the Mets since last October. Usually around this time of year, once the Super Bowl has been played and sports docket is less than […]
Mark McGwire’s admission that he used steroids is both a black eye and a small weight off Major League Baseball’s collective shoulder at the same time. I mean, this wasn’t something we all didn’t know, but at the same time, it’s important for guys like Mac to come clean. After thrilling us with the Great Home Run Chase of 1998, we were owed the truth. I’m looking in your direction, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, […]
Mets fans were not pleased with the opponents in this year’s World Series. So much has been written on who we should be rooting for. Between the Phillies and the Yankees, which is the lesser of two evils. I started out rooting for the Phillies. But after their game one win, I started worrying about a four game sweep and how badly that would sit with Mets fans. Having to deal with the Phillies repeating […]
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 the wheels came off following the all-star break (and I know many of you are with me on that!). And […]
There’s not much to be happy about this post season, especially where Mets fans are concerned. We have had to endure a World Series that was the culmination of our worst nightmares. No other matchup could have been worse for us than the one that is currently playing out in Citizens Bank Park. The grizzly matchup between the Yankees and Phillies has even spawned hundreds of Mets blogs advocating who we should root for as if […]
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 that day because of a Jewish holiday. (Koufax still pitched since it was the day before Yom Kippur.) I was […]
