It’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Every year they’re fighting for a World Series crown. If they don’t make it, they go out and spend millions of dollars to bring in players who will help the franchise achieve its goal of a championship. And if it doesn’t work that year, they’ll repeat the process until they get it right. On this Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for a variety of things including a great family, friends […]
Rounding The Bases is back… As we did before, we’ll highlight some of the must-read posts from the Mets beat writers, take a cruise around the Mets blogosphere, check in on our enemies, and have a little fun while we’re at it. MMO Instant Replay Connor O’Brien dished out his report cards for the Mets infielders this week and gives Josh Thole a big fat D. “Josh Thole has not become the player we thought […]
The New York Post’s Joel Sherman wrote that the Mets should look to sign catcher Russell Martin if the Yankees decide to let him walk at the end of the season. Sherman said that Martin is already used to playing in New York and that the Mets are “desperate to add power, and Martin’s 21 homers were eighth among catchers in the majors this season.” You can look at Martin’s gritty attitude and intangibles and the […]
I love beating the Yankees. For almost the entire year, Yankee fans are on top. They have memories of championship stories, epic stories of playoff wins, and an unbreakable confidence in their franchise, all things that I, as a 15 year-old Mets fan, don’t have. It makes me sick to my stomach sometimes how spoiled many Yankee fans are, especially the younger ones who didn’t even endure the very few years in which the Yankees […]
I still remember the day Jose Reyes began his Mets career. June 10, 2003. It was my 20th birthday. Reyes was 19, one day shy of turning 20 himself. He was the first major leaguer I ever saw who was born after me. This would become part of his lure to me and my younger brother, as we would always finish off his list of accomplishments with “dude, he’s younger than me!” Truth be told […]
Moneyball tells the fascinating tale of Billy Beane’s ingenious use of statistical analysis in order to assemble a winning ballclub without the luxury of a large payroll. Through statistics such as OBP, SLG, and a slew of other stats, Beane was able to snatch ballplayers with “hidden virtues” up for a song, creating a team on a $35 million budget just as successful, if not better than the richest teams in the game. Beane’s A’s had become the very […]
I like to think that I know a lot about Baseball. I know more then some, less then others. One thing I am sure of, however, is the that the season is 162 games. This is one fact that appears to have been forgotten by the 2010 Mets. The one constant theme of the Mets has been we’ve always been the underdog. And it’s one of those traits that endears this team to us. Even […]
I have to admit I was a bit frightened by the schedule when I saw the Mets having to face the Yankees and Phillies back to back. Sure, they would be home, where they have a stellar record (17-9 as of today), but they were facing the two teams that met in the World Series seven months ago. Taking two of three from the Yanks was nice, but RA Dickey baffling the Phils with his […]
Folks, I don’t live in New York anymore, and haven’t since 1992. Sure, I can get all my Mets news online and I can watch and listen to games online or on cable. But nothing beats living there–the talk, the camaraderie, the print newspapers that you can read with two hands and two eyes (unless you’re Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba). So sometimes I feel disconnected and rely on friends or my dad to fill […]
