Looks like Reggie Jackson and his soon to be released auto-biography will be hitting the ground running as the Hall of Famer leaves no stones uncovered as he seeks to dispel some of the bad raps against him through his career as a player. The New York Post shared an exclusive excerpt from the book in which Jackson accuses the Mets of racism for opting to select Steve Chilcott instead of him with the first […]
Carlos Beltran told Mike Puma of the NY Post that he wouldn’t be against a return to the Mets when he becomes a free agent this offseason. “Maybe I’ll see you, maybe I won’t,” Beltran said laughing when asked about a return to the Mets. “I’m going to listen to everybody and we’ll see what happens.” According to sources, Beltran spoke with Mets COO Jeff Wilpon at the All-Star Game in July, and the two […]
Below are several memorable moments during Mike Piazza’s Mets tenure. May 22, 1998 – Acquired by the Mets from the Florida Marlins in exchange for minor leaguers Preston Wilson, Ed Yarnall and Geoff Goetz. May 23, 1998 – Makes his Mets debut at Shea Stadium, going 1-4 with an RBI double in a 3-0 win over Milwaukee.

Today’a announcement that catching prospect Kevin Plawecki would be promoted to Double-A Binghamton is going to make one particular person very happy – B-Mets manager, Pedro Lopez, who thirsts for the Eastern League Championship. Lopez had a taste of championship baseball in his mouth and was hungry for more. Last winter, Lopez got his first crack at managing a winter baseball team in his homeland of Puerto Rico. With Lopez’s leadership, The Criollos de Caguas survived […]
As we all know, the Mets were created fill the gap left after the departure of the Giants and the Dodgers from the city of New York following the 1957 season. In the four year period before the advent of the Amazin’s, Gotham’s National League fans were left to follow their teams as best they could from afar (remember, no cable TV at this time nor webcasts, and radio coverage was spotty at best if […]
TUG McGRAW: Coined one of the best slogans ever. As far as team slogans go, the 1973 Mets’ rallying cry “Ya Gotta Believe’’ may not rank with Knute Rockne’s “Win one for the Gipper,’’ but it stood the test of time, lasting far longer than Reingold’s “Ten Minute Head.’’ Had it been a movie, the late and great Roger Ebert would have given it a thumbs down for it’s corniness. Going into the season, the […]
MAYS: ENDURING IMAGE OF A FORGOTTEN TEAM The Mets have made four World Series appearances, with each of those seasons and Octobers giving us cherished memories. But, only one – the nearly forgotten 1973 team, with the still memorable rallying cry of “Ya Gotta Believe,’’ – identifies with the tumultuous ride this franchise has been on since its birth as the replacement child for the kids New York really loved – the Dodgers and Giants. […]
“Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.” – Yogi Berra Everyone loves a good “Yogism.” The funny thing about that one in particular, is that it makes absolutely no sense, and yet it makes perfect sense at the same time. Yogi’s math didn’t add up, but he was definitely on to something. Psychologists are more convinced than ever that our lives gravitate toward the directions of our most dominant thoughts. In […]
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. […]
