Mets at the Movies

Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 21st), you can watch the Mets vs. Braves on big screen … REALLY big screen.

The game will be presented in high definition at three Clearview Cinema movie theater locations: Chelsea Cinemas (Manhattan), Parsippany Cinemas (New Jersey), and Port Washington Cinemas (Long Island). Tickets are $12 and are on sale now at (718) 507-TIXX or visit

Fans in attendance will participate in traditional Shea Stadium in-game activities including t-shirt launches, lucky fan giveaways, and other Shea favorites recreating the Mets ballpark experience … minus the sausage sandwiches and beer. Supposedly, Mr. Met will be there as well, but I’m not sure how he’s getting to all three locations in the same evening (unless they have two fakes?).

The Mets will hold two more “Mets at the Movies” events on July 17 and August 27, though the locations have yet to be determined.

As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
