New Neighbors for Mets?

Matthew Artus of Always Amazin’ reports that the Mets could have new neighbors – replacing the “iron triangle” surrounding Citi Field.

LIFE has published never-before-seen photos of the 1969 World Series. Hat tip to Joe Budd of Amazin’ Avenue.

Ronan Tynan has been banned from singing at Yankee Stadium for making an anti-semitic comment overheard by a neighbor in an apartment building. I imagine he won’t be getting any gigs at Citi Field, either.

Adam Rubin suggests that Manny Acta (aka “Connie Mackta”) could be a candidate for the third base coaching job. Maybe Willie Randolph will come back, too, to work with the infielders.

Kerel Cooper at OnTheBlack ponders whether the Mets should sign Xavier Nady this winter.

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.

    I’ve been following the Iron Triangle bit for a while. The city is facing stiff resistance from nascent community groups opposed to eminent domain, city-enforced “blight”, and general bullying from Bloomberg-backed developers to get them off their properties and out of their businesses. An interesting story, but like the proposed Atlantic Yards and Hudson Yards, I highly doubt that Bloomberg and his crew can keep their hardons from fizzling when push comes to shove.
