Good news, Mets fans: after being the worst team in MLB in May, the Mets were NOT the worst team in June. In fact, they weren’t even the worst team in the National League. That’s right — the Mets’ 11-17 record in June was a far cry from Colorado’s 8-20. But, the bottom four teams […]
Yeah, I know we’re a week away from the end of June, but it just came to my attention that the Mets were the worst team in MLB in the month of May, with a record of 11-18. I know, I know — “worst” means different things to different people. And few people who are […]
In case you missed it, you really must hear Mike Francesa’s take on the upcoming “sleepover” promotion at Citi Field on July 19th. What the sleepover entails is
First off, I spent a good fifteen 75 minutes trying to decide if the headline should have finished with “strong” or “strongly.” “Strongly” would seem to be correct, but the commonly accepted idiom in everyday American conversation appears to be “strong.” In any case, if the Mets are to have any chance at reaching their […]
Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, right? How about one that sees the Mets moving to Montreal, Citi Field being bulldozed for real estate, and the Wilpons winding up with a Major League in their beloved Brooklyn?
So, when we were told that Terry Collins was “Sandy’s choice” for manager after the 2010 season, we weren’t being lied to — we had wrongly assumed that “Sandy” referred to “Alderson” rather than “Koufax.”
Major League batters have “walk-up music” when they come to bat. I say Dave Hudgens deserves this song as his “walk-out music:” The former Mets batting coach had some interesting words on his way out the door, firing salvos at everyone from the fans to ownership to GKR.
Like just about everyone else, I have been impressed with how Curtis Granderson handles himself. His charitable work, his inclusiveness with teammates young and old, his generosity with the media, his high energy, quick smile, upbeat tone — as a fan, it’s hard not to like the guy. One thing that particularly stands out in […]
In case you didn’t receive it, there was a letter sent out by the Mets marketing department. It read: To True New Yorkers – The victory you earn is sweeter than the victory you’re given. When we won in ’69 and ’86, we, the players, didn’t do it on our own. We made history together […]
We’re nearly at the end of April, and the Mets are in second place in the NL East with a 14-11 record. Are they for real, or is this April foolin’?
Postgame recap for game three’s loss will come later tonight, after I’m able to view the game via the magic of DVR. In the meantime, today’s positive thought for Mets fans is this:
I’ve been inspired by visitors in the comments section to try to come up with positive thoughts. Some say I’m occasionally negative (at times ornery, believe it or not!) in my blogging about the Mets. So here is today’s positive thought for the Mets: it won’t take much for the bullpen to improve upon its […]
At 63-75, Mets are currently a full game ahead of the Phillies in the NL East standings. However, that also places them in a tie with the Blue Jays for the 11th-worst record in MLB. As you may remember, only ten teams have their draft picks protected in the event they sign a free agent […]
What do you think of Matt Harvey? Maybe you should ask someone who’s told Matt Harvey. You’ve probably seen this already, but in case you didn’t, perhaps the funniest thing a Mets player has done (on purpose) in over 30 years — since John Stearns tackled Chief Noc-A-Homa before a Braves game: This also pretty […]
Just read this on Newsday: The Mets have assured Terry Collins that his job is not in danger and his future with the team will be discussed when his contract expires at the end of this season, two sources told Newsday. Not only is Collins safe, there have been no conversations about Wally Backman as […]
