The Mets off-season got off to a rousing start on Monday, as the team announced long anticipated and much needed changes to the outfield wall. And for the first time in a long time, the Mets did everything right. “We wanted to make Citi Field fair to both pitchers and hitters,” said Sandy Alderson said […]
I can’t believe I missed this one. From the folks that brought you the hilarious Mets “help wanted” ad, here is a plea from “John Ricco” to please, please buy Mets tickets. Even though it was taped prior to the 2011 season, it’s still fun to watch:
Well, that was a pretty good game. Did anyone else have flashbacks of another Game 6, you know, that game in 1986? Just like in 1986 when the Mets were down by two runs and down to their last strike (except that was in the tenth inning), the Cardinals were able to score two runs […]
There has been a lot written lately about whether the Mets will trade David Wright this off season. I say he is not going anywhere, unless… Unless Jose Reyes signs elsewhere. The conventional wisdom is that if the Mets resign Reyes they might trade Wright in order to save money. I think just the opposite […]
Americans used to be wary of the Japanese; something about a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor or something.

On this first night of yet another World Series that does not include the Mets, let’s take a look back at the four Fall Classics in which the Mets did participate: 1969 As a Mets fan I wish I had memories of that World Series. Of course, that would make me older than I already […]
A 1986 WWOR Mets promo, urging the team to “Bring it Home.” Hey, they did!
Fan favorite Wally Backman didn’t get the Mets managerial job last season, and now he may be headed to another team where the road to finally becoming a big league skipper appears easier. The New York Post reports Backman may leave the Mets and head down to D.C. to be Davey Johnson’s third base coach […]
Let’s see, the Mets need a closer, Francisco Rodriguez will be a free agent; could a reunion be in the works? Shockingly, the Mets say it is a possibility. “We haven’t ruled anything out,” a team official told ESPNNewYork.com. “We need a closer. It is a long way down the road. We haven’t had those […]
