Month: February 2018

I’m In Florida for Spring Training, but There is a Caveat…..

….. I’m sick. And it’s a shame too. I’m thinking back at all those Winter days where I had nothing to do but twiddle my thumbs, when I was 100% healthy, and now, when I want to enjoy the warm air and the breeze, I’ll be watching the game under

Club Mets 2018 Memberships Available

Since 2016, I’ve been a Club Mets member. The membership has cost $19 since I joined, and while there are a lot of pointless benefits, you do get two complementary tickets for any non-Saturday non-Opening Day game. So, if you use the ticket voucher wisely, that easily negates the $19

WATCH: Johan Santana Pitches a Shutout in the Penultimate Game at Shea

Leaving David Wright out of the equation, there is no one that I wish we would’ve seen more of than Johan Santana. The lefty ace, who is responsible for the Mets lone no-hitter, a warm June night in 2012, is still a cult hero in New York, and in Minneapolis,

Mets Baseball is Back!

Well, Spring Training at least. If anyone else had the day off like me, you probably spent it indoors, away from the terrible weather, pretending like you were down in Florida, while listening to Gary, Keith and Ron call the game from Port St. Lucie. Sure, Wheeler only pitched one

Spring Training Games Begin…. Tomorrow!

Wow, that went quick. All of a sudden, we are face to face with the Grapefruit League schedule. First pitch? Tomorrow, at 1:10pm EST. Starting for the Mets is Zack Wheeler, and around seven of the starting nine in the lineup are guys that will get considerable playing time this

Back in November, the Mets (as well as the rest of Major League Baseball) announced the new caps that will be worn for all non-regular season game events (Spring Training, Batting Practice, etc.) I even wrote a blog entry about it, which you can check out here. Well, I was

Sights and Sounds: Spring Training Edition

If you haven’t already, I’d highly suggest subscribing to SNY’s YouTube page. They’ve been producing videos that have been making me want to call the airlines and have them switch my ticket to tomorrow (even if I’m under the weather). There is something so calming about the sound of snap

My Spring Training Plans Revealed!

Finally! The news that everyone has been waiting for this offseason has come out. After months of lobbying from the fanbase, we finally know…… ….. that I’m going to Spring Training later this month. (** crickets **) Ok, so, maybe this is totally meaningless to you, but like I usually

Best Case Scenario, Where Does David Wright wind-up?

Picture this: The Mets have signed Frazier, and plan for him to be in the hot corner for the next two years. David Wright, who now no longer has the pressure of being the everyday third baseman, performs well in Spring Training, and is healthy enough to start the year
