Found March 04, 2013 on Mets360.com:
It’s that time of the year!  Time to see what the Mets PR and marketing staff have come up with to entice you to step right up and greet the Mets.  Of course a team that won much more than they lost WOULD help, but such as it is, here is what promotions and special days you can look forward to this year at Citi Field. First off, a bit meh about this year’s slogan “Great Place, Great Time, Great Memories.”  First, it’s debatable, this is Citi’s 5th year of operation, and there are still things that detractors are still right on the nose about it.  Second, a great time watching yet another mediocre at best season?  And third, well yeah a good bet that something memorable will happen this season, be it a historic moment, a dramatic moment that fans will remember for years and that player will forever be defined by that moment or whatever, but I’m not sure if the promise of that happening is something to be used as the come-on.  Put it this way, the unfortunate post 6/15/1977 “Bring You...

Is Jonathon Niese the new ace?

As of today, Mets ace Johan Santana has yet to throw an in-game pitch this spring. His first game was pushed back to mid-March, which the Mets attributed to “lack of arm strength.” As Mets fans know, a Santana setback is definitely not something that should be taken lightly. Santana was placed on the disabled list last August, and finished the season there, with “lower back...

Mejia Flying Back To New York For Follow Up Related To Physical

Beat writers are reporting that starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia is flying back to New York for a follow up exam related to something that came up after taking his his physical. Mejia was supposed to pitch in a “B” Game this afternoon, but was a late scratch. Sandy Alderson is going to address reporters shortly. We have John there who will report further as soon as he hears what...

Will Ike Davis Be Seeing Stars In 2013?

I was at Citi Field last season, when the Ike-man jacked one onto the Shea Bridge. Davis has got what I call light-tower-power! Is there a chance that we could see two Mets all-stars this summer at Citi Field? The more I think about it, the more I am beginning to believe that David Wright might not be the only Mets player in the Midsummer Classic. If Ike Davis can start out this...

The Feeling Is That Almost No Chance Johan Avoids The DL

Things just keep getting worse and not better on the Johan Santana front. Andy Martino spoke to more than one team source and the consensus seems to be that Johan Santana will not be ready by Opening Day which totally wipes out Santana’s assertion that “he knows what he’s doing” and everything is okay. “I know the deal, spring training is for training okay!”. The Mets’...

Featured Post: A Banner Day For Me And My Mets!

So, my kids surprised me last night with a really early Mother’s Day gift – tickets to Banner Day! After ESPN’s decision to schedule the original May 26th date for Sunday Night Baseball, the Mets held a fan vote to allow fans to choose when Banner Day should be held and ended up moving the date to Saturday, May 11. I’ll be there. You have to understand – Banner Day was...

Mets Minors: Spring Training report Week 1

The games have begun to be played and through 9 there are some good things and some bad things going on for the New York Mets.  This series is only focused on the minor leaguers who are playing in the games and the Met minor leaguer of the week for Week 1 is Zach Lutz.  He’s been one of the steadiest hitters.  If only he had more positional flexibility he’d be a definite...

Mets' Pedro Feliciano pitches with heart monitor

New York Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano wore a heart monitor while pitching and reported no problems or discomfort during his first spring training outing. Feliciano threw one inning against the Miami Marlins in a ''B'' game on a practice field behind Roger Dean Stadium. He allowed one run - on Ben Lasater's home run - hit a batter and struck out one. '&...

Mets Matters: Gee Sparkles, Cowgill Impresses Me, Who’s Running The Show?

Some athletes will use anything as a motivator while others simply know what it takes to get ready. Today, pitching coach Dan Warthen tried to sell the idea Johan Santana used perceived criticism of his physical condition as the spark to get him on the mound for the first time since Feb. 19. Santana threw the day after GM Sandy Alderson said he didn’t think the soon-to-be 34...

New York Mets closer Frank Francisco doubtful for Opening Day

New York Mets manager Terry Collins told WFAN’s Mike Francesa that he does not “think Frank [Francisco] is going to be ready for Opening Day” and it will be Bobby Parnells job to “run with.” #bbpBox_307633350565318656 a { text-decoration:none; color:#009999; }#bbpBox_307633350565318656 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } Also in that interview on WFAN, Collins said...
