213 Miles From Shea:
I live in Newark, NJ and frequent a Sports Authority on the edge of Nutley/Clifton because it is near a grocery store, Barnes and Noble and Target all within walking distance from each other.
With the exception of a bargain on a Santana Jersey I got last year (the afternoon before his no-hitter no less) I never get Mets stuff there because their merchandise is usually horrendously out of date (still at original retail price). In late June they finally stocked jerseys without the drop shadow (seriously) and the only players they carried are Wright and Davis.
While looking through the racks I came across this fashion jersey from Adidias:
Lots of notables: – Adidas theme on the front not just with the logo stamp but the three stripes in the center of the chest
- I’ve never seen the Circle Mets logo on the front of a uniform before (I have a jacket with it on the front that is patch size but that’s because I put it there)
- I’ve never seen the script “Mets” on the sleeve before. The Orioles have that/had that going on recently
BEST OF MAXIM
There is a likeable quality to New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner. He’s modest and unassuming, and has been stand-up in the bad times.
However, recently it’s been good times for Hefner, Friday’s starter in Pittsburgh, who will be trying for his eighth straight strong outing. Hefner is coming off a one-run performance in seven innings last weekend in Milwaukee. Hefner has 12...
The New York Mets are in the most envious of positions for the sellers of Major League Baseball; they have a plan. New York is sticking to its rebuilding plan and with the emergence of starters like Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey and the long-term signing of franchise player, David Wright, the Mets have light at the end of a dismal tunnel.
In the next couple of years the Mets could...
Andy Martino of the Daily News, spoke to a person with direct knowledge of the team’s thinking who said that the Mets are more likely to keep Marlon Byrd this summer, rather than trade him before the Trade Deadline on July 31.
We can debate the pros and cons of that, but I want to discuss Byrd in a different context for now.
When you think about a player that deserves to be MLB...
The Mets went out to San Francisco and swept the Giants for the first time in forever. This is on the heels of taking two-of-three from the Brewers in Milwaukee. That came after a seven-game homestand which saw the team go 3-4. And before that was the thought-to-be-grueling 11-game swing through Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago and Colorado. They went 7-4 and could just as easily...
The New York Mets are facing backlash from an American Indian organization after altering plans for an event later this month meant to celebrate Native American heritage.
According to the New York Times , the Mets approached a New York-based non-profit called the American Indian Community House about helping to organize a Native American Heritage Day at Citi Field. The groups picked...
As the trade deadline nears, the debate grows more intense every day as to the approach the Mets should take with respect to their more marketable players. Should they approach next year with an expectation to contend and hold on to all key components of what appears to be a newly energized roster? Or should they be taking a hard look at the big picture for holes yet to be filled...
Bobby Parnell hasn’t been pitching long. As he puts it, he “played a position” when he was little, and hit the mound for the first time in college. Because he threw hard, he kept climbing that mound for three years, was drafted, shuttled through the Mets minor league system, and plunked into his role as a late-game reliever in New York.
Some things — like that gas — stayed...

In an interview with Bill Madden of the New York Daily News, Tom Seaver said that he will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the 2013 All-Star Game to be held at Citi Field on Tuesday, July 16. Awesome!
The Mets’ “Franchise” wants you to know he’ll be up to the task of delivering that first pitch Tuesday night — the full 60 feet, six inches. But more than that,...
While conducting an in-dugout interview on Tuesday during the New York Mets-San Francisco Giants tilt at AT&T Park with SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt, Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner was on the receiving end of some phenomenal shenanigans courtesy of a few of his teammates. LaTroy Hawkins engaged in some background silliness, but the star of the sideshow [...]The post Jeremy Hefner victimized...
Former-Met Scott Hairston was dealt on Monday to the Washington Nationals after struggling mightily with the Cubs in 2013. While in hot pursuit of free agent outfielder Michael Bourn, Chicago swept Hairston out from under the feet of the Amazin’s front office, forcing Sandy’s “What Outfield?” Mets into the spotlight. Many, myself included, criticized Alderson for allowing...
Come on guys. Let’s win a series before the break. Stop losing ground. Stop the slide. Give everyone some hope going into the All Star Break. The mood is too gloomy for my liking. Just a little dash of positivity. Maybe that little bit will help clear up the case of PTSD Pirates fans are…
All of a sudden people are feeling a lot better about the Pirates again after an exciting walkoff win over the Mets Friday night at sold out PNC Park. The Bucs have won two in a row and certainly appear to have put the four game losing streak in the rear view mirror.
Leading up to the game, all the talk was about Pedro Alvarez, David Wright, and the Home Run Derby “drama.” Pedro...
