Found May 11, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
There is today’s winner for best banner during today’s Mets Banner Day Parade before the game. If I might say so myself, they did a fantastic job and out of the banners the Mets posted on their Twitter account today, I liked this one the best myself. Here are some of the other images the Mets tweeted or re-tweeted today, and also a few from New York Newsday: I loved the message in this particular one. Very cool… Looks like David Wright was well represented today. This one was looked great… Kevin Burkhardt was one of the judges and he seemed very impressed with this one. This was one of the first ones to go before the judges. Kudos for originality. When it comes to originality, nobody beats Mets fans! I knew there would be a few for John Buck… A well-deserved banner for second baseman Daniel Murphy! Homegrown stars are always the best! We’ll end this on a high note: The future looks bright!

Jordany Valdespin Doesn’t Care What You Think

He homered Valdy Style. When Jordany Valdespin walloped a ninth-inning homer into the second deck in right field – the “Pepsi Porch” – he flipped his bat and watched the ball soar, not exactly toeing the line on baseball etiquette. But Valdespin seems unlikely to change. “When you hit the ball, you got to enjoy your hit,” he said. “Every time I hit the ball, homer...

Matt Harvey Has All Star Game On His Mind

We’ve all heard and read about how much winning means to Matt Harvey. On MMO alone I believe I counted at least two posts entitled “All Matt Harvey Cares About Is Winning.” On MetsBlog you’ll find three times as many such posts. Harvey reminds us all of how much he wants to win every five days. He’s the textbook definition of a fierce competitor. But thanks to Steve Serby...

Marcum Ineffective Again, Gets Early Shower In 7-3 Mets Loss

The Mets lost a sleeper this evening to the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 7-3 at a sparsely filled Citi Field. Shaun Marcum was making his third start of the season for the Mets and once again failed to last five innings. The truth is he’s looked awful every time out there, but tonight was the worst we’ve seen yet. Marcum, now 0-3, saw his ERA balloon to 8.59 for the season...

Harvey Solid, But Mets Lose Third Straight In 3-2 Loss To Bucs

PRETTY IN PINK? The Mets were beaten by the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 3-2 this afternoon in front of a nicely packed Mother’s Day crowd at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started and while he pitched good enough to win, he wasn’t at his best and he seemed to rely mostly on a variety of breaking balls and off-speed stuff rather than his usual 95-98 mph fastball. He tossed...

Blocked By Adam Rubin: Is There An After Life?

It was this post that I wrote after Matt Harvey’s brilliant start on Tuesday that started it all. I had a ton of respect for Adam Rubin and how he covered the team. I never took his snark seriously and honestly felt bad for the way Omar Minaya shouted him out in 2010. Most people who I proudly call my friends through the #MetsTwitter world thought I was nuts. They cursed his name...

Mets' Frank Francisco has setback with elbow injury

The New York Mets were hoping to have Frank Francisco back soon.  This was based on how well he was progressing in rehabbing his ailing elbow.  However, the veteran reliever has had another setback. Francisco has been unlucky in that department.  He's experienced numerous setbacks during his recovery from offseason elbow surgery. Mike Puma of the New York Post says Francisco...

Mets Game Recap: This Team Is Fractured

How long have you been coming to this site? Two years? Five years? Nine years? The Mets lost to the Pirates today by the score of 11-2 and after nine years of writing recaps for this site and being the one responsible for doing so today, all I can do is offer you an apology instead. I didn’t have a recap in me after this game. I was too angry… I was too disgusted… The team...

There’s a Doc Gooden Book Coming out Soon

Because I’m a huge sucker for anything 80′s and especially anything mid-80′s New York Mets, I’ll probably buy Doc: A Memoir and read it within a couple days even though I am already reading a Mickey Mantle book and a Lenny Dykstra book. I think we’ve all heard the story of Doc Gooden’s morning the day after he became a World Series champion. In case you have not, here...
