TEAMS: New York Mets
Retired New York Mets star (and current Mets broadcaster) Keith Hernandez is considering shaving off his trademark mustache, which in 2007 was named the top sports mustache of all-time (by the American Mustache Institute - apparently there is such a thing).

The thought of Hernandez shaving his famous mustache has thrown New Yorkers into a tizzy, which is best reflected in a video that the MLB Fan Cave put together this week featuring fans rallying to convince him not to shave.

Will he go through with it? We shall see.

Projecting Out 2013-2015 ETA’s For Mets Top Prospects

Lets have some fun today. After reading something Jim Callis said in his Prospect Chat on Baseball America yesterday, I was inspired to bring out my crystal ball and predict when we’ll see some of the Mets top prospect’s. But first take a look at this: Wow, that’s a pretty optimistic view, and one that could certainly be construed as rushing one’s number one prospect...

Harvey Solid, But Inept Mets Offense Shut Down by Nats

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The Mets starter was outstanding, the bullpen was strong and the offense didn’t do a thing. The Mets lost their sixth straight game on Wednesday night, dropping the series finale with the Washington Nationals, 2-0, and were swept for the second straight series. They’re now 13 games under .500 for the first time this season and the offense...

The Mets And Their Home Field Disadvantage

The Mets have lost five straight and dropped seven of their last eight games. The club has lost a season-high six games in a row for the third time this season and is 3-7 in its last 10 games. They are at a season high of 12 games under .500 for the season and in danger of being swept on this homestand if they don’t salvage tonight’s game. Since the All Star Break, the...

Going, Going, Gone: David Wright Edition

It hard to think that after the stunning exit from the 2006 NLCS, the consecutive collapses that followed, the mediocre baseball since, and the gut check that was the departure of Jose Reyes, that things could actually get worse for our beloved Mets.  With the team poised to close out its worst campaign in at least four years, the organization isn’t exactly entering the offseason...

With mustaches on sticks, New Yorkers beg Keith Hernandez to keep his (video)

If you haven’t heard, Keith Hernandez, a New York Mets legend-turned respected and admired analyst on team telecasts, recently said he has been considering shaving off his trademark mustache, saying that he just might show up for the final game of the season with what would be a disconcerting absence of the ever-present soup-strainer upon [...]

Knuckleballers… They Are Like The Kickers Of MLB

It comes as no surprise to most Mets fans, but the team has officially been eliminated from the NL East race. They are 22 games behind the NL East leading Washington Nationals and only have 21 games to play. The team has little to play for the rest of the way and the majority of the team has probably started booking some off-season vacations. The one player who still has a lot to...

Historical Epidemic ... Or Is That Epidemically Historical?

I usually miss a night of blogging due to logistics, vacation, beer, things like that. But I'll admit that I didn't blog about Tuesday night's game yesterday because it felt silly to wail about how horrible a baseball team while the country marked the passing of the darkest date in its history, and in New York City's history. Seemed silly. But I've said it before...

Harvey Milks 10 Ks

The Mets went into their minor league system and pulled a giant rabbit out of their hat with Matt Harvey.  *terrible Jimmy Stewart impression*  Mr. Potter, I knew a Harvey once.    Back in 1955, see, and Danny Kaye asked me to sneak this guy named Harvey out of his bedroom at 2 AM.  Nice fella, that Harvey.  He told me a story that involved Ethel Merman and ping pong balls...
