Mets Merized Online:
As someone who takes great pride in running a Mets fansite, I must admit that occasionally I am repulsed by the behavior of some of those who call themselves Mets fans. Among our incredible fanbase, lurk many who occupy the lowest depths of depravity and are a pariah among us.
You may have wondered what Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen were referring to during last night’s broadcast when out of the blue Hernandez said how disgusted he was with Twitter and wondered why any player would want anything to do with it.
What Hernandez was referring to was perfectly captured in a post by MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo who relayed the behavior of some Mets fans who decided to to send death threats and other obscenity-laden messages to Mets reliever Jon Rauch after he allowed Russell Martin’s walk-off home run on Sunday.
Rauch was bombarded with tweets telling him to kill himself, hang himself, choke to death, and just about the worst things you could possibly imagine. It was a terrible scene watchi...

The MMO Player of the Week for this week had himself a huge week and looks like he’s heating up and getting ready to deliver some big numbers for the Mets.
This week includes the final game of the Cardinals series, the 3-game series against the Nationals and the 3-game series against the Yankees. Check out how well Duda did this week!
The New York Mets ended a three-game losing streak, scoring a season high eleven runs against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night:
Chris Young started for the Mets, allowing two runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings of work:
In his second start since shoulder surgery, Young tossed 106 pitches (72 for strikes) while striking out four en route to his first victory of 2012 campaign...

The Mets go for the three game sweep tonight as they take on the Rays in Tampa. Last night was another tremendous night for this team as Dickey absolutely crushed the Rays and made...
The New York Mets went more than 50 years and 8,000 games without ever recording a no-hitter, a streak that Johan Santana finally snapped June 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals. If they get their way, they'll suddenly have two in less than two weeks. Prior to his club's 9-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday, manager Terry Collins said that the Mets have appealed...
Once again, boom goes the dynamite. The Mets offensive barrage against the Tampa Bay Rays leaked into the final game of the series, helping the team secure an interleague sweep in a 9-6 victory.
The offense continued to be timely. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Jason Bay kicked off the game with a pair of solo shots. The jumpstart helped the Mets stay in the game despite the continued struggles...
Mets pitcher R.A Dickey just recently became the first pitcher to reach 10 wins this season. Dickey Pitched all nine innings with one run scored(un earned though). Not only did Dickey become the first to 10 wins he also had a streak of no run innings, that previously ended, at 32 and 2/3 innings. R.A a fenomenal knuckle ball pitcher has pitched amazingly with a 2.20 ERA and 90 total...
New York Mets manager Terry Collins took fault with Johan Santana's most recent outing.
Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays only has himself to blame for his latest performance.
Coming off another pitching milestone, the Mets hope Santana can rebound from one of his worst starts of the season when he opposes Hellickson, who goes for his first victory in a month in Thursday...
It must be something I give off. I wasn't wearing any Mets stuff early in my day on Wednesday. Yet all I had to do was mention to a couple of other people in the hotel I was staying at that I live in Queens for them to tell me that they were big Mets fans and start talking baseball.
Then I got to a restaurant to enjoy a meal while wearing swim trunks and a ratty Eric Clapton...
Not too long ago, the answer to that question would be easy. A resounding “NO!”. Too much money, too old, bad attitude, lousy fielder and he is a strikeout waiting to happen. Physical prowess be damned, he just has too much baggage. Then again, not too long ago, I would have scoffed at the idea of signing Derrek Lee to the team. My, how things have changed.
At the very least...
Claim to fame: Fresh off the first no-hitter in the 8,000+ game history of the New York Mets, Johan Santana appears fully recovered from the shoulder surgery that cost him the 2011 season. Santana's historic performance and his strong output through 11 starts this season suggest that the lefty's career is far from finished and that the dominant pitcher we saw in Minnesota...
Yesterday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa discussed how Mets broadcasters Howie Rose and Gary Cohen were “out of line” during this past weekend’s Subway Series.
Francesa said that it’s great that the Mets have fans as announcers, but that they sometimes take it too far in rooting for their team, especially against the Yankees.
Frankly, I love that Rose and Cohen are as die-hard of...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The National League wins co-leader faced the American League wins co-leader Wednesday night, a 98 mph fastballs vs. 80 mph knuckleballs. It was contest. The New York Mets' R.A. Dickey bedazzled the Rays with his knuckler to come within one infield hit of a no-hitter, and the Mets ripped the Tampa Bay Rays 9-1. Rays starter David Price was bludgeoned...
