Found February 27, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
Last season, the New York Mets answered the pleas of Mets fans everywhere and gave us the blue walls we so desperately wanted at Citi Field. As a show of good faith, this season, the Mets have graciously decided to add a matching blue awning to go with the blue outfield walls… And the best part is that we didn’t even have to beg for it… Ain’t she a pretty site? I know what you’re thinking right now… Huh? What? Hummina, Hummina, Hummina… Seriously, who makes these business decisions for the Mets? With Uncle Bernie behind bars I really thought all of our troubles were over… I really thought better decisions would come out of that whole ordeal… But no, instead we decide to go out with the Ponzi Schemes and in with the Pyramid Schemes… Maybe I’m being to rambunctious, maybe I’m overreacting, and maybe I’m jumping the gun a little bit… So let try to be somewhat fair… After all, a little objectivity never hurt anybody, right? So here is what Amway’s main website has to say about th

Zack Wheeler And The Brewing Of Excitement

The Mets’ first spring telecast from Port St. Lucie was this past Saturday (2/24). This was good news on several fronts. It pointed out that spring – the actual season, spring – is, indeed, on the way, that we here in the chilly Northeast will shortly be freed from this bleak midwinter. It evoked a coming time of short sleeves and short pants, those days of soda and pretzels...

Mets prospect makes great grab to rob HR

Davis homers, Mets suffer first preseason loss to Nats

It took until the Mets’ fourth Spring Training game for the team to finally be outscored, so that’s good. Although New York lost to Washington last night 6-4, there were a number of positives to take away. For one, Wilmer Flores looked comfortable at second base. I wondered earlier this month about the longtime prospect’s future on defense. Based on how they are playing him...

Sandy Alderson On Leadoff Position, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Ruben Tejada, Expectations

Joe D. It’s been widely reported that Kirk Nieuwenhuis will be strongly considered as a leadoff candidate this season despite a 31% strikeout percentage, a low contact rate and on-base percentage, and a poor batting eye. Assuming he could improve his on-base and strikeout rates a little, his batting eye still is what it is, and he doesn’t fit the mold of an ideal leadoff man...

The 2012 Mets in the Zone, a Month by Month Breakdown.

I probably wasn’t the only person frustrated last year watching Kirk Nieuwenhuis, or Lucas Duda, or Ike Davis appearing to take fat pitches down the middle of the plate only to see them swing at a breaking pitch in the dirt or a fastball at eye level. On several notable occasions Keith Hernandez himself went off on hitters taking 2-1 fastballs “right down the pike” as he...

Q&A: Zack Wheeler, Future Mets’ Ace

Zack Wheeler hadn’t been pitching particularly well when he agreed to do this interview late last season. During his previous seven outings — three with Double-A Binghamton and four with Triple-A Buffalo — he’d allowed 28 runs in 35 innings. Deep into his second full professional season, the New York Mets’ best prospect seemed to have hit a wall. This season, the 23-year...

Zack Wheeler And “The Zing”

Zack Wheeler‘s spring debut set the prospect world abuzz as the right-hander showed elite stuff in two scoreless innings of work. Having seen him pitch twice for the Augusta GreenJackets in 2010, Wheeler’s outing is an example of projection blooming into production. Reading through older reports while watching Hotel Transylvania left me looking for “The Zing”, or the moment...

Mets Card of the Week: Mystery Met

Ah, spring training, when a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of a great season to come. The team has provided you with new dress whites, a fresh stiff-brimmed cap, sharp blue spats– the works. Maybe you’ll hold on to your grungy nondenominational batting glove, which saw you through the previous season in good stead… And hey, here comes the Topps photographer. He wants...

Carlos Beltran: Why do fans still hate him?

The New York Mets took a chance nearly two years ago when they traded an established outfielder and clubhouse leader in Carlos Beltran. Beltran, who still ranks in the top ten in several offensive categories in Mets history, has recently stated that their gamble paid off. At the time, the experts proclaimed that the immediate winner in the Wheeler-Beltran deal was the San Francisco...

New York Mets Matt den Dekker robs home run rather impressively (Video)

As MLB spring training is officially underway, we have our first home run robbery to take note of. In the seventh inning of the Mets/Nationals game on Tuesday night, New York outfield prospect Matt Den Dekker took what appeared to be a home run from the Nationals Anthony Rendon: Your browser does not support iframes.
