Di-JEST: Desperate Mets Try New Promo Tactic

When your ballclub is cruising toward another mid-70s win season and seeing its attendance in continued decline you try everything you can think of to get fans out to the park. The Mets have tried promotions like fireworks nights, concerts by name entertainers, and have given bobblehead dolls out of everyone from Ed Kranepool to Joe Biden. Nothing is working and those fireworks are...

Josh Edgin and the overdue death of LOOGY culture

If asked to identify the strength of the team coming into the season, most people would have said the starting rotation. But here in early July, the strength of the squad for nearly the last month has been the bullpen. The relievers got off to a poor start but the Mets shuffled through some of the dead weight and since June 9, the bullpen has been fantastic. What’s so special...

Mets get first-hand experience against all-righty bullpen

Generally speaking, Interleague games are not my favorites. My preference is for a balanced schedule and you simply cannot have that with Interleague games. Be that as it may, the last two games against the Angels have been fun, even if they have both been four-hour affairs that required extra innings. There’s the joy of seeing Mike Trout, the chance to once again see Albert...

Turned Off

I had great seats at Thursday’s game, and I attended with great people. The seats will not always be that great, and I may not have people to go with all the time. What this means, I fear, is that the best part of attending a Met game for me in 2014, on a consistent basis, is the 20 second clip of Turn It On Again by Genesis that they play during the opening montage. No, really...
