Want Mets To Go For The Throat

Let’s not have any of this wild card talk, it’s up to the Mets to go for the throat, and as Bob Murphy once so eloquently said, “win the damn thing.’’ For the first time in franchise history, the Mets overcame deficits in each of the last three innings to beat Tampa Bay last night. MURPHY: “Win the damn thing.” (Mets) It was an effort manager Terry Collins correctly...

Happy Birthday Gary Cohen

It’s Outta Here!!!! Gary Cohen turns 55 years old today. There’s no one I would rather see calling every game’s live action on SNY. The trio of Cohen, Darling, and Hernandez makes for entertaining television, even when the Mets are having a losing season. Cohen has been calling the action in the Mets booth since 1989. He started on WFAN radio calling games with the legendary...

Living the dream with Anthony Seratelli

Like many young Americans, I wanted to be a baseball player when I was a growing up. Baseball was that first sport to catch my eye. The memories I have of my early experiences with Baseball are ones I cherish. They start with listening to Bob Murphy and Gary Thorne’s play by play as the Mets defeated the Astros in game six of the 1986 National League Championship Series, while...

This Day In Mets Infamy: My Brush With Ralph Kiner

Yesterday another piece of my childhood faded away. While I was at work I received a email from the Mets announcing the passing of Hall Of Fame ballplayer and original Mets announcer, Ralph Kiner. At first it didn’t sink in. I don’t know if this was because I was so caught up with my work – or I was just aloof. But upon driving in my car on my way home from the office I started...

Remembering Hall of Famer and Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner

You could not have grown up a baseball fan in greater New York and not known that Channel 11 belonged to the Yankees and Channel 9 belonged to the Mets. Phil Rizzuto belonged to the Yankees but Ralph Kiner belonged to the Mets. Teamed up with Lindsey Nelson and Bob Murphy, he was with the Mets since the beginning. He always had a story about one of the game’s greats and could...

Lewin-Gate: Much Ado About Nothing

Who is Josh Lewin and why is his name suffocating my Twitter timeline?Of course I’m kidding, I know that Josh Lewin is the legendary Mets announcer who has entertained the Flushing faithful for decades with that warm and folksy voice that makes one seriously consider turning off the TV and opt for the radio instead. Oh no, wait, that’s Bob Murphy I was thinking about, never mind…Lewin...

One Lousy Run

How many times have you uttered those three words after a New York Mets game, all the while shaking your head? In 2013 you probably said it several times; 26 to be exact. Photo courtesy of Hazboy (c) 2014. All rights reserved. The Mets lost 26 games by one run in 2013. Perhaps you don’t find that a particularly interesting stat. But consider this: If the Mets had won all of those...

Mets broadcast teams then and now

Being in a major media market the Mets have always been fairly lucky to have fairly good broadcasters doing color and play by play of their games.  Thought it might be fun to compare the classic trio of Lindsey Nelson, Bob Murphy and Ralph Kiner with today’s trio of leads: Gary Cohen, Ron Darling and Keith Hernandez. Lindsey Nelson was the first lead broadcaster for the Mets. ...
