Egardo Alfonzo: “I Think It’s Going To Be A Great Future”

As the 2013 season draws to a close for the New York Mets, what can be taken away from their fifth-straight losing season is the emergence of a number of young talents ranging from the pitching mound to the bullpen; from home plate, to centerfield. Met-Legend Edgardo Alfonzo was once an up-and-coming prospect himself, becoming a premiere bat and a defensive wonder during the Amazin...

Memorable Mets Moments: Fonzie Goes Six for Six!

Edgardo Alfonzo remains one of the most beloved Mets alumni, both for his post-season heroics (e.g. 3 HR’s including a ninth inning grand slam in the space of two vital 1999 playoff games against the Reds and Diamondbacks), and his role as part of the “Best Infield Ever” as dubbed by Sports Illustrated.

Mets Card of the Week: 1999 Edgardo Alfonzo

So let this emerald-lidded shot of Edgardo Alfonzo on his 1999 Upper Deck Retro card serve that purpose. I got my own green Mets’ hat a year before this card was released. My wife and I had brought a couple...

Mets Card of the Week: 1998 Edgardo Alfonzo

1998 SCORE EDGARDO ALFONZO I was on my way downstairs the other day after a shower, when the path was interrupted by my 8-year old son. “Here, I’ve got something for you,” he said, handing me a card.

Edgardo Alfonzo delivers best Mets game ever

If you asked most Mets fans what is the greatest individual game in team history, most would answer Tom Seaver and his outing on July 9, 1969.
