  • Picture Of The Day: Ever Wonder What “Mets” Stands For?

    Picture Of The Day: Ever Wonder What “Mets” Stands For?

    Have you ever found yourself wondering what a “Met” was?  Most people will tell you that is is a short form for Metropolitan, as in the “New York Metropolitans.”  There was a time when I believed the same thing.  Then I saw this image. Now I believe the term “Mets” is simply an abbreviation for […]

    Picture Of The Day: When Sports Takes A Back Seat

    After every New York Mets game this season, artist Joe Petruccio creates a new entry for his sketchbook that portrays what happened in the game.  Each entry can be seen on Joe’s website, called “My Mets Journal.”  His entry from last night’s game between the Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies makes it clear that sometimes […]

    Mets Fans Use Friend’s Hood As A Garbage Can (Video)

    Here is some more fun at the ballpark. While some may choose to pass time during a baseball game by picking a fight with those around them, others would rather find something humorous to do, like stack cups on the head of a passed out man, or fill their buddy’s hoodie up with garbage while […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Boring Day In The Outfield Ibanez?

    Picture Of The Day: Boring Day In The Outfield Ibanez?

    One look at the scoreboard would have you thinking that the Philadelphia Phillies’ Raul Ibanez had himself quite the busy day in the outfield last night during a game against the New York Mets.  One look at this image, however, would suggest otherwise. I guess we all have a little Al Bundy in us.

    Chris Rock Does A Number On The Mets On The Late Show (Video)

    Late last week Chris Rock appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and when the two began talking about opening day in the MLB, the conversation quickly turned into a two-minute anti-Mets comedy skit from Chris. Making constant references to the Mets’ financial troubles, Chris Rock fired insult after insult at what he deemed […]

    I Am Now A Mets Fan Thanks To Tehmeena Afzal (Video)

    I guess this is supposed to be some sort of promotional video for the New York Mets’ upcoming season, and if that is the case, they’ve got my attention! It can be tough competing in the same market as the New York Yankees, but it appears as though the Mets have added a secret weapon […]

    Take That New York Mets! (Pic)

    You know things have just about hit rock bottom for your club when they become the punchline for a local storage company’s advertising campaign. Manhattan Mini Storage has purchased ad space on New York City subways and they are filling that space with a poster that asks riders, “Why leave a city that has six […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/6/10 — Danny Espinosa

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/6/10 — Danny Espinosa

    Rookie Danny Espinosa was called up to the big league squad for the Washington Nationals just last week when rosters were expanded.  As well as he was playing in Triple-A, no one including himself thought that he was going to be having games like this so early in his major league career.  His huge night […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/10 — Adam LaRoche

    The Stat Line of the Night — 8/1/10 — Adam LaRoche

    The Arizona Diamondbacks recently made some big moves as the trade deadline was nearing, but the general feeling is that they were sellers.  At 23 games back in the division, there is not much hope for this season.  That doesn’t mean a D-backs fan can’t dream, however.  Yesterday was a perfect day for an Arizona […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/29/10 – R.A. Dickey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/29/10 – R.A. Dickey

    A long, long time ago, R.A. Dickey was one of the hottest pitching prospects in all of baseball. He was a 1st round pick of the Rangers in 1996. But like so many prospects that are hyped up, Dickey never lived up to his potential. Until now — almost 15 years later. Dickey is now […]

  • “Let’s Get You Back Out To ‘Shitty’ Field”

    “Let’s Get You Back Out To ‘Shitty’ Field”

    Here is another case of “he said what?” How shitty can the new home of the Mets really be?  Perhaps this ESPN reporter was referring to the team on the field rather than the stadium they play in when he called Citi Field, “Shitty Field.” A simple slip of the tongue?  Or was he trying […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 7/6/10 — Johan Santana

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/6/10 — Johan Santana

    The Mets have had their ups and downs this season, but it seems as though every time Johan Santana takes the mound, the Mets bats go silent.  He is sporting a 3.15 ERA with a measly .239 batting average against him, however he was only 5-5 going into last night’s game.  Santana didn’t need any […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    C.C. Sabathia had a pretty bad May.  For most pitchers, a 1-2 record and a 5.15 ERA wouldn’t have been catastrophic for a month, but the expectations for the former Cy Young award winner are a bit higher.  Things did not look to get any easier this month, with C.C. facing both Johan Santana and […]

    Picture Of The Day: Just Keeping His Arm Warm

    As a former pitcher, I never used to ice.  That’s probably why I never made it past D1 college.  But this ice job in the picture should probably be filed under ‘excessive icing.’  This Mets pitcher has his right arm completely mummified after his outing against the Nationals.  Icing the arm isn’t going to help […]
