Mets Through the Years: Shortstop
September 11th, 2012 by slangon

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the New York Mets, I’ve been looking at the primary players at each position throughout the teams history. We’ve already looked at the managers, Opening Day starting pitchers, catchers, first basemen, second basemen, and third basemen, as well as all of the Mets’ All-Star representatives. Today, we’ll be looking […]

Mets Through the Years: Third Base
September 4th, 2012 by slangon

Man, I’ve been slacking on this series. I still have 5 positions left to go and only about a month left in the season. We’ve already looked at the managers, catchers, Opening Day starting pitchers, first basemen and second basemen. We’ve also gone through the players the Mets have sent to the All-Star Game every […]

Card of the Moment #86
August 21st, 2012 by slangon

Today’s Card of the Moment is brought to us by the letters S, P and F. And the number 35. If anyone has noticed, I haven’t posted here in about a week and a half. Normally, that could be chalked up to laziness, but this time I have an excuse. I was on vacation, sitting […]

For the third year in a row, three Mets were named to the National League All-Star team in 1970. Buddy Harrelson was named to his first All-Star team in 1970, proof that the All-Star team wasn’t always based on offense. Gil Hodges had the honor of managing the National League All-Star team thanks to the […]

Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 1968
July 9th, 2012 by slangon

1968 marked the first time in their existence that the Mets would send multiple players to the Mid-Summer Classic. Jerry Grote was named to his first All-Star Team, thanks in part to his .291 average at the break. He was the starting backstop for the Senior Circuit and went 0 for 2 with a strikeout. […]

A Trade to Prove That I’m Still Alive
June 8th, 2012 by slangon

Yes I know that I’ve been terribly slackerish lately. It’s summer time. What can I say? Anyway, today we’re going to look at a pretty sweet trade that I pulled off a week or 2 or 3 ago. Who can remember at this point? Besides, I could just tell you that I made this trade […]

Mets Through the Years: First Base
May 18th, 2012 by slangon

This is the fourth post in this series. We’ve looked at the field generals, the men who’ve donned the tools of ignorance, and the guys who’ve thrown the first pitch of the season. Today we’ll be taking a trip back through time to see who’s covered the first base bag for the Mets throughout their […]
