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: The All-Star(s), 1982
July 10th, 2012 by slangon

Moving right along. 1982 marked John Stearns final go round as an All-Star. He did what he usually did at the All-Star Game. Came in to catch the bottom of the 9th. The N.L. won 4-1.

Mets Through the Years: Opening Day Pitchers
April 5th, 2012 by slangon

This is the third post in this series. So far we’ve covered the men who have served as the manager of the Mets and the men who’ve caught the pitches. Today we’re going to take a look at some of the guys who have thrown those pitches. Initially, I was toying with the idea of […]

Mets Through the Years: The Managers
March 5th, 2012 by slangon

Later on tonight, I will be doing something that I haven’t done in a crow’s age. I will be sitting on a couch, drinking a beer and watching LIVE METS BASEBALL!!! Granted, it’s spring training baseball and granted I won’t be home until about a half an hour after the game starts so most likely […]

The Most Perfect Met Ever
August 15th, 2011 by slangon

This has been a very strange season for me as a Mets fan. I’ve kind of gotten used to frustration and disappointment being a part of my baseball diet thanks to every year since 2006. Lord knows this year has been chock full of bad feelings as well, but it’s also, up until recently at […]

I’m sure by now everyone has heard that the Phillies popped up out of nowhere and resigned Clifton Lee. That’s crazy. I mean it’s crazy to think about that rotation. Yikes. I guess I don’t really care about it this coming season since I don’t expect the Mets to really be in the mix anyway, […]

Way to Photo Edit, Upper Deck
September 9th, 2010 by slangon

One of the many things I enjoy thinking about when looking at my baseball cards (Yes, I do often look at them. I don’t just file them away into books and boxes and let them collect dust and appreciate in value.) is trying to picture what the player on the card thinks when they see […]

A Team Set Killer of a Trade
March 31st, 2010 by slangon

Last week was a pretty good week for me trade-wise. I got three trade offers that ended up doing some pretty fierce damage to various wantlists of mine. Todays episode comes to us from reader Robert, who wasn’t ashamed to admit to being a fellow Mets fan. Rob sent me a box of Mets cards […]

A Trade with Mark from Stats On The Back
March 19th, 2010 by slangon

As I’m sure everyone knows by now, Mark from Stats on the Back became a proud papa recently. Being the good father that he is, he’s trying to finish up the 2010 Topps set so that his boy Parker can have his own birth year set. I was able to help them out with a […]
