Mets Through the Years: Left Field
September 25th, 2012 by slangon

Man, time is getting short. The Mets have 9 games to go and I’ve got 3 positions left to do. Fingers, don’t fail me now. 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 […]

July 11th, 2012 by slangon

For the first All-Star Game of the new millennium, the Mets sent 3 players to the festivities. Fonzie was named to his first and only All-Star game in 2000. He had a killer year, batting .324 with 25 homers and 94 RBI’s. That’s pretty damn nice from 2nd base. He came into the All-Star game […]

I don’t know about you, but I often seem to run into this problem. A manilla envelope shows up in my mailbox and I know that it means one thing: sweet, sweet cardboard. Sometimes, I have the time to crack that sucker open right then and there and see what’s in it, sometimes I don’t. […]

“O” Yeah! It’s a Trade.
September 4th, 2011 by slangon

A while back, Ryan from “O” No! Another Orioles Blog had contacted me about having some cards from my Mets wantlist. Obviously, I’m always down to chip away at the holes in my Mets collection, so a deal was struck, cards were mailed out and delivered, despite not one, but two natural disasters taking place. The […]
