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┬áthird basemen, as well as all of the Mets’ All-Star representatives. Today, we’ll be looking […]

Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 2001
July 11th, 2012 by slangon

Coming off of their World Series defeat to the Yankees, the Mets sent 2 players to the ASG in 2001, as well as a manager. Rick Reed made his second All-Star appearance that year. It’s crazy to think he had twice as many All-Star appearances as Edgardo Alfonzo, but hey, baseball’s a crazy sport. For […]

In case you didn’t hear, yesterday the Mets beat the Cubs by the score of 17-1. In honor of that feat, here are 17 Mets cards that were part of a massive, 109 card order that I picked up off of Sportlots recently. Enjoy. And just to be fair, the Cubbies did score one run, […]

February 7th, 2012 by slangon

Back about a million years ago (or at least it seems that long ago to me) (seriously, it took me about 20 minutes of hitting “Older Posts” and scrolling down to find the post I was looking for), The Cardboard Junkie put out a call for all your blank pack searcher decoy thingies in exchange […]

“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.┬áThe […]

Some Random Mets I Recently Got
August 29th, 2011 by slangon

So Hurricane Irene has come and gone and hopefully everyone who was in its path made it through safely. I personally was super lucky in that my house escaped 100% unscathed. I think the worse thing that happened was some of my garbage cans blew over, spilling grass clippings everywhere. Things in my corner of […]
