I Guess We’ve All Got To Go Sometime
September 23rd, 2012 by slangon

To the Mets game, that is, which is where I’m off to today. I’ve got kind of mixed feeling on the matter, too. I don’t think I need to remind you what a colossal disappointment the 2012 Mets season has been (we have the media and Yankee’s fans for that), so I’m sure you can […]

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 […]

Smell You Later, Larry. Smell You Later Forever.
September 7th, 2012 by slangon

As most people know by now, Chipper Jones has announced his impending retirement from baseball after the end of the 2012 season. As most people also know, Chipper Jones has brutally abused the Mets over the course of his career. Over the course of 19 seasons, Larry has faced the Mets in 239 games, and […]

Mets Through the Years: The All-Star(s), 2004
July 11th, 2012 by slangon

Two members of the New York Mets were named to the N.L. All-Star team in 2004. Glavine was no stranger to the ASG, but this was the first time he made it as a Met. He ended up with a losing record that year, but we was 7-7 with a 2.66 ERA at the break. […]

I Guess That’s One Way to Stop a Losing Streak
June 28th, 2012 by slangon

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, […]

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 […]

A Random Trade with Paul
January 19th, 2012 by slangon

I recently completed a trade with fellow Mets fan and Jerseyite Paul from Paul’s Random Baseball Stuff. I always enjoy a good trade in general, but there’s something especially nice about pulling on off with another fan of your favorite team. If nothing else, it helps to clear out some of the massive piles of […]

Hot Damn! What a Way to End It.
September 28th, 2011 by slangon

Turns out this last day of the season is so chock full of craziness, I almost don’t care that Mets are going out on a sour note and will end up with a losing record for the third year in a row. In case you missed it, one of the guys on this card went […]

“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 […]

The Junkman Delivers
January 30th, 2011 by slangon

A while back, sometime before Christmas, everyone’s favorite Braves fan, dayf over at Cardboard Junkie, had posted about a bunch of cards he rescued from the quarter box at his local card shop. I took a shine to one of those cards and inquired as to the availability of it. He was game, so I […]
