Opening Day is finally here. I’m pumped, even though my favorite team is the Mets. So pumped in fact that I actually decided to post today. Huzzah. For those of you who care about things like this, ladies and gentlemen, your 2013 New York Metropolitans. Leading off and playing center field… Batting second and playing […]
.330 Batting Average. 44 Home Runs. 139 RBI’s. One Giant Congratulations.
In case you haven’t yet heard, last night, Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in the history of the Mets franchise. I still haven’t quite processed it (or most of the beer that I drank in celebration last night), so I don’t really know what to say about it all as a fan. I will […]
I can’t believe this is the 3rd Annual Condition: Poor St. Patricks Day Parade of Cardboard. Geez. How long have I been here? On to the parade. This year, the Grand Marshal of the parade is the Mets’ own “Irish Hammer”, Daniel Murphy. Have a great St. Paddy’s day everyone. Don’t eat too much Lucky […]
I know it’s only 4 games into the season, but I’m really feeling like it is. The Mets face their first major hurdle of the season when they start a 3 game series against the juggernaut Phillies in Philadelphia tonight. Fortunately, they’ll be missing Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt, but they will be facing Cole […]
Here’s to Bullet Bob. Rapid Robert. The Heater from Van Meter. Here’s to the man with 3 of the greatest nicknames ever.
The Mets bullpen of 2010 were not as bad as some of their predecessors. They blew 16 saves last season as compared to 21 in 2009, 29 in 2008 and 18 in 2007. Maybe that’s not the best number to be looking at, but I thought that was a pretty good way to judge the […]
I don’t care what everyone says. I’ll miss you and your awesome right arm. Just when I was learning how to spell your name correctly, too. By the way, I can’t believe I only have one card of Frenchy as a Met scanned.
So it’s finally here. I guess technically yesterday was the season opener, but really who cares about the defending world champs playing against their bitter rivals at one of the oldest ballparks in the country. SNORE! Right now as I type this, we’re looking at roughly 3 hours until Johan Santana throws the first pitch […]
I picked up some pretty nice cards on eBay over the last week or two. What with the Blizzard of ’09 and general holiday nuttiness, I haven’t had a chance to post them until now. First up, we have a 2008 Goudey John Maine Jersey. Ahh, the good old days, last year, when I still […]
