Mets Through the Years: Center Field
October 2nd, 2012 by slangon

Ugh. This is going to be close. 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,shortstops, third basemen and left fielders, as well as all of the Mets’ All-Star representatives.

Good Feelings
August 30th, 2011 by slangon

It’s not too often these days that I can actually feel pretty good about the Mets, but they did sweep the Marlins in a double header yesterday, and that’s put a smile on my face. And yes, I do understand that the Marlins are a team who’ve gone 4-19 over their last 23 games, but […]

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 […]

“Payment” from Project ’62: Part 1
June 27th, 2011 by slangon

Hopefully everyone saw the custom relic card that I banged out for Chris from Project 1962. Also, hopefully everyone saw the video I posted of the actual process of tearing apart the original relic card. Now it’s time to take a look at the envelope full of goodies that Chris used to entice me to […]

Countdown to Opening Day: 8
March 24th, 2011 by slangon

8 days to go. Starting in center field for the ’86 squad, position #8 on your scorecard, was The Dude. Although he was still splitting time with Mookie Wilson in center, Nails played the lions share of games at that position in 1986, and did so admirably, posting only 3 errors for a .990 fielding […]

My Thoughts on the Mets Going Forward: The Outfield
December 18th, 2010 by slangon

As of now, it seems as though the starting outfield for the Mets 2011 season will be Jason Bay, Carlos Beltran and Angel Pagan. That is unless they end up trading Carlos before the off-season ends. Really it seems like the only question is who will be patrolling center and who will be in right. […]

Cards from Cards on Cards
December 16th, 2009 by slangon

I’ve had a bit of a dry spell as far as trades go lately. Recently however, I did manage to negotiate a pretty good one with Kerry from Cards on Cards. I gave him a big stack of ’09 Ginters, which in itself was good for me, since I’m getting sick of looking at all […]
