God Speed, Good Sir.
December 18th, 2012 by slangon

It’s a bittersweet day in Metsdom. On one hand, I once again have to bid farewell to my favorite Met just after he finished an amazing season. On the other hand, gaping holes in the team are being filled. On the third hand, now that R.A. and Jose are both on the Blue Jays, I […]

A Collective Groan of Disgust from Every Third Base Prospect in the Mets Farm System
November 30th, 2012 by slangon

Shhh. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a minor league third baseman weeping gently into his pillow. He’s not going anywhere. Looks like this card could be a reality.

Hell Yeah

Making The Season Worth Watching
September 28th, 2012 by slangon

It’s become painfully clear that 2012 is a lost season for my beloved New York Metropolitans. I don’t think I’m making any kind of groundbreaking statement by saying that. What has taken a little bit of the sting out of that is the fact that there are a couple of feel good stories going on […]

A New King in Town (For Reals)
September 27th, 2012 by slangon

It has been done. Yesterday, in the bottom of the 3rd inning, David Wright hit a slow roller just past the pitcher’s reach that the third baseman for the Pirates fielded but was unable to throw out Wright. As a matter of fact, he ended up airmailing it past the first baseman and Wright ended […]

A New King in Town (Almost)
September 26th, 2012 by slangon

Just on the odd chance that anyone out there missed the Mets game last night (because after all, who in there right mind would not be glued to the television every single time the Mets are on?), after showing a couple of small signs of resiliency and life, the team ultimately fell to the Pirates […]

You Gotta Take It Where You Can Get It, I Guess
July 29th, 2012 by slangon

So the Mets lost again last night. No big surprise there. It’s been almost 3 weeks since the All-Star game and the team has managed to win 2 games. Depressing. Rather than just be all doom and gloom, I’ve decided that I’m going to just look at the silver lining. For instance during last night’s […]

Wait, What Just Happened?
July 27th, 2012 by slangon

What is this strange feeling I’m feeling this morning? I’m not in a super cranky mood. I’m holding my head up just a little bit higher. I have a bit of a spring in my step. I haven’t felt like this since before the All-Star break. Oh, that’s right. This is how you feel when […]

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, […]

All Hail Dickey
June 14th, 2012 by slangon

Last night, R.A. Dickey pitched a gem of a game for the Mets. He threw a complete game, struck out 12, walked none, only gave up one unearned run and only allowed one hit. In the process, he became the first pitcher in the Majors to hit double digit wins and he set a new […]
