Please Spare Me Another Quick Fix

Just a quick note before I get started here. I want to take a minute to thank those of you who continue to support this blog despite the circumstances in my life that have led to what was essentially a lost summer. I'd also like to thank the contributing bloggers...

Savor the Irony

As I watched the Mets come from behind to just about dash the Fish's dwindling playoff shot, I was surprised that it didn't mean just a little bit more to me. For two straight years the teal-clad bunch played loose with nothing of their own to lose and ended the...

September 24

Today is the first anniversary of the most disappointing game I ever attended at Shea stadium. To mark it, I would like to share a portion of a chapter of my new book The Last Days of Shea: Delight and Despair in the Life of a Mets Fan. I hope...

The Future of Daniel Murphy

Whether you like Daniel Murphy, as I do, or not, his 2009 season has inarguably been a disappointment. The Post's Joel Sherman went as far as identifying Murphy as "one of the key faces of the Mets' failure in 2009", but that strikes me as just hyperbole. In my last...

We're Back, and This Time We Mean It

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend a Mets game with Dana Brand, Greg Prince and Matthew Silverman. Dana was kind enough to provide the tickets and ride to the game (we live about 20 miles apart up here in Connecticut), and Greg and Matt kicked in some great...

Road to Nowhere

Next weekend's road trip to South Florida was first conceived way back in April, when hope sprang eternal and the Mets were hovering near first place. The Southern Bureau staff of Mike's Mets (me and MetsFanSZ) had it all planned out. We'd watch the Mets pound the Marlins on Saturday...

Going Forward

There was a lot of hoopla over Jayson Stark's "break it all down and start over" prescription for fixing the Mets at ESPN.com last week. I don't think Stark got everything wrong, but the piece read very much like it was written by a Phillies beat writer, which is indeed...

Cruel September

I started writing this blog in August of 2005. The Mets under rookie manager Willie Randolph had treaded water around the .500 mark for most of the season, and then put a little run together in late August to force themselves into the pennant race. The highlight was the end...
