Mets memorabilia

With the dog days of summer upon us – and the state of the current team leaving much to be desired – we decided to do a special “Mets Memorabilia” episode of our podcast. JonnyIce literally grabbed some of his line-up cards and nameplates at random, and boy did we have fun going down memory…More

This day in Mets history: July 28

Saw a lot of tweets this morning on some notable trades and moments that took place on on this day in recent Mets history, so I thought I’d jot down a couple of quick memories. Away we go… Hey Bubba! Real Mets Legends noted on this day in 2000 the Mets acquired Bubba Trammell and…More

ARRRGH: Mets Heartbreaks vs. PIT

Last night’s loss to the Pirates is still hard to believe. Especially after thinking about Sunday’s similarly blown lead to this lowly team. I haven’t even had a chance to connect with JonnyIce, who was there adding to his on-the-road experiences. But after two cups of Sunday morning coffee, the rationale side of me says…More

Amazin’ Mets All-Star Memories

With the second half of the season about to start, we decided to walk down memory lane and re-visit memorable Mets moments in the All Star game. In our latest podcast episode, we run down a list that of moments shared by an Amazin’ Avenue article, as well as our own personal memories. We also…More

Photo: Mets-Pirates Line-up Card (Sept. 26, 1991)

As the Mets get ready to take on the Pittsburgh Pirates in a doubleheader later today, it’s only fitting that JonnyIce happened to receive his latest eBay find: A game used line-up card from Game 2 of the Mets-Pirates doubleheader in 1991! If you ever needed a historical record of how bland (awful?) the ’91…More

Walk-off Memories: Mets vs. Brewers

The first place Mets start a three-game series against the red-hot, Central division-leading Milwaukee Brewers tonight. While the Mets lead the all-time series 78-69, these two franchises have produced some very memorable moments on and off-the-field. From Mike Piazza‘s first game to Robin Ventura‘s ‘Grand’ Day to Wilmer Flores’ tears … you get the point.…More

The Bobby Bonilla Episode

Since it’s July 1, today seems like a good time to talk Bobby Bonilla. Yes, he gets props for his big annual pay day, but no one seems to talk about his upbringing and MLB career. So we decided to dive in on that in this episode. And if you’re looking to better understand the…More

Pedro Martinez vs. Jacob deGrom

Yesterday I had a chance to see Jacob deGrom pitch in-person for the first time since a 2015 home game. As previously noted on our podcast, the weekend home games we typically go to tend to involve our number 4 or 5 in the rotation. While it wasn’t his most dominant performance, it was still…More

Episode 23: The Mets Birthday Edition

The birthday segment of our podcast tends to get the most feedback from listeners. So, we decided to do a full episode on this week’s Mets birthdays. Players covered include: Devin Mesoraco Doug Mientkiewicz, the Game 7 baseball fiasco and his boat Collin McHugh Logan Verrett and his role in this infamous game Jacob deGrom…More

Is Jacob deGrom a Video Game?

This morning I played Game 1 of the World Series in MLB The Show ’19 with Jacob deGrom on the mound. His final stat line? 9 IP, 0ER, 2H, 0 BBs and 17Ks. His stats through this season’s playoffs? 3-0, 0.84 ERA, with 44Ks over 21.1 IP and a WHIP of 0.38. So it got…More
