When I first started to be a Mets fan in the late seventies the team sucked. As I grew into my teens the organization was acquiring the talent that would lead to 1986 world series champions. Just as I was getting more heavily into my fandom players like Keith Hernandez and George Foster were being […]
In these troubling times for the Mets it’s nice to remember the good old days and take hear that things will get better. Just take it from these guys:
Friday – Scott Olsen (0-2, 9.00) vs. Johan Santana (2-1, 0.46), 7:10 p.m., SNY. Saturday – Daniel Cabrera (0-1, 4.50) vs. Mike Pelfrey (1-0, 8.10), 1:10 p.m., SNY. Sunday – Jordan Zimmerman (1-0, 3.00) vs. Oliver Perez (1-1, 7.80), 1:10 p.m., PIX-11.

1962â€”After an 0-9 start, the expansion New York Mets won their first game beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-1 behind Jay Hook.
One of the questions being asked about the Mets right now is whether manager Jerry Manuel should move second baseman Luis Castillo back to the number two hole in the order.
