Mets Color Shift Cap

I haven’t done a cap post in a bit – New Era posted some new stuff and it’s the weekend so….

I like it!  Of course no cap should ever be $40 but I like how that NY looks.  This cap would not look good on me…but it’s not bad,


Gil must Go: Gil babies Seaver and lets him fatten up on expansion teams

Oh NOW I SEE why Gary G started that last game.  I was wondering why Mr. Terrific wasn’t following Kooz like usual – Gil jiggered the lineup to give Gary the tough game so his prize pet could fatten up YET AGAIN against an expansion team.

This is the softest 17 wins I have ever seen.   Ooooh, I beat the Expos and Padres.   How about beating the Cubs and Cardinals man?

8 innings 0 runs.  Could you at least finish the thing?  Even I could go 8 scoreless against a Padres team that is  35-82.  What a joke.  The Mets really must want this kid to be the face of the franchise.  How about we score a run for Koosman man?  Maybe market him?

Have you heard of a single guy on the Padres?


This team infuriates me sometimes.

Oh yeah, in the second game the Mets won. Whatever.  I do think the kid McGraw is wasted in the bullpen. 


Lets see how Mets Twitter enjoyed Gary Apple on Friday night

Gary Apple has the call tonight at 7:15 on WPIX.  At least there won’t be an Energy Vampire.  #TeamJustine


Mets Police Morning Laziness: Same old Mets, Pete Alonso to win ROY…and thanks Gary Apple

SLACKISH REACTION:  Man, you guys love Gary Apple!  I logged into my stats dashboard and was like WHAT?!  My post about Gary Cohen being off for a few days is off to the races.  Yuge!

Anyway, the Mets lost.  I guess Jeff McNeil is actually the MVP?  Speaking of which – Fernando Tatis Jr. is likely out for the year which pretty much guarantees that Mr. Polar Bear will be the Rookie of the Year.

The Mets are two games out of the Wild Card and play on WPIX at 7:15.  GARY APPLE has the call!

There was lots of chatter again about Gary Apple, and I will do another twitter recap post shortly – but Keith/Apple was wayyy better than Ron/Apple.  Keith brings the danger and is always entertaining so it helped me stay awake all the way to the end.  Plus The Energy Vampire was off so I didn’t get my usual third inning wave of sleepiness.  I don’t know why SNY even pays for that position.  Justine Ward, who should have that job, popped on and said like two sentences.  Was that even worth her flight and hotel?  No.  It never is.

There’s nothing else to tell you about.  The Mets lost a baseball game.  People are already starting to get crazy again.  The winning streak age us back August and probably half of September.  Be thankful.


Mets Legends sweatshirt makes odd decision by including Gary Carter

I saw this one on Facebook.  Facebook is where all the merchants with advanced official licensing go to sell their wares.  You know, the guys who somehow can get MLB/NHL/Disney slash Marvel and DC Comics to all agree to be on the same officially licensed t-shirt.

This one caught my eye.  It’s called Legends.

Tommie Agee. Nice.

Cleon Jones.  Nice.  I see we are going for a 1969 theme here.  Very good.

Tom Seaver looking kinda 1970s ish but OK.   The Franchise very nice.

Don Clendenon in the middle.  Nice aggressive choice.

Jerry Grote…yep one of the main guys from that era…awesome…..

and Gary Carter.

Gary Carter?  I mean surely a legend but why is he on this sweatshirt?   Maybe one with Grote, Piazza and whoever else you want to have, sure.

Maybe one with Seaver, Wright, Keith and Piazza…sure.

Maybe one with Mookie, Doc, Darryl and Keith….sure.

But why this one?
