I’m really looking forward to N’Ebbets Field next year, what with the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and the Ebbets Field look….but I may have uncovered a secret mystery forever unknown to anyone who is emplyed by the Mets. Brace yourselves….
I think the Giants may have once played in New York.
Now I know you’re saying, “Mets Police you’re crazy! The only National League team to ever play in New York was the Dodgers.”
That’s what we’ve been led to believe by Fred Wilpon and his CitiField minions.
Now look at this picture on the left. It’s the Polo Grounds, original home of the Mets. The team is wearing the familiar NY logo on their caps…but look closely at the uniform. It says “G I A N T S.” Very mysterious.
Next we’ll take a look at Willie Mays. Not many Mets fans remember this broken down old outfielder. Sort of the Moises Alou of his day. There’s really nothing remarkable about this player, so there’s no reason to honor him or name a piece of Citifield after him.
But look at the picture on the right. It appears to be the same man, yet younger. He is wearing a familiar looking cap, and his jersey says New York. However, the picture is clearly from the 1950’s – BEFORE THERE WERE METS! How could this be? Could Willie Mays have played in New York City in the 1950’s?
How could this be possible if he were not on the Dodgers???
More of our investigation to this rumored and possibly forgotten team tomorrow.
It’s too bad the Colts don’t play the Jets this year, but how about moving the Jets game on November 9th to Shea Stadium.
Sure there are some logistics – but they move games from time to time and the world doesn’t end. The NFL is able to move Saints games to Giants Stadium and Europe, and they are really good at Personal Seat Licenses so don’t tell me it can’t be done.
If there is even talk of closing out Yankee Stadium with a hockey game, surely closing out Shea with the return of the Jets is a better idea.
Some good lines from last night.
I Heart Jerry: â€œIf you would have lost this game, obviously, it would have been a devastating thing.â€ The previous manager would have sugarcoated it with it’s a long season, 162 games, blah blah….but to be fair so would the guy managing the first place Dodgers.
Omar on Bonds chances of joining the Mets: “Zero point zero zero.”
2.5 back with the formerly New York Giants in town. Don’t suck. Let’s go, Mets!
As several folks have pointed out, I have put my foot in my mouth and unfairly accused Omar Minaya of making the Scott Kazmir trade when in fact it was Jim Duquette.
I was inaccurate. Good job out of those who watch the watchers.
I don’t know what else to say other than I’m an idiot and own up to it.
I enjoy watching your baseball games in October. You probably enjoy playing them and think of them as a birth rite.
As you look at your schedule this week, do not be fooled into thinking that these three games against the “Devil Rays” will be easy. They won’t be. The rays have cast aside the Devil, and now have the best record in baseball. No, really.
This is the most important series you’ve played all year and you must sweep. The clock is starting to run and it’s time to make up some games. The Rays have plenty of young pitching, including an all-star named Scott Kazmir (name sounds familiar, I can’t quite place it).
I’d like you guys to be there in October. Hopefully we can close out both stadiums with a Subway Series. If that can’t happen, maybe Joe Torre’s Dodgers will show up. Either way, you need to sweep.
