Update: The Mets have informed me that this is 1969 World Series Pricing. Thanks Mets! Original post below.
The Mets have a nice sale on Sunday for the (stupid) night game. However, to suggest these are 1969 Prices is silly.
On Thursday, The New York Mets and the City of New York will honor Hall of Famer Tom Seaver by changing the address of Citi Field to 41 Seaver Way as well as renaming the street between Northern Blvd. and Roosevelt Ave. to Seaver Way.
Mets COO Jeff Wilpon, Members of the 1969 team – Jerry Koosman, Cleon Jones, Ron Swoboda plus Tom Seaver’s children and grandchildren are expected to attend the ceremony.
This is good. Also a shame Tom couldn’t be there, which is why they should have done a statue 11 years ago but we don’t have a time machine, so let’s do what we can with the time we have.
The Washington Post has the best recap of the Callaway Incident that I have read so far, and is definitely worth your click to see some of the comments by Tim Healy.
“I was in no way trying to be aggressive or antagonistic or anything. At that point in the day, I want to talk to Diaz and then leave, you know? What’s the point in me trying to pick a fight?” (via Washington Post)
Now in that article is a weird tweet from Mike Puma of the New York Post in which Puma says “possible that Mickey Callaway is trying to get fired.” That’s a heck of a thing to mention in a tweet. The language chosen is very Aldersonesque and makes me wonder if it is possible that Mike Puma is trying to get fired. That is conceivable to me. Sandy taught me how to parse language well. Perhaps Puma wrote more in the newspaper, but that’s some bomb to throw in a tweet.
UPDATE: a friend has pointed me toward Mike’s comments on the radio where he elaborates more. It still sounds speculative to my ear but hey, let’s hear from Mike himself..
“I’ll knock you the f*** out, bro” – Jason Vargas, June 23, 2019.
In case you missed it, Mickey lost his cool and the Mets issued a statement.
SLACKISH REACTION: Here’s a road the Mets could take. “Tim, I lost my cool yesterday and I am sorry. I should never have said that to you.” And that’s it. I think Mickey is a nice decent man and we all sometimes lose our cool. I don’t think this is why the guy should get fired, we have plenty of baseball reasons for that. I actually saw someone suggest they demote him to pitching coach, which obviously would never happen, but yeah that.
Phil Regan for MANAGER….
Oh yeah, remember when Pete Alonso broke Strawberry’s rookie HR record? That happened yesterday. Did Wayne Randazzo have a better call than Gary Cohen?
When is baseball going to enforce their own rules?
I’ll Knock You The Eff Out t-shirts will be on sale shortly.
NOT LINKING: Let us not let the other sites off the hook. Here at Mets Police I have been very loud about the Mickey Mafia. Now they all act like he was never the right guy for the job. Oh? Your sites have 50+ writers each, maybe get a take right now and then.
And meanwhile here at Mets Police…
SNY reports that the Mets have issued a statement which says
“The Mets sincerely regret the incident that took place with one of our beat writers following today’s game in the clubhouse,” the team said. “We do not condone this type of behavior from any employee. The organization has reached out and apologized to this reporter and will have further discussions internally with all involved parties.”
Further discussions internally.
The Mickey Watch Watch continues.
