All of NYC is wrapped up in the Jets run to the Super Bowl (47 % of all the television sets in the Metro NY area were tuned to the Jets-Chargers game Sunday, that’s about 10 mil TV’s WOW!!!) so Mets news is fighting for space in the NY sports media but there is a few items of interest:

If you listen to Pro Baseball Central last Thursday you heard the song Metropolitans that I played to start the show. It’s a punk/garage version of Meet The Mets and it should be the 8th inning song played at $iti Field. But of course Mets management are tragically un-hip so it won’t happen, but it will be a staple of Pro Baseball Central. Check out the band who wrote and performs the song the 45 Adapters at their website and check out their new EP “Not One More Day”

The Mets are going to Louisiana to checkout the workout of Ben Sheets. There are about a dozen teams looking a Sheets but the Mets may have a bit of an inside track. Sheets’ named his son Seaver after Tom Terrific.

Art Shamsky’ new website is up and running and if you’re a long time Mets fan you’ll enjoy the features on the site.

I would love to have Eric Byrnes on the Mets. A guy off injury who plays balls to the wall type of game that the Mets sorely need and he’s a very good outfielder. But I doubt it will happen. Makes too much sense to sign him.

You may want to clip and save this article, if Jason Bay comes up with a bum knee this season.

  1. Hey, thanks for playing the song! Anyone who visits our site can download a copy of it free for now.

    I’m really hoping that the Red Sox are just experiencing sour grapes. Gammons is practically a part of their organization! Of course, after all of the Beltran knee stuff, the Church brain trauma stuff, etc. it’s hard to totally discount it.

  2. How could I forget Reyes?

  3. I se Art on teh streets all the time, he lives around the corner from my office. What a great guy. Will always stop and chat.

  4. Can we petition the Mets to use your song during the 7th inning stretch?

  5. Molina signs with Giants- YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Delgado may go back to Toronto- YES!!!!!!!!!

    It took the SF Giants and perhaps the Jays to save us from Omar’s stupidity. Whatever, we don’t have to look at Molina for two years and that is just AWESOME!!!!!!!

    Now, get Torrealba, let the water flow under the bridge with him and sign him.

    Maybe the baseball spirits are feeling bad for us and saving us from our GM.

  6. From Metsblog, a quote from Verducci on the past decade:

    “How badly run are the Mets? Think about this: the Mets played in a World Series and still were the least efficient team in baseball. They spent $737.5 million more than Florida and won four more games than the Marlins.”

    And Omar has a job? Really? Come on!
