NY Mets Campaigning Hard for Jacob DeGrom for NL Cy Young

About a month ago I mentioned to a fellow Mets‘ fan that it would be nice to see the Mets push the narrative that Jacob deGrom should win the 2018 NL Cy Young regardless of his record.

Respect to the Mets (and because they are my squad do or die), they have capping real hard for deGrom over the past month or so. Constant discussion from the broadcast team, they pushed the agenda on their social media with the hashtag #48forCy

The Mets also put together a cool lil video…

I am often very critical of the Mets organization, but I have to give them their props for getting something right. Now if they can just operate like a team in one of the largest media markets…

@Mets vs. @Yankees the 2015 Edition #SubwaySeries

Full Disclosure, I am a HARDCORE Mets fan and I hate the Yanks aka the Skanks!

Once again it’s that time of the year in the baseball season; New York Mets vs New York Yankees!

Inter-league play started back in 1997 and for Mets fans, outside of the 2000 World Series and the 2006 playoff run, Mets’ fans have looked forward to the Subway Series.

And after all these years the Subway Series has lost its initial luster, but now we have the 2015 edition of the Subway Series!

For the first time the two teams will meet with both teams in 1st place, and both teams coming in on a high note.

The Mets are currently riding a 11-game winning streak and owning the best record in baseball (13-3). Their young squad with pitching studs Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, 2014 Gold-Glove center fielder Juan Lagares, rising star behind the plate Travis d’Arnaud (injured), and Lucas Duda are leading a revival in Queens. Of course we cannot forget about the ‘Captain’ David Wright who was looking like his old self before straining his hamstring.

The Yankees after a slow start, finished a strong road-trip going 7-3 and taking 2 out of 3 from the powerful Detroit Tigers. Working thru a transition from the golden age of the ‘Core 4’ (Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte), the Yanks veterans seem to be coming together with unlikely heroes in Alex Rodriguez and former Mets cast-off Chris Young. Jacob Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Mark Teixeira round out this experienced team. If they can live up to their impressive resumes they will be a tough team offensively.

This should be a great series, as a Mets fan I am beyond excited! Looking forward to seeing deGrom and Harvey cleanup the Bronx!!!!

HAHA, anyone that knows me knew I was going to at least take one shot at the Skanks!

Let’s Go Mets!!!!!!!!!

@Mets Logo Change?

ICYMI and you probably did unless you are a die-hard New York Mets fan, Mets twitter fandom kind of blew up last night with when some fans noticed a slight change to the traditional logo on the Mets Facebook and Twitter account. This subtle change was well documented by @MetsPolice; Mets Logo Change

The Mets logo since their inception in 1962 has always been the following

The building circled on the right is the UN building, and for whatever reason the Mets PR dept recently changed to the following logo on their social media

Now notice the UN building replaced by the ‘601 Lexington Tower’ formerly known as the Citigroup building. Rumors started swirling that this change was a result of the Mets selling out to Citigroup which is the namesake of their home Citi Field. That rumor quickly died as someone noted the building is no longer owned by Citigroup, but still the question remained why the change?

According to Adam Rubin (beat writer for the Mets), the Mets have formally stated there have been no changes to the logo

Only the Mets could have something like this happen and have it turn into some kind of story. In all honesty when the story broke on twitter last night it did give me a reason not to pay attention to the Mets losing another game they should have won last night.

I will say, it is good to see there are still hardcore Mets fans, we are a special breed!

Side note, Mets fans already know this but Jacob deGrom is a special talent. If you get a chance, watch a game when this kid pitches. Started last night’s game striking out the first 8 batters he faced; finished the game with 13-Ks. In 2015 the Mets should have a dynamic 1-2 punch with Matt Harvey and deGrom.

Doc Gooden Documentary Tonight on SNY

It’s hard to believe that it has been 30-years since Dwight “Doc” Gooden made his MLB debut for the New York Mets. Tonight SNY will debut its documentary about Doc Gooden’s rise and fall as a young 19-year old in the Big Apple.

Before Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, Doc Gooden was ‘Must Watch TV’!!!

‘The Good Doctor’ airs tonight on SNY at 9:30pm (Eastern)
