In this video clip former Mets play-by-play guy Bob Murphy endorses Reingold beer.  7 ounce cans and a logo thought up by a third grader, what more could you ask for in a beer.  Enjoy the video.

Will Omar Minaya Be The Mets General Manager in 2011?
At the end of the season the Mets ownership will have some hard decisions to make.  I think it is a foregone conclusion that Jerry Manuel is done with the team after his contract expires this offseason.  Now as for Omar Minaya, it could get a little more complicated.
I believe that there are two scenarios that could occur regarding the general manager position this offseason, both of whi...

Mets Round up: Mejia, Frenchy, and World Series Drought
I thought it would be a good idea to look at some of the big news from Mets country so far this week.
The biggest news is that Jenrry Mejia might get the start Saturday in Chicago, after a dominate first start for Triple A Buffalo.  A little advice to the Mets, don't rush your best pitching prospect.  The Mets should not pitch him Saturday after just one start at the Triple A level....

A Team Within A Team: The Mets $50 Million Dollar Untouchables
If the Mets are stuck paying the rest of K-Rod's contract, the Mets could be paying four players a total of $50 million dollars that might produce little or nothing for the 2011 ball club.
K-Rod, Carlos Beltran, Luis Castillo, and Oliver Perez will all receive their pay from the Mets next season, but there are no guarantees that any of them will even be major contributors to th...

What Should The New York Mets Do With R.A. Dickey?
With all that has gone wrong with this season, Robert Alan Dickey has been a pleasant surprise for Mets fans.
The soon to be 36 year old Dickey, has had by far his best season in MLB this year, posting a sub 3.00 ERA and nine wins in just 20 starts.  His success has been based on varying the speed on his knuckleball from the low 80's to the mid 50's on the gun. 
Given this success,...

Friday's Awesome Mets Video Clip- August 27th
It's Friday again and that means another Awesome Mets Video Clip!  Today another commercial from former Mets catcher Gary Carter for Ivory soap.
Couple things to watch for in this one.  The pitch that you should use Ivory soap because it's "honest".  You know it is an 80's commercial when they begin to give human characteristics to soap or anything other than humans.  Last thin...

Nyjer Morgan Heckled Me At A Mets Game
The news of Nyjer Morgan being suspended for hitting a fan in Philadelphia with a ball comes with no surprise to me.  In a post I wrote in May at my internship at SeatGeek I chronicled my experience one night with Morgan.  You can read the original post here.  You can also see the mention of the post in Yahoo's Big League Stew here.
For those of you who just want a laugh t...

Not Everything Omar Minaya Has Done Has Been Bad For The Mets
All I hear is people bash Omar for signing Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo to contracts they probably didn't deserve, but where is all the praise for the positive additions that he has made happen?
I bring this up because yesterday Philip Humber of the Kansas City Royals won his first MLB game yesterday.  Humber, Carlos Gomez, Kevin Mulvey, and Deolis Guerra, were the four minor league prospec...
