Mets by the Numbers

The Mets Website That Counts

Keep Your Shirt On

Those awful Mets play in Houston tonight with lefty Jon Niese on the mound. Niese in a stint I'd already forgotten ever happened this year wore No. 49 and is still available for him. To make room on the roster the Mets got around to disabling Gary Sheffield who naturally isn't happy about it.

Like the next guy I'm interested in seeing how the whole Tony Bernanzard drama plays out, not because I think he's the devil, necessarily, but because how it unravels might reveal something of how this ridiculous organzation works. As I understand things, Bernazard at this time last year looked as if he might be the future king of the Mets, only to see Omar Minaya get the contract extension after the year. With some conflicting reports arriving as to Bernazard's behavior I'm wondering who the sources are and what their motivation is. I also wonder if it wouldn't have been even better had he taken his pants off.

Thanks to everyone who showed up Amazin' Tuesday this week at Two Boots. Newly linked blogger Section Five Twenty Eight has a terrific account of it. We're doing it again on August 25 (I'll miss that event but I'd urge you to attend anyway) and on Sept. 15.

Away Uni's

Anyone else notice that the team's been wearing the same black jerseys with "Mets" across the chest over the past 4 games on their road trip? Anyone know what the deal is? Maybe they're ditching the "New York" on their away threads?

Yes

They actually have canned the NEW YORK on the black away unis all season long, so there's no difference between the home and away blacks (but for the Citifield patch?). For whatever reason they wore the black often on this trip, maybe you've noticed more.

What's up with that?

All this reminds of a question that I've never seen answered...why does Charlie Samuels get to decide which unis they wear for each game? why does he have so much power?

Does anybody know?

I've read that once it was the pitcher starting that day who decided the uniform colors... don't know if that's still the case.

Too much front office - not

Too much front office - not enough baseball...

Finally!

We have a proper scapegoat for this horrible season. It's that damn Adam Rubin. I knew he was trouble from the day he started his beat 7 years ago.

Mostly in sports matches we keep our shirts on otherwise this concept now use in public to be honest.Some time boys wear firefighter t-shirts during any sports match so if someone face problem they handle it.
