Former Albany Star Helps St. Lucie Mets Win Championship
Former Albany Star Helps St. Lucie Mets Win Championship
It's not easy to play college baseball in the northeast. The season officially starts in mid-February. Your home field is usually buried by six inches of icy snow. If you are lucky enough to practice outdoors, every batted ball comes with a nice sting, as the wind brings your eyes to tears. Fun stuff. That's why after tearing up America East pitching in 2022, a former University at Albany baseball star got signed by the New York Mets in July. This week he helped the single-A St. Lucie Mets win a championship.
End of 13 Year Draught May Prove To Be Special In New York
End of 13 Year Draught May Prove To Be Special In New York
Since the turn of the century, there have been some constants in New York sports. The Yankees are most likely to be pretty good and make the playoffs. The Giants will win a Super Bowl every decade or so. The Mets are bad, ok, good and then will collapse and now seem really good. The Jets are terrible and yes, they won on Sunday but have a long way to go before that classification is lifted. I will provide Robert Saleh a receipt for that statement for his files.

Do You Care If The NFL or New York Mets Scan Your Face?
In the never ending pursuit to get fans in the stadium faster and more efficiently, the New York Mets joined the Cleveland Browns, among others, and began scanning your face, as you enter Citi Field. Beginning at the start of the 2022 season, billionaire owner of the Metropolitans, Steve Cohen expanded an optional, facial-recognition ticketing program at the entrances of Citi Field. The hopes are that you'll get in the gate faster but some fear that there could be other dangers.

Former Red Sox Star Thinks This New York Met May Be Best Ever
When you want to find out who is the best at something, you ask people that are in the same business. You ask people that compete against that person or business. When it comes to great Major League Baseball players, a guy like former Boston Red Sox star, Los Angelas Dodgers' outfielder Mookie Betts is probably a solid reference. Betts dished out some hefty praise on a New York Mets pitcher on Wednesday night and that player had nothing to do with Timmy Trumpet.
It’s OK For New York Mets To Embrace Their Past
It’s OK For New York Mets To Embrace Their Past
On Saturday, 65 former New York Mets took the field at Citi Field in Queens. For some of them, like Steve Dillon, who pitched 3 games for the Amazin's in 1963-64, it was more than five decades since they put on their uniform for an official event. For others, like friend of The Drive with Charlie & Dan, Daniel Murphy, who retired in two seasons ago, they look like they could play later in the day against the Rockies and contribute. The event was as much fun for the players as it was for the fans to see their heroes of yesteryear.
Clock Turns Back For Former New York Mets On Saturday
Clock Turns Back For Former New York Mets On Saturday
Old Timer's Day began for the New York Mets in the magical year of 1969. Good things happened that year, including their "Amazin" World Championship, amongst a myriad of major world events. The scrooge-like former Mets owners, Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz killed the beloved event in 1994. They were probably tired of hearing former Mets players mock their ownership's lack of baseball knowledge...but that's a story for another day. Old Timer's Day is back and it's Saturday at Citi Field.

2015 New York Mets Playoff Hero Goes Deep on The Drive
2015 was a special year for the New York Mets. Prior to that, the Amazin's had not reached the World Series since 2000, when they lost in 5 games to the Yankees. Fans of the blue & orange were starved for post-season play. One player almost singlehandedly carried New York to their first National League Championship title since the turn of the century and he was nice enough to join The Drive with Charlie & Dan on Tuesday.

Sometimes baseball truly is a "Field of Dreams." Every once in a while, an unexpected, and to many an unknown, player comes along and does something great for a team in a clutch situation. Sometimes, that player has an All American dream backstory and at the same time, veteran players don't realize that player is even on their roster. That happened to the New York Mets on Sunday.

Only 4 New York Mets Had Ever Done This – Now It’s 5!
The excitement of getting that call that you are going to the big leagues is pretty special. When you are lucky enough to have mom, dad and the family in the stands, well, that's pretty cool too. Then add in that you play for an organization in first place, trying to hold off the defending World Champions in their ballpark and you are starting at third base. Okay, the butterflies in your stomach are the size of horses.

Is The Next David Wright Ready For New York & The Mets?
For the past six seasons, New York Mets fans have craved to fill the void at third-base left by their Captain, David Wright. Remember Eric Campbell in 2015 starting at third? Then fan favorite but couldn't fill the hole, Wilmer Flores took the job in 2016-17. Then there was the "Toddfather" Todd Frazier in 2018-19, followed by JD Davis and Jonathan Villar. Now, Eduardo Escobar is doing his best to fill #5's shoes at the hot-corner. He's fine but the Mets need better. Fear not, Blue & Orange faithful, the next David Wright has been blasting his way through the minor leagues on his way to Queens.

The 'Subway Series' is fun for fans but Tuesday and Wednesday are two games on the schedule for most of the Yankees and the Mets.

Which New York Team Will Land MLB’s New HR Derby King?
Newly minted MLB Home Run Derby champion Juan Soto put on a show Monday night in Los Angelas. The 23 year-old Nationals outfielder is fresh off of declining a 15-year/$440 million offer from Washington to stay put in the nation's capital. Only a few teams in Major League Baseball seem willing to stomach contract numbers like that and two of them reside in the Big Apple.
