This Week in Mets Quotes: McNeil says Mets still fighting, Rojas Mets still have a chance

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports Lots of interesting, funny, idiotic, and insightful things were said by the Mets—and about them—recently. Here are some of our favorites. Hello darkness, my old friend “We’re fighting for our lives now.” -Jeff McNeil [MLB] I’ve come to talk with you again “It’s tough to get swept and it’s tough to lose games against teams that you’re fighting for a spot.” -Luis Rojas [MLB] Because a vision softly creeping “Zero command and I was falling behind in a lot of counts. I was just giving up hits left and right.”...

“Once Upon a Time in Queens” is a thrilling recollection of Mets glory

“Once Upon a Time in Queens” is a thrilling recollection of Mets glory

Photo by Focus On Sport/ The latest 30 for 30 installment is stunningly made and will appeal to all, not just Mets fans. Earlier this week, ESPN aired the (much-publicized) latest entry in their acclaimed 30 for 30 series, Once Upon a Time in Queens. Last year the network had a smash hit with The Last Dance, a documentary series focused on the career of Michael Jordan and his final season in Chicago. Following the success of that, they quickly announced this four part series, directed by Nick Davis, to air in time to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the last New York...

Mets conclude homestand with three against the Phillies

Mets conclude homestand with three against the Phillies

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports The Mets are all but playing out the string at this point. The Mets (72-75) will welcome the Phillies (74-72) to town as they finish up their nine-game homestand. So far this season, they have won five out of seven against Philadelphia at Citi Field, though they have split their 16 games overall so far in 2021. The Mets are coming off a demoralizing sweep against the Cardinals, which all but put an end to their dim playoff dreams. They entered the series two games behind St. Louis with a chance to leapfrog them in the Wild Card standings,...

NY Mets: Francisco Lindor nearing .230 for first time since Opening Day

Surely, New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor had some point of the 2021 season where he leaped over the .230 mark and had a respectable batting average. There was no doubt in my mind this happened at one point. Maybe it was early on when a single hit could raise his average a few dozen […] NY Mets: Francisco Lindor nearing .230 for first time since Opening Day - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community

UnforMETable: Mike Scott

UnforMETable: Mike Scott

Before he almost dashed the Mets’ hopes in 1986 as an opponent, he dashed the team’s hopes in him as a frustrating prospect. Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The Mets drafted Mike Scott in the second round of the 1976 draft, hoping the hard-throwing right-hander would develop into a future pitching star. Unfortunately, Scott never developed a secondary pitch and his Mets career would fizzle out. After some mixed success in his first couple of years in Houston, Scott would...

Mets Morning News for September 17, 2021

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links Meet the Mets The Mets did not play a baseball game yesterday, which was probably in the best interest of everyone’s mental health following their demoralizing sweep at the feet of the Cardinals. The Mets will resume playing baseball games tonight against the Phillies, who currently sit in second place in the division. A sweep would give the Mets life in both the divisional and wild-card races, while any other result would further decrease their already slim chances...

Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show): Bad Play, Bad Tweets

The Mets look like toast, and their owner looks petty. Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore. The Mets took two of three games from the Yankees over the weekend, giving one last injection of hope into this maddening season. But then the Cardinals came to town, and the Mets’ season looks more lost than ever. Plus, Steve Cohen continues to tweet, and no one seems particularly happy about that.
