Thanks jerks for telling the Mets you like Saturday night games

weather for April 19

During the off-season the Mets mentioned that their research told them that fans prefer Saturday night game.

Now maybe that’s true in July and August, but in April?  Do you really want a 7pm game tonight?  It’s a beautiful sunny Saturday and instead we’re going to wait until the sun goes down so we can be uncomfortable at the park.


Farewell Ike Davis Cowboy meme

Long-time readers know that every time I go away and leave @mediagoon in charge the Mets are sure enough to announce something major.  I thought we were going to get away with it this time but sure enough I got in the car for a long drive up the east coast, put the radio on WOR (which does not have the signal WFAN has and boy that Cuban station at 710 steps all over it – the Cuban station is a real thing I am not just vamping, there is a station in Havana that broadcasts at 710 and doesn’t follow FCC rules so they power-up)….where was I, oh yeah Howie told me Ike Davis had been traded.

And so we say goodbye to the Ike Davis Cowboy, one of my favorite memes.  It was fun to break this one out on twitter when Ike did something bad.  It was also fun to break it out on twitter when Ike did something good and write the tweet in the “voice of Ike Davis” making fun of me.

When Ike would do something really good I would break this one out.

Nothing like swinging the big bat and hanging out with Miss America, right?

So farewell Ike.  I have seen this show before and I have no doubt you will win the MVP within three seasons.

And to the beat writers who anointed you way back when….those same beat writers who made fun of Daniel Murphy for never being good enough…to you I say #imwith28 and MURPH IS STILL HERE!

Adios cowboy…see you down the road.

This is the Mets batting helmet you can get on April 26th

This was always a winner back in the 70′s!

Adios Ike Davis(@Mets trade with Pirates)

Well, it finally happened, Ike Davis is now a former Met. Traded to the Pirates for a minor league pitcher and a player to be named later.
As the WWE says when they release a wrestler “We wish Ike Davis luck on all future endeavors”.


Happy trials to you. Btw this trade happened because @metspolice is traveling.

So how do we feel about this Mets pop-tonal cap?

@Mets and At the Ballpark App Has In Game Seat Upgrades


This came to me earlier in my mailbox.
Fans can now upgrade their tickets in game. Plan holders get first shot at the upgrade 50mins before game time. Of course you have to pay to upgrade the seats, but I don’t know what the price difference is going to be. Maybe I’ll test it out on Sunday.

Okay- so Ron sent me this on twitter


I contacted my ticket rep and asked him if that was true.
This is what he said-

/When someone purchases an upgrade through the app, they will have a new “ticket” on the phone that features a “Validate” button. The usher’s will use that but to validate the ticket and allow them into the new section. It is not a PDF per se, but it will be all they need. From everything I’ve been told, it is a very user friendly app.

Hopefully this clears things up
