NWO: New Worst Order

I saw Greg's tweet yesterday and I had to make this photoshop...

Here is the article that got me going....

New Worst Order

The problem when your team has given up double-digit runs in ten different games in a season that is only seventy games old — and five times in a month that still has ten days to go — is keeping track of which of those losses is the worst. It’s tough, I suppose, to top (or bottom) the 23-5 farce at the hands of the Nationals from April 30, the one that featured three Anthony Rendon home runs, Kevin Plawecki’s pitching debut and Noah Syndergaard’s probable 2017 farewell. The lightning-quick burial of Tommy Milone by the Angels in a 12-5 romp on May 21 also springs to mind. Oh, and what about the Mother’s Day Massacre in Milwaukee, wherein a 7-1 midgame Mets lead dissolved into a 11-9 loss to the Brewers? Personally, I retain a sore spot for that flaming pile of baseball.

Read the rest here....

Terry Collins: Twitter Doesn't Pay My Salary

Thanks to @shmantzMets for the video

Hey Colactus, I don't know if you realize this or not but a lot of the folks on twitter that "don't pay your salary" actually do. Who do you think buys tickets to the games or watch the games on TV that the Mets owners get the money from the TV rights that helps pay your salary?So, yeah twitter folks do kinda help pay your salary. Do I think a lot of the things said on twitter about the Mets is off the wall? Sure do, but, and there is a big but here. Terry you have to realize that twitter is part of the fanbase and there are plenty of
fans who are over you being the manager..

Mets: Mercury Mets Pregame Video

I just fell down the Mercury Mets rabbit hole last night. I haven't seen these videos in a while.

I can't believe that the Mets Org used to like to have "fun" doing stuff like this. Silly Silly fun. Silly cheesy fun...

Mets: Mercury Mets Ad

I am just going to leave this right here folks.

Mets: Wow

I didn't get to see that game last night but wow. This is getting down right pathetic. I know a lot of it has to do with injuries and depth on the bench etc etc. When as an organization do you throw in the towel and try to make some moves to revitalize the team and start trying to salvage the season so you aren't a laughing stock?

Barwis and this training staff needs to be evaluated and figure out why so many players are hurt with muscle strains and tears. The medical staff seems to take a brunt of the blame when the players are returned to action too early and then hurt again. Who really makes the call?

Start figuring out who is going to be here next year and start moving pieces that will help you get some players or something in return then just a draft pick. Figure out the manager and coaching staff for next year. See what's going on with Gsellman. Something is off.

Bring up Rosario. Cut bait with Reyes. Stop with the " Well what if Rosario does bad?" routine? Well guess you'd find out what kind of mettle he has.

Do something to keep the fans engaged. Do something that shows you care about making this team a playoff contender again next year. Good thing the team is on a west coast swing. Wouldn't want to bring any players you need from Vegas now. Way better to wait until the Mets are back east to do that.

Jerseys: MLB Trying To Have Fun With Jerseys

Can't wait to see how the knockoff jerseys are going to look with nicknames. Also how will this effect getting jerseys customized by MLB SHOP and MAJESTIC..

Protoype Los Mets

Prototype Los Mets

Major League Baseball will relax its uniform rules for a weekend later this season, allowing players to put nicknames on the back of their jerseys, wear fluorescent-colored shoes and personalize a patch paying tribute to someone instrumental in their development, according to a memo obtained by Yahoo Sports.
The event, called Players Weekend, is planned for Aug. 25-27 and was negotiated between the league and MLB Players Association. Players long have sought to express their personal style on the field and capitalize on the intersection of fashion and sports in a way other leagues don’t allow, and the result will be a test of boundaries baseball may be inclined to stretch in the future depending on the weekend’s success.
Players will have the option to wear a jersey with a nickname – though they are limited to just one, according to the memo, and “inappropriate or offensive” nicknames will be banned.

Matt Cerrone Book Signing

This Friday in Eastchestrer. Read bout my first pitch at Citi Field. That's right. I am in the book.

Knockoff Throw Ahead the Clock Jerseys

Buyer beware. This has just totally annoyed me. Look now they are knocking these off.



Here is a custom remake of the Turn Ahead the Clock jersey from the Cleveland Indians. This design was used for select games during the late 90s when the MLB was doing a promotion with Century 21 by using futuristic jersey designs for select teams in the 97-99 MLB seasons. 
These are impossible to find and run up to the multiple hundreds of dollars. This is a very high quality replica version of those originals at a fraction of the price.
This custom made design features the same sublimation dye techniques as the originals. Made from durable high quality stretch polyester knit fabric. From a professional jersey supplier famous for making jerseys for various leagues. They are un-lettered and untagged, ready for your customization of any Indians player past or present.

Available in size men's XL only.
Measures about 27 inches wide and 32 inches long in the front and 34 inches in the rear.

Check out my other listings of rare and unusual or vintage jerseys!

Here are 2 more

No tag on front. Illegal to make due to using team/MLB Logo. I have been putting together a collection of TATC Jerseys and this just makes me so annoyed to see.

Thanks @metspolice for giving me a heads up.
