Good News and Bad News Mets Fantasy Campers





Good News. Clover Park Stadium is going to be getting a new stadium field. Bad News. If you were going to Mets Fantasy Camp, it won’t be ready for you to play on this year.

To me, one of the big selling points is to play on the field with former players being around you. At least they have a plan to still have it at a stadium albeit not the Mets “proper” one but at least there is a plan.

 “Clover Park Stadium Field -   For some background – many do not know that St. Lucie County owns the facility that we call home for Spring Training and Fantasy Camp.  The grounds crew are not Mets employees as well as most of the decisions regarding the overall facility are not a Mets decision. The county has approved the complete tear down and rebuild of the stadium field.  Unfortunately that means Fantasy Camp can’t  use the main field this year.  Destruction is set to start immediately after the St. Lucie season ends in early September and the field will not be ready until February.  The field has not been redone since it was built in the  1980’s. New state of the art drainage and plumbing will be installed.

Fantasy camp looks to use  the stadium at Lawnwood (also county owned) which is a very nice facility about 10 minutes from Clover Field. They will bus campers over there.

This still sounds fun and it’s good to see the field being taken care of.

Joe Pignatano passed away

Mets Fans Won’t Need These Shorts In Colorado this weekend

 

Keep your New York Mets spirit going even when you head to bed by wearing these Flagship Allover Print Knit Jam shorts from Concepts Sport. They are covered in New York Mets graphics and made of soft material with a little added stretch for better comfort. An adjustable waistband also lets you choose the most comfortable fit.

You can find these at lids.com.

Tomorrow, May 21st, the Mets play in Colorado. It’s going to possibly snow and be in the 30s. I don’t think anyone will be rocking these shorts. Anyway what’s up with all the crazy logos? Might have looked better if it was just the NY and maybe the skyline.

Still the best food item at Citi Firld

 


Over the years there have been some challengers coming for the Pastrami Sandwich at Citi Fields crown. There was bacon on a stick. Gone. There was Mama’s of Corona. Gone. Keith’s Grill. Gone. Pat LaFrieda Steak Sandwich. Quality of the sandwich, gone. Blue Smoke. Gone. Two Boots Pizza. Gone. Box Frites. Gone. And there were others that had a cup of coffee in the ballpark and are gone but do you know what stayed? That’s right the reigning and defending undisputed champion of the ballpark. The Pastraaaaaaaaaammmii Sandwich. Its made for the ballpark. Seasoned well. Cooked well. There is a great fat to meat ratio to it, not too much, not too little. The mustard, rye bread, and pickles are perfect. This is the all around quintessential NYC food at a NYC ballpark.

I would put it up against Zabar’s, Pastrami Queen, and yes, even Katz’s in taste, quality, and bang for your buck.

Next time you go to a Mets game and you are hungry, get this damn sandwich!

Citi Field Food: Jacob’s Fried Pickles

 


I went to the game on Sunday and decided to take the opportunity to try Jacob’s pickles fried pickles. They definitely tasted pretty good. The coating that the pickles were deep fried in was pretty airy, didn’t flake off, and didn’t feel “heavy” to eat. The pickle itself tasted like a classic sour NYC pickle. You the know the type I’m talking about? The ones that you used to go down to the Lower East side to get by the container? Yeah those. The dipping sauce had a kick to it that could be seen as overpowering if you aren’t someone who likes that kind of kick. Overall I would have to say that I’d give Jacob’s Fried Pickles an 8.5/10. They were really good but not great and not a bad item to have once in a while at a game.

It’s weird not having a lot to write about the Mets.

 


What do you mean that there isn’t a lot to write about with the Mete? They are the first 20 game winning team of the 2020 season. They have had a combined no-hitter and one of the greatest come from behind wins in the ninth inning the other day. They have been winning/splitting series and haven’t lost a series yet. Yeah that’s great and I love that. But as a Mets fan advocacy blogger and I haven’t had to point out mistakes that the Mets have made in regards to the fans in the great numbers like I have in the past. Which makes me very happy.

However, we are still young in the season and we still have to see how the Mets handle the crowds that will be coming to Citi Field in the upcoming months. Will Aramark be staffed right? Will security be surly or pleasant? Will plan holders complain about being undercut by the Mets or a 3rd party seller when they try to resell?

I’m not going to be able to hit the game in Saturday but should be able to catch some of the game on Sunday. I am heavily booked doing things but still want to go see Seattle Mariners play. When the Mariners aren’t playing the Mets I am rooting for them because there are so many former Mets on that teams I’m going to try to see if Incan check some stuff out at Citi Field on Sunday and maybe I’ll have some stuff to write about.

We’ll see.

Mets win in a crazy one last night

 


That was some game last night. I know everyone says that the combined no hitter was special, but I feel that win last night was even more of a defining “moment” for this team. Down 7-1 in the top of the ninth inning and the Mets clawed their way back to win 8-7 by scoring seven, yes seven, runs in the ninth inning. In the past this team would have been dead in the water and you could shut off your radio or tv and just chalk it up as a loss and the Mets having a bad game after a rough series with the Braves. Nope. They came back. Things broke their way and they came back. 

I know you guys are going to call me crazy but this feels more special than a no-hitter thrown by five pitchers. Hear me out. For the hitters to be able to pull this off against major league pitchers in one inning having only three outs vs a team having a chance of breaking up a no hitter with 27 outs is way more impactful at least to me. Let’s see how the Mets continue playing this series in Philly and if they can keep up this miraculous pace of winning. Also did you guys see Marté hit that home run after arguing the previous strike by the umpire? That was something that would usually go against the Mets.
