Drew gets to be #31 in our fan survey. Maybe we should retire his number.
1. When did you start following the Mets?
2. What is your favorite Mets memory?
The day they acquired Hernandez, for the first time in my met fan life, there was true hope
3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?
June 15, 1977 Trading Seaver and to a lesser degree Kingman, being 9 at the time, you have no idea about off the field issues, or any of the behind the scenes BS, it was incomprehensible to me why they were gone, and it seemed like the organization gave up that day.
4. If you could change one off-field thing about the franchise what would it be?
They should embrace the past better, and not just 69 and 86. I had alot of great memories even when they stunk. How about an old timers game. I would love to see guys like Steve Henderson, Joel Youngblood, even Willie Montanez!!!
5. If you owned the team starting tomorrow, what is the first thing you would change?
If I was Jeff Wilpon, I would take a less visible role and hire a baseball "czar" so to speak and clean up the mess. Perceived or otherwise, there is a stench around this organzation that needs to be cleaned up. Open the windows, let it all out. I would hire the baseball equivalent of Bill Parcells. I am also a Miami Dolphin fan, after the horrible 1-15, they cleaned house and bought themselves instant credibility with a proven winner who had an established track record of turning around downtrodden franchises. Who is that guy here?? John Schulerholz, Pat Gillick, I'm not even sure at this point but you get the point.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.
