None of the beat reporters have anything. If it were a player signing they'd have it. So it's something "internal" and nothing actually newsworthy.
The Mets signed a "multiyear" deal with WFAN at the end of 2008 so I doubt it's a contract extension for that.
Some radio stations have messed around with doing one-team sportsradio on their HD channels (Penguins and Cowboys) but you wouldn't announce that on December 29th.
Some have speculated it's about the Mets Hall of Fame, but outside of the blogosphere is that major news?
I think Mike hyped his radio show, bored Mets fan got all excited and now all are set up to kill Francesca for not delivering.
My guess: Omar or Jeff is calling in for some set-up call to promote some feel-good item. The team needs to get the ticketholders to blink before the 12/31 deadline....perhaps the Seaver related item that Mets VP Craig Marino told us about will be announced to entice fans to renew. Craig said Seaver would be honored in a "major way."
Or Mike Piazza day as part of some 10th anniversary of the 2000 World Series team (y'all missed that that one is coming already!).
While I've got you, I'll pull a Francesa of my own. You know that horrible injury riddled season the Mets just had? They wouldn't sell a t-shirt making light of it would they? Come back at 7am to see.
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.
