I like Amazin' Avenue, They do a great job, and are kind enough to link here. They busted my balls when I suggested Jose Reyes won't be ready Opening Day (we'll see...and I actually hope you guys are right and I'm exposed as a pessimistic dope) but here's a good challenge via Amazin' Avenue.
Dan, my cohort in blogging and a big Cyclones fan is away this week, and I was planning on redesigning the blog this weekend...but it is a three day weekend, this seems like a fun challenge. I'm tempted to accept.
20, huh? Anyone want to help with some guest posts?
Why should the Cyclones be the repository of Mets history in the first place? While the Cyclones are a Mets affiliate, they are a “Brooklyn” baseball team. In a way, the Cyclones have a responsibility to evoke the entire history of “Brooklyn Baseball”, much more so than shilling for the Mets. And, lets be honest, the Brooklyn script has essentially become the boroughs signature, which basically equates to a half century of flipping the Dodgers the “bird” for leaving.
Just the thoughts of a guy who was born up in Washington Heights, with a childhood spread across the Lower East Side, the West Side ( H&H Bagels baby), Astoria, and as a student at Brooklyn Tech.
I actually pay little attention to the Cyclones and haven't had a chance to check out the new logo to even get upset about it (assuming it would upset me). I just posted it because I liked the chopbusting from Amazin Avenue.
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.
