Things are very quiet in Flushing, and the newspapers are all about the Jets as they should be (sigh).
This John Smoltz to the Mets rumor is going around, and let me weigh in with another one-of-mysure-to-be-unpopular opinions.
I don't want Smoltz on the team. He's a Brave.
I'd like to win, but I don't want to win with John Smoltz on the mound for Game 7. Sure, I'll take it if I get it, but it's not the way I want to win. I can't imagine myself waving at John Smoltz as he rides down the Canyon of Heroes. Same way I don't want Jeter on the Mets in 2013. What would the point be?
I'm still itchy to move the site to Wordpress so that it will work better and look prettier. I might do that next weekend. I have a lot of travel later in the month and I'm hesitant to be on the road (and busy) using a new system. This one is increasinly buggy but I know how to fix it.
I have an interesting meeting this week that might motivate me to just jump in the pool and go. I'm looking forward to that one, and that's all I can give you for now, but I bet you'll be jazzed.

Here's the weekly look at the most popular and some you may have missed.
The mainstream media ignored it, but it was really strange to have Rod Gilbert present Jason Bay with a Rangers jersey right near the top of the press conference. I think they were really trying to convince the NHL to have the Winter Classic at Citi.
I liked this Sports Illustrated article because of the George Foster stuff, but it got people bananas upset.
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.

A collection of anecdotes related to Mets tickets, and my suggestion the Mets return 7 game packs and make Promenade Left the place to be. Click the pic.
