Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures and "stuff" today. All really appreciated. It was a busy day as "Clark Kent" and man I'm sleepy so I'll catch up on stuff as soon as I can. Keep 'em coming.
Jon from Mets By The Numbers has solved the Tug McGraw jersey mystery, I think, I'll get to that later in the week. Jon I tried to send you an email and it bounced back, I'm holding off on the comment so as not to give away the solution yet. How Francesca of me. That's right, I'll have Tug McGraw jersey news later in the week. Here's the mink-man.
Tomorrow: at 6am I have a post suggesting the Mets re-introduce 7 game packs. I think you'll like it, I added a neat idea to it that I think could make Citi start to feel more like home, and since people will be in Mets mode tomorrow hopefully someone in Flushing can figure it out by 11. Yeah I know I'm insane but I;'m betting this idea goes over big.
Also tomorrow - Piazza pics, a look back at when Howie ripped the black uniforms on air, Dan's Hall of Fame ballot, more from the 78 yearbook and I'm sure there will be a lot to say about the Bay press conference. Keep the mike away from Omar. Jeff you're actually better at this, you field the questions.
I'm exhausted. This getting up before sunrise thing stinks. 'Night Mets fans, one more alternate cap coming in about an hour.
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.
