The Real Dirty Mets

Just Another Mets Blog

Headed to Bean Town…

Wish the team, and myself luck!

wish us luckI’m headed up to Boston this morning, I’ll be attending my second overall game at historic Fenway Park, but first with the Mets in town.

I will also be bringing my fiance’s 14 year old godson who is a Red Sox fan to his first game at Fenway as well, so i’m very excited for him to experience this.

My only other time at Fenway was a Blue Jays game in 2007, where I was very drunk, very quickly and had no interest in the outcome of the game, so it couldn’t have been a better experience… this time though, I’ll be wearing Mets gear, but behaving myself, that’s for sure.

With all that said, lets hope the Mets get on a winning track, and we need to root for those Yanks as well.  As much as it pains me, but in the grand scheme of things, their record doesn’t impact us at all unless its in our egos, but the Phillies record matters.

I will return late Saturday afternoon and at that time, we should be able to begin the move to, giving out email addresses and settin up shop in our new digs.  I’m very excited and very happy we’ve found such a good “core” of potential writers, supporters, moderators, etc etc, and I feel this will be extremely successful.

Alright guys, I hope to come back to another win, and more excitement over our venture, at least one of those things is a guarantee, the other…sits on the wide shoulders of Johan Santana.

See everyone tomorrow, with photos of the game, hold down the fort, and most importantly ..

lets go mets

  2. Have fun. Never been to Fenway Park myself.

    I’m thinking advantage Mets with Johan on the mound so hopefully you’ll see a win.

    Let’s Go Mets!

    • to be 100% honest, every game is winnable..johan vs matsuzaka – adv mets,
      beckett vs pelf – toss up the way beckett has pitched thus far
      wakefield vs redding – toss up with how wakefield is capable of pitching and how he usually does

      • Yes, and with our anemic offense lately, it’s all going to come down to pitching. If we can basically keep them off the board, we’ll have a shot to win the series, or even sweep!

  3. Going up there tomorrow for the Saturday night game. Lookign forward to it.

    This will be my 2nd visit to Fenway Park, but hopefully my first game. Drove up there in the morning a few years ago from Westchester County to catch a game two years ago against Texas. It was a beautiful day. Nice drive up there. Weekday. Not a holiday weekend, so no traffic. Everyone was at work except for me and my woman. We got up to Boston. Walked around town. Had a few hours to kill. Finally stepped foot inside of Fenway. Got some beers and went to our seats. Enter clouds. Enter thunder. Enter lightning. Exit stage left. Game gets rained out before it ever starts. Hopefully that doesn’t happen tomorrow.

    • TA18 I have no idea why your post go straight to spam. I have added you as a user. Let me know if the problem continues.

  5. Yes sir. I’m at TA ’18. Now Reyes is injured as well. Disaster.

    It’s clearly time to bring up F-Mart. Jeremy Reed and Co. are not going to get it done in the outfield.

  6. TRS,
    Just commented and didn’t post right away. This stinks. 😦

  7. Yeah Im optimistic but it doesnt look good at this point. Boston at home is close to unbeatable this year and Johan, granted a small samlpe size 3 starts i believe, is pretty bad. This may sound foolish but there are 2 scenarios I can live with this series. Obviously first we take 2 of 3 or sweep. The second is we lose 2 or get swept and the RedSox outscore us heavily. The reason why I say this is I feel we need to make a move sooner than later. A series of us losing by 1 run, 2 runs, close games will not hit the panic button in Omar. Philly’s offense is absolutely nuts at this point and we need a bat. Sooner the better! Lets Go Mets!

  9. Anyone going to Fenway for tomorrow night’s game?

    • TA18, you so far are the ONLY poster that has been caught by the spam filter. If you have another email address do you mind reregistering? Hopefully that will solve the problem.

  10. What stinks is as a team, I should say as a good team you only get so many 7-8 game win streaks a year. The hope and goal is too play .500 ball or slightly above in between a couple of nice streaks. Before you know it your 15-20 games above .500. I hope after our first nice streak we dont negate it the very next week.

  11. Is anyone else here registered under a Yahoo e-mail? Wonder if that’s what is causing me to go to Spam. Unless Matt sent his henchmen to snatch me up like in Old School to become one of the “Trusted 50”.

    • It’s possible, right now I have to approve everyone of your messages. LOL. I know I am using hotmail and it works. I thought adding you as a contributor would work but….

  12. Test.

    • Still did not work. I have no idea.

      Comment by trs86 | May 22, 2009 | Reply

      • TRS, anywhere else I can contact you to resolve? I don’t want this to be a discussion between the two of us on here. Next thing you know, Dirty will close the comments section and leave it open for only 50 “Trusted” readers.

        I did a little research on the built-in spam filter. Looks like there is a way to flag me as a false positive. It’ll take a few days for the system to update, but I’ll make your life easier and not post today.

          • We want F-Mart!

            • Ok last time, go over to the new site and try it there.

  13. I was thinking thta it would be great to get some video of the games. It’d be cool if we could get Met fans that go to the games, send in some videos. It’d add a different dimension of the fan experience. I might go to Wednesdays game, so I’ll bring along my camera. Although, don’t know how good the picture will be from LF Prom Res. Though it should be good from the Queens Bridge or CF.
