Let's Get Annual

The Maple Street Press Mets Annual 2011 is party enough by itself, but now it comes with its very own shindig. Swing by the Pine Restaurant at the Holiday Inn LaGuardia, on 114th Street across the Grand Central from Citi Field (just around the corner from the 111th St. stop on the 7), Tuesday night, starting at six. Matt Silverman, co-editor of this truly indispensable publication, is hosting a one-of-a-kind Met Together which will include food and drink as well and fun and games…most compellingly, the Mets game from Philadelphia. Meet Matt, meet me, meet other editors of and contributors to Mets Annual, of which you can purchase copies at a special Amazin’ Tuesday rate of five bucks.

That’s a bargain, though it’s well worth the $12.99 newsstand price when you see it on sale throughout the Metropolitan Area. Now in its fourth year, Mets Annual puts the Mets under a friendly yet discerning microscope and tells you everything you might want to know along with some things you hadn’t thought of but will be glad somebody did. There are profiles; there’s analysis, there’s the big club; there’s the opponents; there’s the minors; there’s blue and orange history by the bucketful and there’s a brigade of Mets-lovin’ authors who won’t let you down. I’m proud to be one of them.

So come on down and get your copy at the Pine and stick around to root on Chris Young as he stares down that puny Cole Hamels. All details here.

    Am I the only one who thinks Ike Davis is Dave Magadan’s doppelganger?

  • Right down to those wheels of cement.

    All these guys with the beards are starting to look alike.

    Magadan had little power, was only an adequate defender and except for one season was not a run producer. Magadan was a more likeable yet equally overrated Greg Jeffries. Ike, who would have won the Gold Glove if the awarded was truly based only on defense (look under Palmeiro, Rafael), is Jon Milner aspiring to be John Olerud.

    Had a great time watching the Mets take the series from the fish! Its about time we finally beat them down here!

    Alot of Met fans at the game made it fun.
