Meet The Mets Fan: ESPN Radio’s Matt Markus
The Mets Fan
My name is Matt Markus and I am a sports radio talk show host in the Lehigh Valley, PA. Phillies country.
How You Became a Mets Fan
Growing up in the 80s my dad was/is a Mets fan and I latched on really easily.
Favorite Mets Player
HoJo was my favorite player growing up, but I’d have to go with David Wright. I loved watching him grow as a player and the leadership he has shown. His struggles have only endeared himself to us fans ever more.
Favorite Moment in Mets History
The Mets went to the Series while I was in college. Being at Seton Hall, I was so close to the action. Although in defeat that run is up there for me, as well as 2015. The Johan Santana no-no has to be tops though right?
Message to Mets Fans
I still believe Mickey Callaway can be the guy to take this team to new heights. There have been more than enough growing pains but at the end of the day the guys need to produce. The hitters need to hit, the fielders need to field, and the closer needs to close. If that starts to happen. this team can be fine. The hole is too big for this year, but if they hold on to their Aces and jettison some of the dead weight while calling up some young guys, it can be fun again.
