Mets Daddy is a blog to discuss my personal experiences as a Mets fan. Some of my happiest memories with my father was playing catch, going to Mets games, and/or talking about baseball. In 2013, I became a father, and I hope to share these same experiences with my son.   My belief is that baseball is America’s Pastime and it has served an important role cultivating relationships between fathers and sons. More than anything this is what makes baseball great and enduring.

This blog will discuss a variety of Mets related topics from game analysis, roster transactions, and Citi Field. However, my overall focus and hope for this blog is to always come at it from the perspective of a father and son. Lets Go Mets!

    Your blog looks like something a kindergartener would make.

    1. metsdaddy says:

      You must work at one of the most elite kindergartens the world has ever known.

        Could you be any more egotistical? You write a crappy blog for a living, dude.

        1. metsdaddy says:

          Since I’m very self deprecating, I could stand to be a little bit more egotistical.

          Also, for what it’s worth, this isn’t my day job. My day job is actually going to different blogs and telling them why they’re awful. As you well know, it’s quite lucrative.

        You should proofread your work for God sake. Your post onWC ties is awful

        1. metsdaddy says:

          Strange. This wasn’t a Wild Card post. Also, your comment is rife with grammatical errors.

            Ahhh sensitive, sensitive Mets Daddy.

    2. Brendan Carr says:

      This is the best blog ever MetsDaddy is very humorous informative and up front on his views of the team

      1. metsdaddy says:

        Thank you. I really appreciate the kind words.

    This blog is worse than Matt Cerrone’s. Could you be anymore subjective and biased with regards to your views of certain players? It’s like you pick favorites without even acknowledging their respective performances.

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Like anyone else, I bring a certain level of subjectivity in my writing. To that end, I have been more than upfront about it when it comes to Duda, Harvey, Granderson, Murphy, and Wright. Still, I do not allow my subjectivity to distort the facts. I always use statistical information to buttress my arguments. If you have an example where I am wrong that you would like to share, go ahead and do it.

    Hi, I’m guessing there are some trademark issues, but any chance you’ve ever printed a Mets Daddy t-shirt and could share the design? I know the blog header is fairly low-res so it would need to be rezzed up carefully or reimaged from the original graphics, and due to the trademarks, you probably couldn’t sell it, but all that said, it would be the ULTIMATE FATHER’S DAY GIFT.

    1. metsdaddy says:

      First time anyone has asked that.

      With the logo as is, I couldn’t sell it, but you have given me something to think about b

    I’m sorry, but is this deGrominator, Don L, Joshua F, metsdaddy, Jamie P, or Adam 7?

  8. I think this is an excellent reason / mission statement for blog. The baseball bond and relationship that exists between fathers and sons and fathers and daughters is a strong one, and you are to be complemented for wanting to expose your son to it.

      Thank you
