Moved

After a long break from blogging of almost a year, I have decided to start again but I have started a new blog over at wordpress. I loved using MLBlogs but I wanted a change to see what something was like. My new blog can be found either at alwaysmets.wordpress.com or alwaysmets.tk 

Either way spring Training is around the corner (can’t wait until Tuesday).
Lets GO Mets GO

On the List but Not Very Happy

Well the latest leaders list finally came out today. I am ranked at 48 as I have moved down. My career rankings are 53, 25, 48 so I have moved down. Come on people. Visit this blog. If there is something that you want me to add then let me know. Let other people know about this blog.

Why are my ranking of such bad players. Kaz Matsui and then Aaron Heilman. Therefor I have no dedication post but

Today’s Question: 7 Points

In the Mets first ever trade, they traded cash and a player to be named later for Frank Thomas and another player to be named later. Who were the players that were later named?

♠ If you can only get 1 player then you will get half the points. If someone only says 1 player then you can say the other for half the points.

♣ First one to post a comment with the correct answer wins. Please leave a link to your blog so I can post your link as a winner.

State of the Blog

Every once in a while i will have one of these State of the Blog where I will say what is going on with the blog and what is up ahead.

  • I have stopped making the Daily Scouting Reports partly because I was running out of ideas to write about and I was not having much time to make them.
  • The amount of people visiting the blog has gone down and I don’t think i will make the next latest leaders now. Come on people. Start visiting more for my opinion and news about the Mets and the MLB. Also tell people about this blog.
  • I will also be adding a daily trivia question called the Rubber Duck Trivia. It comes from the Aflac Trivia question during Mets games on SNY. I also would like to give credit to the #1 Constant Baseball for inspiring me to do this. It will be a little different though. The questions will be more about the Mets. Below is the first Trivia Question:
(update 7:41 PM) 
I completely forgot to thank Julia’s Rants for being the first one to ispire me to do this. Thanks a lot Julia you have a very good blog going as you are always in the top 5 of latest leaders.

Rubber Duck Trivia

What Mets player wore the number 31 up until Mike Piazza arrived? What number did that player switch to?

♠ This is a 2 part question so if you get only 1 part then you get half credit.

♣ First one to post a comment with the correct answer wins. Please leave a link to your blog so I can post your link as a winner.

Happy Birthday MLBlogs

Today marks the 4th anniversary of MLBlogs so I would like to wish MLBlogs a Happy Birthday. I have only been her for a year with taking a huge break in the middle but MLBlogs has been here for a long time.

#25

Last night the new latest leaders came out. I got #25! Thank you for all of my visitors and keep coming back in my road to the top 10. 


Last time the latest leaders came out, I wasn’t on it and I was furious. Read this post for the story on it. Mark ended up extending the list to 53 for me but this time I am on it. 

#25


Most people dedicate there ranking but I will un-dedicate to one of the worst mets ever. 


Supposed to be good but never was. 

Fans hated him. 

He stole Reyes’ position.

Always led off the year with a home run.
