First of all, it was very COLD!!! 44 degrees at gametime which is better suited for Joe Namath and the late "Big Cat" Ernie Ladd than for Matt Harvey and Yonder Alonzo (BTW, that's a great name). Pol Pot Bloomberg's soda law was in full effect because the Big Gulp type cups were NOT to be around (although the law was struck down by a judge). It's a good thing that I live in New Jersey where my governor Chris Christie (a Mets fan) would take Bloomy's legs and make what happen to that Louisville hoops player look like the sniffles!!!! Matt Harvey (his birth certificate says the Nutmeg State and NOT the Bahamas, so he knows about pitching in the cold) was great 7 innings and 10 K's. Buck, Duda, and Davis all hit home runs. It was so cold (More cold than the 2007 home opener at Shea) that I took refuge into the Promenade Restaurant and chatted it up with Mets fans and a few Padres rooters, a couple of SD transplants living in the Apple. I gave them a fact that the Padres were close to moving to Washington, DC in 1974 before Ray Kroc (the founder of McDonalds) bought the team and kept it in San Diego! Plus I gave a few dudes wearing the garbage Yankees hat some choice words (NO profanity) but with the Miz's WWE catch phrase "REALLY?". I should've thrown in a couple of "GO RED SOX" as well and I will be back to Citi when the supposed global warming kicks in and the fans aren't dressed up like they're watching the bobsled trials at Lake Placid!

Matt Harvey pitches seven shutout innings. He strikes out ten, gives up only one hit and faces only one batter over the minimum. WHY DID HE NOT FINISH THE GAME???!!! Relievers in the last two innings allowed four runs. Great game, but a pitching gem ruined by too much bullpen dependence.

SO COLD. First game I ever attended where it snowed. Target Field personnel gave out free hot cocoa and pins that said "I Survived Sprinter At Target Field" (sprinter=spring+winter). Was mostly just glad for the chance to see the Mets since they're rarely in Minnesota. Surprisingly strong offense with John Buck (during his inexplicable surge early in the year) hitting a grand slam. Niese wasn't his best, but hardly needed to be.

Incredible pitching performance by Matt Harvey. In his third start of the year, he took the mound in 35-degree weather with near-perfect command. After the first batter, Aaron Hicks, struck out looking, I had a feeling we might witness a perfect game. His fastball was on fire this afternoon, reminding me of what the great Doc must have been like in 1985. The perfect game bid ended with a walk to Ryan Doumit in the bottom of the second.

Marlon Byrd hit his first home run as a Met to open the scoring. The Mets strung together a bunch of hits and ended up with a 4-0 lead, a perfect score for a no-hitter.

However, it was not meant to be (on this day). With two outs in the seventh, Matt gave up the first base hit by the Twins, a home run off the foul pole by Justin Morneau.

I didn't think that in 35-degree weather, Matt would pitch better than he did on opening day, but I can't say he surprised me.

His line in this one: 8 innings pitched, 2 hits, 1 earned run, 2 walks, 6 strikeouts.

I traveled to cold Minn to attend this game. Yes, it was freezing, but watching Matt Harvey pitch was worth it. It was my first visit to this new stadium. As I entered the stadium, I explained to the Twins greeters to watch our (Mets) pitcher. Doesn't matter the weather, Harvey is already becoming a star.

The Mets wore their 1993 home throwback uniforms to commemorate the anniversary of the Rockies' first game, which had been played at Shea.

In these uniforms, the Mets just had to lose.

I thought that the greatest Mets game I had ever been to was the second to last game of the 2008 season at Shea when Johan pitched one of the greatest games of his career. This game has maybe taken over the top spot.

One of the best pitched games in Mets history, if not THE best. The no hitter was stupendous but Johan walked a lot of guys. The White Sox couldn't touch Matt Harvey that night. Statistically speaking, it was very similar to Seaver's "Imperfect Game". Except the only hit never got out of the infield.

HOW SWEEP IT IS! Dillon Gee puts in an Amazin' performance by striking out 12 Bronx Bummers as the Mets take all 4 games in the Subway Series much to the dismay of those loudmouth Yankee fans and then some! The next day I showed up at work waving a broom and sticking it to those Yankee fans (real and especially the phony ghetto bandwagon fans who were too busy smoking weed and NOT watching the game). Btw, the Yankee fans acted like a 5-year-old who didn't get their way at the supermarket and didn't like the fact that the METS SWEPT THE STANKEES IN 4 STRAIGHT GAMES.

This was a make-up game from the bitter cold and snow series back in April. The game-time temp was 93 degrees!

I was at this game with my best friend. Matt Harvey started and he looked sharp. The first base runner of the game for the Nats didn't come until I think the 6th inning. I thought for a while there we might see a perfect game that night.

With that being said Collins pulls Harvey out after the 7th leading 4-1. The Nats get a base clearing triple in the 8th and tack on two more in the 9th. Nats win 6-4 and ruin Harvey's performance.

Instead of being upset I was just numb to it by now. If you follow this team long enough you know what's coming!

Spent the 4th of July at Citi with my pal Kathy and her son Adam. Great giveaway with the Mets All-Star Garden Gnome and the longest game innings wise I've ever spent at a Mets game (15 innings) on a hot and sunny afternoon after a rainy May and June. But I could only drink water (no Pepsi) because I had just enough money to have one hot dog because of budget problems (i.e. my landlord blindsided me by raising my rent). If life were fair, I would be stinking rich with money and be watching the Mets from the 200 empire suites instead of sitting in the upper deck!

I was at this game with my brother. The announced attendance was 27,000+ but it sounded way louder than that. Almost nobody left before the end of the game because everyone wanted to see Harvey pitch a CG shutout. The liner off his knee was scary for a few moments. I think it's great for the young guys, like Harvey, Wheeler, Flores, Lagares, et al to see what winning in New York can be like.

I was there - sitting in sector 520. My second visit to the US, my first MLB game, and the Mets won! I do not only remember Marlon Byrd's home run, but mainly a spectacular catch by Eric Young jr in the left field. It was one of Zack Wheeler's first appearances as a starter.

And the home run-apple-shaped piggy bank that we were given still stands on my desk and is regularly filled with coins.

With the Mets winning 1-0, I witnessed 3 WINS on the road without a loss. Dice K was excellent and the relief core was just as good. Prior to the game, I obtained Vic Black's autograph.

It was not a successful season, but the Mets presented a wonderful tribute to Mike Piazza. The induction ceremony was filled with lots of great memories; former Mets greats and Mike giving a moving acceptance speech. It was nice to see a FULL house and a WIN!

It was my first trip out of New Jersey since I hurt my wrist in August (wound up having surgery) and it was a great but bittersweet way to end the 2013 season. They put Piazza in the Mets HOF (but #31 wasn't retired) and he gave a great and heartfelt speech!!!! The game wasn't much (NO home runs) but a nice 3-2 win over the Brew Crew using small ball. It was also the last Mets radiocast on WFAN (660/101.9) after 25 years because in 2014 the Bronx Evil Empire will take over (FYI, When the deal went down, I heard the Sports Pope was popping the bubbly with his buddy Craig "SELLOUT" Cartoon). Here's the amazing thing, it was a sellout crowd considering both teams were out of playoff contention on a nice 75 degree afternoon!
