Mets News and Notes: Mets in Snowy Situation, Marcum to start Sunday, Gardenhire on Harvey, Fire at Citi Field, Shawn Teufel goes to AA


Mets News and Notes:

After Sunday’s postponement, the Mets have relocated from Minneapolis to Denver, but the forecast is not exactly better at this stop.

Tonight’s forecast, via weather.com: “Periods of snow. Low near 30F. NNE winds at 20 to 30 mph, diminishing to 10 to 15 mph. 2 to 4 inches of snow expected.”

Weather-permitting, Dillon Gee opposes right-hander Juan Nicasio in the series opener.

If the four-game series materializes uninterrupted, Aaron Laffey will proceed with Tuesday’s start, followed by Jeremy Hefner on Wednesday and Jonathon Niese on Thursday.

Matt Harvey is lined up to face Stephen Strasburg in Friday’s opener against the Washington Nationals at Citi Field.

Shaun Marcum may be activated from the disabled list to start Sunday instead of Laffey, assuming Marcum gets through a tune-up on Tuesday.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire told Mike Puma in the Post that Matt Harvey reminded him of Zack Greinke.

“We were trying to figure out guys he reminds you of,” Gardenhire told Puma. “It would kind of be hard to place him because he is so poised. But his stuff is comparable to Greinke because he can add and subtract with his fastball and his command of the strike zone and changeup and everything are all solid. Well above-average pitches, so he’s kind of like Greinke. ... I would be excited about him. That’s a nice looking young man and a good looking pitcher.”

Mets will host 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field

Fox Sports Reports: Major League Baseball will announce Wednesday that the New York Mets will host the 2013 All-Star game at Citi Field.

MLB did not reveal the purpose of the news conference at City Hall with baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, Mets owner Fred Wilpon and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Baseball decided at least four years ago that the Mets would host the game at the ballpark, which opened in 2009, but held off an announcement until it reaching agreements with the city.

The Mets last hosted the All-Stars in 1964, the year Shea Stadium opened. The game was last in New York in 2008, the final season of old Yankee Stadium.

Financial records show that Citi Field revenues have dropped more than 30 percent


Financial records show that Citi Field revenues have dropped more than 30 percent since the New York Mets ballpark opened in 2009. Premium ticket sales are down almost 50 percent.

The financial documents obtained by Newsday show that concession revenue alone dropped 28 percent since 2009, to $10.9 million in 2011. Newsday reports that parking was down 37 percent, to $7 million.


Ticket sales for the 10,635 premium seats declined from $99.3 million in 2009 to $50.6 million through 2011. The seats are about 25 percent of the stadium.

The documents highlight some of team’s financial struggles following the fraud committed by Bernard Madoff. The owners of the Mets are being sued by a bankruptcy trustee trying to recoup some of the $50 billion in Madoff fraud money.

My Tour of Citi Field (Photos)


I Took a Tour of Citi Field Today.. I must say the building looks like it's starting to fall apart, especially in the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. The Marble Floors looked cracked and some even were filled in..  The weather has taken a toll in the rotunda.

Enough of the negativity,  as far as the rest of the tour it was pretty cool. They take you everywhere average fans don't see.. Like the Clubhouse, which I was not able to take pictures (sorry).. The Mets rep told me the Mets Players respect their privacy of their lockers.. The only problem I had with that is none of the lockers were occupied except Mr. Wright's Locker which had a NY Giants Helmet Hanging from it (Good Mets PR).

The rest of the tour was pretty much captured on film below..  I got to take a look at the Caesars' Club, Delta Club, Pressbox, Citi Field Operations Booth,  On Field, In Dugout and last but not least, The Mets Hall of Fame which was a real treat since I never was there since it's opening..

If you would like to reserve you own tour Click Here

Take a look at my pictures and enjoy the slide show!

Pieces of Citi Field's Walls are on Auction


Pieces of Citi Field history (all three years of it) are on sale to the highest bidder.

In a decidedly odd online auction, the cash-strapped Mets are hawking seven separate chunks of the padded left-field wall, that’s been guarded by such “old-time” Amazin’s legends as Daniel Murphy and Jason Bay.

Flushing faithful with a few thousand bucks in their pockets can get their hands on markers celebrating their favorite corporate sponsors and championship teams.

Mets VP Jay Horwitz insisted the sale isn’t a cash grab, just a routine auction prompted by the team’s left-field redesign.
