He may have been joking but after doing a little digging it turns out he was right...and here's the proof.

Sandy Alderson Puts Mets Fans In Their Place At Season Ticket Holder Event

Move Over Moneyball, Mets GM Invents Dinnerball

The Mets, the masters of looking like they're ready to do SOMETHING and never really doing anything, have topped themselves recently. Perhaps they fell into this by design or maybe it was just dumb luck. In any case it has evolved into a plan that will go into high gear next off-season.

The internet is buzzing over the fact that recently Sandy Alderson had a dinner with super-agent Scott Boras and one of his high profile clients, OFer Michael Bourn.

Now we serious Mets fans know that there is no way in H-E double hockey sticks that the Mets are going to shell out big big bucks for a free agent outfielder. They'll have one of their classic excuses at the ready.  Here are just some of them.

Alex Rodriguez Is...El Cacique!

For this to make sense check out this story from the Miami New Times once again linking our favorite Pre-Columbian chief to (surprise, surprise) steroids. The story of "El Cacique" is mostly on page 4.

Mets Fans Resort To Dog Costumes As An Alternative To Overpriced Tickets

Mets fans, want a good deal on Mets tickets? It's easier than you think, just be a dog. The Mets recently announced that the April 20th game against the Nationals will be a "Bark In The Park" date. Dogs can enter Citi Field for the bargain basement price of just $10. Humans will cost slightly more at $35. The price gap between man and his best friend has led some more intrepid fans to try a new way to see their favorite team.

Dressed as dogs, fans have begun showing up at the Citi Field ticket windows demanding $10 tickets for themselves.  Mets ticket agents were initially hesitant to hand over ticket to what were obviously humans in dog costumes but eventually they gave in.

The Apple Presents: A Mets Fan Survey For Smartasses

Nowadays you can't surf the internet for more than 10 minutes without being surveyed and polled.  You'd think that with the Presidential election being over that it would stop but it just moves on to some other subject. Heck, the Mets even used an online poll to decide if they should move Banner Day. With that in mind we've put together our own Mets-related poll. 

Please answer the following questions honestly and remember that your answers will help shape...well nothing really, just like every other internet poll.

Sandy Alderson Gets In On The #TEOing Craze

Nick Evans Never Existed: Mets Say They Were Victims Of A Cruel Hoax

By now you've most likely read at least one article about the ongoing Manti Te'o saga. Hearing about this prompted me to do some digging into the Mets archives and what I've uncovered is shocking but not necessarily surprising.  Apparently, the Mets were either the perpetrators or victims of a similar hoax as recently as the 2011 season.

A check of the Mets record books shows that from 2008 - 2011 the team employed a player named Nick Evans. A check of Baseball Reference shows that this "Nick Evans" even compiled some statistics over that time period. There's just one problem. No one in or around the Mets organization has ever seen this person.

Mets Cave To Fan Pressure And Reschedule Banner Day...Sort Of

One year after a blogger campaign led to the return of Banner Day at Citi Field in 2012, the Mets have again listened to cries from the blogosphere regarding the scheduling of the beloved tradition.

Originally scheduled as a noon event on Sunday, May 26th, before a 1 PM game vs. the Atlanta Braves, the event's timing was thrown off when the game was chosen as the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game of the week. This meant the parade of banners around the warning track would happen sometime before the 8:05 game.

Mets COO Jeff Wilpon: We Have Money To Spend On Free Agents...We Just Don't Remember Where We Put It

Mets fans have been frustrated lately by what they feel is hot stove complacency despite reports saying the team has money to spend.  If the team really does have money, then why haven't they made a move to fill one of their many holes? In an effort to clear up the confusion, we went right to the source, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon.

"The truth is we have money to spend.", Wilpon told The Apple. "The thing is, we currently don't know where we put it.  I was operating under the assumption that Sandy (Alderson) knew where it was, but he came to me looking for money for an outfielder last week and we realized we had a problem."

Mike Piazza Posts Crazy Hall Of Fame Freakout Video On YouTube...Well Not Really

Since failing to make the Major League Baseball Hall of Hipocracy Fame earlier today, Mets legend Mike Piazza has already had at least one fictional reaction attributed to him.

Personally, while I do not actually know what the real Mike Piazza is doing right now, I would not blame him for going all World of Warcraft Freak Out Kid on the whole MLB.
Mike Piazza  uses a TV remote to demonstrate what the BBWAA did to him.

The Apple Nominated For 3 Mazzy Awards

On Saturday, Mets bloggers and fans will be gathering at Donovan's Pub in Woodside, Queens for the first ever live Mazzy Awards. The Mazzys, invented by those scamps over at, started as a virtual awards show which existed entirely on their blog.  This year however, the event is going live because the only thing bloggers like more than patting themselves on the back is being able to drink while doing it.

The Apple has been nominated in three categories, Best Writer, Best Looking and Fan of the Year.

I don't expect to take home any hardware.
