Matthew Silverman, author of four books on the Mets, has launched his first blog. You can check it out here or at Metsilverman.com.
Matthew’s books include:
– 100 Things Mets Fans Need to Know and Do Before They Die
– Mets by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Amazin' Mets by Uniform Number
– Meet the Mets 2008: An Annual Guide to New York Mets Baseball
– Everything You Need to Know to Be a Real Fan!
They are all available on Amazon.
There are many reasons to like Matthew’s work. Firstly, there’s this item in his FAQ:
Why do you bash Citi Field so often?
Because it’s new. I like old stuff. The old uniforms, the old hats, the old stadium, the old peanut vendors. One thing I don’t like is old players. The game is about youth and the only people my age the Mets should have under contract are coaches, front office peeps, program sellers, beer guys, and ushers.
Secondly, in the book “100 Things Mets Fans
Should Know and Do Before They Die,” Loge13.com is listed as both top 10 Mets Web sites and credited in helping find out the nitty gritty on the
Beatles in 1965. Thanks!
And Matthew has a nice link to the Doomsday clock. So check out his site and buy his books. And good luck Matthew!
