A Week In Joyville

A Week In Joyville

How confident are we in the 2022 Mets? Confident enough to spotlight the 1962 Mets, with National League Town’s first-ever guest, Dave Bagdade, author of A Year in Mudville, the definitive opus on the Original Mets, that eternally lovable collection of characters nobody will mistake for the current incarnation (though today’s Mets are pretty lovable, too). Elsewhere, we toast the latest comeback of a lifetime; Jeff has fun at the Nationals’ expense; and Greg directs our historical attention toward the understated steadiness of the best UtilityMet of the 1980s.
