Good morning Mets fans! I hope everyone is having a great Thursday. I can’t speak for everyone, but the sights and sounds of spring have given me my second wind, and I can’t wait for the season to start. Here are a few thoughts I have been having… Recently, our former “untouchable” prospect Lastings Milledge had some very unkind words to say about his former club. Here is a sample: "I can’t go through anything [...]
Salutations fellow Mets fans! I trust you are all having a happy and healthy Thursday. For some reason, I feel like leaving my sensible self aside for a moment and just being a cocky Mets fan…one moment… “Yeah baby! We got Johan Santana! That’s 20 wins and 250 strikeouts EASY! Put it all together with the best left side of the infield in the game, Beltran, rejuvenated Delgado and a healthy Pedro and the [...]
I know I don’t normally blog on Saturdays, but felt compelled to today. I’m sure many of you have read Carlos Beltrans’ comments upon arrival at Mets camp today. For those of you that haven’t, here’s a refresher… "To Jimmy Rollins: We are the team to beat." When I first read those words I was stunned. Was I on the right team website? Did Carlos get possessed by a body snatcher? He continued… [...]
Finally, amid all of the turmoil with steroids, HGH, the Mitchell report and everything else, baseball is being played. I realize that it’s only spring training and full squad workouts do not begin for a few more days, but it’s still baseball. When I read yesterday that Johan Santana had already reported to Mets camp and was throwing I could not help but get excited. Not just because of baseball being played but because of [...]
It has been a pretty good week for New York sports. First the Giants knock off the Patriots and win the Super Bowl, then Mets fans off season dreams became a reality with the introduction of Johan Santana. Forgive my childlike enthusiasm, but off season press conferences are kind of like Christmas morning…except they don’t come every year. I love how media and fans alike get all worked up and the owners, GM and agents [...]
Well, happy almost end of the week to everybody! Once again, an uneventful week in the world of major league baseball. I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting pretty sick of hearing about who the front runner for Johan Santana is. I think SI.com has an article at least 3 times a week about it. I just want to tell the Twins to make up their minds already. They have to do something in [...]
Happy Friday everybody! I hope everyone has had a productive and exciting week! Forgive my excitement folks, being a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting makes me do it. I’m almost as jumpy as Robin Williams after 12 lattes, thinking about it. The fresh air, green grass, sound of bats cracking and leather popping, the taste of $6.00 Hot Dogs and knishes and sweltering heat all bring back the days of my youth. Not a [...]
In the interest of breaking up the monotony of the Johan Santana saga, I sat down and tried to think of some positive things about our 2008 Mets. That being said, I love a good commercial. As a matter of fact, most people only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. So here are just a couple of product pitch ideas some of our favorite Mets (and maybe Met) to make themselves some extra money [...]
It’s a Little League parents worst nightmare. Their child being hurt during a game that is… Torn between jumping the fence to coddle their precious child, or let them take their lumps and learn to pick themselves back up. Within an instant a wild pitch hitting them in the back, an outfield collision or even a line drive to the pitchers mound can pierce even the hardest heart or make nerves of steel turn to [...]
During my daily boredom induced web surfing, I came across yet another reason why being a Mets fan can sometimes be painful. As we all know, Michael Vick has just been sentenced to 23 months in prison. In “celebration” of that, Sports Illustrated (si.com) has put together a photo gallery of famous athletes who have gone to jail. Lo and behold, 2 of the top five are …you guessed it…METS!!! The first one listed is [...]
