ESPN’s Rob Neyer and SNY’s Ted Berg started a small firestorm when they suggested that baseball discontinues the singing of “God Bless America” at ballparks in an attempt to shorten the game.

Yesterday, the Mets set aside all the drama of their not-so-hot-stove season for a good cause at their Annual Mets Holiday Party. Jeff Francoeur played the part of St. Nick and he and his fellow Mets elves brought some much needed joy and smiles to school children from all five boros of the city.
