There has been a lot of talk about heroes around here lately… and I think it is time I told a story about a hero of my own. Ever come across somebody in your life that you just knew was impossible to dislike? Their inner core, nay, their soul was glowing with such warmth that you knew they could put a smile on your face no matter how bad your day was? Yeah…that was Adam. […]
I spent last week on Lanai, a beautiful and remote Hawaiian Island. Sports, for the most part, was far from my mind. To say that is a rarity for me, is a major understatement. Still weeks from Opening Day, I considered it an opportunity to relax before the frenzy of another baseball season began. Wearing my Ike Davis shirt the last morning, I was approached by an individual asking if I was an Ike Davis’ […]
Professional sports franchises have been trying to reward fans for coming to their game for almost 70 years. The game, whether it’s baseball, basketball, football or hockey is always the number one attraction for any consumer to walk through the gates. In 1941, Bill Veeck started to bring a different point of view. What if the game wasn’t the only entertainment? In 1941, Veeck was a part of a group that purchased the Milwaukee Brewers […]
In 2012, we saw Gavin Cecchini and Kevin Plawecki hog the spotlight as the first round picks and the most promising new members of the Mets minor league system. Behind them followed many new and talented players that came into the fold of the orange and blue. I was so excited as a fan last year, that I actually added as many players as I could to my personal twitter to see who would sign. […]
The Daily News summarized what was a series of Mets organizational moves and promotions that took place during the offseason. Most of these moves flew under the radar, but are certainly worth noting. Many of these moves were made without much fanfare or official announcement, but they are in fact completed. Two and a half years in, and Sandy Alderson continues to structure his organization which is still sort of a hybrid of new people […]
There are few television analysts as knowledgeable and entertaining as Keith Hernandez, who, if you asked him the time would tell you how to build a watch. Not only does he know baseball, but on Saturday showed he could work on Animal Planet, The Weather Channel and do QVC, which ironically has its corporate headquarters across the street from Tradition Field. When the Mets are in Washington, always expect a history lesson. After the starting […]
I heard through the grapevine that the lot of you are looking to Xtreem and I for fantasy advice. Yes, like thirsty wanderers in the desert of fantasy baseball who have found the well of knowledge, rest assured that the knowledge water… yeah, this analogy is not going anywhere. So I was tasked with putting together the top 15 outfielders for the 2013 Fantasy Season to continue with our series – after Xtreem threw out […]
Last week, I did a write-up defending Gavin Cecchini from the horde of skeptics that have continually looked down on him. This week I am continuing on that trend, but I don’t think I need much convincing when it comes to the next player, Brandon Nimmo. In June of 2011, the Mets took Brandon Nimmo 13th overall in the Rule IV First Player’s draft out of Cheyenne, Wyoming. We all know his story, coming from […]
