First off, I would like to take the time out to wish all the readers of this blog a Happy Labor Day. If you’re one of the few that has to work today (cops, firefighters, etc) - thank you for your service. The Legendary French Renaissance writer , Michel de Montaigne once said: “So it is with minds. Unless you keep them busy with some definite subject that will bridle and control them, they throw themselves in disorder hither […]
I rarely post anything that isn’t Mets related, but I hope people had a chance to watch yesterday’s game between the Yankees and Red Sox in Fenway Park. Another chapter was written into one of the most storied rivalries in sports. In the second inning, Alex Rodriguez walked to the plate engulfed in a tidal wave of boos to face Ryan Dempster. Fans started chanting “You’re-a, chea-ter.” Dempster set the tone by throwing the first […]
At 1:47 PM I left my house to begin the journey to NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, NY, home of the Binghamton Mets. I arrived nearly two hours later with over two hours to spare until the gates opened. I used this time to tour the campus of SUNY Binghamton University, my mother’s alma mater, and to sit down for a late lunch/early dinner meal at the Lost Dog Cafe. If you’re in the area, check […]
Both suspended Mets players issued statements a short while ago: Cesar Puello: Today, I was notified by the Commissioner of Major League Baseball that I have been suspended for 50 games for violation of the Joint Drug Agreement. Out of respect for the Mets’ organization, my teammates, and my family, I have decided to accept this suspension and not exercise my rights under the Basic Agreement to appeal. I made certain mistakes during the 2012 […]
When one major league executive, was asked to choose between the current Mets’ roster or the current Yankees’ roster, he told the Daily News: “You have Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and this feeling that they are building toward something. Over on the other side, there’s no Jeter, Granderson, Teixeira, Youkilis, probably no A-Rod. There’s not anyone to get excited about.” A major league scout added in the same report: “Harvey and Wheeler give you a reason […]
According to ESPN’s Jim Bowden, Major League Baseball has just approved the trade of Alfonso Soriano from the Cubs to Yankees. Bowden said that Soriano officially waived his no-trade rights and the trade is now official. The Cubs will pay roughly $17.7 million of the approximately $24.5 million left on Soriano‘s contract, and that they are considering several low-level minor league pitching prospects in return. Soriano returns to the Yankees, with whom he made his major league […]
Yesterday, after I posted on what someone from Men’s Journal had sent me and asked to share their article for our readers, I didn’t quite get a chance to weigh in on the totality of the article which covered a lot of ground. I simply posted a quick excerpt for them with a link to their full article. It’s quite apparent that Matt Harvey has a taste for the finer things in life, is huge […]
I asked some of our writers what they felt were the Best and Worst moments for the Mets in the first half, and it looks like the consensus for the best was when we swept the Yankees and the Empire State Building was brightly lit up in Blue and Orange. Daniel Nelson Best Moment: I’d have to say sweeping the Yankees in four games was pretty special. You hang onto moments like that when you […]
In the summer of 1990 the Yankees were playing the White Sox in a relatively unimportant game. “Neon” Deion Sanders walked to the plate and with the end of his bat he drew an “S” in the dirt with a line through it. A dollar sign. The Sox catcher immediately wiped it away. Undeterred, the 22-year-old Sanders again marked the area in front of home plate with a dollar sign. “That’s why I’m here,” he stated […]
