The fourth Thursday of November is upon us, and that can only mean one thing. Time to eat a lot and be thankful about it! Other things to be thankful for: Your friends and family during the recovery from Superstorm Sandy. Another thing to be thankful for? Mets baseball. It doesn’t matter how they’re doing in the standings, but we all have something to talk about and bond over. That’s the real value of sports in our lives.
In other news, the Mets filled out their 40-man roster. Not much to see here, but that doesn’t stop the Twitter faithful from overreacting. Actually, the big news is that Zack Wheeler is now on the 40-man. You don’t have to be a psychic to see that Zack will be in the big leagues at some point in 2013, which is certainly something to look forward to.
Meanwhile, the Mets seem more determined than ever to sign both David Wright and R.A. Dickey. If you believe Jeff Wilpon.
But some people think the chances are only 50/50 when it comes to Wright.
And the Mets have graduated from the fruit and nuts section to the frozen food isle, but that still doesn’t preclude them from a little dumpster diving.
Have a great Thanksgiving, wherever and with whomever you may spend it, and keep checking out Mets Today during the offseaon.
