They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this photo says it all. Try to cut it down by about 980 or so, and post an appropriate caption in the comments. Many thanks to “MrJeromy” for letting me re-publish this great shot. You can follow him on Twitter, read his blog, and/or check [...]
What is the fundamental difference between rooting for the Yankees and supporting the Mets? Following is one real-life example coming “out of left field” (pardon the pun). Today, Yankees fans are arguing over who between Andruw Jones and Raul Ibanez should lose at-bats to Ichiro Suzuki, since all three play left field. Meanwhile, Mets fans [...]
Pretend you have a crystal ball, and it can read three months into the future. It tells you that if the Mets trade Daniel Murphy, Zack Wheeler, Matt Harvey, and Kirk Nieuwenhuis to the Phillies for Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, and Shane Victorino, the Mets will win the 2012 World Series. If the deal isn’t [...]
Maybe I’m a jerk for feeling this way, but when I found out the Mets were selling reprints of the game tickets to Johan Santana’s no-hitter, I burst out laughing. The concept is hilarious to me — why would anyone ever pay for something like that? I can almost, sort of, understand buying unused tickets [...]
Last night my wife and I enjoyed watching the Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals on ESPN. Thankfully it occurred on an off-night for the Mets, because, honestly, it would have been tough to decide upon which to watch (OK, not really; I’d have DVR’d the Mets game and watched it afterward). During the Bee, my [...]
Not this, I bet … That’s the Harvard baseball team, whose team bus is a little smaller than the Mets’ ride, but perhaps more full of creativity. Phil Linz likely would find a friendly seat among them. These traveling young men turned this silly video into a fund raiser for brain tumor patients. Well done. [...]
For once, the Mets are light years ahead of everyone else with a brilliant, innovative idea — one that might change the way MLB rosters are constructed and The Game Itself.
Former Met Lenny Dykstra can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Dykstra’s latest run-in with the law occurred yesterday, when he was arrested on two counts of indecent exposure. From CNN: The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office says the charges stem from multiple reports involving Dykstra dating back to 2009. The charges accuse Dykstra of [...]
Last night during the postgame show on SNY, Bob Ojeda had a passionate reaction to Mets manager Terry Collins’ press conference. Ojeda suggested that there are players on the current Mets team who are not as intensely concerned with winning as they should be. Here is the direct quote from Ojeda: “… I better start [...]
During the postgame on SNY last night, Terry Collins lost his composure. Just a few of his quotes:
Normally we don’t link to Yankee blogs. But in this case, we must. Read Ryan Tandy’s latest conspiracy theory post on Bronx Brass Tax. It will explain why the Mets are playing in a stadium that looks like Ebbetts Field. And even if you don’t believe in conspiracy theories, this one has all the pieces [...]
MLB commissioner Bud Selig has announced that he is appointing someone to take over operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers. From The New York Times:
From the “you know things are tough when …” department: The Mets have three players — Jose Reyes, Chris Young, and Chris Capuano — with a batting average higher than their winning percentage. Normally, that would be good news. Unfortunately, that’s awful news, considering the team’s current winning percentage is .294.
It wasn’t long ago that Lenny Dykstra was known as a smart investor and successful businessman. Oh, how times have changed. Lenny has been arrested for selling items that were part of his bankrupt estate, including a $50,000 granite sink. Fifty grand for a sink? No wonder he went bankrupt.
