Some Wild Predictions

Since I handed out end of the year awards already, let’s take a few minutes to discuss the wild card games.  Over the last few weeks, there has been a lot of discussion regarding the inherent unfairness of the play in game and how six months of baseball shouldn’t come down to one game.  Oddly …

End of Year Award Time!

We should probably discuss the end of year awards. I was lazy and didn’t write up my preseason predictions, which is fine because I would have been wrong for all of them. I was wrong for all of them last year. Who knew that Stephen Strasburg wasn’t ready to take the leap—every Nationals fan, apparently—or …

Sunshine and Smiles in Hollywood

After Tuesday’s rains, a sunny, cloudless Orlando day was a welcome sight for touring Hollywood Studios. It would be perfect. It would be all rainbows and kittens from this moment on. How did our day start? My daughter let it be known she didn’t want to go to Hollywood Studios and wanted to be home …

Celebrating the Mets Division Win

How do I celebrate the Mets first division championship since 2006? By going to Disney World of course! This is me totally geeking out in the Magic Kingdom.

Noah Syndergaard: About Last Night (September 25)

I didn’t think we’d be here. Not if I’m being honest. If you’™ve read this blog for any length of time (if so, thanks!) you know I’ve voiced my fair share of complaints. Prior to the trade deadline, right after the failed Carlos Gomez trade, I voiced many of those complaints in a rather scathing …

Steven Matz: About Last Night (September 24)

It seems like only yesterday when Steven Matz debuted against the Cincinnati Reds and Brandon Phillips homered to lead off the game.  Of course, if my memory serves me right, Matz’s first pitch went all Nuke LaLoosh and nearly tossed the ball over the backstop, was down 3-0 to Phillips, and then the home run. …

Bartolo Colon: About Last Night (September 23)

How you feel about the last few days probably gets into whether you’re a glass half empty or glass half full type of person. In other words, if you’re not a Mets fan you probably see this series against Atlanta—and this home stand in general where the team went 3-6 and lost three straight series …
