Baseball Etiquette




No one ever pays attention to this anymore. I think it's time that the ushers have to be allowed to step in again like they do at other ball parks. So annoying S

Mets: Driving Trivia




Count me among the many who were confused by seeing a mustang driven onto the warning track Monday night for a trivia contest.

It was called something something Driving trivia. The car was stationary, so I don't get the title. I checked out really quick so I don't even know what the questions or the prize were.

Anyone?

d'Arnaud to the d'A list


METS PLACE TRAVIS d’ARNAUD ON DL/SELECT RENE RIVERA

FLUSHING, N.Y., April 26, 2016 – The New York Mets today announced the club has placed catcher Travis d’Arnaud on the 15-Day Disabled List with a right rotator cuff strain and selected the contract of catcher Rene Rivera from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League. In order to make room on the 40-man roster, the Mets transferred RHP Zack Wheeler to the 60-Day DL.

Rivera, 32, will wear #44 and will be available for tonight’s game vs. Cincinnati. He made a career-high 87 starts last year with Tampa Bay and threw out 23 of 63 base runners, the third-best percentage (36.5) in the majors. Overall, his career rate of 34.4 (73 of 212) of throwing out base runners is second among active catchers to Yadier Molina (40.3).

The 5-10, 215-pounder has 45 doubles, 20 home runs and has driven in 92 runs in 334 games over parts of seven major league seasons with the Mariners, Padres, Twins and Rays.

Rivera hit .252 (74-294) with a career-high 11 home runs in 103 games for the Padres in 2014.

He went to Spring Training with Tampa Bay this year before he was released on March 30. Rivera signed a minor league contract with the Mets on April 5.

Rivera was hitting .280 (7-25) with one double and five RBI in eight games with Las Vegas (AAA).

Rivera spent the 2009 season with the Mets Triple-A affiliate Buffalo (AAA) of the International League where he hit .233 (56-239) with 14 doubles, nine home runs and 30 RBI in 68 games.

Mr. Met is Super Awesome Commercial.

Taking a break from eBay posts(costing me too damn much money. I go on it looking for fun stuff to post and end up buying it.) So here is an old commercial.

Neil Walker Chants....




So we went from hating Murphy to loving Murphy in the playoffs to hating the Mets for letting Murphy go to trading for Walker and being iffy on Walker to the fans loving Walker. Now at first I was just doing the Walker schtick to mess with my cousin over at metspolice.com but I am really starting to enjoy the way he is swinging a bat and playing second. Walker even hit another HR last night, this time the game winner and he got some love from the7linearmy....

Jacob deGrom's Son's Medical Issue


deGrom finally let it be known what was the medical issue with his son. He would stop breathing whenever he fell asleep.

That has got to be so scary as a parent to have something like that happening to your newborn. I know I can speak for all of everyone and say that we are all glad that Jaxon was able to over come it.

What's Happening with Harvey?




Who thinks it's mental and not mechanical for Harvey? He was "the" guy for a hot minute before Tommy John surgery and the emergence of the other Mets pitchers?

Going from the Marquee guy to the number three "star"ter might be in his head. This guy craves attention whether it's on the mound or off. Maybe this is all just in his head?

From the NY Post-
"The Mets’ struggling ace — who comes into Friday’s start in Atlanta 0-3 with a 5.71 ERA — is coming off a great bullpen session on Tuesday, and a conversation with pitching coach Dan Warthen had Collins confident a bounceback performance is on tap. "

What do you folks think? Mechanical or Mental?

Bowling For Charity 4/24/2016




This Sunday in White Plains....





Hey guys. Dennis aka DHAP aka Dennis has a podcast aka Big Show lookalike and I are assembling teams to bowl for a good cause. It's to help raise money for research for Huntington's disease.

We will crown either Team DHAP or Team Mediagoon with this.






If anyone wants to come and hang and not bowl and just support the cause you can come join us. It's $25 a head for a non bowler and it includes refreshments and a meet and greet with a NY Rangers Former Player.

If you want to bowl it's $50 a head and you also get what the non bowler gets.

So if you want to just watch Team Mediagoon beat team DHAP or want to bowl in another lane for fun, please come and help us raise some bucks.

Battle of the Jerseys:1986

Went into my collection and brought out a 1986 throwback jersey that majestic made a few years back. No nameplate on it but sure looks good without the diaper. The Wright one is an "authentic" style that saw the field in 2006.





Thanks for the help.









- Looks soooo much nicer.

Stay Classy Philly

Nope. This wasn't about the Mets/Phillies game. It was the Flyers/Capitals.

Philly fans are some of the worst fans in sports but I feel the downward spiral with fans at a lot of cities. The violence at Dodgers games, the cursing and yelling at kids at ballparks I've visited over the years and also some of the stuff I've seen by drunk fans at Rangers and Mets games really anger and make me sad at the same time. One of the things that really annoys me is during the National Anthem at Rangers games some idiot always yells Let's Go Rangers during it.

But anyway look what happened at the hockey game down in Philly last night. Just disrespectful.

How did fans become so classless? How has fandom devolved from rooting for your team to just being a total ahole? Is it the betting on sports? Too much alcohol? Or is it something deeper in our society that is going on?
