Does This Post Prove That These Tweets Suck?

Yes. Yes it does.




- What are you talking about? Of course it did!! One good game negates all the bad games he's had. Just like one bad at bat negates all the good a player has done(Beltran).




Yep it was last night and last night only that proved that!!!

Does your twitter account prove you are a #hack?

@mets: Disney is Remaking The Lion King

I know Cespedes can't wait for this.




From IO9.com
Disney’s putting a “reimagining” of The Lion King in the hands of Jon Favreau, following his version of The Jungle Book raking in piles and piles of money. This trend of Disney remaking its own hits forever and ever is great. A live-action Frozen movie has to be coming soon, right?

Foul Ball Hits a Kid- Mets React


This was a cool thing the Mets did after a young kid took a foul ball off the arm during a Jay Bruce at bat. The Mets got the ball back from the crowd, signed it gave the kid back the ball and also a bat.

I don't have the time to find the video to embed it so here is the link.

Mets: Countdown




You guys nervous? Mets got this in the bag? You guys worried about a repeat of a collapse from 2008? Are you putting in for a day off for the wild card game already?

Big stretch here but I expect the Mets are in the wild card game. My expert analysis is (just insert whatever " hot takes" the sports writers and "blog experts" and twitter experts are writing right now thinking that they are original).

I really can't wait to see October baseball again. I am probably going to watch the Mets play the Phillies down in Philly on Saturday. Who else is going?

STEVEN MATZ MEDICAL UPDATE

I was watching him toss in the outfield the other day with the other pitchers. You heard the leather of the gloves snap when all the other pitchers were letting loose. When Matz tossed the ball it the glove sounded like it caught something I threw... Yep. Didn't see this coming.


STEVEN MATZ MEDICAL UPDATE

FLUSHING, N.Y., September 27, 2016 – The New York Mets today announced that lefthanded pitcher Steven Matz will not pitch the rest of the 2016 season or postseason due to a sore left shoulder. The shoulder will not require surgery. However, Matz will undergo surgery next week at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to remove bone spurs in his left elbow.

Matz is expected to be ready for Spring Training in 2017.

Some Thoughts From the Last Few Days





I couldn't catch the ceremony honoring the life of Jose Fernandez yesterday due to working my real job but from what I heard everyone was an emotional mess.

I am glad for a change most folks realized that there are things more important then baseball. From what I have heard from folks I know around baseball Jose Fernandez was respected and liked/loved by almost everyone he has had contact with.

I do have some issues with folks making fun of a tragedy like this. I know you didn't know him personally and he is just another "athlete" to a lot of you but he was a person. He was a fellow human with a family, friends, teammates, and a child now on the way into this world without a father. So yeah real funny. I hope nothing serious happens to you and your family and friends have to deal with people making jokes at your expense.

The next group I have a problem with are the folks that think they are beat writers and sports talk radio guys(podcasters and pay for time on local station guys). You aren't good. If you were good, you would get paid for this. You try to be witty, or cause controversy on twitter but you guys are horrible also. You too, like the "comedians" think you are funny or something special. For every good twitter account, podcast, blog, or radio show, there are 50 or more wannabes that don't know what they are doing.

Now I know my blog isn't the greatest thing in the world. When I wrote for Metspolice.com, we didn't take ourselves seriously. We also knew how to act when it was the time to be respectful.

Remember these players are people. They have family, friends, teammates and others that will miss them.

MLB Sues Vendors In Wrigleyville

Interesting. Maybe they should start sending some letters to eBay...

From Forbes.com
One currently unknown potential defendant owns and operates the website “Chi Apparel,” which sells shirts bearing many of the Cubs’ known trademarks as well as names of some of the Cubs’ more popular players.



Screen shot of website “Chi Apparel,” which is named as an infringer in the Cubs’ and MLB’s Complaint.


With the Cubs success on and off the field comes a concern that the franchise and MLB will lose out on receiving revenue from merchandise sold. In fact, the Cubs and MLB have filed a lawsuit against known vendors who are selling unlicensed goods.

Okay, we will start with the majestic patch on the front of the jersey with then sizing. It's. it supposed to be stitched on. It's supposed to be a screen printed material. The numbers and letters are the wrong material. They are supposed to be stiff and not made of a fabric. The size of the Mets lettering is too big. The name on the back shouldn't have any of that white material attached to it on the inside of the jersey.

Mets: MJ Gets Her Mets Fan of the Year Award





Fraud?: They Myth of Big Papi




Woah.. I know this isn't Mets related. But wow...

From theWeek.com written by Anthony L. Fisher

Ortiz's universal adoration in Boston will withstand the test of time. Expect every dive bar in New England to name a chowder recipe in his honor. Ortiz is more than a player. He is Big Papi.

But here's the thing: Big Papi is a myth.

It's a myth that has endured a career's worth of evidence to the contrary. It's a myth enabled by wide-eyed sportswriters who insist that "the myth of Papi has no dark edges" and that this 40-year-old "Father Christmas" figure — at an age where the skills of all of his baseball contemporaries have long since succumbed to the ravages of time — is having a completely unimpeachable career season at the plate.
The man behind the myth is less appealing. David Ortiz is a thin-skinned, self-promoting narcissist, prone to violent tantrums and playing fast and loose with the truth, possessing a persecution complex that would make Richard Nixon blush.

This is a great read. GREAT!!!!

Ortiz's legacy as a baseball deity in Boston is deserved, and secure. But there's more to his legacy: PED suspicions, non-stop self-aggrandizement, and relentless whining about contracts, official scorers, and the rare beanball.

More Forced Mets Super Hero Names: Part 5


Marketing/twitter/Mets Fans/Media are all getting ridiculous with the obsession of giving Mets Players forced comic book hero names. I decided that I am going to jump in with some myself then...Running out of characters so I am really scraping the bottom of the barrel here folks....


                                                   Asdrubel "Thunder Strike" Cabrera

"Hey Guys, I have an idea. Since Cabrera went blonde, let's start calling him Thunder Strike. It's as cool as Thor. And we can add a long piece of fake hair to his hat and helmet. Think of the promo giveaways!!"


Eric Masterson first appeared in Thor #391, as a supporting character. Thor #408 featured the merging of the character Eric Masterson with Thor, Masterson being utilized as the God of Thunder's alter ego until issue #432.[2] Thor #432 featured the character assuming the role of Thor, and appearing as the title character until Thor #459.[3]
Following Thor #459, Masterson was introduced as "Thunderstrike" in the eponymous series starting in June 1993. The series lasted approximately two years. Thunderstrike ran for 24 issues, the series canceled in September 1995. Creator Tom DeFalco has often claimed that the book outsold Thor and The Avengers combined at the time of its cancellation;[4] although this has been shown to be extremely unlikely.[5] Masterson also appeared in the mini-series Thor Corps as Thunderstrike, and appeared as a guest star in the Thor series.

The way Terry Collins manages the Mets bullpen can be considered very perplexing. Maybe it is even  little bit of a riddle. Terry Collins- The Riddler!! It makes so much sense, especially after the way he managed the Mets to a loss last night...
