Francesa Talks to Terry Collins



I am not a fan of Francesa but I saw this on Metsblog.

Terry Collins did an interview at an even over the weekend with Francesa and this is interesting.


In a quick, word-association series of questions, Collins had the following to say about...
Yoenis Cespedes: "Tool-for-tool, he's as good as anybody in baseball. He's a different guy to manage. He's a quirky guy, you know. He has the ability to turn the league upside down if he wants to."

 Michael Conforto: "I just hope he comes back from this injury. ... He's got a chance to be great. ... I'm just so worried that if he doesn't take his time in rehabbing that shoulder that the joint loosens up again there could be problems
Noah Syndergaard: "Next year, when they mentioned those three guys that they did [last week] for the Cy Young, he's going to be one of those guys in that group."
Jacob deGrom: "DeGrom is the old school baseball player in the new school era. He's a competitor, he takes the baseball, doesn't want to give it up. No excuses. Extremely accountable for everything, one of the best teammates I've ever been around."

You can read the whole article here. 

The comments about Cespedes are pretty telling." HE COULD TURN THE LEAGUE UPSIDE DOWN IF HE WANTS TOO". I don't think he wants to.



New Mets BP Cap?

This kid Nikko is good you guys should follow him.
I like the Pro Light style caps. Not a fan of the “Chrome” though.

Justice League Review







In this off season(which is quiet as hell right now) I am going to venture off and write some stuff about some pop culture. Let’s delve into the Justice League.

I don’t want to give too many things away in case you want to watch it, but I’ll just hit a few thoughts I had about it. Possible spoilers ahead.

Music- it was nice to hear the 1978 And 1989 Superman and Batman themes being played when Supes and Bats showed up. It made the movie seem grander.

Characters-

Batman was quippy. Made a lot of Jokes. I kind of feel like he should be more of the straight man with a joke very rarely when in the cowl. As Bruce Wayne, the jokes could have been fast and furious and charming. Would have been a great way just to show the difference in the two sides of the same coin.

Aquaman- I love what they did with him. Made him a badass loner with some great one liners. The bit with the Golden Lasso is killer.

Flash- I guess they were making him unfocused because of the speed force and his brain working faster then normal. I want to
see how they explain how he got his powers. There’s a weird timing issue that is different then comics origin.

Cyborg- brooding, strong, didn’t want to be on the team at first but was a solid character. Actually liked him a lot. As a character I like him more then if they would have used Martian Manhunter.

Wonder Woman- they just have her character in the zone. Truest to comics.

Superman- by now everyone knows he’s back so I’m not spilling anything groundbreaking. The character seemed the same at first, still kind of meh. The suit seemed bluer and not in a grayish filter. I think the character might be becoming “lighter” in future films.

Steppenwolf as the villain bored me. He really didn’t “scary” to me. He was the typical overconfident “Ultron” type villain. I just didny care about him. They gave this whole backstory about the parademons and you never see them add any more to of themselves to their ranks.

Visuals- Wasn’t shot as dark as Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman, but some of
The CGI stuff took me out of the movie. The underwater stuff was great, but the background at end if the movie was meh. Flash running around was cool but we have seen it before in X-Men movies with Quicksilver.

Overall- movie was “fun”. Better then Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman, but not as good as Wonder Woman. I actually didn’t hate this movie like the way I hated B Vs S.

Mets: David Wright into Arizona Fall League HOF

David Wright made it into the Arizona Fall League HOF. Congrats to him. But this pic of him doesn't look like Wright.


It reminded me of something. You guys remember Steve Rogers in Captain America before the super soldier serum?


Every time I see David Wright in my mind, I think of the pic below.




I just help in the long run his health doesn't deteriorate any more.

Mets: Sign Pitcher Matt Purke





Met’s are going for their “Blue Friday” deals early.

From the NY Post.

“Matt Purke, a 27-year-old lefty, was signed to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training, the team announced.

The former first-round pick by the Rangers spent last season with the White Sox’s Triple-A affiliate in Charlotte, going 4-5 with a 3.97 ERA in 48 relief appearances.

His only major league experience came in 2016, when he pitched in 12 games for the White Sox. He went 0-1 with a 5.50 ERA in 18 innings, with 15 strikeouts. Purke underwent Tommy John surgery in 2014.”
