Dick’s Sporting Goods: Sports Matter MLB Caps



What is this about?
 Billions of dollars in funding have been cut from youth sports programs in recent years, leaving millions of students unable to play. The DICK'S Sporting Goods Foundation created the Sports Matter program because we believe that sports make people better. Sports build character, increase confidence, and motivate kids to stay in school and aim for higher education. Since 2014, the Foundation, together with DICK'S Sporting Goods, has pledged over $50 million to give children the opportunity to play. Through these efforts, the Sports Matter initiative has raised awareness of the importance of youth sports and saved over 1,800 teams. Learn more about this crisis of youth sports below.



MG-at least Dick’s is telling us where the money is going right away and we don’t have to keep pushing for answers! MLB this is how you do it.

deGrom wants to stay with the Mets?


Looks like deGrom is trying to do some damage control.
From the NY Post.
"It’s actually been fine," the right-hander said Tuesday at Nationals Park, a few hours before the All-Star Game began. "I think we expressed that we’ve enjoyed it here. We’d like to stay. It’s up to the Mets. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and enjoyed winning here. I’d like to get back to that."

DeGrom’s agent, Brodie Van Wagenen, won him and his client some back pages on Monday, when the All-Stars hold news conferences and work out, by declaring deGrom’s wish to get an extension from the Mets and, short of that, for the Mets to explore a trade of him. The 30-year-old deGrom can’t become a free agent until after the 2020 season.

Mike Piazza’s Soccer Club Bankrupt?



This is interesting..
From the NY Post
Reggiana, the third-division Italian soccer team Mike Piazza agreed to purchase in 2016, has been declared bankrupt, according to reports out of Italy.

The team announced on June 24 that it would not be registering in Serie C for the forthcoming season because of its financial issues.

Five days later, the team had begun negotiations with an ownership group led by businessman Pablo Victor Dana, but those negotiations reportedly have ended unsuccessfully, and Reggiana declined to appeal the June 13 ruling that booted them from Serie C. The club, which was founded in 1919, was relegated from Italy’s top flight in 1997 and forced to sell the naming rights of its stadium in subsequent years because of financial woes.

Trump Tax Laws causing MLB ticket slump?



Has nothing to do with people not happy with the MLB product at all. I am sure the tax laws have affected some business buying tix though.
From the NY Post
ure, the awful weather this spring and the fact that there are too many boring strikeouts and the dominance of just a few teams this season could also be reasons that fans are attending games between 5 percent and 6 percent less often in 2018 than they did last year.

But the real reason baseball is having a down year going into tonight’s All-Star Game is the fact that Trump’s tax law changes eliminated the deduction companies used to buy pricey tickets.

That, anyway, is the explanation that some accountants have for the falloff in ticket sales —although they also claim companies are making a mistake by not taking customers to games.

Nick Francona Fired. Taking a Stand against the MLB and where the proceeds of the Memorial Day jerseys go.



This is was a legit question that Shannon over at Metspolice.com and I have been asking about this for years and years. They keep saying money was being donated to a charity. The MLB never said what charity or how much was donated. Now, we have a Marine who served for this country poking around asking about the same things we asked about over the years and he gets fired? Mets really know how to mess things up. Remember the last firing they had a few years ago that ended up in a lawsuit that they settled out of court? Look up Leah Castergine and the Mets.

From the NY POST
The 33-year-old Francona, a U.S. Marine who commanded a scout-sniper platoon in Afghanistan, now believes his baseball career is finished. Francona was previously fired by the Dodgers after a clash with Gabe Kapler, then the organization’s director of player development. Francona alleged Kapler, now the Phillies manager, discriminated against him after he sought help from an organization that treats veterans for “invisible wounds of war.” The Dodgers denied the allegations and MLB officials investigated the matter, but determined no action was warranted against Kapler.
“I don’t feel like I am the morality police and tell people how to observe Memorial Day properly,” Francona said Monday in a phone interview with The Post. “Major League Baseball has proactively waded into these waters and I think [criticism] is fair when you are going to sell apparel. They are explicitly marketing this as Memorial Day and tying it to the memory of dead soldiers.”
Francona said he repeatedly asked MLB for evidence the proceeds from the Memorial Day apparel were directed toward charities connected with military families, but was stonewalled each time. He then began raising the issue on Twitter.
In late May he was informed by Mets general manager Sandy — who has since taken a medical leave of absence from the club as he battles recurring cancer — the Mets had decided to fire him. Francona, who arrived to the organization in spring 2017, said he was told his work performance wasn’t the issue, but his stand on the military apparel proceeds had forced his dismissal.
“There was something liberating about the fact actually that you know there are some limitations when you come to the Mets so this isn’t an ideal organization and a highly functioning place,” Francona said. “But do the best you can with that in mind. That is like a fun challenge to embrace and something I actually enjoyed.”
Francona said he was told by team COO Jeff Wilpon that he was making a “big impact” with his initiatives within the farm system. The fact Wilpon left Francona’s firing to Alderson bothered Francona.

This was the first year that the MLB said where the money was going to that wasn't a seemingly defunct group. Also for years the Mother and Father's day jerseys proceeds were going to unknown  charity too and now they are finally saying where they are donating.

Monday, July 16, 2018

Hey @mets, there was a challenge sent to Jeff Wilpon on eBay.

                     


Hey guys, this game across last night to me.  This was posted on eBay last night.
Every New York sports fan remembers the first sporting event held in New York after the tragic events of 9/11. The NY Mets played their arch rivals, the Atlanta Braves. The Mets went on to win that game with late inning heroics by Mike Piazza who hit a two run home run in the 8th inning to give the Mets the lead and eventually the win.
What you might not know is that the jersey that Mike Piazza wore from that historic game sold in April 2016 for $365,000. The Mets and Their ownership were criticized for selling the jersey instead of keeping the jersey and putting it in the Mets Hall of Fame and Museum that is located in Citi Field for future generations of Met fans to enjoy.
With the backlash from fans on sports radio stations, Mets management issued this statement, “We admit that we made a mistake, and have instituted a new process with internal controls to prevent something like this from happening again in the future”. A mistake? It is more like twenty more mistakes! When I purchased the Piazza 9/11 jersey years ago I also purchased twenty other 9/11 style jersey’s directly from the Mets along with many other items that the Mets were selling. After the sale of the Piazza jersey and my relationship with the Mets started to sour, I approached them with a deal to buy back the twenty jersey’s from me. And they refused. Maybe because the Mets were in a pennant race and they didn’t have time to think about it, but now as we head towards the All Star break and the Mets season is pretty much over, now they can think about my next deal.
I challenge the Mets to buy back the same twenty 9/11 jersey’s that they sold me for $50,000. I don’t want one cent of the money. The Mets would have to make two checks, both for $25,000 each. The first would be made to the Shannon Forde Foundation. Shannon was a long time employee of the Mets and past away two years ago from cancer. Shannon has two young children that could use the money for their education. The second check would be made out to Ed Kranepool. Kranepool was a long time Met that gave his heart and soul to the team for 18 long seasons. He is an original Met and also played on that miracle team in 1969 that won the World Series. Ed is in need of a kidney transplant and this money will help with his hospital bills.
I see this deal as a win, win, win situation. That’s almost as many wins the Mets got in June! The Mets win by getting the 9/11 jersey’s out of the public’s hands and two of their former employees will receive money that they definitely need. The only thing that could stop the Mets from making this deal would be if they are questioning the authenticity of the jersey’s. But I purchased them directly from the Mets, so they have to be authentic, right?


I Challenge the Mets Management to Buy these Jersey's Back!!! I will not except less than $50,000 from the Mets. 

Well, I see a gauntlet has been thrown..... Your move Mets. You can see the listing from eBay here.

Here we go. deGrom’s Agent swelling up. Pay him or trade him!



Why don’t agents just shut the hell up? It doesn’t help their clients in the fans eyes when they start swelling up and giving ultimatums. Yes. The Mets should pay deGrom and keep him. Remember when agents just were behind the scenes and we as fans had no idea who they were? Can we get back to that?


The agent for the team’s ace seemed to be expressing frustration with the lack of progress in an extension for the dominant right-hander on Monday, shortly after it was announced Max Scherzer will start Tuesday’s All-Star Game over deGrom, and suggested the Mets should either decide to get serious with locking up his client or look to move him.

“We have discussed Jacob’s future with the Mets at length. Jacob has expressed interest in exploring a long-term partnership that would keep him in a Mets uniform for years to come,” CAA’s Brodie van Wagenen’s told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. “If the Mets don’t share [the] same interest, we believe their best course of action is to seriously consider trade opportunities now. The inertia of [the] current situation could complicate Jacob’s relationship with the club and creates an atmosphere of indecision.”

Mr Met busting out some dance moves in DC at MLB AllStar Game Festivities




Here's something... I've been serious so far today so enjoy...

Why is Jose Reyes Playing?



That guy that likes to stoke the fire on certain subjects over at Metspolice aka my cousin thinks he might have figured out why Reyes is playing everyday for the Mets right now.
There was some sort of conversation that Jose is done as player. Someone somewhere decided to give him one last chance and not just kick the guy to the curb. That someone somewhere said that they would play him every day for say two weeks into the break, but if its not working then Jose would have to choose to retire on his own or else his career ends with the DFA.
Read more here.
Honestly, that’s not a bad theory. The question is, do the Mets buy him out in a deal or does he just walks away from the money? Or if Reyes just retires do the Mets get to save money from the rest of this year and next year.
