Real work and I got nothing today.

I am still recovering from that great QBC on Saturday but alas my real job is getting in my way of posting today. I’ll try to do something later but for now peruse my last few days of posts to see what you missed.

@QBConvention 2019 Thoughts

Hey everyone!!! So who had a good time at the QBC this year? Me, Dan and all the volunteers are exhausted from Saturday but it's a good exhaustion. We are trying to recover( I was in bed all day yesterday).

That seemed like a success. SNY's Shea Anything an BBNY panels were fun. Ed Kranepool, Edgardo Alfonzo, and Darryl Strawberry had some great stories and were great with the crowds. Todd Zeile was a great addition to the signing alley. I had a great convo with him sitting in the booth while we were waiting for the line to fill up and it did. The vendors had some great stuff(sorry about the chill in the air in the tent). Dennis Holden had some great trivia and prizes. Shannon Shark brought it with the Meet the Mets Execs and the Uniform Panel (you guys got to see some of my collection).Oh yeah that David Wright fella got the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire award and even had a video message for everyone.

Again thanks to everyone for making this a great event!!!

@Mets: No more moves because McNeil needs playing time? Really?

From the NY POST

“Let’s be candid: The outfield is probably not our top priority at this point.”
Pertaining to the possibility of Machado, the GM added: “I think from a fit standpoint, both in the outfield and infield, I think we’re in a pretty good position.”
Van Wagenen cited the need to find playing time for Jeff McNeil as a reason the Mets do not consider the outfield a priority. McNeil may receive the majority of his at-bats as an outfielder, following the additions of Lowrie and Robinson Cano this offseason, with rookie Peter Alonso in the mix for a potential starting job. Todd Frazier and Amed Rosario are also returning to the infield.
Read more here. 

Let me get this right. You aren't going to try to shore up the team in any other way because McNeil needs playing time? Maybe you shouldn't have traded for Cano or sign Lowrie to take away from McNeil's playing time.  I am hoping that this is just because the Brodie has more moves coming and is being super coy...
