About Stolen Bases, Reyes, Leadership

A couple of years ago I read Dayn Perry’s Winners: How Good Baseball Teams Become Great Ones (And It’s Not the Way You Think) (Kindle version here). It’s an excellent book that breaks down different areas of statistical performance and tries to correlate which ones winning teams excel at. One of the things Perry discusses […]

CitiField Streaker Could Get Year In Jail

The CitiField streaker is finding that streaking is not as harmless as he expected. I guess he and his lawyer, who he claims to have consulted before his not so random act of stupidity, didn’t realize what the penalties were for such an act. The first penalty is a lifetime ban from CitiField. That’s tight, […]



Lastings Milledge: All Star? Let’s Make It Happen!

Someone in the Sons of Sam Horn forum called Wade Boggs Hair had an interesting idea: As good citizens of NatsTown, I think we need to get as many Natinals on the All-Star team as possible. Specifically, Lastings Milledge is on the NL All-Star ballot. He needs to make the team. Nothing would be more […]



Use The Asterisk

John Delcos is advocating use of the asterisk for players linked to steroids. Though I believe baseball should be doing more to remove the cheaters from the game I’m also smart enough to realize that it never will because it’s not in their best interest. (A government approved independent third party really should be handling […]



Yankees (& Fans) Are Down

With the attention that Mike Francesa gives the Yankees and how he seemingly dreads saying anything positive about the Mets they should change the name of his Sunday night show on channel 4 from Mike’d Up to Yank’ed Up. (Giving credit where it’s due Mike’d Up is a clever name for a sports show.) Did […]

According to many reports Anna Benson has filed for divorce from husband and former Mets pitcher Kris Benson claiming their marriage has been “irretrievably broken”.



Pedro and Vernon Wells To Sit Out First Round of WBC

Today’s Newsday is reporting that Mets ace Pedro Martinez will not pitch in the first round of the World Baseball Classic (WBC). He hopes to play in later rounds if he feels up to it. This comes on the heels of Toronto Blue Jays outfielder



Anna Benson, Poker Stud

Anna Benson, beloved by all Mets fans as the wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson, is trying her hand at poker.



Podcasting Mets Games… Revisited

I hate when the Mets play on the west coast. With a family at home that doesn’t give me much opportunity to watch games it’s hard enough for me to follow the team when we’re in the same time zone. Shifting them over to Pacific time totally throws me off. I’m lucky if I can […]



MLB Takes a Holiday

Sorry for the absentee long weekend. I figured if MLB can schedule days off on Memorial Day then why can’t I? But seriously, how can they schedule only 6 games on Memorial Day? What ever happened to the days of holiday doubleheaders? I can understand if they don’t play two but at least play 1! […]
