K-Rod – High-profile signing, but perhaps lacking substance … ?

December 29, 2008

Guest blogger Andrew Kennis writes: This year’s hot stove period has produced little substance in terms of the Mets’ biggest signing. The Mets would have been better off opting for a closer who has more substance than style. Indeed, there has been a significant amount of criticism of K-Rod, and with good reason: Without being […]


December Ramblings

December 16, 2008

It’s about that time for some random thoughts… First up, it’s been a snowy day in Chicago and at 2pm when I headed to work, the three main streets I drive on, all main roadways by the way, had not been touched by plows. Just wonderful. Keep on buying those SUV’s city of Chicago and […]


November Ramblings

November 17, 2008

Here we are, half way through the month of November and the baseball hot stove is heating up. Yay. Great. Woo-hoo. Seriously, tell me when deals are done. I’m not a fan of the rumors, the daily reports and so on. I know the Mets need pitching help and I hope they are smart about […]


It Is What It Is

September 29, 2008

The season is over. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said? It sucks for sure. But I suppose being in the hunt was better than not being in it all like the Nats, Braves and Marlins. Right? I flew into New York Sunday morning for a friends wedding. Staying with my mom […]


My lone post from NYC

August 13, 2008

Long time no post…   Anyway, I’m just starting week two of my three weeks in NYC for work. Some non-work highlights included seeing Eddie Vedder in concert at the United Palace Theater, a Mets game at Shea – most likely my last, and seeing a whole bunch of friends and old co-workers.   So, in no particular […]


Fun and Games with Matty and Tiffany

July 17, 2008

My old pals Tiffany Simons and Matty Blake at NBCSports.com were set loose at the All-Star game the other night. The result is the video below…I encourage you to watch for some fun stuff with Billy Wagner and one of his sons.


Around the Majors

July 14, 2008

Ok, well not exactly, but this is my mid-season post about all things Julie: Let’s start with the Mets. They are on a nine-game winning streak. I don’t really care if it’s the change in the clubhouse or whatever that caused this upswing, I’m just glad it’s finally happening – on all levels. The young […]


Meet Mookie

June 29, 2008

He’s the Rubinstein family dog. And after about 10 years we finally got him some Mets gear. It was a bit small so we had to custom tailor it a little.


Billy Wagner, Voice of Reason?

June 18, 2008

Now that a day or so has passed on the firing of Willie Randolph and the extra media scrutiny of how it went down, I’m glad to see a few players comment on the situation. The best quote comes from Billy Wagner: “As a team, we hadn’t lived up to expectations,” said Wagner , whose […]
