Mets Need Help

This season was the Mets until they took a steep nose dive with injuries, no team chemistry and players under performing. They need help and they need it fast.

The Yankees mean while are neck-and-neck with the Red Sox for first place in the AL East. This scribe is surprised but way to go.

Been on hiatus as I vacation and write my book, which takes time, time and more time. The book is slowly, and I stress, slowly coming along. 

Until then, see ya at the park!

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th to all and what a great day to attend a ball game — especially in New York. A lot of good games going on and the New York weather is finally beautiful.

Inspirational Quote
“Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game. I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood. I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people.” — Steve Busby
Until then, see ya at the park!

No Joy in the Bronx

Maybe the Yankees should have stayed in “The House that Ruth Built” across the street? This, by all means, might be Ruth’s jinx on the Yankees moving to a new stadium. Maybe the Yankees should’ve kept the other “Joe” at the helm? The new “Joe” I give until the middle of the season, then he’s bye-bye.

The Yankees were horrible yesterday as the Cleveland Indians sent the balls flying all over in a 22-4 all-out-blitz. I would hold my head down in disgust. With their star-talent and payroll, they better turn it around fast. Right now it’s not looking good.

Swisher’s Debut

Maybe the Yankees need Nick Swisher to pitch more games. He’s not the only position player to pitch for the Yankees. Here’s a list of the other Yankees who pitched in:

  • 2009 Nick Swisher
  • 1997 Wade Boggs
  • 1996 Mike Aldrete
  • 1991 Alvaro Espinoza
  • 1987 Rick Cerone
  • 1968 Gene Michael
  • 1968 Rocky Colavito

Sheffield’s 500th

Gary Sheffield, who probably thought his career was over, finally made it to the 500th home run club. Here’s a look at the active players with 500 or more:

  • Ken Griffey Jr., 613
  • Alex Rodriguez 553
  • Jim Thome 543
  • Manny Ramirez 527

Happy Birthday MLBlogs

I’ve been here since 2005 and it has been great. From covering the first WBC to appearing on “Under the Lights” it has been the toast of the town. From the “Red Sox Chick” to my radio co-host Carl “The Cabbie” to “A” to “The Baseball Collector” it was, and still is, our little “Dead Poets Society.” I read “A’s” column this morning, who writes “Dispatches from Red Sox Teen Nation” soon to be just “Red Sox Nation,” about the memories.

MLBlogs is the home of baseball, America’s Pastime, and the home of many. I started at MLBlogs to promote my book and, in turn, Baseball Talk radio was born, appearances on MLB Radio, writing assignments, interview for stories, etc. It didn’t hurt my career, but promote it. For that, I’m so grateful. I’ll be here until they take me out in a wheelchair. Mark, Captain-my-Captain, thank you!!!!!

Until then, see you at the MLBlogs party!
