As David Wright prepares to make his final appearance at the hot corner for the Mets today, I’d like to give one final, touching tribute to the Captain. . . . . . In a time where many star athletes are obnoxious, unprofessional, media-concerned divas; David Wright truly stood out as one of the few superstars who did things the right way. – David is the DEFINITION of what a professional athlete should be. Between his incredibly fundamental on-field play, amazing off the field work, loyalty to his team, dedication to baseball and unmatched leadership; David is exactly who...Read More
After seven weeks genuinely disconnected from the world of sports and social media, I’m finally all caught up and ready to return to the Instagram grind. But first though, I’d like to provide my reaction to the biggest headlines of Summer 2018. . . . NBA: Starting with the Awards, I was very disappointed to find out LeBron was robbed of MVP by Harden. I may work on a story later on voicing my take on the value of MVP awards in sports. Simmons was very deserving of ROY and I don’t want to hear the “he’s not a...Read More
Not often can a manager turn around the fate of an entire franchise. This past offseason the New York Mets closed the door on the Terry Collins era and penciled in former Indians Pitching Coach, Mickey Callaway, as their new manager. And let me tell you, as a long suffering Mets fan, this was by far one of the best moves they’ve made in such a long time only rivaled by the Yoenis Cespedes trade that fueled an eventual World Series run. For practically the past 55 years, the Mets have been plagued by bad luck, injuries, and poor...Read More
Being a Mets fan ain’t fun. From constant heartbreaks to horrible stretches of injuries, and of course, their trademark horrendous luck when it comes to pretty much anything – we can’t catch a break. And to make manners much worse, the franchise is run more poorly than maybe any other professional sports franchise around. For a quick background, following the infamous Bernie Madoff scandal (which the Mets owners, of course had to invest into) the Amazins’ lost an extremely large chunk of their salary, which now decades after, still leaves us with a very cheap approach to almost everything. Under the helm of the...Read More
It doesn’t matter what team you root for, what sport you like, even if your not a sports fan (well maybe that’s a stretch); you know the New York Mets can never catch a break when it comes to anything. As a die-hard Met fan for life, staying patient with this team even tops two of the other teams I root for in the Jets and Knicks, which have enough of their own problems on every aspect on and off the field (were talking to you, Phil…). But more importantly, this team has to get back on track, use...Read More
