  1. Congratulations. That was fast! It seemed like it was yesterday you told me that you were a senior in high school. Now you already have your Masters. I waited more than 10 years to pursue my Masters. All the best in your new job and career.
  2. Besides Jacob deGrom, the 2020 Mets are awful. I do like the new manager. He thinks outside the box and does not kowtow to players like Cespedes. Time to get ready for work. Have a great day, folks. Hope all is going well with the school, @RollerColt. Stay safe.
  3. Besides Gooden, Strawberry, Carter, and Hernandez, the Mets did not have star players. Dykstra, Backman, McReynolds, Sid, Mookie, Knight, etc were all average to above average players. Bobby Ojeda actually won the most games and had the best ERA that year. Loved Bobby O. I recall when he and two Indians teammates went on that boat trip. The two teammates died and he survived. I think one was called Tim Crews. I forgot the other.
  4. There are some Yankees fans here but they don't post comments in this thread. You should become friendly with Coltsfansince65. He is a loyal Yankees fan. How did you become a Yankees fan? I became a Mets fan as a teen around the time that they won their last World Series. I have been a fan since. I recall my young nephew in October or November of 2000 telling me that I should become a Yankees fan because the Mets lost to the Yankees in the World Series. I replied, "No way. I'm a Mets fan!" I taught him a lesson in loyalty.
  5. You have been a fan since you were a kid? I recall when you were posting here and you said you were in high school. I believe you were going to go to college. Did you finish? Time flies by. Enjoy your youth. I remember you're saying that you were from Indiana but would be moving (or had already moved) to Illinois. Now that you are moving to St. Louis, are you going to continue as a Cubs fan? All the best in your move.
  6. This is fantastic. Thank you for sharing. You must be around my age or maybe older. I don't believe I know Durham and Jodie Davis, but Van Slyke, McGee, Ziele, Benes, Coleman, etc are all guys I am very familiar with. The person who got me interested in baseball was a Cardinals fan. That was in the days of Ozzie Smith, Worrell, Daley, Jose DeLeon, Oquendo, Peña, Guerrero, McGee, etc. (Late 1980's) You mentioned Lankford. He played with Bernard Gilkey. I met Gilkey when he was a Met. This was at Spring Training in Florida. Back then, it was a lot easier to engage with players. I met many Mets players from 1996 through 1999 at Spring Training. I also met players on teams that the Mets played in Spring Training like Cal Ripken and Brady Anderson. It was great.
  7. Lol. They need the money for a lot more. They are still paying Bobby Bonilla. I hear that will end in 2035 or so. What a smart move by him. He has money coming to him well into his 60s. The Mets need to learn that free agency is not always the way to go. The Mets have been burned by almost every older high-priced free agent they have acquired. (Mo Vaugn, Jason Bay, Michael Cuddyer, so many more.)
  8. Did the extra innings start with a guy on second base? As I wrote before, I am not crazy about it.
  9. I know. I was joking. I did not realize basketball was still taking place. The Cubs are doing well. I hope the season will continue but Rob Manfred seemed to indicate that they may have to terminate the season. That would be terrible.
  10. Yes, I hear you but playing football has not killed them nor is there anything contagious about playing football that can directly harm the health of their families.
  11. ^^^ That is what Vikings fans wrote two days ago. Lol. I completely support players' decision to opt out for their safety as well as the safety of those around them. It is odd, however, that the Patriots have so many more players opting out than any other team.
  12. How do they determine exactly who is high-risk? To me, everyone on the OL and DL is high risk. Is Vikings Michael Pierce's opt-out in the high risk category? He said he has asthma, IIRC.
  13. The Mets bullpen is pretty bad too. Two of the 3 games the Mets have lost were games they were winning in the late innings, including one with 2 outs in the 9th with a one-run lead.
  14. What is a bubble? Is the NBA playing now? I thought their season starts in October or November?
  15. How are the Cardinals doing? @Jay Kirk, @Barry Sears I did not not realize that Michael Wacha is with the Mets. He is pitching tonight and has a 7-1 lead after 5 against the BoSox. Jay used to like Wacha.
  16. COVID-19 is creating lots of problems. I can't see how football will be played. Some football players (OL, DL) are at higher risk because of their weight. It is a mess.
  17. He is such a kind-hearted and generous human being. He is full of class. I would have loved him to play for the Vikings. He is definitely my kind of guy.
  18. Starting extra innings with a guy on 2nd reminds me of college football overtime. I don't like either one. Anyway, game over. Mets lose 5-3.
  19. Are you sure? Many people have predicted that the NL will adopt the DH. The Mets were one out from their second win. The closer blows the save. The Braves have scored 3 in the 8th. Lol. I guess I can go out now.
  20. Man, there are some terrible changes. The Mets are in extra innings. The 10th inning starts with a free runner on second. If the runner scores it is an unearned run against the pitcher. The Mets gave up the run. Braves lead 3-2.
