    Let's Win A Championship

    Let's Win A Championship

    Often when a team wins a championship some players just seem to do the unexpected or maybe just play over their head. Sometimes we pick up pieces at the trade deadline or claim a player off waivers. The 1969 and the 1986 Mets were very much like that. Those players that seemed to add a spark, get the big hit, or played like a champion for just that one year. In this episode I talk about those players from yesteryear and discuss who will be the players this year that could to go above and beyond and do the unexpected. With our lineup and with some surprise performances I believe that this team can win a championship.

    The Good Old Days

    The Good Old Days

    At 65 I can't help but think back to what I call the good old days; the days of single admission doubleheaders and general admission seating at times for as low as $1.25. The food was cheap, the players were friendly, and at times when you were at Shea you felt like you could almost touch your heroes. The players were part of your family. The sign man and banner day are no more. But, we all still love this team and rejoice when they win and can get sick when they lose. Here are a few things for you older Mets fans to think about and remember.Everybody has a story, and as a Mets we got a lot of them.  If you would like to share your thoughts and memories click on the link below.

    How To Ruin A Career

    How To Ruin A Career

    Carlos Beltran may have been the best centerfielder in Mets history. He routinely played between 140 and 160 games per season. He was a five tool player. He gets remembered for getting called out on strikes in the last game of the 2006 championship series against the Cardinals. Well now he has something else to be remembered for. He was mentioned in the Manfred report regarding the Houston Astros sign stealing scandal. But more and more information keeps coming out that he was the brains behind the operation and really almost bullied some players when they told him it wasn't a good idea. He could have been The Mets manager, but now his reputation is tarnished. Sadly, we all know he didn't have to do it.

    Another Wilponzi Scheme

    Another Wilponzi Scheme

    It's almost incomprehensible that a team would sell controlling interest of their baseball team and expect to have decision making power and control going forward. How long do you wait for the owner of a house to move out after you purchased it from them? I think it's 60 days. Commissioner Manfred needs to get involved and take over this team or force a sale. Quite frankly I am sick of Fred and Jeff and think they need to be put out to pasture. They not only have trouble drafting, signing, trading, and hiring, now they don't even know how to sell a team.

    Let Us Play

    Let Us Play

    Kids today spend more time watching baseball and playing video games then they do playing the game. Oh, many kids are in leagues and play organized sport but how much time do kids spend outside playing without adult supervision. Baseball is one of the games that teaches kids how to get along, have productive conflict, become resilient, and most of all how to solve problems. It also helps kids manage bullying behavior and how to stand up for themselves. The main objective that all kids should have is to have fun. Often times too much adult supervision can interfere with and at times prevent the joy of just plain old playing. Be sure to check out my podcast Anti Bullying 101 for more information on this important topic.

    Sound Bites Are Killers

    Sound Bites Are Killers

    In my last podcast I stated that The Mets don't draft, trade, sign, or hire well. A short 40 second sound bite was posted on facebook which seemed to draw the ire of some Mets fans. In this episode I explain what happens when a team continues to make mistakes in the above mentioned areas. If all you want is to make the playoffs your in good shape. But, if you want to win a championship you have to build your team wisely. Listen in. I left a link for anyone to message me, and I would love to have some guests on the show to talk baseball.
