Some quotes from R.A. Dickey on The Dan Patrick Show

  1. On the Mets: "I love being a Met." If he was traded, he "would be sad about that" because he has "enjoyed being a Met."
  2. On the ongoing extension and/or trade discussions: "I would explore my options if I was Sandy Alderson . . . I get that." Also said that the conversations with the team are "not acrimonious."
  3. On whether it will be tough pitching for the Mets in 2013 without a contract extension: "I think time will tell. I anticipate it will be a tough situation."
  4. On whether he would ever demand a trade: "That's a good question. I don't think I'm there yet." He later said that demanding a trade is "just not my style."
  5. Randos: "Lucas Duda's got a pretty good knuckleball." During the interview, his youngest son was "running around at [his] feet, eating Teddy Grahams. That's the life of a Cy Young winner."

CC Sabathia and Spiderman

Just go look now. You can thank me later, at least if you're able to stop watching. It's that amazing.

Ken Davidoff Makes Sense

A little explanation of his feeling on the "illegality" argument set forth by some PED moralists/Hall of Fame voters, and a small tidbit on the Dickey/Kilimanjaro non-story.

It's Always Gut Check Time!

centerpede101 got a job at ESPN.com. Good work, buddy.

Cole Hamels looks like he could use a hug after giving up that home run to Val Pascucci. EDIT: Here's a link to my original screengrab, in case anyone has any use for it.

LOL Hamels

If the linked photo isn't ripe for some MS Paint action, I don't know what is.

Maybe next spring when we have our media workshop, Fred can come and sit in.

Jon Matlack (eventually) begat David Wright

Cool chart from The Platoon Advantage that shows how the Mets' #4 draft pick in 1967 eventually turned into David Wright.

I knew about Bobby Bonilla . . .

. . . I was not, however, aware that "Bret Saberhagen, who left [the Mets] in 1995 [] is owed $250,000 annually through 2029." Wowie zowie.

Ah-ha. This explains everything.

Now we know why the Mets have won the last two games.

Murray Chass: He Can't, He Won't, and He Don't Stop.

Murray's one-man crusade against Mike Piazza and bacne continues unabated.

As inspired by Pat Andriola during the 12th inning of last night/this morning's ballgame.

Weird Gary Carter Video (UPDATED).

Seems like the guy who took this was attempting to provoke Carter and, for me, he ends up looking like the bigger a-hole. Just a weird little clip. UPDATE: OK, the guy who made this video really, REALLY doesn't like Gary Carter.

So Beltran will start Thursday, play center field and hit cleanup. And Pagan will start in right.

The Song Is Working.

David Wright is now less than 23,000 votes behind Placido Polanco in All-Star voting with just two days to go. Vote here.

Lenny Dykstra Keeps Getting Worse (allegedly).

Philadelphia Phillies legend Lenny Dykstra is alleged to have accepted $250,000 in stock from a company in exchange for his "buy" recommendation and access to Jim Cramer.

R.A. Dickey and his gloves.

I, for one, was not aware that the knuckleballer on the staff was responsible for carrying the special catcher's mitt.

Whoa. Too much?

Mets fan has tattoos of 35 player names, in addition to other Mets-related designs.

Jason Phillips is a Smooth Operator

Via Ted Berg, this is a very cool story about the former Met/current Mariners bullpen catcher, and how he met his future wife.

Cool non-Mets reading.

Here's a story about the corked bats that Pete Rose used in 1985 while chasing the all-time hits record, and the people who now own some of those bats.

Is anyone close to Binghamton?

If so, someone needs to get on top of this event.

Dayn Perry Is Opposed to Pitcher Wins

Nice to see another writer in the mainstream acknowledge that pitcher W/L is a worthless measurement. Also, some of the comments are gold, Jerry, gold!
