Question for the gambling fools among us:

If you were given 100-to-1 odds today on the Mets to win the World Series this year, how much would you bet? What I mean is, what's it worth to you? I'm sure that many of us would bet a dollar....

I'm posting this picture just because we haven't seen it lately, and because I'm rocking my Voltron T-shirt today. Here's the story. Let's go Mets!

When the Babe Was A-Rod

Good story on Slate about Babe Ruth and the media.

Clemens to Be Indicted for Perjury

It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

A Barehanded Grasp

This is a personal story by a friend of mine. It's good reading for a Monday off night in August. Take the 10 minutes, it's worth it.

In Real Estate, an Atypical Power Player

"From the ashes of a baseball career, Mo Vaughn has built a successful "afterlife" rehabbing low-income housing." Nice story.

Child seen drinking beer at Phillies game

"The video shows the boy with a plastic beer bottle in his right hand, drinking from the bottle. He appears to be between three and four years old, and he is wearing a white Phillies home jersey."

Awesome brawl game video from the 1980s

The Padres and Braves provide some serious entertainment here. And I love how skinny everyone was back then.

What they're putting on the scoreboard these days in Minnesota

16

How cool is this: "From the limestone on the dugout roof to the gate handles shaped like the state of Minnesota to the scoreboard that updates the pitcher’s walks plus hits per inning pitched after every play, Target Field fits their character."

The Mets Fanwalk of Shame

"[W]hen [the Mets] actually manage to get something right and do something cool, it has to be countered by something dumb and ham-fisted. In this case, it's an easily fixable error in the plaque dedicated to the Mets' thrilling, come-from-behind win in game 7 of the 1986 World Series. ... But sadly, that's not the only mistake on these plaques. Just take a look at these completely un-Photoshopped examples of other plaque oopsies!"

AAOP: Just get Pujols

Just get Pujols.  And Utley, Mauer, Crawford, Holliday, Halladay, and Lincecum.  And Cliff Lee. Just get them, and then we can win the World Series!

"The Overmanager: Why the New York Yankees' Joe Girardi is too smart for his own good." Worth a read.

Lenny Dykstra files Chapter 11

"Dykstra, 46, filed a petition on July 7 with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Central District of California claiming no more than $50,000 of assets and between $10 million and $50 million of liabilities." Yikes.

Those hideous days and nights made the franchise so lovable, so human, so flawed. Mets fans used to get it, but I am not sure they do nowadays. All that cable swag has raised expectations, gone to their heads. They think like Yankees fans, for goodness’ sakes.

Gentlemen: Do not feed the trolls!

This thread makes my eyes bleed. Make fun of the post if you want, mark the comments "troll" where required, and move on. Engaging a troll who can't even create a proper title for his "post" does little for the site. Let's get back to some real discussions.
