How soon we forget.

Wowzers, that flick came out the summer of '14! Feels like yesterday.

Re: Tick Tock Jeurys

They've also shortened the commercial breaks between innings by 20 seconds. That will automatically shorten each game by at least five minutes. And... As part of the shortened commercial breaks, pitchers can throw as many warm-up pitches as they want before the timer runs out, though they are no lo...

Re: Tick Tock Jeurys

Yup. I'm one of those that don't care about game time at all. If there were measures in place to shorten the work day, I'd be out picketing in support of it. But baseball games? Let's play forever. But that doesn't mean I don't realize that game times matter. Big difference between 2:40 and 3:20. T...

Re: batfrazierleadoff

Good contact with an uppercut swing, if not solid and launched into the air, has the ability to create more and sometimes wicked spin on a batted ball. Especially on hard hit liners and sharp ground balls.

Re: The 2018 Mets Outfield

Guys playing outside their usual assignments always makes a game fun and interesting and memorable, with the potential for unexpected heroism or expected disaster riding on every pitch. Reyes in center, Carter at third, d'Arnaud at second, old Rusty in the outfield, Hundley in the outfield. Emergen...

Re: Do Ye's Know Where Ye's Children Are?

I'm just damn tired of seeing L.J. Mazzilli stuck at AA. My goal is to live long enough to see him in a Met uniform, hopefully in his dad's old pants. I love this sentiment. But his dads old pants? Ewww. Unless they have been well kept and washed. And I guess he couldn't wear his dads old jersey. H...

Re: The 2018 Mets Outfield

He played center for an inning or two in a game in mid-May, but didn't get any chances. Then he didn't appear out there again until a stint in left in late August. First ball hit in his direction was a liner over his head, and he charged in, and it went for multiple bases. How do you recall things ...

Re: The 2018 Mets Outfield

That's what they've had all winter, man. They started the offseason with three once they removed Taijeron from the 40. They're playing fast and loose. If Reyes actually gets it down this year (they avoided using him there last year, and when they finally did, he was terrible), they will need him. I...

What year Mets Cake Card would you desire?
If you want it to include your pic it should be a Topps design that incorporates multiple images. Otherwise it'll just be a cake.

Offer expires at midnight.
