Ronnie’s Fired Up, Terry Gonna Terry, Let’s Go To The Tebow Show, Remembering Anthony Young

The Mets were back to their losing ways in Miami last night dropping a 6-3 game to the Marlins. I don’t like doing game recaps because you can get that shit anywhere. So I’ll just go over shit that stuck out to me from another chapter in the book of awfulness that the 2017 season has become. Continue reading

If It’s Another Rebuild, Mets Have To Sell High on deGrom

Last week, after getting absolutely crushed in a four game series against the Dodgers, Buster Olney tweeted that the Mets would be entering the seller’s market and were open for business. OK, that makes sense. The team has been decimated by injuries all season and things don’t look to be taking much of a turn anytime soon. If you can get back a few pieces for some players on the last year of their contracts, then go out and get what you can.

Then came a report out of nowhere that I don’t think anybody had expected to hear: the Astros had called asking about the availability of Jacob deGrom. Continue reading

For Mets It’s Bad Judgment, Bad Luck, Bad Results

During Spring Training, I would have never believed that I’d be sitting here in June already writing off the season as a failure and looking toward the future…again.

As Mets fans, it’s something that we’re conditioned to: the gloom and doom and the constant peering over the horizon hoping to see the glimmer of better days ahead, but this time, it was supposed to be different. We were supposed to be in the middle of a new golden age of Mets baseball. Instead, we’re back to “same, old Mets”.

Ep. 53: “Going Out Of Business”

Dead man walking. You’ve done it now. You’ve gone and made a big mistake. I can’t allow for you to think you can just walk away. So turn around and face the piper you’re gonna pay.  ‘Cause the end is now. This is gonna be your judgment day. A cheap shot, that’s the way you play the game. I was blindsided, things will never, ever be the same. Nice guys, it’s said they always finish last. But badasses, always kicking assholes’ ass. You’re gonna pay, you’re gonna pay. There’s no forgiveness this time. You’re gonna pay, you’re gonna pay. It’s my business, your mind. You’re gonna pay, you’re gonna pay. I’m burning these ones to the ground. You’re gonna pay, you’re gonna pay. I’m gonna bring you down. You’re gonna pay, you’re gonna pay. You’re gonna pay, you’re gonna pay.

Daily Cartoon: BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, E. 18: “Beware the Gray Ghost”

It’s been a while, but I figured this was a good time to jump back into cartoon reviews. This weekend we lost Adam West who had many credits to his name, but is – obviously – best known for portraying Bruce Wayne/Batman in the 1960s TV series. For decades, the show has lived on in syndication and generations of people have all been thrilled by the campy fun of West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin.

Personally, I loved the 60s Batman series and when they recently released the animated BATMAN: RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS movie last year, I was hyped. It was done in the same tone as the original series and featured West, Ward and Julie Newmar (Catwoman) all reprising their famous roles some half-century after the fact.

Twenty-five years ago, however, there was a different Batman tribute to Adam West and it came in an episode of Batman: The Animated Series which was a huge deal on FOX in 1992. The series itself is terrific, still holds up and can be streamed on Amazon Prime if you feel inclined to give it a watch, but the eighteenth episode in particular is notable for a certain guest star: Adam West.
