Daily Cartoon! RICK & MORTY S.2,E.4: “Total Rickall”

Welcome to another special cartoon recap! Keeping things a bit more recent than normal today with one of my favorite current shows: Adult Swim’s RICK AND MORTY. I was admittedly late to the party on this show. I don’t watch a lot of “new” TV anymore unless a bunch of people tell me I need to jump on a bandwagon and this show certainly fell into that category. Once I got into it, though, I was fucking hooked. It’s terrific. And since I’m in the middle of rewatching Season 2 to get ready for the show’s big comeback next week, here I am writing about it.

If you’ve never seen it, the show is about Rick Sanchez, and old, drunk inventor/man of science and his grandson, Morty as they go on adventures throughout the galaxy and timelines and fucking whatever your mind can imagine. The two are also supplemented by the rest of the family, Morty’s parents Jerry (voiced by Chris Parnell) and Beth (Rick’s daughter (voiced by Sarah Chalke)) and his sister, Summer. Continue reading

Daily Cartoon! THE AVENGERS: EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES: S.2,E.13: “Along Came A Spider”

What’s up everybody? I haven’t done this since Adam West died, but I’ve done some baseball in between that I hope you’ve been enjoying. In the interest of keeping up with

current events, though, I thought it was high time to do another cartoon review to coincide with the new release of SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING. Spoiler, since there’s no podcast anymore, it’s good! I’d give it a…hmmm…quadruple main man! Four stars! It’s not a perfect movie, but I think they did about as good a job with re-introducing Spidey to fans since he’s been the odd man out during this entire MCU build.

Letting Murphy Leave Was The Correct Move…At The Time

When it’s time to make a decision, you have to do so in the moment. You certainly aren’t afforded the luxury of hindsight to see how things play out in the future before you choose your path.

Which is exactly why – in the moment – the Mets made the right decision to let now-perennial MVP candidate, Daniel Murphy leave as a free agent following their 2015 World Series run. Continue reading

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”.
