Happy 11-11-11 Day
November 11th, 2011 by slangon

In honor of today being 11/11/11, I thought I’d show 11 guys who have sported number 11 for throughout the years for the Mets. Ed Bouchee was the original #11 for the Metropolitains. He only ended up lasting half the season, though. The remained of 1962, number 11 was worn by this guy. Classic line […]

Is it Too Early to Call This a Must-Win?
April 5th, 2011 by slangon

I know it’s only 4 games into the season, but I’m really feeling like it is. The Mets face their first major hurdle of the season when they start a 3 game series against the juggernaut Phillies in Philadelphia tonight. Fortunately, they’ll be missing Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt, but they will be facing Cole […]

…this is not the picture I would like to have on it. I mean, I know he’s just a rookie and maybe he’s not this highest rated prospect, but did you really have to use this particular picture for his first baseball card? Obviously, judging by his body language, he just screwed up. Maybe he […]

No More Days Until And Oh, baseball, how I’ve missed you.

Things Certainly Are Getting Interesting
October 22nd, 2010 by slangon

A day or two ago, both teams that I hate were looking at a 3-1 deficit in their respective Championship Series, and both teams have managed to pull themselves up by the bootstraps to force at least a game 6. Wednesday CC Sabathia and the Yanks did it against the Rangers, and last night Doc […]

Let’s Go Rangers
October 15th, 2010 by slangon

Now that I’m a full-blown Texas Rangers fan (until they either win the World Series or get knocked out of the playoffs) I thought I’d support the boys in the first game of the ALCS against the evil empire Yankees tonight by sharing some cards from my extensive Texas Rangers collection. Go Rangers! Gums.

Roll Out the Trading Barrel
January 9th, 2010 by slangon

For Christmas, Wifey had gotten me a tin of 2009 Sweet Spot. Often times, when I break a box or blaster or whatever, I’ll search for similar breaks just to kind of compare my luck with that of others. When I searched for ’09 Sweet Spot tin, I came across Ed from Roll Out the […]
