Despite my apparent sabbatical from the blog recently, I couldn’t miss the 4th Annual Condition: Poor St. Patricks Day Parade of Cards, once again led by the Grand Marshal, the Mets’ own “Irish Hammer” Daniel Murphy. So without further ado, let’s get to the wearin’ o’ the green. Grand Marshall Murphy, lead the way.
I’ve got to get this up before 4:10. Of course I had to leave right field for last. The Mets have had more right fielders in their history than any other position. Typical. Anyway… In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the New York Mets, I’ve been looking at the primary players at each position […]

So it’s finally here. I guess technically yesterday was the season opener, but really who cares about the defending world champs playing against their bitter rivals at one of the oldest ballparks in the country. SNORE!
