I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but at the moment I’m sitting under roughly a foot of snow. That’s a slightly annoying amount, but after the way everyone around here and in the media was freaking out over the last few days, it seems like a coating. Anyway, what better way to [...]

So the regular season is a thing of the past. Now that MLB has separated the wheat from the chaff, let the post season begin. Actually before the post season proper can get underway, we have the little issue of the second Wild Card to contend with. That is what is going down today. The [...]
This post has been sitting in my To Do list for quite a while, and for that I apologize to all parties involved. A while back, Mark, from Mark’s Ephemera, had sent me an email explaining that he was a bit embarrassed to say that it’s taken so long for him to get some cards [...]
You know the story. You’re at Target and/or Walmart running errands and happen by the card aisle. Of course you can’t just walk by without just popping your head in to see what’s that haps. Then your pocket starts to heating up and before you know it, there’s a hole burning in that pocket. It’s [...]
So far, halfway through the 2012 season, I don’t think that anyone in their right minds could possible complain at where the Mets find themselves. After everyone expecting the Mets to be the rug of the N.L. East, and after a horribly dismal Spring Training, the team finds themselves with a 46-40 record and are [...]
Coming off of their World Series defeat to the Yankees, the Mets sent 2 players to the ASG in 2001, as well as a manager. Rick Reed made his second All-Star appearance that year. It’s crazy to think he had twice as many All-Star appearances as Edgardo Alfonzo, but hey, baseball’s a crazy sport. For [...]
Coming off of their 1986 World Championship, the Mets again sent 5 men to the 1987 All-Star Game. Davey Johnson was named the manager of the National League squad. That goes along with his 4 appearances as a player, 3 for the A.L. and once with the N.L. The Straw Man made his fourth straight [...]
The Mets 1974 contribution to the All-Star squad was a crew that you might not have expected. Yogi Berra mad his first and only appearance at the All-Star game as a manager, thanks to leading the team to the World Series the year before. That goes with his 15 appearances as a player. Jerry Grote [...]
