Tuesday Night, Citi Field: Your New York Mets

Posted on 17 August 2015 (0)

#happyplace #mets

The New York Mets are playing enjoyable baseball again. The New York Mets are in a pennant race. These two sentences seem improbable, given the nuclear winter Mets fans have endured these past few years, but yet, here we are, with the Mets at the top of the division while the Nationals are on the West Coast facing the likes of Kershaw, Greinke, and Bumgardner, and doing… not so well. The old concept of Triple Happiness (Mets win, Phillies lose, Braves lose) has changed.

My latest novel: A WHOLE NEW BALLGAME

Posted on 08 February 2014 (0)

sm_awnb_cover Some of you know that I started writing about baseball back in 2006. I started the blog on Blogger, for heaven’s sake, because it was something I was doing so that I didn’t have to send out mass emails to people. I didn’t know that I’d love doing it and I didn’t know that I’d build an audience. I didn’t know that I’d do it pretty much nonstop for 6 years, that I’d be one of the few women blogging about the Mets, and still the only one officially recognized by the team. I didn’t know I’d end up sitting in the press box and reporting on games. It’s still kind of surreal for someone who didn’t get to grow up with baseball.

MLB’s “Land of Hope And Dreams” spot

Posted on 29 August 2012 (2)

The edit of the song RUINS the song completely. It chops it up and ruins the momentum and grace. Plus the need to literally put trains in the beginning of the song… well, it’s typical MLB to do something so lowest common denominator, but I can’t believe that Bruce approved it.

It is one way to get your music in front of a new audience.

The worst part is seeing a MLB logo superimposed on Roy Bittan’s piano and a Springsteen song turned into a commercial for the Yankees.

I don’t usually put my baseball writing on this site, but it’s not every day you’re lucky enough to witness the Mets first no-hitter in 50 years.

BLAME BELTRAN, OR: A TALE OF THE JOHAN SANTANA NO-HITTER.
