In case you don’t follow Major League baseball, the New York Mets have a pitcher named Matt Harvey. He’s been something of a sensation this year. The Mets are 7-2 in games he starts and 9-21 in all other games. That’s not a misprint. Lots of teams have excellent young pitchers, so to truly understand why Matt Harvey is a borderline Messiah, you must first understand the psyche of your average Met fan…
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a pretty big Mets fan, and make sure that’s known on DAPS. You should also note that over the past five years, it’s been pretty crappy out there for a Met fan. That’s why the fine people at scraps have created an be-all-end-all solution.
I’ve been updating you guys on the progress of The7Line’s “12 Months of Orange and Blue” calendar since June. Finally, this Saturday night 12/3/11 (tomorrow), the Queens based T-Shirt operation is having their big release party over at McFaddens (one of our favorite Manhattan watering holes) starting at 9pm.
This past week, I’ve been following the “Don’t Trade Reyes” soap opera being talked about everywhere. Now this is a New York Mets centric blog, but if you’ve ever worked hard at anything you’ll be able to relate.
Over the weekend it was announced that Terry Collins would become the manager of the New York Mets for the next two years. The general reaction from fans in New York has been mixed at best, the jokesters over at the Apple have cut together this little video of fans reacting to the breaking news.
I honestly don’t know how to feel. This could be pretty damn spiffy. Then again, when I think pro-sports I don’t immediately think of The Strokes so I guess that might have something to do with everything.
Earlier today (April 8th, 2008) Me, Fellow DAPS staffer Dave, and our friend Chris were very excited to be heading to the final home opener of the New York Mets at Shea Stadium.
