Great News For Out-Of Market / Transplanted Mets Fans!
Starting in 2014, Fox Saturday Baseball games will no longer be blacked out of MLB.tv.
I watch all the games via ROKU or AppleTV, so this is great news. I may never go back to cable or satellite again.
When the streaming is bad, it is really, really frustrating, but when it works it works great, and it works most of the time. In 2012 the quality was much better than in years past and the service was much more consistent.

Meet Me At Mets Police
By the way, The team that plays in D.C. will finish above .500 this season, so I won't be able to call them The Expos anymore, but I cn ilmake fun of them for sealing their logo from Walgreens.

The Mets have historically had awesome offseasons, leading to ridiculously high-expectations, where everyone dons their rose-colored glasses going into the season. We fans have been let down time and time again. This time it's different and so one of two things will happen:
The Mets will exceed all of our expectations and 2010 will be a most magical year, indeed.
Everything will fall apart, and Minaya and Manuel will be fired and teh roster turned upside down, ushering in a new era of Mets greatness (?led by Bobby Valentine?)!!
That is all. See you at the ballpark!!

Meet Me At The Apple!
I love Bobby Ojeda - Transplanted ex Mets Update
Q: Coming out of spring training with Carlos Beltran out and Jose Reyes questionable for Opening Day, do you think the first month of this season is about survival for the Mets?
A: You can't have that attitude. You heard that ad nauseum last year. "Let's hold on until so and so comes back." It drove me nuts. On any given team, you are going to have people injured. The attitude has to be that you are going to go out and stick it to people. We are going to remember what happened last year and teams are going to pay. "Just survive until Beltran and Reyes get healthy" is a loser attitude.
Exactly! That is a direct shot at Jerry Manuel, and it is completely deserved. We hear all the time from the Wilpons that the Mets performance has been 'unacceptable', but Jerry M sent a consistent message to the contrary all season long.

Transplanted ex-Mets update: Dwight Gooden arrested for DUI
FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. (AP)—Former Major League Baseball star Dwight Gooden has been charged in New Jersey with driving under the influence of drugs and leaving the scene of an accident.
Franklin Lakes police Capt. Joseph Seltenrich says the 45-year-old former pitcher for the New York Mets and Yankees had a child in his vehicle at the time of the two-vehicle crash around 9 a.m. Tuesday. It wasn’t clear whose child it was.
If this isn't the saddest story you'll hear all day I feel bad for you.
