Transplanted ex-Mets Update

Mike Piazza fell just a double shy of hitting for the cycle for the first time in his career during the A's 8-5 win over the Chicago White Sox Thursday. Piazza also hit his first homer at McAfee Coliseum as an Athletic. He nearly got his double in the seventh inning, but was robbed by a diving catch by the Sox's Jerry Owens.

Roberto Hernandez became the 12th pitcher in major-league history to appear in 1,000 games when he entered last night's game in the ninth inning for the Dodgers.  He gave up two runs, but the Dodgers beat the Astros anyway, 6-2, backed by fellow ex-Met Jeff Kent's three doubles.

Mike Cameron hit his 15th homer of the season, a three-run shot, to kick off the Padres 11-9 win over Colorado.

Hi Mike,

Was just doing a search to see if there's anyway to listen to the Mets without going through
I came across your site and saw that you are stuck down in Greensboring. I guess technically that's still my official place of exile away from the Mets. However, I've been in South Korea and Mexico since early 2002 save for some months. I'm in Korea currently. When we had Seo I could at least see the Mets on TV every 4 days.

So, how is it for you in NC? What brought you to Greensboro? I lived there from 1995-2001, so I suffered through a large part of the Atlanta period (actually almost all of it as I moved to NC in 89). Also, The Greensboro Bats were a YANKEE affiliate for awhile. So it was the worst of all Baseball hells.

I usually have to post as anonymous. Blog post windows tend to appear in Korean and I can't figure out how to get them to work with my name, which is William by the way.
