What A Win! Mets on National TV today.

It was hard to find a Mets fan who was optimistic about their chances last night, sending Livan Hernandez up to the hill to face Tim Lincecum. And for sure, Livan did not have the stuff while the reigning Cy Young champ did. However, late inning heroics by the Mets sent them on to their second consecutive win against the San Francisco Treats.

Santana vs. Randy Johnson should give the FOX Network a nice ratings boost. A lot of sports fans will have their TV sets on today to watch the horse race, but apart from the three minutes around race time, I'm thinking baseball will dominate those sets. What do I know though. Eiter way, it's a good day to be a transplanted Mets fan, with our ace on National TV.

Lets Go Mets!

Transplanted Ex-Mets on the All Star Ballot

Voting for the All Star Game has started - so lets make sure we have enough transplanted ex-Mets on the field as possible in St. Louis this summer.
1B Mike Jacobs
SS Marco Scutaro
3B Melvin Mora
OF Carlos Gomez, Xavier Nady, Jason Bay

Did I miss anyone in the AL?

For the NL, you may be inclined to vote all Mets, or all ex-Mets, but whatever you do you just HAVE to vote in Lastings Milledge, for the Natinals/Expos!
If you want to vote for some ex-Mets instead of some current Mets, here are your options:

2B Anderson Hernandez or Kaz Matsui
C Jesus Flores
OF Mike Cameron, Lastings Milledge

Don't Bury Me, I Ain't Dead Yet

I am back from a much needed North Carolina vacation - I transplanted myself back to where I had once been transplanted to, and the Mets didn't lose a game the whole time I was gone!  Apparently I am a jinx.  The Mets have lost both times I've seen them in person, at the home opener and again on April 19th.  My next scheduled visit with teh Mets is in Washington D.C. where I'll see them take on the Expos.  Remember, Natinals fans, until you finish over .500, you're still the Expos.  Or at least the Natinals.
For the record, I still have not heard back from mr. Dave Howard about my obstructed view from the Promenade, but my pal Tubby reports that TV sets have been installed at the food court above the Jackie Robinson rotunda. Hopefully the outfield walls color is the next modification.
