I HATE TO WISH TIME AWAY, BUT I CAN’T WAIT FOR OPENING DAY!

The Brooklyn Met Fan says we should not rush to judgment on Dwight Gooden’s latest arrest for DWI, BMF says that the story of what really happened will come out but Gooden is listening to attorney’s and not making a statement as of yet. As I posted in the comments section of BMF’s site, as most readers here know, I’m a big Gooden fan and having met him a few times he was just a great guy but when you drive while intoxicated I have a huge problem with you.

In much better news, Jose Reyes is back in St. Lonesome and it seems just his presences in the locker room has amped up the team. What Jerry Manuel has to watch for is Reyes trying to get two weeks of lost time into two days. Reyes is adamant about being in the Opening Day lineup, we all hope he is.

Mike Silva has posted a story on the old Mayor’s Trophy games between the Mets and Yankees which I never remember being a big deal.

Josh Levitt of Jorge Says No fame has started up another site, MLBfreeagency.com the site as you’d imagine will focus on current and up coming free agents and all around good baseball talk. It’s well worth your while to check it out and bookmark the site.

Johnny Maestro, one of he great Rock and Rollers of the 60’s first with The Crest’s (16 Candles) and then with the Brooklyn Bridge (The Worst That Could Happen “Girl, I heard your getting married/heard your getting married/you know that’s not my scene” )

Whose music was a stable of NYC, especially Brooklyn, died yesterday at the age of 70. R.I.P. Johnny

    thank you Michael for the heads up

  3. I totally missed the Dwight Gooden era so have no personal opinion of him. However, it was 8:15 in the morning!

    Remember this banner from one Mayor’s Trohpy game: Yogi Berra drinks Bosco. (He used to do Yoo-Hoo commercials).

  4. I have seen the occassional oldies show, I am still a big doo-wop listener (I know, I know I was not around during its hey day), and you would hear some of those artists and feel bad when they missed notes, but Mr. Maestro, never did. He sang as well even up to a few years ago as he ever did. His was a powerful voice, and will be missed.

    One of the great voices from the 50’s – 60’s. Right up there with Jackie Wilson, Roy Orbison, Levi Stubbs and yes, Jay Black.

  6. Michael, I agree with you on the voices…of course, I know folks who have dealt with Mr. Black, who is actually being played on cable radio oldies channel as I type this…he is not the nicest of folks…but that does not take away from his voice…that is a tough note he holds at the end of Cara Mia…
