Metscellaneous

While the Mets were off yesterday they still made some news albeit bad news that Tim Brydak is suffering from torn capsule in his left shoulder, same injury that Johan Santana and Chris Young suffered, and is done for the season and maybe for good.

A real shame that Brydak has gone down injury and this one is devastating when you factor in his age (38) and he doesn’t have a contract for 2013. I would not count Brydak out from returning to pitching after rehabbing this injury but I doubt he’s come back to the Mets if he did.

If you are in the Tarrytown area today between 12 Noon and 1:30 PM, head over to the Citi Bank branch at 2 South Broadway to meet John Franco and get a handshake, picture and an autograph.

Ike Davis and country music performer Lee Brice will join in a benefit for Solving Kids Cancer at the City Winery on September 9th at 7 PM. City Winery is located at 155 Varick St in Manhattan.  Along with the concert there will be an open bar, raffles and an auction.

The Mets will unveil a new concession tonight at Citi Field, Pat LaFrieda’s Steak Sandwich. The sandwich is made with 100 % Black Angus Filet Mignon, Monterey Jack cheese, caramelized onions, special au jus sauce on a toasted baguette. The only thing this sandwich doesn’t have is power and the abilty to play right field. The sandwich will be sold at the Taste of the City food court on the field level behind centerfield.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE, RIGHT ON!

My post on my first visit to $iti Field is getting flamed on the BBTF by some of the Mets fans on board. Who knew there was such an upscale clientele amongst the Primates?  Some blue blood named The District Attorney is killing me for attacking for taking the Skill Sets to task for catering to the upper crust. I’m pretty sure this District Attorney guy is a Wilpon relative (David Howard?)

 

 

Add another former Staten Island Highlander to the Mets fold as Willy Mo Pena joins Omir Santos (anyone remember Jason Anderson? He was the first SI Highlander to reach the big leagues so they had a  night for him at the Richmond County Ballpark to retire his number, the night  of the ceremony guess what team Anderson played for? Yup, the Metsies )  as SI Highlander alumni to join the Mets.

 

No problem here with signing WMP as he is a right handed bat that hits lefties pretty well, (.277/.339/.457) and his coming back from shoulder surgery. It’s a minor league deal so no big woop.

 

Maybe just maybe the Skill Sets are finally listening to the fan base. It seems all the negative press from the Doc Tags The Wall Incident has made the team realize that they may have something here allowing former Mets greats to give an autograph and have it displayed around $iti Field. Check out The Mets Police who has details of how the Skill Sets could right the wrong of the lack of Mets-centrisity in $iti Field.
