R.I.P. BOB FELLER

Bob Feller passed away yesterday at the age of 92. Of course we all know that Feller was one of the greatest players to ever pitch a baseball, and if you didn’t,  don’t worry he’d tell you. The man lived a full life as a baseball player and a baseball entrepreneur, selling what else but Bob Feller.

What does sadden me about Feller’s death is he is one of the last of his greatest generation, who put down their bats, balls and gloves to do something much nobler, volunteering to serve his country by joining the military during war time. No two words get thrown around so cavalierly in sports like “hero” and “Warrior” for athletes who really do nothing but compete in an athletic completion, which cheapen those words. Bob Feller was a hero and a Warrior and he earned both those descriptions the hard way.

As usual Joe Posanaski has all the right words about Bob Feller, so take some time out today and read this post by Joe Pos.

ANOTHER UNINSPIRING POST

The dog days of summer look to be going out with a bang in NYC as we will be in the grips of another heat wave just to top off one of the hottest summers in NYC history and for Mets fans, it’s just more month of uninspiring baseball before we get to see what changes will be made in Flushing.

Seeing that Johan Santana spots an 8.03 ERA in the first inning of his starts, maybe on his days to pitch, the strategy should be reversed, have the closer pitch the first inning then let Santana work innings 2-8.

Congratulations to Wally Backman (future manager of the NY Mets) and his Brooklyn Cyclones on clinching the McNamara Division of the NY-PENN League.

Why do I have a feeling my football season is going to suck as bad as my baseball season.

Go get em Rapid Robert, at 91 Bob Feller is still tough as nails get well soon

That’s about it, Mets blogging ain’t as much fun as it used to be

For your listening pleasure, The Soft Parade
