I CAN’T STAY LONG, I”M DOUBLE PARKED

Sorry for no posts this morning but it’s been a busy day. So busy that I forget all about the David Wright sit down with the Sports Bloviator. I caught the tail end of the sit down as I traveled back from Brooklyn and I guess you could say it was typical David Wright. All positives and nothing controversial.

It looks like it’s a foregone conclusion that Bengi Molina will be the Mets #1 catcher this coming season. Again this looks to be another move where Omar was told to sit in the corner as the way the Mets have made Molina sit and stew is very un-Mets like. Same with Carlos Delgado who I think the Mets brain trust only went to Puerto Rico to see just to get away from freezing cold weather in NYC. Think about it, if the Mets were strictly an Omar Minaya Production, Molina, Delgado and Joel Piniero would be celebrating their multi year deals by now. Looks like those days are over.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Art Rust Jr. who was sportstalk radio in this town back in the 1980’s. Rust hosted a three hour call in show on WABC and unlike WFAN he actually talked ALL sports. In fact I had called in to his show because a young Mark Messier came on to talk hockey and agreed to take calls from fans. Rust was a great baseball historian and a huge Highlander fan but his real passion was for The Sweet Science and he had all the big time boxers on his show.  R.I.P. Arthur George.

I’M SLOWLY TURNING INTO YOU

 Then something else came to mind

That was the mirror

It made everything clearer

That you’re more beautiful compelling and stronger

It didn’t take much longer

Just for me to realize I love all the little things

And the beauty that they’re gonna bring

I dig your little laugh and I’m lovin’ your quick wit

I even love it when you’re faking it

And it might sound a little strange for me to say to you

But I’m proud to be you

 

And I’m slowly turning into you

And I’m slowly turning into you

And I’m slowly turning into you

And I’m slowly turning into you

 

The more I see of $iti Field the more I’m coming around to the fact that this will be at least from a structural point, a baseball palace.  From looking at the pictures that Joe McDonald took while on a tour of the new ballpark the first thing that strikes me is the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. It is magnificent. I know there is alot of anti-Brooklyn Dodgers sentiment among Mets fans and the naming and the reproduction of the Ebbets Field rotunda of $iti Field has been debated as some segment of Mets fans feel the Mets should honor their own and other part of the fans base wants the New York Giants/Polo Ground element to be added and both sides make fine arguments but to bash the design of the ball park and to be upset that the rotunda is named after Jackie Robinson is ridiculous in my view. In fact I wanted the ball park named after Robinson but I know that is just a pipe dream.

 

Any way not just the rotunda is breath taking up the view from the section show that Mets fans will have that up close and personal feel and be right on top of the action. I also LOVE the forest green seats which will give the park that old time feel.

 

Maybe it’s the cold weather and wishing it was 80 degrees and sunny or maybe it’s the Rangers getting the ass handed to them last night by Les Habitants that has me getting antsy for spring training and then opening day at the new place. (We have to come up with a better name though as I’m still going to use $iti Field so if you have any suggestions for me pass them along through the comments or e-mail sinymets@aol.com )
