How much cialis Sorry for the lack of posting the last week but I had tons of work to handle and when I did find time to sit down and compose some thoughts on the New York Mets the news from Newtown Connecticut of the mass killings of little children and teachers at the Sandy Hook Elementary School unfolded and suddenly whatever Mets news that was out there was of no interest to me at all, how much cialis which is why this past Saturday was just the kind of day I needed.

How much cialis When I found out that Greg Prince who along with Jason Fry co-author the great Mets blog Faith and Fear in Flushing was having a get together at Foley’s NY to celebrate his joining the half century club (the more cranky middle aged Mets fans the better) and his new book The Happiest Recap I replied immediately that I would attend. How much cialis Not only was it the great tonic to keep my mind off the tragedy in Newtown but it reaffirmed my love for the NY Mets by being in a room jammed back with people of my faith, how much cialis real honest to goodness die hard Mets fans. How much cialis How devoted were the fans in attendance?  We saluted our beloved Mets and pledged our allegiance to the Orange and Blue by singing a rousing rendition of Meet the Mets, how much cialis the complete version of Meet the Mets, how much cialis with butcher, how much cialis the baker and the people on the street. How much cialis  I get goose bumps just typing that. How much cialis No doubt though, how much cialis Mets fans are the most underappreciate fan base in sports.

How much cialis Did you really think the break up between the Mets and R.A. How much cialis Dickey was going to amicable? Let me just put my cards on the table right here, how much cialis if you have been a frequent visitor to this site you know how much I respect and admire R.A. How much cialis Dickey. How much cialis I have been fortunate to meet Dickey and to interview him and I’ve found to be fascinating and a man of class and intellect that made spending time with him a fabulous experience. How much cialis  But as much of a fan as I am of Dickey’s, how much cialis this trade that sends him and Josh Thole and a prospect  to Toronto for Travis d’Arnuad , how much cialis Noah Syndergaard, how much cialis John Buck and a prospect is one that was absolutely necessary in the getting the Mets back to relevancy .

How much cialis Sandy Alderson does not act on emotion; he acts on facts, how much cialis on research from both statistical analytical and scouting departments. How much cialis He is here to rebuild the NY Mets organization that when he arrived was a shambles in all departments but especially from a player development side. How much cialis This will be the second time in his three years as Mets GM that he outlasted a desperate rival to pluck a top prospect for a player on the back nine of his career but one that could be the missing piece to their prosperity. How much cialis Both R.A. How much cialis Dickey and Carlos Beltran, how much cialis who as older players are much more useful to teams in contention than one under renovation (sounds better than rebuilding don’t you think?)  were flipped for two of the top prospects in all of baseball in Zack Wheeler and Travis d’Arnaud.  We now have a future.

How much cialis Back to the nastiness that has surfaced since this deal was deemed all but complete. How much cialis Mets management, how much cialis as has been a tradition around here since the days of M.Donald Scumbag, how much cialis have found ways to try to embarrass players who are leaving but end up embarrassing themselves. How much cialis  I have no doubt that there was jealousy amongst those who locker with Dickey in the Mets clubhouse. How much cialis I’ve been told by people I trust that was the case. How much cialis To me it says more about the people who are doing the bad mouthing than it does about Dickey. How much cialis Think about the typical ballplayer in a locker room. How much cialis Most of them are into playing video games, how much cialis hunting, how much cialis golf, how much cialis and playing loud hip-hop music while sitting naked pursuing the latest edition of Swank.  Then you have the anti-Neanderthal ballplayer in R.A. How much cialis Dickey, how much cialis who not only reads books but writes them, how much cialis a best seller no less. How much cialis He also raises awareness to causes like sexual abuse of children of which he was a victim, how much cialis going into schools to read and donate books to underprivileged kids. How much cialis Having a role in a movie that documents his journey from a #1 draft pick who struggled through the system and then reinvented himself and persevered when he was told time and time again to give it up but never gave in to the naysayers and worked harder every time he was doubted to become one of the very best of his craft, how much cialis to the point where he was honored with the highest award a pitcher can received, how much cialis the CY Young. How much cialis Oh and guess where Dickey will be right after Christmas? In India with his two daughters to make and distribute friendship bracelets for children who are abuse victims. How much cialis Where did I learn this? At the Mets holiday party because unlike Ken Davidoff, how much cialis I WAS THERE!!!!! And heard Dickey talk of his holiday plan. How much cialis While I’m on the topic of that holiday party, how much cialis let me set the record straight. How much cialis Both Dickey and Ike Davis were helpers to John Franco who played Santa Claus. How much cialis The media was closed off from the party proceedings by a black fabric partition. How much cialis When Dickey and Ike were done entertaining the kids, how much cialis they were brought in to the media area. How much cialis No children were harmed during the interview process and I doubt any of them cared about hearing about contract extensions as they enjoyed eating hot dogs and opening up presents.  Dickey was asked about the stalemate in negotiations and spoke candidly if the press and media can’t handle that then they deserve to be locked in a room with Jon Niese. How much cialis  

How much cialis So who would have a problem with people wanting to celebrate a man who has fought so much adversity and rose to the top of his profession? Maybe a bunch of players who fade every August, how much cialis September and October for the last four seasons. How much cialis There are not a lot of players with intestinal fortitude in that Mets clubhouse. How much cialis It could be that some of those who fail to rise up and contribute dislike Dickey because he makes them look bad. How much cialis How would you feel if you were sitting the bench due to fatigue, how much cialis while a 38 year old takes the mound with a torn stomach muscle that would need off season surgery and fights his way to lead his team to victory?

How much cialis I do have hope that this trade will start a spiral of ridding the team of petulant posers, how much cialis  pie throwers and the charter members of the bitch and moan club. How much cialis The Mets are losing a stand-up guy in R.A. How much cialis Dickey but that doesn’t mean we have to stop rooting for him. How much cialis The Blue Jays come to the South Bronx for a four game set from April 25-April 28, how much cialis how it would be great for Mets fans to show up if Dickey gets a start to express our appreciation for all he’s done as a Met on and off the field. How much cialis Oh and it will piss off the Highlanders and their fans as well.
