Viagra In Spain

Viagra message board 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, viagra message board which is why this past Saturday was just the kind of day I needed.

Viagra message board 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. Viagra message board 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, viagra message board real honest to goodness die hard Mets fans. Viagra message board 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, viagra message board the complete version of Meet the Mets, viagra message board with butcher, viagra message board the baker and the people on the street. Viagra message board  I get goose bumps just typing that. Viagra message board No doubt though, viagra message board Mets fans are the most underappreciate fan base in sports.

Viagra message board Did you really think the break up between the Mets and R.A. Viagra message board Dickey was going to amicable? Let me just put my cards on the table right here, viagra message board if you have been a frequent visitor to this site you know how much I respect and admire R.A. Viagra message board Dickey. Viagra message board 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. Viagra message board  But as much of a fan as I am of Dickey’s, viagra message board this trade that sends him and Josh Thole and a prospect  to Toronto for Travis d’Arnuad , viagra message board Noah Syndergaard, viagra message board John Buck and a prospect is one that was absolutely necessary in the getting the Mets back to relevancy .

Viagra message board Sandy Alderson does not act on emotion; he acts on facts, viagra message board on research from both statistical analytical and scouting departments. Viagra message board 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. Viagra message board 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. Viagra message board Both R.A. Viagra message board Dickey and Carlos Beltran, viagra message board 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.

Viagra message board Back to the nastiness that has surfaced since this deal was deemed all but complete. Viagra message board Mets management, viagra message board as has been a tradition around here since the days of M.Donald Scumbag, viagra message board have found ways to try to embarrass players who are leaving but end up embarrassing themselves. Viagra message board  I have no doubt that there was jealousy amongst those who locker with Dickey in the Mets clubhouse. Viagra message board I’ve been told by people I trust that was the case. Viagra message board To me it says more about the people who are doing the bad mouthing than it does about Dickey. Viagra message board Think about the typical ballplayer in a locker room. Viagra message board Most of them are into playing video games, viagra message board hunting, viagra message board golf, viagra message board 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. Viagra message board Dickey, viagra message board who not only reads books but writes them, viagra message board a best seller no less. Viagra message board He also raises awareness to causes like sexual abuse of children of which he was a victim, viagra message board going into schools to read and donate books to underprivileged kids. Viagra message board 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, viagra message board to the point where he was honored with the highest award a pitcher can received, viagra message board the CY Young. Viagra message board 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. Viagra message board Where did I learn this? At the Mets holiday party because unlike Ken Davidoff, viagra message board I WAS THERE!!!!! And heard Dickey talk of his holiday plan. Viagra message board While I’m on the topic of that holiday party, viagra message board let me set the record straight. Viagra message board Both Dickey and Ike Davis were helpers to John Franco who played Santa Claus. Viagra message board The media was closed off from the party proceedings by a black fabric partition. Viagra message board When Dickey and Ike were done entertaining the kids, viagra message board they were brought in to the media area. Viagra message board 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. Viagra message board  

Viagra message board 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, viagra message board September and October for the last four seasons. Viagra message board There are not a lot of players with intestinal fortitude in that Mets clubhouse. Viagra message board It could be that some of those who fail to rise up and contribute dislike Dickey because he makes them look bad. Viagra message board How would you feel if you were sitting the bench due to fatigue, viagra message board 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?

Viagra message board I do have hope that this trade will start a spiral of ridding the team of petulant posers, viagra message board  pie throwers and the charter members of the bitch and moan club. Viagra message board The Mets are losing a stand-up guy in R.A. Viagra message board Dickey but that doesn’t mean we have to stop rooting for him. Viagra message board The Blue Jays come to the South Bronx for a four game set from April 25-April 28, viagra message board 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. Viagra message board Oh and it will piss off the Highlanders and their fans as well.
