Today marks two years since David Wright last played for the Mets.
Happy Harvey Day! Matt takes on the Rockies at 3pm!
SLACKISH REACTION: Vargas day, on the other hand, went as Vargas Day usually does. Mickey Hodges pitching guru’s Mets gave up X runs in a loss. Some sadist scheduled an 8am soccer game in Pennsylvania so I was up at 5 and ran out the door. Yuck.
Gary Sterling is content to make the HOF by mailing in the last part of his career. Here he is being lazy with to the track, to the wall its outta here – which really is the same thing as It is High, It is Far, It is Gone. At least this time we got some slight tweaks in the exact wordage.
I know we’ve all been brainwashed to think GKR can do no wrong, but Gary is getting lazy and the Gary/Ron booth is boring. I know this is an extremely unpopular opinion, but so was Murph was Good and so was Harvey Is Not The Next Seaver. Give it time, as I keep posting these you will come to admit maybe I am right.
The Mets wore these. Yawn.
The Rumble Ponies decided Rumble Ponies wasn’t stupid enough so they played as the Spiedies.
If you’re new, from time to time I explain why this is the Morning Laziness and what it’s for. Adam Rubin used to do a wonderful Morning Briefing and when that went away I started hunting for stuff on my own in the morning and thought I would compile it. Unlike the MB, mine is to give you stuff not to read in a section I call NOT LINKING. For example, there’s an an entire article about how it’s the two year anniversary of Wright playing. What else do you need? Nothing. So I just tell you, you get to be lazy and I save us both time. Most of what I don’t link to is from two blogs in particular that both have like 50 writers and they write Game Previews and such. They are collectively known as The Amazin’ Apple Insiderized Mets Blog Report, or the AIMBR most mornings. One of those blogs even calls their thing “Morning Briefing” because why even try to be different? Also in today’s NOT LINKING is a whole Tebow propaganda piece. Do you care? No you don’t. Just don’t read it.
Anyway, I’m up at 5 which is like those days you head to the airport. MP has learned that at this time of year the sun is up already, so it’s not that brutal. But I feel like everyone else in the world is sleeping in and hit the beach yesterday and I’m just logging miles in Dad’s Taxi.
Normally the Morning Laziness goes out as soon as I finish it, it’s so early this morning that I actually scheduled this one to go up later. Very strange.
