Mets Morning Laziness: so where does the money for the Memorial Day caps go?

Slackish Reaction:  There was no game.   Pay attention.  And there was no news, aka The Rubin Effect.  (Adam would have hustled and found a story.) The rest of these guys put their feet up and took a lazy Monday.  Tonight the Mets try to maintain their one game lead in the loss column over the last place Braves.

Terry thinks Cespedes is gonna play tonight.  On a wet field. You’re either wrong or reckless Terry.

This is interesting….hope the MSM can find a storyline.


I’m looking forward to this one which could be massively entertaining if you are the sort of fellow who thinks the Mets should have kept Colon and gets annoyed when people say things like Next Seaver.



I continue my offer that I will happily share with my readers any information about what cause or causes are supported by Memorial Day caps and jerseys . I’d like to see a breakdown as I am sure this is for a good cause.   Also, here’s some words on what Memorial Day is and isn’t.  It ISN’T Be Vaguely Patriotic Day.


As for what we’re supporting, other than America F*ck Yeah, the press release says…

MLB will again donate its licensed uniform royalties that are connected to charitable initiatives. Proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen (Mother’s Day), Prostate Cancer Foundation (Father’s Day), Stand Up To Cancer (Mother’s Day and Father’s Day), and MLB Charities (Memorial Day and Independence Day) – used to support programs for military veterans and their families.

OK cool so I googled MLB Charities and found their info page

About Major League Baseball Charities

Major League Baseball Charities is a not-for-profit corporation that provides support to local, national and international tax- exempt organizations to directly conduct or sponsor activities for the promotion of good health, physical education, public safety, medical research, literacy, educational or charitable purposes.

In addition to supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), the Official Charity of Major League Baseball, MLB Charities provides support to a number of other national charitable initiatives, including the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the National Urban League and the Jackie Robinson Foundation.

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball pays all administrative expenses for MLB Charities.

OK all those sound like great causes….but where’s the part about military veterans and their families?   Mother’s Day goes to Komen, got it.  Father’s Day goes to a Prostate Cancer foundation, got it.

What’s the connection between Vauguely Patriotic Day Remembering Those Who Died In Service and these caps?  I’m sure some good is being done here by MLB Charities, I’d just like to learn more about it so I can share it with the readers.  Take credit MLB, MLB Charities and New Era…you’re helping the families of veterans, let’s tell the world how!


That’s all. Quiet morning, unless you wanna read nonsense about brining up Rosario and Smith.
