Mets Morning Laziness: Mainstream Media discovers Gsellman, Reyes could steal bases!

Good morning!

Well, the Mainstream Media has discovered Gsellman and are writing articles about how he is going to be the 5th starter.  YOU THINK?  Like seriously, YOU THINK?   Lugo has been off in a dopey tournament, Colon is in Atlanta, Wheeler has been out forever and has like a 39 innings cap*.  Who the hell did you think was the 5th starter?  No, like seriously, who did you think was the 5th starter? Thanks newspaper guy.

(* actual inning cap may be exaggerated low)

Wait until newspaper guys find out Jose Reyes is the 3B.   They did however find out that Reyes Could Be A Stolen Bases Threat.  I am not linking to that either.

This lame obvious space filling stuff drives me nuts.  It adds nothing.



New food at Citi Field.  

Tim Tebow’s Fireflies have a cool giveaway having nothing to do with Tim.



Today: 1pm vs Astros SNY

Saturday: 1pm at Braves, use the MLB for Braves radio


And that’s it.  Nothing happening this spring.  The 5 starters and 8 positions were all decided last November whether the remaining beat knew it or not….so unless bullpen spots excite you, this is a spring of no news – but as we know in Queens, no news is good news.

Reader mail: what do I think of this Mets Budweiser can?

Well Peter, thanks for asking.

I don’t feel strongly about it. I don’t love the design, but I do appreciate that they tried to do something more interesting than slapping an NY on there.

I never really understood collector cans, or if people choose their beer because their favorite team is on the container, but if this is something you’d like to keep on your shelf, that’s cool by me!


Come for Tim Tebow, get this cool Columbia Fireflies giveaway

The Cola Flies or whatever we shorthand them as are giving away this snazzy item!   Plus Tim Tebow!

Mets new food items at Citi Field…sourced the hard way

If only there were blogs that talked about off-field Mets stuff.

Anyway, in such a world it would be awesome to get a press release with some photos, but since that world doesn’t exist (miss you Shannon Forde) we’ll do this the hard way.

Here’s some of the food offerings shared with The Elite Media.  Don’t’ forget Mets, I’ll be the one who gives a shit during the 2020 rebuild while this crew is watching Matt Harvey and The Yankees.


There’s probably more stuff but whatever Mets.
