So there’s nothing going on and I have a meeting. Fortunately my buddy Hayes @googlinggod handed in a guest post! He even went the extra step of proving URLs for the videos. No mention of Murph?
Hat Club has these Minneapolis Millers caps…
And as you can see the way the lettering is approached is not all that different than the N and Y on a Mets cap.
I know TTSG likes to mess around with cap designs, even making this M cap
Maybe he could come up with something that meets the middle?
Holy cow, Keith’s prep is even worse than I had feared.
Sports Business Daily has “A Day In The Life With SNY Keith Hernandez” which I strongly encourage you to read. About a week ago I had written that Keith sounded awfully lazy in the booth, well thanks to SBD we have insight into Keith’s day.
The lines in italics below are from the SBD article and I present without comment until after.
7am: “I get the N.Y. Post and the Wall Street Journal.”
“9:30-noon: I won’t do any game prep at home.”
2pm: “I will listen to MIKE FRANCESA when he’s doing his baseball roundup.”
“4:00-5:30pm: When I get to the ballpark I begin my preparation for the game. I’m basically getting my scorecard ready, the statistics I like to look at.”
Then at 5:30 there’s a meeting with the SNY Producer who goes over what they are going to talk about.
So to recap, Keith’s TV prep includes two newspapers, Mike Francesa, and getting a scorecard ready. No talking to players, no attending the pressers, no calls, no checking in with the people/broadcasters who work for the opponents, no working at home. Newspapers and Mike Francesa.
Newspapers and Mike Francesa.
Newspapers. And Mike Francesa.
Thanks to Peter for sending this one my way!
The Cyclones are crushing it again. Seinclones Night is coming!
You know it’s a slow news day when people are actually clicking on me reporting that I was blocked by Todd Frazier who has an OPS of .685
SLACKISH REACTION: I won’t keep you. There’s nothing. I even deep dived and looked to to see if terms like Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Mickey Callaway, #MetsFansUnited or David Wright would turn up anything. There’s nothing. Yesterday was one of the quietest days I can remember.
NOT LNKING: silly Wally Backman to replace Mickey manager articles based on one random tweet.
Overwatch League fans love the Wilpons. They put together winning teams!
The Wilpon-owned New York Excelsior have been a juggernaut during the inaugural season of the Overwatch League, and people around the league are praising the Wilpons for their management of the video game club. Their roster, comprised mostly of South Korean players, is the top seed entering the playoffs and a heavy favorite to win the league’s first Grand Finals in Brooklyn on July 27 and 28.
