Mets loser Jeff McNeil is playing golf instead of working out and watching game films

Man if Matt Harvey did this….

Jeff McNeil, one of the losers on the Mets that did not make the 8 game playoffs is working on his golf game, seeing as he has free time this month.

His third season with the New York Mets in the books, Jeff McNeil now turns his attention to his favorite sport: golf.

McNeil, who grew up in Santa Barbara before his family moved to Nipomo, is returning to town this weekend to play in the 61st Santa Barbara City Golf Championship at the par-70 Santa Barbara Golf Club.

Kevin Withnell, the head pro at SBGC, learned from a friend that McNeil has been playing at Cypress Ridge in San Luis Obispo.

“According to the guy I know, he hits the ball a ton,” Withnell said of McNeil.  (via Noozhawk.com)

PREACH Howie Rose: baseball games start and end too late!

Again for baseball….

What time did that game end last night?  What are we even doing.

But it’s stupid when I say it and I’m just cranky and negative, so let me yield my time to Howie Rose who will make the same points but now you will accept them.

Also it’s good to see that two time champion and winner of the MVP Keith Hernandez is also NOT watching baseball.

Stop Being Willfully Stupid – Yahoo article about Mets and Trevor Bauer

I see a headline from Yahoo (how’s that Mets site coming guys?) about how Trevor Bauer’s agent is going to let Bauer know that Mets fans are interested in him.

  1.  Like that has anything to do with anything
  2. Bauer has been openly flirting with teams and their fanbases on twitter – including the Yankees….as he should.  The Yankees will likely pay him more, plus they aren’t losers (although they haven’t sniffed a World Series since the Aughts so they are starting to be losers.)

So what’s the idea here…..the phone rings….”Hey Trevor, it’s me, Ari Gold…look the Mets fans really ant you so I’m gonna get a deal done, ok bye.”

Stupid stupid stupid.  As Khan says….

Speaking of Star Trek – I would like to congratulate them.  They have gotten me all the way to the point that a new season of Discovery came out and I didn’t watch, I didn’t try to watch, I didn’t read a recap, I didn’t watch a Youtube video about it.  I just don’t care.

Which is kind of how I feel about the Mets now that Dom Smith has embraced the spreading virus of vulgarity.

 

New documentary covers time Mets were losers in 2000 World Series

Featuring New Interviews With Roger Clemens, Mike Piazza, Joe Torre And Bobby Valentine Reminiscing On One Of The Greatest Weeks In New York Sports History

LOS ANGELES – For one week in October 2000, baseball was the only topic on the minds of New Yorkers. The Yankees and the Mets squared off in the World Series for the first time and only time in history.

“When New York Was One: The Yankees, The Mets & The 2000 Subway Series,” a new documentary from FOX Sports Films in association with Major League Baseball, looks nostalgically at the legendary matchup between these two teams. The film remembers this epic series through the lens of New York’s citizens – one year before the 9/11 tragedy – and highlights a community forever-changed in the 20 years since, all the way to its unique present-day climate.

Directed by Emmy®-Award winner Aaron Cohen and produced by Patent Seven and Post Haste Creative, the film will debut on Thursday, October 15 following game 4 of the NLCS on FS1.

“The 2000 Subway Series was a great moment for New Yorkers and fans everywhere,” said Charlie Dixon, Executive Vice President of Content at FOX Sports. “This is a baseball documentary that doubles as an homage to the city and a moment in time, and it reminds us that sports can connect communities, even through fierce rivalry.”

Featuring new interviews filmed this summer with Yankees manager Joe Torre, Mets manager Bobby Valentine and key players from the series including Andy Pettitte, David Cone, Bernie Williams, Al Leiter, Edgardo Alfonzo and Todd Zeile, “When New York Was One” captures the emotion and drama that could be felt across every corner of Queens and the Bronx that week. Roger Clemens and Mike Piazza discuss their deep-seated rivalry and the bat throwing incident in game two of the series, their first face-off after Piazza was hit by a pitch Clemens threw earlier in the 2000 season.

“People like to say that sports is a distraction from real life, when many times it’s actually a reflection of what’s going on around us,” said Nick Trotta, Senior Director of Global Media, Programming and Licensing at MLB. “The story of the 2000 World Series and the events following it shows the power of baseball to define our relationships with each other and our teams, and ultimately unites us under the banner of the game.”
