"The Mets have more questions than Jewish kids at the Passover Seder."

Why I Love The Pedro Martinez Signing

Brian Costa of The Star-Ledger reports,
Six years ago, Jenrry Mejia did not own a glove. He did not have a bat. He had no use for a ball.

The tools of his trade were a brush, a piece of cloth and a container of shoe polish. That was all Mejia needed when he left his house in Santo Domingo each morning and walked 30 minutes to the downtown cafe where he made his living.

On an island where baseball is like a religion, Mejia preferred shining shoes for 300 pesos a day, the equivalent of about $8.

"I didn't like baseball," Mejia said. "I just wanted to make money."

Only after Mejia turned 15 did he begin playing baseball, a decision fueled not by some newfound love of the game but by the same ruthless pragmatism that caused him to eschew it in the first place.

When Pedro Martinez signed a four-year, $53 million contract with the Mets in late 2004, Mejia realized what so many other teenagers in the Dominican Republic already knew: For the talented and lucky few, baseball is a way out.

Now, at age 20, Mejia is the Mets' top-rated pitching prospect and one of the most talked about players of this spring training. His cut fastball has baffled hitters and prompted manager Jerry Manuel to campaign for Mejia to be on the Opening Day roster. He has drawn comparisons to Dwight Gooden and Mariano Rivera.

Spring Training Win Way More Important Than Silly "World Series"

Monday, March 8, 2010

According to awesomely free Philly Metro, a ninth-inning rally by Ex-Met Wilson Valdez exacts "some measure of revenge" for the Yankees beating them at that whole "world championship" thing last fall. I guess one micron counts as "some measure."

Says Star-Pitcher and Recipient of the Game-Ball, Roy Halladay, "It was so exciting that Charlie Manuel almost didn't fall asleep during the rally."

Omar Wants The Prince?

Monday, March 1, 2010

According to Ken Rosenthal on Twitter, "Mets GM Omar Minaya called Canadian-born Brewers GM Doug Melvin to congratulate him on Canada's gold medal in ice hockey."


According to the Internet - a friend of mine knows the Web personally - Fielder's contract expires after the 2010 season, since he signed a 2-year, $18 million extension with the Brewers after the 2008 season. The Brewers do have rights to the Vegatable-Eating 1st Baseman for the 2011 season.
