Rising from the Ashes...My Blog - But More Importantly, The METS!

It's been ages since I sat down, opened this web site and started writing about my favorite baseball team.

The last few years, I didn't have much to be jazzed about the happenings in the Flushing Zip Code, and, quite frankly, 2014 was the first time I did not go to one Mets game. At. All. Yeah, it surprised me too.  Probably the first break in action since the previous millenium.  Remaining a true fan, I watched at least one inning of every game since 2006, with a few exceptions due to travel.

I bleed blue and orange.  Always have. Always will.

Well, I like what I see with our Metropolitans.  And, yes, there is renewed hope.  Harvey looks like he's coming back, and will have a heck of a lot more strength and oomph than the Harvey that Ralph Kramden had to face.  DeGrom was a complete and pleasant surprise and watching him in spring training, it was good enough to realize he is the real deal.  That nice ROY trophy will be a springboard to better things.

Down on the farm, the prospects appear to be good, and with a few additions, like Michael Cuddyer, the long term signing of Lagares and a rejuvenation for David Wright, there  is a lot of hope.

Oh, and a victory on Opening Day against the onpapertoughWashingtonNationals.

Here's hoping the 2015 will replicate 1986.

Hoping for a Harbinger!
