Easy on the Duda love, Mets fans
Other news from PSL...uh-oh, danger Will Robinson! David Wright is not playing in today's intra-squad game due to "stiffness in his left side". This could be nothing, as DW promises us it is. Or, we all know what strained obliques do to players, right, Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan?
TC says Parnell is not a lock for the bullpen, that Parnell will have to "earn it". I will be dropping extra in the collection basket tonight, hoping that Bobby does not "earn it" and has an opportunity to enjoy genuine Buffalo wings this summer.
On more hat tip to The Kranepool Society for the post on the passing of Davey Jones. Steve points out that the Monkees were, in their day, top-notch entertainers and links to some videos. Yes, in the context of today, they may seem "inadequate". But they were MTV before there was MTV. RIP, Davey. While I'm at it, please read A Gal for All Seasons's "Married to the Mets" posts. They say it all. Good work, Coop. And finally, Studious Metsimus has a great series on Mets one-year wonders, and Bret Saberhagen's high school picture. That alone is worth the read!
The above mentioned folks and I will be on the bridge (Shea, not Whitestone) on opening day, about 12 or so. Let me know if you'd like to join the fun and toast the new season with us!
