Baseball has not been in the Olympics since the 2008 games in Bejing but will be returning to the Olympic Games in Tokyo (which has been postponed due to the Coronavirus.)

No one teases their fan base quite like the Mets do. My first two articles for this site came earlier this year in March and April if my memory serves me correctly. It was a time of optimism, a time of hope, a “let’s see what happens” kind of thing with mild to moderate expectations. Needless to say, I was disappointed. But the Mets have reasons for some optimism.

Well, the All-Star festivities are over, with the AL winning for the seventh year in a row, 4-3, and Mets’ Pete Alonso going home the winner of the home run derby. Now as we head into the second half tonight with a makeup game between the Astros and Rangers, let’s hand out our midseason awards. Continue reading

16 miles. Two days. An amazing experience. The 2019 All-Star Game provided a great lineup of things to do for fans anywhere from 10 to 100… and even the youngsters got a thrill out of the mascots there! While I was not credentialed to go to this event (I hope my writing can get to the right people at some point), I had a great time experiencing the nation focusing on one city and one event. Cleveland had a couple years to prepare for this and they knocked it out of the park. Of course, not everyone was satisfied, but that’s not realistic. Let me tell you what I got out of this great event. Continue reading

The NL East is going about how you would expect it. The Nationals started out terribly but have gone back on track, while the Braves have been consistently leading the division for almost the entire year. The Phillies aren’t doing as well as many would have thought with how good they did in free agency, while the Mets are disappointing as usual. Wait, is there another team in this division? Oh right, the Marlins. They’re pretty bad, but honestly, they’re outperforming expectations due to young pitching that has been doing very well.

Sleep is the most thing to keep our bodies healthy, keeps our minds sharp. We all need it; unfortunately, a lot of us have trouble getting it. According to the Health Guide, we need at least seven to nine hours of sleep nightly. Currently, the average American gets 6.8 hours of sleep, according to Gallup. For many of us, it has to do with the trouble of falling asleep. A Consumer Report poll says 27% of Americans have difficulty sleeping, while 68% struggle with sleep at least once a week.

Not too long ago Dominic Smith was a first-round draft pick by the New York Mets. In 2013 the Mets selected him 11th overall. In six seasons in the minors, Dom slashed .296/.361/.426. He and the Mets both expected him to take over the first base job for the Mets on a daily basis. Then reality hit, Dom struggled, and the Mets were again left with a question mark for an everyday productive first baseman.

The Mets are a very interesting team. They find themselves in a division that is shaping up to be a four-team, very competitive race. GM Brodie Van Wagenen has put together a roster that can compete, whether the rest of the baseball universe believes it or not. Van Wagenen is the former co-founder of Creative Artists Agency. He helped negotiate deals for Robinson Cano with the Mariners and Yoenis Cespedes with the Mets among others. Trying to get away from their conventional approach, Van Wagenen added some new pieces to improve the Mets chances in 2019.
