I have homework to do so this will be fast. First of all, the pic at the top is my new FAVORITE picture in the world. I want to thank schmifty for finding it. Can they get any cuter? Also this is a nice article thingy about British baseball players and Mike Nickeas is mentioned in it. Marc Anthony and J-lo were at Carlos Beltran's birthday party. It also looks like the Mets might not play tonight and if there was a doubleheader I could go to tomorrow I would be the happiest girl in the world. I should turn the Backstreet Boys off and do my homework now.
Let's Go Mets!
THIS is for you mandachan!

Grady Sizemore's consecutive games played streak came to an end today. He twisted his ankle yesterday and I know what that feels like. Mine probably wasn't as bad but it hurts. I don't fault him for sitting out. I am just upset the streak is over.

If you watch iCarly you would understand that. The truth is, I was not really confused I was worried. About Grady that is. His Indians literally JUST won on a walk off single by Victor Martinez. Grady scored the winning run but that almost didn't happen. After running to second base Grady turned an ankle and the trainer for the Indians had to come out. Grady convinced them that he was okay and after doing a couple of sprints he looked okay as well. I am glad he is healthy and now Brian Schneider needs to come back before he loses his job to Gustavo Molina. And no, he is NOT related to the other Molinas and it is not like he could win Brian's job. Anyways, I am glad Grady is fine after that moment of worry.

I wish I could do that
(i copied and pasted it)
I like this little story and am VERY glad that Brian and Ryan (cutie!) are a part of the Mets. Now they will be able to be a part of a new stadium and be on a winning team. I never expected Ryan to play so well and Brian is really a fighter. Multiple people have reported that his arm was completely black&blue and he took another foul off of his hand in last nights nice win. Ryan has contributed more than anybody can imagine and I would like to note that he has a rocket for an arm. He also has hit lefties as well as anybody when nobody said he would be able to. I am a fan of both of these players and when I originally was unaware of how this trade would work out, now I am glad it happened.
OK, so, maybe that wasn't so quick...
Let's Go Mets!

I am happy for him but the Mets have made me not so happy and that is why I am not writing about them. Last night my "boyfriend" went 1-for-3 with 2 runs a double and 2 RBI. Mike Nickeas was a key part of the game according to THIS article. Maybe he will get called up if Raul Casanova continues to make the pitching staff look like 3rd graders and the Mets give him back to the soap opera he came from. I mean CASANOVA, what?! And Ramon Castro played in his FIRST game yesterday, I think, so he still needs time. Mike has stepped it up and I would be the happiest girl in the world if Nickeas was called up. Even if he sits in the dugout the entire time.

The first part is that Mike Nickeas went 0-for-3 in the Zephyrs' 6-2 win over Omaha and his batting average dropped to .200. Well, he has played 3 days in a row so he must have been tired.
Saturday, April 19, 2008
I mean the Zephyrs' staff. Mike Nickeas didn't start in the 5-2 loss to Iowa. He did pinch hit and go 1-for-1 and is now batting .250. It is a good start and as I said yesterday he is learning how to hit this pitching. Anyway, I just like to see his name in the box score.
Billy Wagner had the line of the night. Referring to the booing from the Citizens Bank Park fans as he entered from the bullpen, the closer quipped:
“When I ran in, I thought (Scott) Schoeneweis was with me.”
“Funny guy,” Schoeneweis lightheartedly replied. “It’s when you get booed by the home fans it’s not natural.”
Schoeneweis said fans were taunting him all night by calling him “David Hasselhoff.” Not sure there’s a resemblance, but whatever.

First of all, I am very glad the Mets pulled out of the game last night with a win but that is not what this post is about.

Gmail alerts really come in handy. By having a Mike Nickeas alert I just found THIS article. Love it. I am glad somebody other than me is writing about him and I know he has potential. I saw him at Spring Training and he amazed me. What also amazes me is that I have seen pictures of him catching Johan in the bullpen in PSL. The Mets have GOT to believe in him if they gave him that task. It may just be a Spring bullpen session but they have to have good catchers for that.

What a game last night! The Mets really seemed like they cared. I cannot get over how well Mike Pelfrey has pitched this season! He had his stuff last night and has gained every bit of his confidence back. Who said he didn't deserve to make the team? I know I never did! Also, David had 5 RBI and another homer! He is starting to really get locked in and hit his pitches. At one point in the game a shot of the dugout was shown and Figgy was smiling. Just acting as if he were a fan in the stands. I love that! It felt like the Mets of old last night and I want it to stay like that. It is a good feeling and the Mets can win when they play like that. Reyes was on. So was Carlos (both!). Everybody helped out and Duaner came back and left off where he finished in 2006. And the idea of batting Church 2nd worked out and I give all my respect to Willie for obviously knowing what he was doing. I can't wait until 2night!

I knew this would be amusing and I guess Letterman warmed him up for his big game against the Nats. When my mom picked me up from school she said David was very funny and when I asked which one she said both. I am glad I saw this because I missed it the first time he was on. David (Wright) is so cute and funny and amusing in this and I love him!
Now you are probably wondering what confubbled means. It means confused. You are also probably wondering what makes me confubbled. Well look see:

The reason I don't want to post this is because it does not allow me to see my "boyfriend" when I open the page. But anyway...

Mike Nickeas played last night. Sad to say he went 0-5 and does not have a hit in two games this season. Come on Mikey! The good news from the game is the Zephyrs won 9-0 and he was the catcher so he had to have helped some way. I am proud of him for catching and calling the pitches in a shutout.

It is impossible to imagine the joy Nelson Figueroa is feeling right now and was feeling last night. I mean, what would you feel like if you got your first Major League win in 5 years AND it came for your favorite team growing up? We have all probably heard his story. And if not HERE it is. If you want experience I say he is your guy.
Friday, April 11, 2008
Note: I am sure everybody has read enough about the Mets win last night and I have nothing to say except that this was WAY overdue, so this has nothing to do with the Mets and/or baseball.
Thursday, April 10, 2008
There is so much I could say about the game last night. Let me begin with Mike Pelfrey. He pitched VERY well last night and although he only went five innings, he showed why he is here. His pitch count was up and he could probably gone longer if the batters didn't foul off so many pitches. I am really happy for him. (And he was really cute in the interview with Kevin during the game after he pitched!)

David Wright has a sandwich. I can't wait until I get to try it. David is too cute to miss out on this one. He is really doing more with the media lately, if you want to call this the media. I am glad because I miss him doing stuff off the field. He has seemed like the only person that has not changed who they are since last September. He always works hard and he has started to work harder but he didn't go and say he wasn't going to have as much fu, like Jose Reyes. He has also taken on a "captain like" role on this team. Even if he says he doesn't want it I think he should be captain and hope one day it will happen. Mainly, I hope this team gets back on track before May (or next week).

According to this post at this blog David will be on Letterman again. Maybe this time I will remember to record it. I am glad he is doing media appearances again because he took time off in the winter to work out and things need to get back to normal.
Xavier Nady has had a VERY AMAZING week. And just to continue from yesterday, he was named player of the week for the National League.

I cannot believe the week he has had and since the Mets didn't have a good weekend he helped me get through it. I am so glad baseball is back now I just wish it would warm up around here. I went to the Yankee game today and it is FREEZING!
Let's Go Mets!
My boyfriend played today for the first time this season!
(I know, I have a problem)

It is so nice to have baseball back and for the Mets to finally win. (Hopefully we will be seeing more of that). It was very nice to see David do well. Even though I didn't actually see it because I have play rehearsal at school 'till 6. Just to know that the Mets get a fresh start is reassuring. Watching Johan pitch is pure joy. He was all I could have hoped he would be and more. Now lets hope he does that for the rest of the season and things should work out very well. It was also nice to see the bullpen pitch well with the exception of Matt Wise, but i am confident he will have a good season.
