"Nice Game Pretty Boy" Bobblehead

The Brooklyn Cyclones have taken their already awesome promotions to another level. On July 5th they will host a “Salute To Seinfeld” night at the ballpark.

On July 5, 1989, the “Seinfeld Chronicles” aired on NBC for the first time and 25 years later, the Cyclones will celebrate the “show about nothing” that has left an indellible mark on popular culture. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” Bobblehead.  In addition, there will be non-stop Seinfeld themed entertainment from beginning to end. Yada yada yada…you’ll have an awesome night.

Spartan Race Photos

I meant to update the blog yesterday with photos from the race, but I was dead! The race was awesome! It incorporated all parts of the ballpark - parking lot, warning track, clubhouse, Pepsi Porch, ramps and stairs. Our team all stuck together, which was a great motivator and made it that much more fun. I obviously wasn’t running with a camera so here are some post race shots I snapped:

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Atlanta Braves: April 8-10

The Good: Kyle Farnsworth and the revamped bullpen. It seems like the Nationals series was years ago with how well the bullpen has pitched lately. The Mets pen wasn’t able to get out of their own way then, walking batters, throwing wild pitches and turning close games into blowouts. In Atlanta, the Mets bullpen threw nine scoreless innings. No performance was more surprising than Farnsworth. After not being able to get out of the mid-80s during Spring Training and being cut, he has returned to the Mets because of injuries and is throwing gas. His fastball has not dipped below 90mph.

The Bad: I’m having a very very tough time finding anything wrong with this series. The Mets won two of three and were shut down by Ervin Santana for 8 innings before mounting a one-run short comeback against Craig Kimbrel in their only loss. So let’s classify the Braves pyrotechnic team as “bad”. Stay tuned for the photo of the series.

The Ugly: The Mets first base situation. Ike Davis? Lucas Duda? Josh Satin? The three-headed monster of no production, overrated and back-up. It’s time to pick one and let it ride. Things will only get murkier this weekend when the designated hitter is used in Anaheim.

Photo Of The Series: The Braves pyrotechnic team had a stray firework create something we should never see in this country. Luckily the flag was flame-retardant and was out in a few seconds. The flag was replaced before the next game.
