I’m still around, but when I’ve had the time to write, I haven’t had much of an inclination.
Aside from Matt Harvey and David Wright, there’s precious little reason to watch the Mets these days. Sure, they’ll surprise you in a good way every so often – but they will find new ways to frustrate more often than not. Even Mother Nature doesn’t seem to want to see them play.
I have not added any new Mets autographs to my collection lately, though I will be able to add the card Andrew Brown signed for me via mail during spring training to my Mets binder now. But I have picked up a few more signed cards at various non-major league games. One of the highlights was getting Adam Greenberg to sign his 2013 Topps baseball card last week.
And I had fun in Trenton last weekend watching the Portland Sea Dogs beat the Trenton Thunder with my friend Bart. I’d have to double check my scorecards, but I think it was the first time I ever saw the Sea Dogs win.
Here are some photos from the game:
Circumstances permitting, I plan to go to the Mets’ Banner Day game next weekend. So look for photos from the pre-game banner parade next Sunday or Monday.
And since it will be his 82nd birthday by the time most of you read this, let me show you a cool Willie Mays baseball card that I got last week.
