Three Links For Thursday, March 7
- In Port St. Lucie with Team Venezuela yesterday, free agent reliever Francisco Rodriguez told MLB.com’s Christina De Nicola that he’d like a chance to redeem himself with the Mets. I hope Sandy Alderson isn’t moved, because there are already enough guys in the Mets’ bullpen that I don’t trust to close games.
- At The Real Dirty Mets Blog, Daniel Stein-Sayles asks, “Wait… Hope Doesn’t Spring Eternal?“
- And from Monday, Ceetar considers the Mets owner as a Game of Thrones king. I see more similarities between the Wilpons and the Starks than the either of the houses mentioned in Ceetar’s post… but then again, I don’t view the Starks as the “heroes” of A Song of Fire and Ice.
With the late start to the NHL season this year, I got back into hockey for the first time in about 15 years. Amazingly enough, a few guys I remember are still playing. I wrote to a few guys on the local teams to see if I could get autographs, which is a challenge because it looks like the Islanders are the only one of the three teams that passes fan mail on to the players. I was able to find home addresses for a couple of the Devils, which is the team I’m actually rooting for. I’ve yet to hear from any of the Rangers, and I don’t expect to.
Former Rutgers Scarlet Knights football stars Jawan Jamison and Khaseem Greene will meet New Jersey football fans at RedZone in Sayreville on Thursday, March 14. The two players are expected to be chosen in this year’s NFL Draft. Autographs are $20, or $30 for both players.
