This Week In SNY, Featuring Terry Collins' Bad Habit, SNY's Spelling Issues, And Ike Davis' Fan Club

Much like the Mets, TWISNY stood pat at the trade deadline. We decided any roster changes would upset the clubhouse chemistry too much. You be the judge if that was a wise choice.

Monday, July 16th

SNY broadcast a Buffalo Bisons game and caught this Bison texting in the dugout. Josh Satin? He looks rather comfortable, wouldn't you say? Like he's just begging to get jacked up by Wally Backman:

Several young Mets pitchers were spotted in the stands charting pitches. See if you can determine who they are:

Let's check in with Kevin! For months, Kevin has had his eye on the shiny watch in the window at Macy's. However, his parents refused to buy it for him, instead insisting that he save up his allowance money and work odd jobs around the neighborhood in order to pay for it. Mowing lawns, walking dogs, lemonade stands, etc. Well he finally saved up enough cash and made the purchase:

Congrats Kevin!

Speaking of Kevin, celebrity Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld continues to follow SNY's #1 sideline reporter on Twitter. Other Mets-centric accounts that Seinfeld follows include:

1. Adam Rubin
2. Mark Simon
3. Bill Maher (recently purchased a minority interest in the team)
4. Matt Harvey

Jerry loves the Mets.

Let's check in with SNY alum Chris Cotter! We caught an afternoon edition of Sportscenter starring the original Kevin:

Serious Cotter is serious. Cotter previously worked for Fox Business Channel in between his stints with SNY and ESPN. We have generally fond memories of his time as sideline reporter for the Mets and we wish him the best.

Sunday, July 22nd

The Mets lost 8-3 in extra innings to the Dodgers on this day. So we think that Terry Collins picked the right day to start sniffing magic markers:

It was nice to see that veteran infielder Adam Kennedy is still in the big leagues. Even better was the revelation that he has become reigning Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw:

Thursday, July 26th

Kevin interviewed Matt Harvey's father, Ed Harvey, during the rookie fireballer's debut:

The interview was unremarkable, except for a bit of information Kevin tweeted upon completing the Q&A:

Relax guy! A potentially ugly situation was defused when Kevin's bodyguard stepped in. You may have seen him around the ballpark:

It's time for Nitpicking With TWISNY! Back in May, SNY misspelled Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt's last name:

Apparently, no lessons were learned and SNY continued to omit the letter "c" from poor Goldschmidt's name. Here is the Diamondbacks' lineup card from last Thursday:

Here is Goldschmidt's first plate appearance. A "c" on his jersey but not SNY's graphic:

And another from Friday:

At least SNY remembered the letter "m." C'mon, use that spellcheck!

This has been Nitpicking With TWISNY.

Friday, July 27th

Ike Davis has Arizona roots, so a fan club of locals assembled Friday night behind home plate at Chase Field to cheer Ike on. And also to bro out with good laughs and cold beer. Here they are at attention for an Ike plate appearance:

The group exploded after Ike hit a home run his first time up (he would hit two more during the game). This guy likes Ike in 2012:

Ike had a huge weekend in Arizona. Maybe the Mets can fly his fun-loving fan club around to cheer him on for the rest of the season?

That's all for now. A big thanks this week once again goes to Rob Castellano and Chris McShane. Send any tips or suggestions to ThisWeekInSNY@gmail.com. You will be credited if we run the material.
