Wait, they made an Iron Man 3?
Captain Kirk is alive and well
This week in @Jay_HorwitzPR
I'm hot and cold with Mets PR Director Jay Horwitz, but I must admit he has been pretty humorous on Twitter since joining a couple months back. Here, he sheds some light on the spoils of winning the NL Pitcher of the Month award:
Going to some clubs tonight after game. Will be wearing Matt Harvey's Player of the Week watch.Could get lucky. twitter.com/Jay_HorwitzPR/…— Jay Horwitz (@Jay_HorwitzPR) May 3, 2013
Gonna be honest: I think that is the single coolest watch I've ever seen.
The last great Mets third baseman is coming back to Queens:
With his visit to Citi Tues.,I asked Robin Ventura a favor. Recreate his imitation of Mike Piazza sliding on a tarp at Yankee Stadium.(1of2)— Jay Horwitz (@Jay_HorwitzPR) May 4, 2013
You will never guess what his answer was. He smiled and said that if he did slide he might never get up. I took that as a gracious no.— Jay Horwitz (@Jay_HorwitzPR) May 4, 2013
Here's an interesting one:
After my 4000th game as a Mets pr director, my friends at Elias presented me with this great gift. Check out names. twitter.com/Jay_HorwitzPR/…— Jay Horwitz (@Jay_HorwitzPR) May 4, 2013
Like Mr. Horwitz says, look at some of those names. Now that's a lineup with some cachet. Remember when Brian Daubach played for the Mets? For the record, the Mets won this one by the score of 5 to 3 on the strength of six strong innings from Pedro and a 2-run triple from Jose; ah the good oldCatch days...
Nitpicking with TWIMT(?)
During last Friday's comeback win against Craig Kimbrel and the Braves:
THE CAPTAIN TIES IT!!! #DWIGHT. Mets with 4 HRs tonight.— New York Mets (@Mets) May 4, 2013
Dwight? Hmm, OK I think I know what they meant:
That John Denver's Really Full of Shit
"I thought the Rockies would be a little more Rockier than this!" Dumb and dumber quotes in full force the next 4 days..— Jeremy Hefner (@jeremy_hefner53) April 14, 2013
Dumb and Dumber references will always get a nod of approval as long as I'm in charge.
Then Mr. Alderson got in on the fun:
Coors Field at 3 PM. Bart Starr will pitch for Rockies tonight. We are calling up YA Tittle to pitch. twitter.com/MetsGM/status/…— Sandy Alderson (@MetsGM) April 15, 2013
Our own James Kannengeiser concurred with Turner's sentiments. As did Mets strength coach, Jim Malone (an endless source of motivational quotes):
...and Dillon Gee:
Man, @redturn2 wasn't kidding:
Minor League Bromance
Syndergaard on spring training:
"I kind of wish Nimmo was with us here in St. Lucie. I kind of miss him. He and I really hit it off. We were really good friends."
Aww. Budding minor league three-way bromance, y'all #steakforthree. Noah Syndergaard later tweeted this pic:
If you know what Michael Fulmer looks like, it's pretty hilarious that random uniform template man is a spitting image.
Chan Ho...if you are reading this...i hope you are well...today is the day i blasted two grandslams off of you...i am very lucky to face you— Fernando Tatís (@FernandoTatis17) April 23, 2013
Just hilarious. For the record the 38-year-old Tatis ended up back-peddling on the exact verbiage of this tweet after getting some flak from the Korean Twitter crowd.
To this date, it's still crazy that that happened. Seriously, Davey Johnson just left Chan Ho out to dry.
Random Retirement Tweet
Retired Sunday, thank you to all my fans for all the support. Now its time to move on and move forward in this beautiful life. #NewBeginning— Matt Budgell (@itsbudgell) March 12, 2013
Pretty unexpected considering the 20-year-old 2011 10th rounder out of Irvine, CA posted a sub-one ERA in 12 relief appearances for Kingsport in 2012.

Last, but certainly not least, join in on the fun using the Internet's most comprehensive list of Mets on Twitter.
