Meet the Mets
Thanksgiving (or the day after Thanksgiving) is always a great reminder that sometimes we take sports too seriously. We all know that not everyone appreciates when Sandy Alderson makes jokes about the Mets, but at least some people appreciate the general manager's sense of humor.
Also known to enjoy a good joke was the late Ray Sadecki, who pitched for the Mets from 1970 through 1974 and again in 1977.
Around the Majors
Pedro Strop was involved in a serious car accident in the Dominican Republic. Initial reports regarding Strop's condition are encouraging, as he appears to have escaped without major injury.
Yesterday at Amazin' Avenue
Steve Schreiber reminded us that we have plenty to be thankful for as Mets fans, even if the team hasn't made the playoffs in nearly a decade.
