This Week in FanShots & FanPosts: My kingdom for a horse

Food, superheroes, animated pitcher analyses, a tribute to our neighbors to the south, and an in-depth look at the Mets' bullpen usage are just some of the gems you can find in this week's FanPost and FanShot sections. 

Giving new meaning to the hammer-toss
Thor unleashed his godly wrath on Albuquerque tonight, falling a triple shy of the cycle. LaRomaBella wonders if it's time for him to ride Gullfaxi from Asgard to Citi Field.

In a way, we all have an El Guapo to face, for some it may be shyness, for other it may be a fear of getting hit in the head with a baseball...
Adam Halverson reminds us to never fear while our home plate heroes are around. For wherever there is a pitch to be framed, you will find them. Wherever there is a baserunner to be picked off, you will find them. And wherever a runner is attempting to reach home you will find them.

FlushtownFandom hopes Dilson Herrera is relishing his time in the big leagues, even if he's creating quite a dilemma for Daniel Murphy.

Awaken from your Tacoma and join Bryan!
Bryan Renzi is looking for some West Coast fans to go see a 51s game in Tacoma. West Coast AAvengers, assemble!

That's all for this week, see you next time for more This Week in FanShots & FanPosts!
