GKR SNY

Meet the Mets

The beloved SNY trio of Gary, Keith, and Ron did their first Facebook live Q & A where they answered questions from the fans.

It’s sports movie week at The Athletic and they reviewed “I’m Keith Hernandez”, a very short satirical documentary that was released in 2007.

Who was the best first baseman in Mets’ history? MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo tried to find out.

He also answered questions from fans including whether or not the team should extend Noah Syndergaard.

Jacob deGrom’s 2018 season and Tom Seaver’s 1971 season are in a bracket of the best individual performances of all time. Vote early and vote often.

Tim Tebow is still continuing to work out while quarantined so he is ready to go once baseball resumes.

Luis Rojas has kept his focus on what lies ahead instead of what could have been and will be ready to manage whenever Opening Day arrives.

Is a pandemic really the correct time to be getting Tommy John surgery?

Meet the 1992 Mets. They were absolutely terrible but perhaps they will have a different fate on Sportstalk Baseball played on the Sega Genesis. Fan John M. Petren is going to find out. Follow along on YouTube and see if the 1992 Mets can overcome their many disasters.

Around the National League East

Talking Chop looked back on the career of Dale Murphy, whose number was retired by the Braves and had a great career for them in the 1970s and 1980s.

Marlins’ fans love the aqua uniforms they wear in spring training and would love to see them entered into the rotation during the season.

The Sim Phillies (Simphillies?) beat up the Brewers 10-3 to win their home opener.

Reliever Sean Doolittle uses reading as an escape from the nightly adrenaline of pitching and he channeled that love of reading into supporting independent bookstores around the country.

Around Major League Baseball

Despite no baseball being played, A.J. Hinch and Jeff Luhnow are technically serving their suspensions for their actions in the Astros cheating scandal.

Now that he is retired, Evan Gattis finally owned up to his part in the scandal and understands all of the anger directed at the team.

Nobody is getting any live sports right now and yet cable providers are still charging consumers for them. The consumers are left with huge bills they can not do anything about.

Four of the six California teams have informed all employees that potential job cuts are coming. The Giants did not send any notices to full-time employees and the Athletics did not send any notices out to their employees.

The Yankees set up a $1.4 million “distress fund” for their employees but it is set aside only for workers who meet certain criteria.

Major League Baseball is just like the rest of us right now by trying to get their work done virtually. Specifically they are using an app that can track progress throughout their systems.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue

March Bad-ness is down to the Foul Four and the voting is tougher still in this round.

Chris McShane’s Sim Mets lost their first series of the season dropping two out of three to the Nationals.

This Date in Mets History

The 2006 season opened on a high note with a 3-2 win over the Nationals. David Wright hit a home run in the sixth which ended up being the deciding run and Billy Wagner got the save for Tom Glavine. A good start to the season and we won’t talk about how it ended.
