Around The NL East

New York Mets
With the Youtube clip of Pedro Martinez and Jaun Marichal releasing roosters into a cockfight in the Dominican Republic last week, I wondered, "What have the other Mets been doing with their free time this summer?" (Especially since they had extra time off, not having to participate in those pesky playoffs.) I did a little research on the 'net and here is what I found.

David Wright and Jose Reyes - They were supposed to go to the cockfight with Pedro in the DR, but when he told them it was just a bunch of roosters, they pulled out.

Carlos Delgado - Dedicated most of his time to a "Free Mike Vick" campaign.

Carlos Beltran - Was in the Keystone State lobbying state representatives to pass a law to bring back the Hegins pigeon shoot. Until now, it was a little known fact that Carlos really hates pigeons, barn swallows, killdeers, and other small urban birds.

Washington Nationals
Here's the latest look at the new Nationals Ballpark.


Florida Marlins

Baseball America recently posted their predicted order of finish in the International League. Their pick for the South Division:
1. Durham Bulls
2. Florida Marlins
3. Richmond Braves
4. Norfolk Tides
5. Charlotte Knights

Atlanta Braves


Check out the video blog from this guy at bravesjournal.com. Initially, I was going to make fun of him, but then I realized that I am about 10 years, 5 twinkies, a lisp and a digital video camera away from being this guy. There isn't much video blogging going on these days, so props to him for a little originality. Also, it takes some moxy to throw your mug up on the internet for everyone to scrutinize. So, I'll let ol' Mac slide this time. I still think those guys who did the Mark Teixeira songs are flamers, though. Oh, and to prove Georgia doesn't hold the exclusive rights to singing d-bags, some New Yorkers sang a song too.

don't pay attention to the times on the posts. you can make it say whatever time you want, so when posts are written in advance, we change the times and dates for the day it is going to be published...

Wright and Reyes love cock fighting!

Don't forget to send an email if interested in the WSBGM's Phantasy League 2.

For those of you that have never heard of the Hegins pigeon shoot, it a gathering where fanatical people show up to blast the hell outta bothersome pigeons. I had a t-shirt of it when I was a kid...pigeon being blown to pieces mid-flight. Amen to the NRA!

By the way, I don't really believe it killing defenseless birdies nor do I even own a gun so don't jump down my throat.

At first I thought that was Carson until I saw that Braves hat. Pigeon shoots, Turkey shoots, Puppy shoots, when I was a kid we had in my town the "Ayatollah Khomeni" shoot. That Washington stadium will be hard to play on like that.

GM-Carson said...

Rumor has it that Oakland is shopping lefty Alan Embree. He makes 3 mil this season and has a similar option for '09...I'd love him in our pen.

ahh yes, the southern man's lisp, or as i like to call it nonsomore ghey

Mac said...

Hey, I know I lisp, I put it in the post title. The Google ads for my post were all about "speech therapy", maybe I should take them up on it.

Jacobin said...

I got about 41 seconds into the Braves video blog before I turned it off. Too much stats. I'd be more drawn in if he would dress up in a Confederate officer's uniform coat over a Braves jersey and threatened to invade Shea Stadium.

GM-Carson said...

It's alright Mac, we all have our quirks.

Corey said...

okay, i'm hooked now.
