As a season ticket holder of the Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball Club, and being a Brooklyn native, I have an untethered affinity from the Mets, for any current or former Cyclones player.  Many of the present Flushing Mets have passed through Brooklyn.  So, I feel fortunate with regards to being able to see many Mets’ prospects before most of the greater scope of Mets’ Fans do.

In a manner of speaking, the Brooklyn Cyclones are my team.  They are Brooklyn.  And this twelve year old club which plays in my backyard, has become a very important part of my Summers in the Borough of Kings.  So it wounds me to hear of this development.

In 2011, Danny Muno (pictured #16 with Fresno State Bulldogs) batted .355 for the Cyclones in fifty-four games played.  The twenty-three year old’s career is now in question, and his future in doubt.  I would be less upset by this news had this Mets’ prospect bypassed my Boardwalk Bombers Club of Coney Island.
