Rising Apple Report: Ep. 5, Tonight at 6:30

All of us here at Rising Apple have been thrilled to bring a half-hour of Mets talk to the internet airwaves each week since the year has begun. And we are thrilled as well that many of you have joined us every Wednesday at 6:30PM. For those not lucky enough to have caught the last 4 weeks, you have a chance for a clean slate tonight with Episode 5: And What’s the Deeeaaal With the 11th pick?! I am back for more hosting duties as I welcome fellow staff writers Dan Haefeli and Danny Abriano to the table.

On this episode, with news that Sandy Alderson actually sat down with Michael Bourn and Scott Boras, we will once again be discussing the free agent and keeping you posted on any up-to-the-minute news regarding the matter.

Last week, our resident card collector, recently-turned-13-year-old Julian, called in with 2 minutes left in the show, unfortunately fresh off a loss in his basketball game. With this week’s b-ball scheduled for another day, we will be able to have Julian on for a longer segment. His over 600 Mets cards will be discussed, and some of his favorites will be highlighted. Also, with Topps 2013 Series 1 having just been released, we will discuss the upcoming year and the way the card business works.

And can you believe it has been 5 years since the Johan Santana trade? We will reminisce about the deal, discussing all the players involved, and whether the entire thing was worth it just to have that one moment…

So, be sure to join us at this link at 6:30 tonight for the most action-packed half-hour of Mets talk anywhere on the World Wide Web!
