It’s that time of the year again. Thanksgiving has come as the Rising Apple Report arrives at its 48th episode! I will host, with Rich Sparago and Mike Lecolant on board for the latest Metsian conversations.
I’m not going to be a pessimist and say there is nothing to be thankful for when it comes to the Metsies. I love baseball, I love this team and I am thankful to have the sport to cherish. But please, will you guys stop making it so easy for everyone to make fun of you? We don’t want to talk directly about the holiday card, but the fact the Mets continue to not have foresight, common sense, and a proper thought process about their timing. Regardless of what they need to do to improve on the field, wouldn’t it be nice if they didn’t make it THAT much easier to make fun of them?
Oh, yeah, since the last time we were together, they have signed Outfielder Chris Young, and Jhonny Peralta was scratched off the board when signing with the Cardinals. (Yeah, I should have led with that, but I think the fact I didn’t says it all.) We’ll discuss the signing and the pros and cons of it.
Also, any up-to-the-minute news and rumors will be discussed.
And of course, in what has become a weekly tradition, we’ll discuss the history of the number 48 for the Mets, delving into who we think takes the cake for the best number 48 in New York Mets history.
So, bring your Throneberry Sauce at 6:30PM ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
