    Boy, just when you think Homer is getting it together....
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Not a fan of the Mets cap with the gray "NY" logo. It just doesn't look right.

    I agree but then I think the Mets color schemes are all ugly.

    In one of the games, Joe was talking about RBI, I think, and started out talking old school, but by the end was espousing a SABR-sounding approach. I think at heart he knows this modern stuff, but for some reason bristles at the us and them, and reps the old school.

    I don't mind the blue and orange, especially due to the historical context of it.

    Remember that Mets brought National League baseball back to the Big Apple after a four-year absence. They took the blue from the Brooklyn Dodgers and the orange from the New York Giants. The stylized "NY" logo is also the old Giants logo.

    As he was tracking that one, I was saying "Ervin better catch that one". I think he'll be adequate at CF. Much more worried about him hitting enough.

    Just came here to ask who is getting suspended for throwing inside? These broadcasts are 3 hours of "baseball used to be better."

    I can't see Nimmo without thinking about the hilarious "Nimmo sucks" followed by "What, they didn't even get Nimmo?" response last year to the Bruce trade.

    Mrs. Verb is a Giants fan (hush, Raisor!) so we watch a lot of those games. Between John Miller, Krukow, and Kuiper, it's really refreshing compared to the "Duvall ought to bunt more" and "RBI good, OBP bad" crap we get night after night on the Reds telecast.

    Another ball in CF that should have been caught. And then an E8.

    And I like Ervin.

    Duvall on the other hand, really ought to win the GG this year.
