  • Post-Labor Day Weekend

    I was there for the Friday and Saturday games this weekend (it was like being kicked repeatedly while a bunch of Mets fans said “Jose” in a whimsical manner), and I watched all of Sunday’s delightful reprise, and today’s game . . . and yet I feel completely out of the loop. It’s sad when […]

  • A List Of Things I’m Mad About, Followed By A Hiatus

    I’m going on a little mini-vacation starting tomorrow and won’t be back online until Labor Day evening at the earliest. We’re actually going to be downtown all weekend, and we’re going to the Mets games on Friday and Saturday, but we’re staying in a hotel that charges like twenty bucks a day for internet access, […]

  • “Getting To The Dance”

    So, were those first few days after Tex arrived fun, or what? How about that one afternoon when Willie made that catch? Other than that, yeah. Dark times. Please enjoy a Frenchy quote that made me laugh: “We have a team that’s good enough to win the World Series,” he said, “whether we go in […]

  • It’s A Long Story

    Two things that contributed to bad defensive plays in that game: 1) Bobby starting Prado instead of Scooter. 2) Eric Byrnes. And if you can figure out how Byrnes was to blame, well. You’re probably some form of me, accessing this blog from another dimension. Hi. Totally unrelated, Bethany asked that I post the transcript […]

  • Frenchy Fun Facts!

    At least once a week, either Bowman or someone at the AJC does a “so check out how good Frenchy is this year, eh???” article. (As opposed to the “so check out how many RBIs Frenchy has this year” straw clutching of last year). Here’s this week’s, hot off the press! Engaged to his high […]

  • Fun With Media On New Guy Day!

    I’ve said this before, but there are times when I forget that I’m obsessed with baseball because it’s fun to watch, not just because it’s eaten my brain and I’m therefore willing to be in agony when things go wrong. Last night, New Guy Preview Night, I’ll call it, my husband went to bed early, […]

  • Finally, The Collection Will Be Complete

    So we’re leaving in a few hours for Heap Giveaway Day at the park. Hopefully it won’t rain on us like it did during Frenchy Giveaway Day last year . . . Here are some highlights from my old blog: Frenchy Night brought out all the #7 jerseys on fangirls and boys of all ages, […]

  • DRAMA!

    So I woke up this morning feeling like I’d only dreamed a baseball game last night, after all the off days. I came to the computer and read email for a few minutes before I remembered that there would be AP photos and quotes to harvest, brand new! And boy were there. Apparently the second […]

  • Frenchy Gets This A Lot

    Kent: Oooooooh pretty . . . Kent: /reaches out, Torgo-style Kent: /freezes Kent: OH MY GOD WHERE’S THE BASEBALL?!?! In other news, we finally won a game.

  • The Scooter Situation

    Scooter has entered platoon land, and he doesn’t want to talk about it. Dave O’Brien assumes this means he’s pissed. I of course came to the same conclusion, but I kind of hate to see Scooter called out for his dissatisfaction with the situation, since he’s already on Bobby’s bad/platoon side. I think it’s interesting […]
