Good morning.

P Jacob deGrom was back in camp after spending a day with his pregnant wife and was back on the bump on one of the mounds outside the clubhouse.

OF Yoenis Cespedes showed up yesterday driving his second custom car, a tricked out, fire spitting, Lamborghini Aventador.

Thank you Michael Golding for passing on this great 1962 article about the Mets - https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/153143120d8387b5?projector=1

Anthony DiComo @AnthonyDiComo  - Jeurys Familia has right mindset to continue dominance http://atmlb.com/21gPxCx

Adam Rubin @AdamRubinESPN  -  Mets' Bartolo Colon took less money, accepted relief possibility to stay http://es.pn/1R1VNDo

New York Mets @Mets - See how a 14 year-old kid made #Mets camp come to a completely halt. http://atmlb.com/1QEOZkO

  Hansel Robles' suspension cut from 3 games to 2 by MLB http://dld.bz/eqVK5

Feel better.

All good in Metsville, including the Ruben decision.

Hope you're doing okay Mack, feel better.

Tom/Joe -

Thanks for your warm thoughts.

Got tomorrow's report started... I have written the opening line 'Good Morning..." :)

Why is it our bodies tell us we need a day to slow down and relax, but we feel too bad to enjoy it?

Great news on the $3 million man! Hopefully Sandy Alderson can peddle him by the All Star Break to some club in need of...wait, what is that Ruben Tejada does well? Remind me...he can't hit, can't run, has no power and last year posted advanced defensive metrics worse than Wilmer Flores...why is he STILL here? For as little as he'd better play you could have the minimum wage Matt Reynolds and by mid season Gavin Cecchini.

Robles suspension = 2G @KC:

I say, piggy back Harvey-Matz/Thor, deGrom-Thor/Matz & go with a 6-man (5, if willing to use Colon) BP and 2 extra position players in KC.

OK, slow day.

Thomas Brennan said...

Reese - Matt Reynolds may just sneak in there. Once he does, he'll do so well that Ralph Kiner would have had to rename Kiner's Corner as Reynolds Wrap. He'd end up being able to afford to buy one of Cespedes' exotic rides.

Mack, just a thought - if you are not up to writing a Morning Report Friday, why not have Ernest re-post his Tradition Field extravanganza from a few days ago - he posted it late, and likely some folks did not see it. it was great.

Ernest Dove said...

Thanks again Tom for all the awesome feedback......
I figured why not further make use of that recent 160ish mile roundtrip to write a follow up post anyway for my usual Friday 10am. I forgot a couple things I wanted to mention about David during his fielding drills.......

Oh, and Reece, in defense of Ruben, he really does have a great glove, and he looked in midseason form on Tuesday with his scoops, quick hands and speed of lightning throw to second for double play drills ;)

Ernest Dove said...

Oh and guys everyine please feel free to use any of my pics in your future posts.......... especially the ones of the arms, Thor and Montero that I took close up ;)

Mack Ade said...

Good idea Tom, but I'm back and the Dove-man will do his Friday 10am follow-up instead

Thomas Brennan said...

Great

Great

@Ernest. Numbers don't lie. His -15 DRS last year at SS tied Cabrera and trailed Flores at -10.

Reese I get a headache when fancy numbers I don't understand are thrown around lol......
Either way im still patiently awaiting the future arrival of Amed Rosario. Cabrera, Tejada, Wilmer, Reynolds, Cecchini, moe, larry and curly can hold the fort until then ;)
