Good morning. As many of you know, I was seriously injured and can’t walk. I disappeared from the blog, but when I returned you welcomed me back and I am grateful. I am now in Ohio for a few weeks to go to the Cleveland Clinic for more tests and treatment. I am very optimistic.
I promise I won’t fade this time.
It is bitter cold here. Snow, but not as bad as Buffalo. Even without practicing this week, and probably not having their full roster, they’ll still beat the Jets.
All this makes me think about spring training. I could stand for it being 60 degrees warmer. Then again, can’t we all?
I’ll be back later with thoughts on the Mets and free agency in general. Take care. JD
Greetings. It’s September and there’s a fall nip in the air that forewarns of a pennant race. The Philadelphis Phillies are in for a three-game series and this was supposed to be a special weekend. Instead, we have the Mets, a sliding team on the field and a fractured, disjointed team off it waiting for the season to end.
There’s a sadness with the end of the baseball team as it represents the end of summer, the briskness of fall that leads us into the unrelenting winter. Emotionally. the end of season represents the death of a dream of a promise for so much more.

Sorry for the late post. It was a planes, trains and automobile travel day today to Indianapolis, which apparently turns into a ghost town when the Colts play. Nobody at the airport and the streets are empty.
To catch up on some Mets notes, there is a report they are interested in Josh Willingham, which wouldn’t be a bad thing. Not the greatest of acquisitions, but certainly a better option in left than Angel Pagan.
Oh, yeah, one more thing … can we forget about the Mets dealing Luis Castillo. Of course, they’d like to move him, but his salary, age, injury history and the fact last season might have been a fluke, all of which add up to conspire against a deal being made.
Would you trade for a player with those strikes against him? I wouldn’t, either.
