I almost cried.
The Citi Field wall renovations are complete. Now maybe Jason Bay will hit a homerun. I do wish they would get rid of that awful "Lets go Mets" shit over the screen and put an updated nyc skyline or something.
Magglio Ordonez is close to retirement and the Indians watched Vlad Guerrero work out. Oswalt still hasn't been signed.
I almost cried.
Also, a fantastic Japanese team promo.
Why would you cry? The Leafs get the same attendance as the Jays.
As a long-suffering baseball fan in a country where hockey is rammed down my throat 24/7, that chant was just so... heartening.
Jamie Moyer at the young age of 49 makes the Rockies rotation and if he wins a start he'll be the oldest MLB pitcher to earn a W.
Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda has tendonitis on his right shoulder and will start the season on the DL.
Only thing that bums me out is he was born in mid November. 50 would be amazing. He's a class guy and still does a lot of work in the NW.
I got three tickets to the Durham Bulls businessman's special the week after next for less than $30. I figure they have as much talent as the Mets and even basically share colors.

Awesome piece on the love of the game in the NYTimes. Even if it was written by a damned Yankee fan.
Jamie Moyer was born 6 months after my mom and made his MLB debut a month before I was born to the day. I played with some older guys in Semi-Pro and got a few surprises from them, but to be in the MLB at that age is pretty spectacular. I wish Jamie the best of luck.
