In case you missed it…

The Mets have made him available via trade, but opposing teams have yet to call to inquire about Bartolo Colon.

I ALWAYS FIND THE ALL STAR GAME BORRRRRING! MURPHY STRUCK OUT, WHO CARES. I NEVER WATCH THE GAME, IT'S ALL A COMMERCIAL VENTURE AND EGO CRAZY.

How absolutely bogus MLB has become. Not a single mention of Tony Gwynn, a spectacular player and personality who cast a longer shadow than Jeter.. How pathetic.

Lets Go Mets!

Makes you want to shout "Hey Mom, deGrom's the bomb!" ♪ ♫

Is there any more boring time in sports than the days after the MLB All Star Game ? Two WNBA games and first two rounds of The Open Championship, not even AAA or AA Mets tonite, it's a sports waste land!

@baldy They are all off.  A couple of years ago the players union worked out a deal where all games do not resume until Friday.

@Lets Go Mets! I applaud the enthusiasm, but if your target audience is shouting things to their mom, then I guess the readers on this blog are a bit younger than I thought.  Or, you know, adults who are still living at home…ouch.

@Kevin VanTassell A good night to go watch your favorite baseball movie!  Hmmm…Bull Durham? Field of Dreams? Major League? The Natural? Moneyball? Eight Men Out?
