It’s beginning to look a lot like baseball…

Most teams have their first spring training games today (including the Mets).

I took today’s photo back in 2012 at Citi Field in New York. I have no idea if the giant Topps cards continue to adorn the concourse, but I thought it was about the coolest thing I had ever seen.

Here is a photo of the Mets starting lineup on that day in baseball cards.

250+ wins and 3,000+ Ks will be the final tally for CC when the 2019 season ends this weekend. Not bad. Will he make the Hall of Fame?

Magical season

Easy call

R.A. Dickey has been extremely mediocre during his 16 years in major league baseball. He’s a .500 pitcher with an ERA a bit above 4. In 2012, however, he had a season that was anything but mediocre. He won the National League Cy Young award by a landslide.

He came into the game, pictured above, with an 11-1 record and 2.00 ERA. He was on a roll, having won his prior 9 games–3 by shutout. He had struck out 25 batters in his prior two starts, and at least 8 in each of his prior 7 starts.

This game, against the Yankees, did not go his way (other than this score of his). The Mets lost, although Dickey didn’t take the loss. He rebounded, though, and threw a shutout in his next outing.
