BIG thanks to my friend “Father Puck” for donating the following to my ticket stub collection…

Normally I’m only interested in owning tickets for games I actually attended, but I make exceptions when something extraordinary comes my way.

(Meanwhile, I’m not surprised that Johan Santana is coming to Queens. The Mets aren’t interested in becoming a better team; it’s just a conspiracy to generate hype and make Shea Stadium as crowded as possible so I won’t snag as many baseballs.)

Re Disney question, I also posted this as a reply on my community blog…

I forwarded your question to Bill Chastain, our Rays beat writer at MLB.com. He replied: “The Rays are still waiting for approval, but could know as early as tomorrow.” So since this comment will live on beyond that, check out the Rays’ schedule page for info.

Thanks VERY much. Can’t wait to hear the answer.

Hi Zack….

Don’t remember if I already mentioned this, but I grew up in Orlando. I’ve already booked my flight and reserved my room at my parent’s house for these games. I’m pretty sure they will happen since they were a success last year. If they don’t wind up in Orlando, then I guess I’ll just have to drive down to Tampa. I hope to see you there.

Zack,
When I would go to Twins @ Orioles games, Johann would stand in center field with some other pitchers of his ethnicity. He would only go for balls that were in his immediate area and usually wouldn’t throw them out. I was usually the only Twin fan in the area, so he couldn’t hear me yelling over the loud music. Hopefully you will have better luck with him. As for auto’s, I never saw him signing along the walls. Maybe he has a different routine when he’s home, or maybe he will change that when he comes to NY because he knows everyone’s going to love him.

Oh, and those tickets are much nicer than the ones I had for the Left Center bleachers. I wonder why….

i think that youre gonna have to get him early. I think he’ll be accessable to fans in 2008 since hes such a big star and hes in a new city…but i have heard that he will sign coming into the stadium if theres not many people there and inside too…idk, im making an assumption but i think hes a rather reasonable guy and not a complete ****, but NY and $ does change people so you never know, but i think your gonna have to get him in 2008 and early in 2008

Zack, you should have came last night!. I got a puck during warmups that fell from the net, and I got a gamer.

How come you can say ****, but noT *******?

The last work was su*k

Because **** is a name. **** Cheynie (sp)

Not the way you used it!

This is absolutely ridiculous. The Twins traded Johan Santana for pretty nothing to the Mets. He is the best pitcher in the major leagues right now (well, maybe Beckett) and the Twins traded him for a competing outfielder and three “prospects”. Better yet, Harold Reynolds is saying that he’ll throw the Mets first no hitter…. This is making me feel GREAT.

As someone who has had Johan Santana anchoring their AL-only Rotisserie pitching staff for the last five years, I would not say the Twins unloaded him for nothing.

The Twins have some rebuilding to do, and they shed $13 million in salary. In addition, Santana has always been absolutely dominant in the second half of the season…until last year. He gave up a lot of long balls as well. So a seven-year deal at that money was a lot. And given that Santana was basically up for auction, the Twins got as much as was going to be offered.

Btw, my first Rotisserie Draft was held in 1987 in the very same hearing room on Capitol Hill where the steroids hearings have been taking place–and Congressman Henry Waxman was a publicity seeking pain in the rear back then too!

Also, the Yankee playoff tickets above are nicer than the bleacher tickets mentioned earlier because these tickets are complete sets for the entire playoffs provided to season ticket holders who are entitled to the same seats for every playoff game.

yea i wouldnt say they traded him for nothing. Those four prospects the Mets gave up were all top 10 in the system. Humber and Mulvey could be ver solid number 2-3 starters in a few years. Carlos Gomez has great potential.

Im personally not worried about Santana. I think this will in a way rejuvinate him, and i think that some of his struggles just came from the twins overusing him and frustration on how bad the team was playing…

anyway, i was also NOT happy about a 7 year deal, but we’ll see how he does. Mechanically hes very sound, so im not worried about some bad shoulder injury, but you never know with pitchers these days anymore.

Either was its an incredable deal, that puts the mets from NL wildcard potential to basically the favorite to win the NL and go to the Series.

Santana

Pedro

Maine

Olly P

El Duque

thats solid. Pedro pitched well when he returned, el duque is still quality but **** most likely get injured at some point cause hes like 61287487843 years old for all we know..

but it should be an exciting year, and id like to see them sign another starter (lohse or someone) who’d be willing to come out of the pen untill theyre needed to start

LEIGH-
You already booked it?! But what if the Rays don’t end up playing there? Anyway, as SOON as you hear anything about this, please let me know.

DB3PAR-

That’s not good news about Johan, but I suspect that over the course of the season, I should be able to get at least one ball from him. It’s hard to say whether the players the Twins got for him will amount to anything. They might all turn out to be All-Stars, but I still think the Twins could’ve gotten more.

JONELI24-

Makes sense. Anyway, I’d *much* rather get a ball from him than an autograph, and in this case, I think it’ll be easier to get the ball, especially given the fact that I usually hang out in right field near all the Mets pitchers during BP.

PUCK COLLECTOR-

There are also a bunch of (ex-) major leaguers named ****. So there you go. Sorry I couldn’t come to the game with you guys, but it’s just as well that you ended up with all those pucks and not me.

FATHER PUCK-

Excellent points all around. I do think, however, that Johan will be much closer to dominant than decent.

I don’t think you would have ended up with any that I got. I think that you might have been like my dad, and half the other people at the games, who like duck when a puck comes flying there way. I still do, but I’ve mostly gotten used to it. Also, I’m down at the glass where i think a puck is gonna land, before most people know that it’s coming, the everyone stares at me cuz I’m running around for a puck that doesn’t fall. I took a Yankee Stadium tour today, and the upper deck behind home plate is completely up in the new stadium. I’ll e-mail you the pics.

belichek is a SORE LOSER. HE LEFT THE FIELD BEFORE THE GAME WAS OVER.

I WAS ON MY DADS TERRACE BEFORE AND ALL YOU COULD HEAR WAS LETS GO GIANTS. PEOPLE WRE JUST SCREAMING IT. ELI!!!! MERCURY MORRIS FINALLY GOT TO POP THAT CHAMPAGNE. NO ONE EVER REMEMBERS WHO LOST BUT KNOW THEY WILL. EVERYONE EXCEPT THE COMEDIAN FRANK, AND JERRY RICE PICKED THE PATS!!!!!!!!!

I’VE GOT TO GO. MY TEACHER GAVE THE LAB PORTION OF OUR MIDTERM TOMMOROW, KNOWING THE GIANTS WERE IN IT. SHE WAS ALREADY THE MOST HATED TEACHER, BUT NOW! UGHHH!

THE GGGGGGGGGGGGGG-MEN

I know I can’t belive Belichek left. Then after the game all the analists started saying how the New York Football Giants had such a chance and that they liked them all along. Eli did great under pressure and only one interception all game and it wasn’t even his fault.

Ahem
I am pleased to announce that it is only 55 days until Nationals opening day. The only thing is that they put it on a Sunday night at like 8. I have a ticket, but I also have school the next day…predicament?

PUCK COLLECTOR-
Oh yeah? Well what if I just followed you around all night and reached in front of you every time a puck was coming? (That’s a joke. I would never do that.) Sore loser indeed, but you can’t expect anyone to be gracious in that situation. It was his right to storm off the field, just like it’s our righ to diss him for it. I hate teachers like that. Have they all forgotten what it was like to be young?

HUNTKENYON-

I can believe it. I used to be sorest loser ever when I was a kid, so in a sad way, I can relate.

DB3PAR-

It’s no predicament at all, unless your parents turn it into one. Can you get all your homework done? Are you willing to wake up the next day and go to school even if you’re tired? Yes? Then it’s a non-issue.
