The Orange and Blue Diary – Chapter 1 – Sports Talk with Anthony

The Orange and Blue Diary has returned! Mets’ fans Opening Night which is Sunday, is almost upon us! As I write this I am watching a Mets’ Spring Training game so do you think I am ready for Opening Night, answer: YES I AM!!!

You can be sure that The Orange and Blue Diary will have many entries this year! Prior to every big game or series, I will be sure to give you my unbiased opinion about the upcoming game or series.

So what can we expect from our beloved Mets this year, well fans I have to tell you this is as optimistic as I have been in a long time! We have the best starting pitching staff in baseball, and the best hitter in baseball in, Yoenis Cespedes decided to return to Queens to help the Mets finish what they started! My only concern is the Mets now have the distinction of being the defending National League Champions; you might say what is wrong with that, think about it every team wants to beat the champions.

There was some concern about whether the Dark Knight would rise on Sunday night, for people who do not understand that reference it means that there was concern about whether Matt Harvey the Mets’ ace would start on Sunday night in the opener against the Kansas City Royals. Fear not Mets’ fans, the Dark Knight will rise on Sunday night! Harvey had a blood clot in his Bladder which without getting too graphic has passed. In order for the Mets to continue their success, their starting pitchers must show the rest of the league that their success last year was not an anomaly. Don’t take that the wrong way; I certainly do not think it was I just know how some people think.

 

I know the big question that everybody has for me; you want to know whether I think the Mets will win the World Series this year. My answer to you is, I do not know, at the risk of sounding cliché, the baseball season like every other sports season is unpredictable. It can bring unexpected hurdles to any team, so even if I did make a prediction it would be an uninformed one because you cannot predict the future.

 

Enough with the predictions, it is time to sit back and enjoy America’s Pastime! LET’S GO METS!!
