    Epidode 91 - The Rising Apple Report: A Winter of Dissatisfaction?

    in Sports

    The Mets hot stove is failing to generate sufficient heat.  That's the sentiment among a growing number of fans.


    While the N.L. East has worked itself into a trading frenzy this winter, the Mets lone off-season acquisition remains outfielder Michael Cuddyer.


    With a shortstop situation screaming for resolution, and a need for a lefty in the bullpen, Mets boosters are growing increasingly perturbed with the lack of front office activity.


    Clearly then, ownership's financial straits continue to hamper team operations.  Ticket prices are rumored to be going up this coming season, yet, there's been no uptick in payroll.


    How is it possible then, Fred Wilpon was named to head Major League Baseball's finance committee?


    Tonight, the 91st episode of the Rising Apple Report will try and make sense of it all.  Rich Sparago will host what is sure to be a spirited roundtable discussion, and will be joined by fellow Rising Apple staff writers Michael Lecolant and Kevin Baez.


    Joining the crew to share his insights will be special guest, John Coppinger, from MetstradamusBlog.com.


    Tonight's opening pitch is at 9:00pm (EST) sharp.


    Of course, we'd love to have you call in as well.  Please do, at 646-929-0337.

    Ep #92 - The Rising Apple Report: 21 Days till Pitchers and Catchers

    in Sports

    Let the countdown begin!


    Pitchers and catchers report to camp on February 19th, and the first full squad workout is scheduled for February 26th.


    Until then, it's time to heave another log into the old Hot Stove.


    Michael Lecolant will be hosting tonight's 92nd episode of the Rising Apple Report.  Joining him from the RA staff will be the Converted Mets Fan, Sam Maxwell.


    Their guests will include Stephen Keane from KranepoolSociety.com, and John Pielli, host of the Passed Ball Show at JohnPielli.com.


    Sandy Alderson still has work to do.  That will kick off the evening's discussion.


    If his mind is truly focused on contending in 2015, he'd still be trying to resolve an unsatisfactory situation at shortstop, pursuing another established left-hander for the bullpen, and avoiding a logjam in the starting rotation.


    They'll also discuss the appearance of six Mets on Keith Law's top 100 prospects list, and the interview that took place between Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports and Commissioner Robert Manfred regarding the Wilpons financial condition.


    The show kicks off at 9:00pm (EST) sharp.


    As always, your participation is most welcome.  Please call the Rising Apple Report at 646-929-0337.

    The Rising Apple Report: Episode #93 - Two Weeks Left Till Pitchers and Catchers

    in Sports

    With two weeks remaining before pitchers and catchers are due to report, the New York Mets still have unsettled business.


    The failure to trade Dillon Gee thus far poses a log jam in the starting rotation, and potentially crowds the bullpen with yet another right-hander.  Unless something changes, it seems then, southpaw Josh Edgin is destined for an abusive workload.


    Meanwhile, the general manager down ticked his personal expectations this season by one game, to 89 victories, yet is formulating a tentative plan to monitor Matt Harvey's innings in order to have him pitch into October.  In much clearer terms, Terry Collins is also making pretty bold playoff predictions for the upcoming season.


    The 93rd episode of the Rising Apple Report will discuss these matters, and more.  Hosting this evening's roundtable discussion will be Rich Sparago.  He will be joined by fellow staff writers Michael Lecolant and Chris Schubert.


    Tonight's special guest will be Greg Prince, from FaithAndFearInFlushing.com.


    They'll also discuss the recent departure of SNY's pre and post game analyst, Bobby Ojeda, and of course, revisit the 1993 regular season.


    The show starts at 9:00pm (EST) sharp.  You're always welcome to call and join the discussion.  The number to dial is 646-929-0337.

    ME – Well I’m just your average everyday woman, filled with Life, Love and Laughter.  I’m excited about life’s benefits, though not always excited about my choices.  I rise each morning looking forward to a great cup of coffee and a good book.  Sometimes the Bible, preferably, but always a good read.  My morning would not be morning without God and my Cup of Coffee.


    GOD – My source of joy, my reason for living, my beginning and my end.  The beauty that I see when I look into a flower.  The birds I hear chirping as I lay in bed meditating on my day. The peace that surpasses all understanding.  My friend and comforter in Him I live, move and have my being.  G0d – My everything.


    Coffee – Part of every good conversation and Privy to every private thought.  The start of every friendship begins with Coffee. In the acknowledgment of life or even the report of death there’s usually coffee.  The universal language for “The Talk”.
