    Rising Apple Report: 2015 Winter Meetings Report Number 1

    in Sports

    The 2015 Winter Meetings are upon us. Coming off of their fun and improbable run to the championship of the National League, the Mets have several decisions to make that will impact the look of the 2016 team. How will they replace Yoenis Cespedes and Daniel Murphy? Is Ben Zobrist the answer? Is it wise to put everything else on hold, pending Zobrist's decision on where he will play next year?


    How will the Mets handle center field? Is Denard Span the answer as the left-hand hitting part of a platoon with Juan Lagares? Should the Mets target a non-platoon option, such as Dexter Fowler? And then there's the bullpen. Having lost out on Darren O'Day and Joakim Soria, who is the current target? Jerry Blevins? Tony Sipp?


    There are so many more decisions to make, with whether or not to bring Bartolo Colon back among them. So, let's try to sort it all out. Please join me, Rich Sparago, as I host the Rising Apple report tonight, December 7th, at 9 pm. I'll be joined by Sam Maxwell, Danny Abriano, and possibly Mike Lecolant. Greg Price from Faith and Fear in Flushing will be our guest, and we may even have another surprise or two.


    You can access the show by the link below. Or you can give us a call at 646-929-0337.


    We look forward to talking Mets Hot Stove Baseball with you!

    in Sports

    Happy New Year, Metsian Folk! The Rising Apple Report returns for its 1st episode of 2016! Brooklyn Trolley Blogger Mike Lecolant hosts, with site editor Danny Abriano and writer Rich Sparago joining them for all the piping hot Mets talk! Joining them as well will be long-time friend of Rising Apple and blogger Metstradamus, Mr. John Coppinger.


    Well, after 4 years of waiting, it finally happened: Mike Piazza, the greatest hitting catcher of all time, has been elected to the baseball Hall of Fame! AND as expected, he will don a Mets cap on his plaque. We'll discuss his career, our favorite memories, and what this means for the era of the 90's and 00's overall in future HOF voting.


    Most fans have wished for a more active offseason following a pennant-winning year, but that has not occurred. Whether it's the debt the Wilpons are still living under, Sandy Alderson's reluctance to dole out long-term 2nd generation contracts, or both, we'll discuss the offseason so far, as well as options the Mets should still be considering, whether realistic they will pursue them or not.


    So, join us at 6:30pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!

    Rising Apple Report - NLDS Game Five Special: One More Night in Hollywood

    in Sports

    Set your clocks back to Pacific Time folks.  The NLDS between the Mets and Dodgers is knotted at two games apiece, sending everyone back to California for a decisive Game 5 at Chavez Ravine.


    Rising Apple continues their coverage Wednesday evening at 9:00pm ET, with senior staff writer and host Michael Lecolant talking Mets baseball with featured guest Gary McDonald from MetsMusings.com.


    The Mets' and Dodgers' intertwining New York histories, marvelous pitching performances, and hard play, have so far made for a fascinating four games.


    Back when the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants eloped hand in hand to California, they left behind a lovechild whom the jilted citizens of New York City named the Metropolitans, or Mets for short.  The histories of these three teams, therefore, will forever remain linked.


    Generational differences first came to a head when the old establishment Los Angeles Dodgers took their expansion era junior to task during the 1988 National League championship series.


    After 18 mostly trying seasons, the Mets finally exacted their revenge upon the Dodgers during the 2006 NLDS.


    Last Friday, and for only the third time in their respective histories, the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers revisited their unresolved post-season rivalry.


    They say family feuds are usually the worst kinds, and Game 2 proved it.


    The Mets are traveling back west for one more night in Hollywood.  


    The Rising Apple Report will discuss it all tonight at 9pm sharp.  The number to call is 646-929-0337.


    Let's Go Mets!
