    in Sports

    It's Easter Sunday. We are in the midst of Passover too. And in the sports world, it's the first day of baseball season! Though the Mets begin play for real on Monday, April, 6th, the Major League season begins tonight as the Cardinals take on the Cubs in Chicago.


    The Rising Apple team will be conducting a special roundatable discussion of all things Mets. We'll chat about the 8-man bullpen, innings limits for Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, the team's 19-12-2 Spring Training record, the roster, and much more as we're on the eve of the Mets' 2015 season. We'll even let you know who we think is going to win the World Series.


    Join Danny Abriano, Mike Lecolant, Dan Haefli, and maybe more writers from the Rising Apple staff to engage in some fun Mets dialogue at 9 pm, Sunday, April 5th. I (Rich Sparago) will be your host as we count the hours until Mets baseball.


    So listen in, give us a call, we'd love to hear from you! Let's celebrate the return of Mets baseball with the 99th edition of the Rising Apple Report!

    Episode 94, The Rising Apple Report: Camp Bravado is open for business

    in Sports

    The caleder still says February, the temperature in the northeast is still below freezing, and for many the winter snow has been relentless.  However, nothing advertises a changing of the season quite like Spring Training.


    Port St. Lucie is finally open for business.  All position players were due by Tuesday, and today marked the first day of full squad workouts.


    Over the winter, the Mets contracted a strong case of confidence.  Tonight's 94th episode of the Rising Apple Report will swing the gates open to Camp Bravado, and debate the merits of their words.


    If the Mets indeed seem emboldened to you, perhaps the return of Matt Harvey is one reason why.  On March 6th, he will tentatively take the mound and face live competition for the first time since 2013.


    Also up for discussion are the potential crowding of the bullpen and a lack of another lefty, Lucas Duda's injury, the never ending quest to rectify shortstop, the 1994 regular season, and much more.


    Rising Apple staff writer Rich Sparago will host this evening's discussion, and will be joined by fellow staff writer Michael Lecolant.  As always, you are most welcome to call the show and join the conversation.


    The number is 646-929-0337.  The show starts at 9:00pm (EST) sharp.

    in Lifestyle

    What is the recipe for a successful life?  Do all little boys have to play baseball?  Are hotdogs good for us?  How much sugar is in apple pie?  Is life a picnic?  Do you think people are really happy in life or pretending to accept the world around them?


    What do you think reflects a person's success in life?  Let's talk about it all.  If we don't look at what success is how can we expect our children to reach a level of sucess to be self-sustainable?

    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.
