SORT BY Relevancy
And we have reached the (unfortunate) finale!
The Rising Apple Report wraps up its first season with a bonus Closing Day special! Sam Maxwell will host, with Rich Sparago calling in live from the Citi Field parking lot!
The last series of the season has been a microcosm of how poorly the Mets have played at home all year (32-48). We'll discuss some theories on why they played so much better in other people's ballparks (41-40).
Terry Collins will receive, as speculated, a 2-year extension. We'll discuss how we feel about this first bit of offseason news.
And Mike Piazza will be a Mets Hall of Famer in a couple of hours. We'll reminisce on some of our favorite memories regarding the all-time catcher.
So, tune it at 11:30AM ET for the last in-season episode of the Rising Apple Report!

$25,000 Missing Person Reward - Small, dark-eyed Julie Weflen was a 28-year-old Bonneville Power Administration worker from Portland when she mysteriously vanished from a BPA substation near Spokane a quarter century ago. $50,000 Unsolved Murder Reward - Every Sunday, Arthur Crum Jr. went to Austin Memorial Cemetery and placed a rose on his daughter's grave until his death in November.

The Rising Apple Report has entered its first September Song, as the Mets will most likely only play for one more month, culminating with Mike Piazza's induction into the Mets Hall of Fame on September 29th against the Brewers. Sam Maxwell and Danny Abriano will break down what's on everybody's mind as the season winds down.
Sandy Alderson joined Mike Francesa on WFAN yesterday for a pretty lengthy conversation that was as well candid. Danny, who was able to transcribe most of the interview, will give us his take on some of the most telling things Sandy said, including comments about Ruben Tejada.
Speaking of which, he is not yet free, though is helping Las Vegas battle for a potential PCL championship. We'll discuss the shortstop and what he needs to do in very short time to prove he's the long-term answer.
And of course, we'll discuss the outcome of today's finale down in Atlanta.
So, join us at 6:30PM ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
Who hijacked your brain?
Often, as friends, you have to confess that you are (ahem) sometimes envious of your friends. She nailed a terrific promotion you wanted; he was your buddy but got into a loving relationship and now you're the third wheel. Your friend's teenager received top honors or landed a key position on the school's soccer team while your child struck out on both.
These people are your allies so why, why, why are you upset or snotty when they do well?
Envy is a Great Teacher.
Think about this: if your old school friend is doing well as a chef in Switzerland - do you care? No, you'd probably send them a congrats comment on Facebook. Or, you don't have children so if little Milly is excelling in nuclear physics you'd send her a personal email.
So why are you more competitive with your friends than with strangers?
