    Rising Apple Report Episode 99- Let The Games Begin!

    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!

    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.

    This Just In with Rick Tamlyn: Apple Watches and Dreamers

    in Culture

    This Just In ... Rick Tamlyn is riffing with the world in his new series, This Just In with Rick Tamlyn.


    The concept for this program came about because Rick has always given the world his inspiration, and - in his own words -  he sees a world that doesn’t focus on the “bad” news of the day, he sees a world that celebrates the power of human potential, a world in which people tap into their own creative power and create a bigger game – no matter how public or personal - that benefits not only them - also their community and ultimately the world at large.


    Expect just about anything in this series, which premieres on Monday, April 6, 2015 at 8 AM ET, and airs bi-monthly. The second April program airs on April 20th.
