    Episode #131 Rising Apple Report: Mets Fast Approaching Washington's Doorstep

    in Sports

    What sluggish start?


    After closing to within one game of the Washington Nationals, the red hot New York Mets are taking a well deserved rest Thursday evening before resuming their march on first place Friday against the visiting San Francisco Giants.


    This afternoon's Phillies victory over the Nationals, however, put the Mets just one-half game out of first place.  And so the Rising Apple Report therefore decided to kick things up another notch tonight in their place.


    How hot are they?  The Mets returned to Citi Field on Monday after a victorious 7-2 road trip.  They're winners of 11 of their last 13 games, and in the midst of a 6-game winning streak via consecutive series sweeps over the Braves and Reds.


    Rising Apple staff writers Michael Lecoland, Sam Maxwell, and Rich Sparago, will review player performances and the Mets' successful, albeit unfinished month of April, and ponder where they go from here.


    The 131st episode of the Rising Apple Report kicks off Thursday evening at 9:00pm ET sharp!  


    As always, they welcome you to phone the show at 646-929-0337, and join their spirited, never ending Metsian discussion.

    Episode #128 Rising Apple Report: Bidding Winter farewell with John Pielli

    in Sports

    Happy St. Patrick's Day, and Let's Go Mets!


    Alas, the final weekend of Winter is at hand, leaving us a mere 17 days away from the New York Mets regular season opener in Kansas City against the Royals.


    Tonight, our 128th episode of the Rising Apple Report will review highlights of the first 13 Spring Training games played to date.


    We'll also delve into Sandy Alderson's remaining financial ability to enhance this year's roster.  One thing, however, seems certain - Ruben Tejada will likely not be part of it, as he was released.  And so, we'll take another look at the team's potential back-up shortstop situation.  


    We'll also discuss Matt Harvey's slider, reasonable expectations for David Wright and Neil Walker, if Jacob deGrom's symbolic refusal to sign his contract should be of any concern, and much more.


    Rising Apple staff writers Michael Lecolant and Rich Sparago will host this evening's show starting at 9pm (ET) sharp, featuring special guest John Pielli of the Passed Ball Show and MTR Media.


    And of course, you're always welcome to call (646-929-0337) and join the conversation.

    Ep. #129, The Rising Apple Report: First After Action Review of 2016 Season

    in Sports

    The first eight games of the regular season are in the books.  


    While the Amazin's travel to Cleveland to play their opponent, the Rising Apple crew will be busy this evening reviewing the week that was.


    Good pitching, lack of hitting, and losing to the Marlins - sound familiar?  You're not alone.  


    Several solid pitching performances indeed have gone for not, as the offense continues struggling to sync up.  Terry Collins additionally registered his first cringe worthy moment, while the Miami Marlins came, saw, and did what they do best - agitate Mets fans.


    Yes, for better or worse, Baseball is back!  


    Rich Sparago and Michal Lecolant will try to make sense of it all, this Thursday evening on the 129th episode of the Rising Apple Report starting at 9:00pm (ET) sharp.


    A Gal For All Seasons - aka The Coop - will be their featured guest.  And of course, Rising Apple invites you to call 646-929-0337 to join the Metsian conversation.
