Fun with Statcounter III

I'll put up a real post by monday morning...working on a couple ideas at the moment. In the meantime

Ok...I've gotten too many intriguing hits in the last week not to bring this up. Can the following clickers on this site please ID themselves via e-mail?

The 2 people who looked up "Joe Foy" on google
The person from Massachusetts who was looking for "Carl Yastrzemski and Al Moran" on google
The person from Houston looking for a picture of Charlie Kerfeld
The person who logs on regularly from "Premiere Radio"
The person who logged on from Random House two days in a row
The person who logged on from Google headquarters
The person who logged on from "Sterling Mets"
and anyone else with an interesting background, or who found me through an odd search engine request...So help me, I'm curious.

Sorry to those of you who might see this update on their "My Yahoo" page and think that I wrote something new. We'll have some good stuff up this week.

Your Statcounter info scares me - smacks of a Big Brother tool. I was identified earlier as a visitor from Oxford, OH. I am here at Miami University finishing my PhD in Zoology. I often flip between Mets blogs, the MU library page, NY newspapers, and academic journals. I hope the university isn't tracking me with the same interest that you have. I am waiting for an email from the Web Police for some of the weird crap I have googled in the course of mostly aimless procrastination.

Minutiae Break: Worst Mets Relievers

It occurs to me after 79 straight walk-off related posts and some fatigue still remaining from Saturday's finish that I did promise to bring Metspective on other issues related to the Flushing 9, so I offer this posting up as a "Minutiae Break." This came about after several discussions related to the offhand Dick Tidrow/Danny Graves remark the other day , the conclusion of which indicated that it would be fun to create a list of the worst Mets relievers of all-time. I don't want to step on the territory of other bloggers, like " Faith and Fear in Flushing ," Mets Guy in Michigan " and " Metstradamus ," so I'll tread carefully here, aided by their influence. Should any friends, family members, or fans of these pitchers visit this site, I mean no harm. I'm just here to have a little fun with this topic. The ground rules are as follows: The pitcher must have had a Mets stint as long as Dick Tidrow's (11 games, 15 2/3 innings), for

The 'Duca of Earl (and walk-offs)

If I told you that the Mets had just obtained a guy who is a career .316 hitter with runners in scoring position? How about if I told you that the Mets just traded for a hitter who has consistently ranked among the toughest in baseball to strike out? Or if I mentioned that the Mets just dealt for a player who was selected to the NL All-Star team the last three seasons, with the last honor coming via a vote by his peers? So, although he's on the down side age wise, his throwing arm isn't as good as it used to be, and he doesn't provide much power, there are a lot of good things that Paul Lo Duca brings to the New York Mets. For example: He'll sacrifice his body for the good of the team The Dodgers and Braves squared off on August 23, 2002 and Lo Duca made an impact both on the start and finish of this game. Three pitches after being dusted by Greg Maddux, Lo Duca made him pay with a first-inning home run. The Braves rallied to tie the game, 3-3 in the ninth, but thei

Walk-Offs in Movies, TV, and Other Places

Note: I'm leaving this post up through the end of the week, a) because I don't have time to pump out something new and b)because I was hoping to build a really good list of entertainment industry if you're looking for something new, check back on Monday or so... Of course, if there's a major trade or move, I'll adjust and try to post something... In the meantime, click on the "Table of Contents" link as well. It has been updated. SPOILER ALERT: Read at your own risk Caught the ending of "A League of Their Own" on one of the movie channels the other day and it got me to thinking that it would be fun to compile a list of walk-offs from movies, television, and other forms of entertainment. Here's the start, and only the start, as I spent about 30 minutes or so thinking it over Help me fill in the blanks by filling out the comments section.
