One of the fun elements of the Queens Baseball Convention at McFadden’s Citi Field on January 18th will be the annual Mazzy Awards. (And boy if I get my dream-list moderator it will be cool).
So far Matt Harvey leads in fan voting for Mets Player Of The Year, with David Wright now catching up to Daniel Murphy for a horse race in second place.
The Award will be given out on the 18th (but it no way am I suggesting any of those folks will be there.)

Grab your tickets now, come have a fun day with a while bunch of fans, Ron and Ed…and be sure to vote for Mets Player of The Year!
Spread the word!
