Las Vegas 51s become the Las Vegas Aviators

Wait, a baseball team changed it’s name to something less stupid?  Is that allowed in 2018?   They aren’t the Desert Bandits or Las Vegas Cool Ranch Rabbits or something?   Aviators?  Nice.

Yes I am aware the Mets are no longer affiliated with the Formerly 51s, but it’s the weekend and I need content and you’re reading it.

Mets Police Morning Laziness: Winter Meetings Is Coming

SLACKISH REACTION:  While you guys sleep in every Sunday, I of course am out the door super early driving to far-away soccer. Enjoy writing could articles or signing former clients or whatever it is you guys do with your time.

As the Winter Meetings begin, be ready for a week of way too many speculation articles.  My haters will be out in force.

Another quiet morning, before the storm.

Congratulations to Atlanta on winning MLS.  That’s a really nice success story down there.  Wait until Manfred realizes the soccer team is more popular than the Braves…..which reminds me….I was at Youth Basketball Opening Day yesterday.   In a town where teams beg any able bodied kid to help fill out the baseball rosters, the gym was overflowing with basketball players.  Pay attention commish, the bill is coming due.

I played lots of video games (mostly Fifa) and watched Creed (one).  Creed is so fantastic and what a great performance by Stallone.

Enjoy your Sunday, I’ll be in the car.

The Dark Knight’s Return: here’s Matt Harvey’s pregame press conference

The Dark Knight’s Return

The Dark Knight returned to Queens.   Here’s his interview which is also embedded below.

In the interview he talked a lot about the injuries, the injuries, the injuries.  He also admitted to making mistakes when he was here (he gave a good quote, but my post crashed and I lost the exact phrasing.)

I don’t think ANYONE has been tougher on this guy than I have, but he handled himself well.

Clearly he was given talking points that HE WAS INJURED.  Mentioned this a lot.  A lot.  Like more than Todd Frazier mentions he is from New Jersey.  Matt also has the talking point now (in the August before his Free Agency) that he is healthy now.   “When I was injured” type language.

He was asked if he cried.  “Possibly, maybe.”
