Opening Day is ALMOST HERE!
OK kids - BMF is evolving into a more of a video site.
I’ve assembled an elite team of passionate, intelligent & generally hilarious Met fans who will rip off short videos ranting about our beloved Mets.
There will be about 4 or 5 “BMF Ranters” that will post whenever the urge strikes so we hope to have new content at least 5x / week.
Eventually we hope to open up to new open submission “Fan Rants” but we’re not up to that just yet.
We’re gonna keep ‘em short and sweet, hope to entertain and generate comments in the threads.
Pretty much anything goes so your guess is as good as mine re: what’s about to happen.
Give us a chance to get our feet under us as I’m sure we may have some rough sledding at first before we find out stride.
So without further adieu here is BMF Ranter Heath and his pre-season thoughts:
BMF ain’t dead yet!
In fact we’re re-launching with primarly video content on Opening Day.
The concept is simple: short Video rants from an elite team of the funniest, angriest, most entertaining die-hard Met fans out there.
We’re working on the details now and will be back with a vengeance on Opening Day so stay tuned!!!!
After 7 years of BMF blogging I’ve come to a crossroads.
Those of you who have been regulars for years know that I used to put 2-3 pictures up with every post back when I had dreams of starting a blogging empire… (for a short time there were even 2 football blogs BrooklynJetFan and BrooklynGiantFan)
But although my Met passion hasn’t waned BMF has definitely been in decline for the last couple of seasons. Not the comments from the always intrepid BMF’ers, but rather my attention and effort put forth into the site.
My “other” passion has been film and tv production something I’ve been working tirelessly on for the past … Ummm… 20 years (!) — holy crap that’s crazy to write.
Anyway after trial and error creating, producing and directing my own feature film, mobile content and pilots for TV I’ve finally found a niche with NYC High School sports docuseries. “City Gridiron” is the show and essentially I follow the top football players in the PSAL ( Pub Sch Athl League) as they compete for the City Championship and get recruited by colleges.
You’ll prob be surprised to know we play good football here in Brooklyn and NYC having sent kids to Notre Dame, Florida, Miami, Clemson and Syracuse the last 4 years.
Anyway I’m not sure what to do with BMF I don’t have the energy to do it right these days and it deserves better than 2012 when it was running on fumes.
So I’m opening the floor to ideas. If you have any ideas on how the site should go forward or you want to be a regular writer on BMF please email me at BrooklynMetFan@yahoo.com.
Aside from that BMF thinks we dodged a bullet by missing out on Michael Bourn. The guy is a 1 trick pony - SB’s and runs, OK that’s 2 tricks and he’s improved his average the last couple of years but he’s not worth parting with a 1st round draft pick to be on the hook for 12M /year for 4 years.
I realize there’s no one else to play the OF but we have to look beyond this season. We’ll be lucky to finish ahead of the Fish in ‘13 so let’s not commit a contract to a speed guy through his 34th b’day. He’s exactly the type of player that would tank / get hurt as a Met…. But I’m sure he’ll dominate in Cleveland.
***BMF has obviously been on an extended vacation from BMF’ing of late. I’ve been up to my neck in production on City Gridiron - my NYC HS Football TV show. This may be a light blogging winter but BMF will be back in full swing when baseball season rolls back around***
Assuming Toronto inks RA to an extension and doesn’t find anything amiss in the physical I think this is a great move for the Mets. We need cheap impact players and we’re not realistically gonna compete on 2013 so why keep an aging player whose trade value will never be higher?
Of course it’s a joke that our team parted ways with a batting champ and a Cy Young winner in back to back years, and it’s bizarre they’re about to be playing together, but lest we forget these are the Mets. The smallest market / Big market team you’ve ever seen.
If our favorite team had competent ownership we wouldn’t need to watch our fan favorites depart in back to back seasons. But considering the Wilponzis lack of business acumen we simply don’t have the money to pay star players, even the homegrown ones.
So please don’t mistake BMF endorsing this move as my being happy with the organization. I’m not. But things being what they are this is a prudent move. I personally tend to believe the whispers that the Wilponzis have no money and we simply can’t afford to keep Dickey.
Travis d’Arnaud is supposed to be a beast of a catcher. Good defensively but prolific at the dish. I’m less than thrilled that he’s working with a surgically repaired knee (afterall he is a catcher) but if he pans out we may have just added the next Buster Posey.
The young hurler we’re getting Snydergaard is a nice chip too. I never heard of him but they say he’s the 3rd best prospect in the Jays organization.
Either way it’s another sad day to be a Met fan.
Well, we didn’t win much this season but RA Dickey defied the odds and took home the NL Cy Young Award for best pitcher in the league.
It’s a rare feat for a Cy Young to be awarded to a pitcher on a crappy second division team like the Mets. To me Steve Carlton was the poster boy for this feat as he won his 1st Cy Young in ‘72 despite playing for a last place Phillies team that lost 97 games.
The Mets weren’t quite that bad but it’s still a tremendous feat for RA to pull off. I guess playing in NY helped his cause since his story was much more out there than it would have been if he were playing in KC but on the flip side I wonder if there’s any backlash towards the inept Mets in the baseball writers voting committee.
I guess the story of RA was just too good to be ignored. The guy pulled himself off the scrap heap after sputtering out in the Majors by learning a knuckler and coming all the way back to dominate and wear the greatest pitching crown there is.
Tremendous to see a knuckle baller take home a Cy Young because it’s a victory shared by all knucklers. These chosen few men who threw it in the bigs are a tight fraternity and I’m sure they’re all celebrating tonight.
I have to wonder how many knuckleballers are there in the Minors? I mean how many guys toil with that pitch and never solve it? You never hear about a promising minor leaguer who throws this junk pitch. I guenot a knuckle-baller isn’t really a buzz-worthy prospect because the guys throwing it have generally turned to the knuckle ball as a last resort when they couldn’t get guys out with their normal stuff.
I wouldn’t be surprised if a new generation of pitchers begin toying with the knuckle ball at a much younger age now.
