As a part of the Huffington Post's #TalkToMe series, Sammy interviews me. I do turn the tables on him a few times but you get to see a little into our world.
By Elyssa Kirkham, Finance Writer The 2016 Major League Baseball season opened April 3 with ...
What a difference a year makes. Last year during Spring Training in Port St. Lucie, Florida, the Mets were expected to contend with the cellar. The Nationals were predicted to win the National League East. Then something crazy happened on the way to last place -- they never reached it.
Dirk told us about his book at the South Dakota Festival of Books. David is a huge baseball fanatic, so the subject was of great interest to him. Dirk was fun, knowledgeable, smart and passionate, all wonderful ingredients for an author.
I certainly don't need a baseball team to validate who I am, but when they stand up for what is right it makes me stand taller with them. And again this year I will be cheering very loud and proud in Port St. Lucie as well as at Citi Field -- maybe even a little louder.
Most politicians stump. Donald Trump stomps, especially when he is stumped, as he was when he whined after he didn't know the difference between the Quds and the Kurds or when he lost the Iowa caucuses to Ted Cruz.
Last night was the 36th Annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner in New York City benefiting AHRC NYC. This year's event rememb...
Fact is Cespedes is a very good player and any team would be lucky to have him in the middle of their lineup. He will likely hit 25 homers and drive in close to 100 RBIs. But what he did in New York the last two months of the season was an aberration.

Everyone loves a comeback. The 2015 World Series was rife with them, with lessons in redemption in every game. If baseball is a metaphor for life, the...
For the past several weeks I have seen a multitude of stories from the wild world of sport that have struck me as something about which I wanted to write and set my brain whirring.
Before we get too upset at not winning the World Series, let us ask: Was there a Mets fan anywhere when the season began -- or in late July -- who wouldn't have been ecstatic with the team winning National League championship?
During Game 3 of the World Series Friday night, there will come a point bigger than the game itself. Potential will take on a new meaning when 50,000 people in a baseball stadium symbolically "stand up to cancer."
The series switches to New York. For the Mets, it couldn't have come at a better time. It is still early, but for any player with a pulse, it must be a gut check to have a squad beat your horses two nights in a row.
