Countdown to Mets Fantasy Camp 38 Days to Go...
Every year for the last 3 years as Spring gives way to Fall, Mets season merges into NY Rangers season, I have been able to keep the baseball side of my brain occupied with thoughts of Mets Fantasy Camp. This year more so then ever, in the past I have simply gone down to cover the week long camp as a reporter, this season I am headed down to actually participate as a player. Each year I have tried to find unique ways of counting down the days until camp and sharing them with Mets fans, So this year I will do the countdown by Jersey numbers, When possible I will post my 3 favorite Mets who have worn that number, some numbers are harder then others.
First and foremost Vic Black is a NY Rangers Fan so right off the bat that moves him to the top of the list. He has been a guest on WLIE 540am SPORTSTALKNY, he has embraced NYC and all that comes with, I think we are going to see great things out of Vic in the future so, he moves to the top of the 38's. Here is the Vic Black Interview.
Just as I linked Dick Selma and Don Cardwell in my mind, I think I do the same with Skip Lockwood and Ron Herbal, Lockwood led the Mets in saves for 3 straight years , he was a very reliable pitcher on some pretty bad Mets teams, like Vic Black he was also a guest on WLIE 540am SPORTSTALKNY.on top of all that On top of that, his strat-o-matic card was nearly unhittable! Here is the Skip Lockwood Intervew.
Started off the listing with a hockey reference so will end the list with the Hat Trick , Dave Mlicki is the 3rd NY Met that wore #38 that has appeared on WLIE 540am SPORTSTALKNY. Obviously his crowning moment was his Shutout of the NY Yankees in the first interleague game played between the 2 teams at Yankee Stadium. Here is the Dave Mlicki Interview.
