While Dan Mavraides (above, left) made it out of training camp and signed a deal with Sidigas Avellino of Italy's Lega A, his contract is for just one month and his status once teammate Dwight Hardy's passport situation is resolved remains uncertain.
It was likely the last start of the season for Chris Young (4-9) on Saturday and while Young pitched six innings of two run baseball he still took the loss as the Mets were shut out by Atlanta, 2-0. Young concluded 2012 with a 4.15 ERA (3.72 in his last 10 appearances), proving his worth across 115 innings.
Saturday also marked 15 years to the day since Pete Carril was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Please note that today is October 1st, so all 2011-12 accounts have expired. I owe you all a "State of the Site" address, which I fully expected to have posted this morning but due to some unexpected time at the emergency room over the weekend due to my daughter contracting asthmatic bronchitis, it is running late. Look for it shortly, along with several new bells and whistles based on your suggestions. Thanks for understanding. If you wish to renew or subscribe for the 2012-13 season you can do so here.
