Me and Alyssa Milano

Two of your favorite baseball authors (although only one is winsome enough to get away with heretical trade proposals) will be featured on SNY's Mets Weekly Saturday May 2 at noon. Alyssa Milano will be talking about her Touch clothing line and I will surely touch on the book and blog known as Faith and Fear in Flushing, the latter of which you're reading right here and the former of which you can purchase via a fine bookstore near you or from just about any reputable online bookseller, including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. And just as Ms. Milano has written about her love of baseball, we, too, offer some pretty stylish shirts. (I heard a young girl shrieking excitedly in Alyssa's direction when she appeared at Citi Field two weeks ago, while I've been blessed to read many high-pitched responses to my own work recently.)

This same episode is scheduled to air again Sunday 5/3 @ 4:30 PM; Monday 5/4 @ 1:30 PM; and Thursday 5/7 at 1 PM.

    Did you get to work with the good Julie?
    Love her.

    Remember that ad from a couple of years ago when they'd pound the beer bottle on top of the TV and the shows would mash up? It would rule if that worked for this Mets Weekly.

    Just make sure not to touch Alyssa – you don't know (or want to know) where she's been….
    But WTG on being able to plug the book on SNY!

    Men can sleep with 50 women and they're heroes. A woman has a few well-publicized relationships, and she gets pilloried.
    Seriously, are we in the 1950's or something?

    Understood. But this one seems to break everyone she sleeps with.

    Well, the Mets offense didn't exist then either.

    Sorry, I thought the previous poster was an Icky Double-Standard Guy. and I got cranky.
    At least you should take some comfort that her book will be remaindered long before yours.

    Very eloquent – nicely done :)

    Hi Greg,
    Shows that the best things are always saved for last – as was Mets Weekly with your segment.
    Great job as always.
    Only disagreement with your all-time lineup was McReynolds instead of Cleon Jones circa 1969 in left.

    Thanks Joe. I definitely could have gone Cleon's way on that, but McReynolds really impressed me for that one year.

    Thank you on the eloquence and cuteness!

    Greg,
    Great piece on SNY – glad to see the book and blog get the press. Keep it up. When you met Allyssa did you ask her what Tony Danza was really like? Ha ha.
    As for the all time lineup, yeah what are you falling in love with McReynolds' one season for? But I'll take Cleon. Cleon gave us '69 and some other decent years, unfortunately he was hurt off and on and never quite met his potential. At least he was a Met. If you want to go on the basis of one season, I would go with Bernard Gilkey (96) before K-Mac who would rather be fishing than helping us beat the bucos.

    I'm a pretty hardcore non-fan of McReynolds, but I thought he had it goin' on in 1988 in every facet of the game. Was good enough to split the MVP vote with Straw and give it to Gibson (which doesn't make me like him any more). Gilkey…I know he had the RBI record (tying with HoJo), but I recall him slowing down as the year went on. I'd probably take Cleon over Gilkey given the context in which he did his .340 — and Cliff Floyd in 2005.
    Then there's Dave Kingman who hit 37 home runs in 1976 while occasionally catching a fly ball in left. Occasionally. So many candidates and none of them ideal, but I'll still go with K-Mac — though give Cleon all-time props if we're doing Mets careers.
