The Mets / Phillies game was rained out tonight, so I think I'll watch this a few dozen times.

Last night's Mets comeback win over the Phillies - down 7-1 in the last inning, the Mets score 7 times for an 8-7 win.

~ TYLOR MEGILL started, pitched the first 5 innings; struck out 5, walked 3. He was the winning pitcher, now 4-0 (perhaps the best pitcher in baseball right now). He threw 88 pitches.
~ DREW SMITH pitched 1 1/3 innings (the 6th inning and the first out of the 7th); struck out 4, walked 1. Threw 36 pitches.
~ JOELY RODRIGUEZ pitched 1 inning (the 2nd and 3rd outs of the 7th inning and the first out of the 8th); walked 2. Threw 17 pitches.
~ SETH LUGO pitched 2/3 of an inning (the 2nd and 3rd outs of the 8th inning). Threw 5 pitches.
~ EDWIN DIAZ closed the game, pitching the final inning (the 9th); 3 strikeouts. He picked up his 4th save of the year. Threw 13 pitches.

The Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0. They are now 15-6, the best record in baseball.

Mets 5, Cardinals 2 (Final Score) on MLB Gameday

That was fun last night in Saint Louis! The Mets! What's going on with the Mets?!

~ They are off to a 13-5 start and are in first place in the National League East with a 4 1/2 game lead.
~ 13-5 is the second best record in all of Major League Baseball and 13 wins is the most for any team.
~ Their .256 team batting average is tied for third best in baseball. ~ They have 155 hits, by far the most in the majors,
~ They have scored 86 runs, tied for most in the majors.
~ The pitching staff's 2.74 ERA is MLB's fourth best.
~ Collectively, Mets pitchers have 183 strike outs, by far the most in the majors (15 more than the number two team).

Last night's incredible come from behind win over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium was one of the most amazin' comebacks for the Amazin' Mets in recent memory. Losing 2-0 with two out in the top of the 9th inning, the Mets suddenly erupted for 5 runs to steal a 5-2 victory from the first place (National League Central) Cardinals, who dropped to 9-6 with the loss. A 1 out, Eduardo Escobar single and a steal of second base was followed by a 2 out single by Mark Canha, assisted by an uncharacteristic error by Cardinals third baseman, Nolan Arenado. Canha's hit brought home Escobar with the Mets first run of the game. 2-1 Cardinals lead; 2 out and a runner on first base. The speedy pinch runner, Travis Jankowski, replaced Canha on first before Jeff McNeil then doubled putting runners on second and third. Dominic Smith came off the bench to pinch hit for Tomas Nido and hit a ground ball to Cardinals' first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who made a terrific play to field the ball. But with Smith running hard to first base and Cardinals relief pitcher, Giovanny Gallegos, slow to cover first to catch Goldschmidt's throw, Smith was safe at first with an infield single that scored both Jankowski and McNeil, putting the Mets in the lead, 3-2. The Cardinals removed reliever Gallegos and brought in T.J. McFarland to pitch. Brandon Nimmo blasted McFarland's first pitch into right field seats for a 2 run homerun (Smith scoring ahead of Nimmo), completing the 5 run 9th inning and sending the Mets to the 5-2 victory.

That was fun, let's watch it again!! Lotsa highlights here!

The B-52s Will Board Up the Love Shack After Farewell Tour This Year

Yet another veteran rock act is calling it quits.

The tour will ramp up five weeks later on September 29 in Mashantucket, Connecticut and continue through Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, two nights in New York City, Atlantic City, three shows in Las Vegas, two in San Francisco, Los Angeles and their final show will be November 11 at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, near their hometown of Athens, Georgia.

The New York City dates will be October 13 and 14 at the Beacon Theatre. KC and the Sunshine Band will open most of the shows, with the Tubes opening in Seattle and San Francisco. There will be no opener in Las Vegas.

Look for the B-52s on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tomorrow night.

The band also announced their much anticipated documentary will be released in early 2023.

The B-52s - Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson and Keith Strickland, plus Ricky Wilson, who died in 1985 - formed in 1976 in Athens, Georgia. In 1979, they debuted with their album, "The B-52's", which featured "Rock Lobster", "Planet Claire" and "Dance This Mess Around". "Wild Planet", with "Private Idaho", "Give Me Back My Man" and "Party Out Of Bounds", followed in 1980. Two EPs followed the first two albums - the remix collection, "Party Mix!", in 1981 and "Mesopotamia" in 1982. 1983 saw the release of the third album, "Whammy!", followed by "Bouncing Off The Satellites" in 1986, "Cosmic Thing", which included "Love Shack", in 1989 and "Good Stuff" in 1992. The band released what would be their final studio album, "Funplex", in 2008. The live albums - "With The Wild Crowd! Live In Athens, GA", 2011, and "Live! 8.24.1979", 2015 - plus numerous compilations were issued, as well.

Rock & roll greats also confirm career-spanning documentary will arrive early 2023

Islanders legend Mike Bossy dead at 65

New York Islanders legend, Mike Bossy, has died. He passed earlier today at the age of 65. Mike was battling lung cancer.

Mike played his entire ten year career with the Islanders - from 1977-78 until 1986-87, and was a key part of the Islanders’ four consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1979-80, 1980-81, 1981-82 and 1982-83. In 1983-84, the Islanders “drive for five” fell short, as they lost in the finals.

Islanders legend Mike Bossy, whose scoring touch helped drive the franchise to four straight championships, died after a battle with terminal lung cancer. He was 65. Bossy’s diagnosis became public…

Nick Lowe - “So It Goes” (Official Music Video)

Random Monday morning post:

NICK LOWE “So It Goes”. From 1976, this was a single marking the beginning of Nick’s solo career, following the breakup of the band Brinsley Schwarz.

In this video, we are watching the band Rockpile - with Nick on bass and vocals, Dave Edmunds and Billy Bremner both on guitar and Terry Williams (who would join Dire Straits in 1982) on drums. On the recording, it was just Nick on bass and guitar and Steve Goulding, of the Rumour, on drums. “So It Goes” was part of Nick’s first solo album, 1978’s “Jesus Of Cool”, a variation of which was issued in the U.S. as “Pure Pop For Now People”.

Cutting Vinyl At Abbey Road

I find this stuff so fascinating! Everything about the process of cutting a vinyl record blows my mind. But, despite finding it fascinating, I don’t think I could be a mastering engineer. My OCD and perfectionist tendencies would make the process torturous for me. It would take me a week to do one cut! My quest for the perfect this and the perfect that would put me in an asylum! I remember how manaical I would be recording my records to cassettes at home. Are the recording levels perfectly balanced? Are they too high? Are they too low? Is there too much “red”? “This song is much louder than the first one and the recording levels are pinning too much in the red!! Lower the recording levels slightly and start over from the beginning!! NO!! Too low, start again........."

Check this out. Very cool.

Bobby Rydell -
Rock and roll singer, actor and 1960s teen idol, Bobby Rydell, died earlier today from pneumonia at the age of 79. Bobby would have celebrated his 80th birthday later this month, on April 26. Robert Louis Ridarelli was born in 1942 in Philadelphia. His biggest hits were “Wild One” (1960), “Volare” (1960), "Forget Him” (1964), “Swingin’ School” (1960), “We Got Love” (1959) and “The Cha-Cha-Cha” (1962). Rydell starred in the 1963 film adaptation of “Bye Bye Birdie”, alongside Janet Leigh, Ann-Margret, Dick Van Dyke and Maureen Stapleton.

Paul Siebel -
Folk rock/country singer songwriter, Paul Siebel, died early today at the age of 84. Siebel was born in Buffalo, New York on September 19, 1937. Siebel is best known for other artists' versions of songs he wrote. These covers were recorded by the likes of David Bromberg, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Jeff Walker, Leo Kottke, Plainsong (featuring Ian Matthews), Kate Wolf, Mary McCaslin, Willy DeVille and more. His debut album, “Woodsmoke And Oranges”, was released by Elektra Records in 1970 and featured David Bromberg. Siebel followed that in 1971 with “Jack-Knife Gypsy”, also issued by Elektra. The second album featured contributions from Clarence White, David Grisman, Doug Kershaw, Bernie Leadon, Buddy Emmons, Russ Kunkel and more. “Jack-Knife Gypsy” would be the last studio album he would release. He stopped writing songs in the early 1970s, but he started a comeback of sorts with “Live”, issued in 1980, which was recorded with David Bromberg and Gary White at McCabe’s in Los Angeles in June 1978. Late in life, Siebel worked as a baker and for the Maryland Parks Department.
