Daily Stache Featured on Cards Conclave


The following is a guest post from Cards Conclave, who recently asked The Daily Stache’s Michael Ganci to take part in its “Playing Pepper” series.

It’s one of the annual traditions here at C70 At The Bat, our trip around the majors in blog form.  Since 2009, I’ve been asking bloggers from other teams about what’s going to happen with their squad in the coming season.  It’s always fun to see what the opposition is thinking and how optimistic some of their most devoted and intelligent fans are.  This year, the Pepper series is brought to you by Out of the Park Baseball 16, coming soon for PC.  Preorder this outstanding baseball simulation today!

New York Mets
79-83, tied for second in the NL East

If it’s not one thing, it’s another with the Mets.  After spending a few seasons trying to get out from the shadow of the Bernie Madoff scandal and what that meant for team finances, they looked to contend in 2014, only to have Matt Harvey go down with Tommy John surgery.  And yet, even with that, they put up their best win total since 2010 and their highest finish in the division since 2008.  Which could only mean one thing: The Curse of Yadier Molina is a powerful one, y’all.

One of the great things about the New York teams is that there’s no shortage of folks that would like to talk about them.  Today, for instance, we have six different Mets bloggers to give us their insights on the blue and orange.  We’ll start off with Michael of The Daily Stache.  Michael’s actually going to do a similar project to Pepper during the season and I’m looking forward to our exchanges when the Cards and Mets get together.  Michael’s on Twitter @MikeGanci and the blog’s account is @dailystache.  Following him is Greg from Faith and Fear in Flushing.  Greg made his Pepper debut last year and is back for more.  He’s on Twitter @greg_prince.  After Greg, it’s our friend Paul from Paul’s Random Baseball Stuff.  You can find him on the Tweet box @Paul_Hadsall. (Paul’s also another big Star Wars fan, which is a plus in these parts.)
