I’m back from San Diego and boy did I have a blast. The All Star Game has inspired me to finish up the next baseball book and I had an amazing time attending workshops, talking with friends about work and life, and meeting new people at the RWA Conference. I’ll be sharing some photos tomorrow from all the events.
For today, since I’m in baseball mode, I’ve got sexy Giancarlo Stanton up at the plate. He might be a Mets killer with the might swing of his bat, but he is a hottie!

Have a great Monday!
Yes, I’m a Mets fan. I have been for some time. It’s hard to be a Mets fan, but I love the underdog.
Conforto is an amazing young player and such a cutie. He shows grace under pressure, can hit like a more seasoned player, and is a good outfielder. I’m looking forward to seeing so much more of him.
Plus, he’s only the third player in baseball history to have played in the Little League World Series, College World Series, and Major League World Series. Plus, as a rookie, he hit two home runs in a World Series game, a feat that hasn’t been done since 1996.
I’m happy to say I’ll be going to a game in a week. Against the Nationals which should be fun since the Mets and Nationals are battling for first.

My Amazin’ Mets may be in the midst of a pennant race with the Washington Nationals, but there is no denying that outfielder Bryce Harper is one delicious piece of Man Candy! Plus, he’s an amazing ball player. in 2012, Bryce was the first rookie ever chosen for the All-Star team and was the National League Rookie of the Year that year. Since then, Bryce has racked up amazing numbers and is considered one of the best in the game.

Wow, dare I believe? The Mets swept the Nationals and are now in a tie for first place. As much as I thought this was possible, having it be a reality is . . . Well, I’m a Mets fan. We are diehard optimists up until that very last day of the season. I even think that this year we’ll see some playoff action and who knows what else. Dare I dream of a World Series spot? You bet I will!
Part of the reason for that is a stable of talented young arms, including Jacob deGrom who pitched an amazing inning at the All Star Game, throwing only 10 pitches to retire the side. Wow. An All-Star record by they way. Not to mention that he was the National League Rookie of the Year last year!
