Binghamton Mets Change Team Name To Rumble Ponies

This happened Novemeber 3rd; not sure why it wasn’t already posted. Embarrassment?

The winning name submission came from Nicole, of Binghamton. Her inspiration for Rumble Ponies came from “The Carousel,” a children’s book written by Binghamton University professor Liz Rosenberg about carousel horses that sleep in the winter, but come to life in the spring. Nicole was awarded season tickets for life and the first home jersey produced for winning the Name the Team Contest.

The losing finalists were: Bullheads, Gobblers, Rocking Horses, Stud Muffins & Timber Jockeys.

Washington Post: Tom Boswell: Nationals, Mets Take Far Different Approaches In Care Of Young Arms

Boz examines pitching philosophies:

The Nats put the arms of Strasburg and Jordan Zimmerman, now a Tiger, ahead of short-term considerations. Those two are guaranteed to make more than $340 million in their careers. All five of the current young Mets starters combined, including Wheeler, are assured 1/30th of that. Is that exploitation? Do the Mets want to “win now” too much? Or the Nats too little?

Strasburg is 12-0, but it’ll take a few years to see how this turns out.
