August. How did it become August? The summer just started and now it feels like it's almost gone. All you would have to do is walk outside this morning and you will be reminded summer is still here and in full force. We have to get through the "Dog Days" and then we begin transitioning into my favorite time of year, but before that, there's still time to enjoy.
Actually, there's a lot to enjoy. Football training camps have started, but that can wait. I have a first place baseball team who is making moves to make sure they play into October. Just take a second to reread that last sentence. The Mets are in first place in August, and they went out and made some moves to upgrade to a major league lineup to go along with their tremendous young pitching.
This next month is going to be fun to watch. As a fan, they made the team better, especially after the debauchery of the Carlos Gomez trade that wasn't on Wednesday night to the terrible loss with rain delays on Thursday. To bounce back after that, to sweep the Nats, nonetheless, really shows me this team has the potential to be special. August is going to be fun.
Until next time.
