EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – I must be doing something right to be pinch-hitting so regularly. Snide remark aside, I forewent(?) a couple of happenings last week so I could focus on my piece on the Mets. That said, today’s piece will revive some of the debate from last week.  Sticking with a a working […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – If you regularly pinch-hit enough are you a pinch-hitter? That’s my tree-falling-with-nobody-around question. Mull that over while I dive into today’s piece.

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – Do not adjust your computer; it really is Monday and there is no DJ Eberle. Pinch-Hit Matt has been called in to, um… pinch hit? I would have been up on Saturday but the Ax Man (Grinding Ax Walter Hynes) thankfully stepped up, as I was struggling with a hangover […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – I was suffering from a food hangover. It felt like I had a hangover but I hadn’t been drinking, so I assume it was the Popeye’s Chicken I ate. Regardless, I got the email to be Pinch-hit Matt again and as usual, I lived up to my name… well, because […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – These last two weeks have been ridiculous in terms of my non-MTM job. I was actually happy when I got the email to be Pinch-hit Matt again. I realized that other than this wonderful website, I hadn’t look at  a sports page in weeks. However, we’re back here together and […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – Parked the car and and grabbed my phone and saw the bat Matt signal ominously lighting up Mattville. The MTM signal fittingly is a text because “We ain’t rich!” What did the alert our fearless leader read? “Thanks for pitch hitting tomorrow.” Well, I actually wanted to be Pinch-Hit Matt, […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – My phone was vibrating like crazy. I looked down and saw it was an SOS call from our fearless leader, Short Matt. Someone needed to step in and pinch hit on Friday. I don’t know how many pinch-hits before I can get the title of Pinch-Hit Matt. After all, I […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – There is a saying about late deals being made. They occurr in the 11th hour, which means just before midnight… when most deadlines are set. In the words of the great Ron “Tater” White, “I told you that story so I could tell you this story.” And this story is […]
