As I write this, the Phils are in the process of trying to avoid their first loss of the season while hosting the New York Mets. The Mets have gone through a few disappointing season the past years and hope to rebound in 2011. We have brought in Paul's Random Baseball Stuff to give us some info on the Mets 9.

I'm looking forward to seeing some new faces. The Can-Am League is
geared towards younger players than the Atlantic League, so even the
Bears should have a new look. The Bears are trying to start up a
cross-county rivalry with the , and the Rockland
Boulders will play their home games in Ramapo, N.Y. once their
ballpark is finished. None of the other Can-Am League teams are really
close to New Jersey, and you'd need a passport to go see one of them

5 out of 5. Jason Bay is one of those guys I root for despite being a Met and Paul gave us some good info on what is happening with the Newark Bears - We here at Team Phungo HQ will be looking forward to his Can AM league postings.
