Random Thoughts - Woodstock, NJ Transit, Mets Roster Moves

This past week there has been much ado about the 50th anniversary of the World Champion 1969 Mets.  But August will mark the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival.  I just bought a 10 CD boxed set featuring music played there.  There will be a 38 CD set out in August which will be more comprehensive.  I must assume that the film will be re-released this summer.  A milestone anniversary is an excuse to make more money.

I must gloat every time I hear about a major delay on NJ Transit.  Yesterday there were no trains on the  Northeast Corridor Line for a few hours since an Amtrak work train was on fire near Trenton.  I heard on the morning news that 9 trains were canceled since engineers did not show up.  The governor says he is committed to improving the service, but I still hear about major delays.  Thank goodness that is all behind me.

The Mets activated relievers Jeurys Familia, Justin Wilson and Luis Avilan from the injured list and recalled infielder Luis Guillorme from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.  Relievers Brooks Pounders, Chris Flexen, Chris Mazza and Stephen Nogosek were optioned to Triple-A in corresponding moves.
The bullpen can only improve.  Familia has to be the biggest disappointment as he performed poorly after receiving $30 Million for 3 years.  I hope that Chris Mazza will return as he pitched well in his first major league appearance after a long minor league career.
