On the off chance that someday he might see it, feel free to say goodbye to Ramon in the comments section.

**tear sniffle sniffle** all those years with the team washed away for some guy nobody has ever heard of… its a shame…
5/29/2009-11:45pm at 11:45 pm (UTC -4)
wow..thats actually a creepy picture lolll
later castro…thanks for the memories..and the nicknames…and bubblegate…
5/29/2009-11:49pm at 11:49 pm (UTC -4)
oh bubblegate, how I’ll miss you
wikipedia is FAST: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ram%C3%B3n_Castro
5/29/2009-11:46pm at 11:46 pm (UTC -4)
Thanks for everything Ramon. Good luck.
5/29/2009-11:48pm at 11:48 pm (UTC -4)
lol with so many post in an half hour span i dont kno where to comment
5/29/2009-11:53pm at 11:53 pm (UTC -4)
lmao..thats how we get down over at TRDMB lol…we BLITZ ;p
Good luck Ramon. I’m not sure I agree with this trade.
this decision wasn’t necessary IMO. I hardly think fan base backlash should be a concern. Why not wait another month and see if Schneider can squat for a living or if Santos comes back to earth, like so many other guys we’ve seen come up, get hot, and then remember they were minor leaguers.
I think it’s great what Santos is doing, I’ll just be hopeful that it doesn’t bite us in the butt later on.
5/29/2009-11:55pm at 11:55 pm (UTC -4)
fortunately we are kind deep with cathers in rivera/cancel/thole. Everyone goes through hot and cold periods but omir imo puts together better ab’s than castro did.
this is the most disappointing roster move in the past 4 years…
5/29/2009-11:58pm at 11:58 pm (UTC -4)
what about adding Ollie back to the 25 mam isnt that disappointin
5/30/2009-12:04am at 12:04 am (UTC -4)
not really at the time…

Oye muchacho, si tu Castro, escucha paca no lo coja de pecho tu fuiste bueno pero es que el muchacho es mejor. Tu sabes que ahora tu puedes jugar contra los yankees y darle palazo a todo lugar. Y tu sabes que Ozzie Guillen es una hodienda.
I wonder how they’ll take bubblegate on the North Side
5/30/2009-12:01am at 12:01 am (UTC -4)
Hey you, yeah you Castro, listen up donâ€™t take it to heart you was good but the kid is better. You know now you can play against the Yankees and hit the ball to no ends. And you know that Ozzie Guillen is da $hit.
5/30/2009-12:08am at 12:08 am (UTC -4)
according to freetranslation.com:
It hears boy, if your Fort, Paco listens not the lame thing of chest your you were good but he is that the boy is better. Your you know that now your can play against the yankees and to give him palazo to every place. And your you know that Ozzie Guillen is a hodienda.
5/30/2009-12:09am at 12:09 am (UTC -4)
LoL Spanglish in full effect
5/30/2009-12:10am at 12:10 am (UTC -4)
Here’s what google translate said:
Hey kid, if your Castro, listen paca not take your left breast is good but the boy is better. You know that now you can play against the Yankees and give palazo any place. And you know that Ozzie GuillÃ©n is a hodienda.
5/30/2009-12:11am at 12:11 am (UTC -4)
Wow that’s pretty accurate but the meaning of some words are lost in translation.
[Off Topic] Why is it I never see The Real Dirty Mets Blog posts show up in SportSpyder?
I don’t know how one becomes a part of their system. I believe TRS has sent them multiple emails, more than that I don’t know.
5/30/2009-12:18am at 12:18 am (UTC -4)
Apparently all you do is submit your website at this link
5/30/2009-12:19am at 12:19 am (UTC -4)
Holy Jeebus really?
Thanks Mr. NJ!
5/30/2009-12:16am at 12:16 am (UTC -4)
But there were 2 reasons I did this post:
1). To use this picture that I realized I was no longer going to be able to use
2). To see “Adios Amigo” float by on the Sportspyder ticker.
Oh yeah, and 3). To say goodbye to Ramon Castro.
ewwwww, did everyone elses links just turn orange? im sorry but blue is much, much better
5/30/2009-12:24am at 12:24 am (UTC -4)
Mine are still blue
5/30/2009-12:26am at 12:26 am (UTC -4)
mine are orange with a blue background instead of white
5/30/2009-12:27am at 12:27 am (UTC -4)
Still playing, maybe it can be request night if I can figure out what the hell I am doing.
5/30/2009-12:29am at 12:29 am (UTC -4)
ok, i just dont want this site to look to cheesy like yes joe, its toasted…
I thought the other was too much gray, any suggestions while I am dealing with code?
5/30/2009-12:32am at 12:32 am (UTC -4)
Only potential issue I see with this is the scoreboard is now blue on blue.
5/30/2009-12:33am at 12:33 am (UTC -4)
That it is grave and I don’t know if that is fixable so back to the drawing board.
this is actually nice, but can you change the link color on nleastchatter?
5/30/2009-12:31am at 12:31 am (UTC -4)
I cleared my browser and now I’m getting the orange on blue thing. I like it. I think the inverse would be gaudy.
5/30/2009-12:28am at 12:28 am (UTC -4)
well, the guy was a backup and he got beat out by another backup…
the true question is schneider really a backup and will HE get beat out by a backup?
5/30/2009-12:39am at 12:39 am (UTC -4)
I kinda liked the way it was.
ok, these colors are real dirty, its just the scoreboard still screwin it all up
5/30/2009-12:42am at 12:42 am (UTC -4)
Scoreboard still has slight issues.
5/30/2009-12:43am at 12:43 am (UTC -4)
Fred Wilpon keeps emphasizing the Dodgers aspect, this color scheme captures the Giants nicely.
5/30/2009-12:45am at 12:45 am (UTC -4)
LOL, I know, any suggestions grave?
5/30/2009-12:49am at 12:49 am (UTC -4)
I forgot to mention, if you click on the scoreboard it opens up kind of a “live box score” that is black.
If the scoreboard is unchangeable (color wise) then we may have to go with a fairly light color along the border so that the scoreboard in both of it’s forms is legible.
5/30/2009-12:54am at 12:54 am (UTC -4)
5/30/2009-12:57am at 12:57 am (UTC -4)
This works. It’s lightened up enough so that I can read the scoreboard in both it’s forms.
Is the orange too hard to read? maybe a little lighter?
5/30/2009-1:00am at 1:00 am (UTC -4)
depending on my angle looking at the monitor it can look a bit fuzzy on the grey, but still legible.
Also up this thread Mr. NJ posted a link to signing up with SportSpyder, which I copied and emailed to you as well.
If your interested in MLB Team colors through the years this site is pretty detailed
5/30/2009-1:01am at 1:01 am (UTC -4)
Ah my tech guy is here. I just thought the other was too much gray. Can you help me out a little?
5/30/2009-1:04am at 1:04 am (UTC -4)
anything i can do guys?
Uh yeah it’s 1:00am and I am having a color crisis.
5/30/2009-1:09am at 1:09 am (UTC -4)
lol i emailed you
That new orange is definitely clearer, eliminates that slight fuzziness I saw in the previous one.
5/30/2009-1:05am at 1:05 am (UTC -4)
That damn score board keeps screwing things up. Now a clicked link turns purple. Who the hell designed those colors?
5/30/2009-1:06am at 1:06 am (UTC -4)
where did you go to edit the code?
long story, it’s on the Theme part under editor. I had to do a little, very little, research on code to even change it. I just thought it was WAY too much of the same gray.
5/30/2009-1:13am at 1:13 am (UTC -4)
I dont think you need me at all real..it looks very well done..good job
5/30/2009-1:08am at 1:08 am (UTC -4)
On my monitor it’s still perfectly visible, even though it turns once you’ve activated it.
Yeah, purple right?
5/30/2009-1:10am at 1:10 am (UTC -4)
5/30/2009-1:12am at 1:12 am (UTC -4)
That won’t work.
Did you like the black and orange, forgetting the scoreboard, or was that to SF.
5/30/2009-1:07am at 1:07 am (UTC -4)
Trs the color looks good I kinda like the darker orange you had earlier but I hear it looked kinda fuzzy,
The darker orange was IMO a more Met appropriate orange but it either actually or through an illusion made the letters a little less clear. Especially the SportSpyder thread looked jumbled I thought.
5/30/2009-1:11am at 1:11 am (UTC -4)
Yeah, it was fuzzy. I had to go with a lighter color to match the lighter sidebar color too. We may just need to find another scoreboard widget.
yeah that purple when you click on the widget blows
5/30/2009-1:16am at 1:16 am (UTC -4)
suggestions on color?
5/30/2009-1:17am at 1:17 am (UTC -4)
Potential scoreboard widget link below
Is it important to us, as a Met site, to be Orange & Blue? Cuz if so, we may just have to either part with or find a different scoreboard that would be visible.
Or, could you dare try Orange borders with blue links? Might be blinding.
5/30/2009-1:15am at 1:15 am (UTC -4)
Orange, Blue, Black, White, Cool Grey, Warn Grey, Dark Grey, and Brick
these colors and shades between are colors to consider
LOL, but can you get me those colors in code?
5/30/2009-1:19am at 1:19 am (UTC -4)
My bad gimme a sec
5/30/2009-1:28am at 1:28 am (UTC -4)
Almost grave. too damn wide.
5/30/2009-1:31am at 1:31 am (UTC -4)
how wide does it need to be?
5/30/2009-1:33am at 1:33 am (UTC -4)
LOL who the hell knows?
5/30/2009-1:35am at 1:35 am (UTC -4)
5/30/2009-1:38am at 1:38 am (UTC -4)
It cant be more than 200 pixels wide
5/30/2009-1:32am at 1:32 am (UTC -4)
Yeah, crap I liked that one. I don’t know how to tell the width, but here’s a fox sports one I found.
Sorry I’ll stop now they just keep growing! I guess the original one may be OK depending on what color scheme you ultimately go with.
5/30/2009-1:39am at 1:39 am (UTC -4)
Also I’m sorry to keep mentioning this but Mr. NJ kindly supplied a sign up link for SportSpyder which is up in this thread and I also copied it and emailed it to you TRS
5/30/2009-1:41am at 1:41 am (UTC -4)
Yeah, actually we are already on there if you will go to that page and choose available blogs. Now why we don’t appear in the top 10 HL, I have no idea.
How do you like the scoreboard?
5/30/2009-1:49am at 1:49 am (UTC -4)
Oh OK I’ll have to reset my SportSpyder settings sorry.
I like the scoreboard. Did you click on “final” it opened a new page in my browser with the boxscore, game notes, player news. I love it!
5/30/2009-1:57am at 1:57 am (UTC -4)
OK I reset my SportSpyder bookmark settings to “all sources” and there we were. Superb! Someone actually gave this thread a +1 rating. Now I can sleep peacefully.
5/30/2009-1:25am at 1:25 am (UTC -4)
BLUE – #165788
Dark Gray – #363534
Orange – #ff7f45
Brick – #8a343d
Cool Gray – #adafaf
Warm Gray – #d5d2ca
White – #ffffff
Black – #000000
5/30/2009-1:44am at 1:44 am (UTC -4)
Ok I fixed the scoreboard. How about this Mr. NJ. I am going to leave the colors as is before my wife comes down and smashes the computer. I am going to give you admin access and if you want to play around with the color’s feel free. It’s under theme, edit and then the two pages you have to edit are Style sheet and blue2.
5/30/2009-1:46am at 1:46 am (UTC -4)
Nice scoreboard way cool. Ok I will see what I can come up with.
5/30/2009-1:50am at 1:50 am (UTC -4)
Damn whats that sound? Oh, its the sound of a whip cracking! haha! Just kiddin! Man, what a game! Nice knowing you Ramon. From your nagging injuries to your large chin, you will always be respected as a New York Met. All the best.
5/30/2009-8:57am at 8:57 am (UTC -4)
Good bye and good luck to you, Ramon.
Thanks for the memories.
5/30/2009-9:04am at 9:04 am (UTC -4)
Morning 4D. What do think about the colors?
5/30/2009-10:08am at 10:08 am (UTC -4)
real…this looks AWESOME!
