Congratulations to Met fan Alex Rodriguez for his fantastic portrayal of a steak dinner for New York’s hungry media. Disappointed, and unwilling to accept Yohan’s elbow is fine, they needed a major injury to fuel their doomsday stories. If nobody got hurt soon, one of those reporters might have had to go trip a player on purpose to have something to write about. Lucky for the Mets, it was the Met fan in the Bronx who’s fallen and can’t get up. Naturally, now the Yanks are the team that’s in trouble/ might not make the playoffs/ have a terrible bottom of the lineup. All of the sudden now people notice that the closer is coming off surgery; the catcher is a huge question mark and the 2nd basemen pulled a Castillo last year. Thing is, just like it was when the Mets were “doomed”… it’s all crap. I just hate this negative energy no matter where it’s directed.
Introducing the The WMC (World Mets Classic)
The WMC (World Mets Classic) has gotten off the ground, as many different teams of Mets (supplemented by a few other players) take on Japan for the chance to be best the Met spring training squad of the year! Really, Jeff… you’ve made me agree with Michael Kaye for the first time in my life. This is a disgrace. Oh yea… Tatis is replacing ARod http://www.metsblog.com/2009/03/05/news-tatis-to-replace-arod-in-wbc/ . Of course he is.
This team need a strong arm in the front office; someone who is willing to say “No” when everyone else is to afraid to. Seriously guys, I volunteer. Don’t want me? Go ring Steve Keane http://www.kranepoolsociety.com/ and tell him you need someone to talk to Bud whenever he calls. How about Matt http://www.metsblog.com/ or is he too busy? I’ve got one! Patch all Bud calls to Met fan Scott Ferrell www.scottferrall.com and see if Bud ever wants to call back.
I’m torn on Petey. He’s a huge distraction and I get the feeling the team is better off without the circus in town. That being the case; if he continues to throw 91, how can you not think about it? It is after all unfinished business.
