Some notes from yesterday
Putz is trying to find motivation for the 8th…as he told Boomer and Carton that you don’t have the “heart pounding sensation” in the 8th. He’s wondering where the 2-3 mph are on his fastball went? Even though he littered the interview with words that made it seem he’s happy to be here, I still wonder if he has the right attitude deep down. I appreciate the honesty, but you’re paid a small fortune to pitch one inning and not being able to find inspiration shouldn’t be an issue.
There is no way Putz is here pitching the 8th next year.
I’m surprised Boomer & Carton had time for sports with their unlistenable endless segments featuring housewifes and assorted mockable shtick.
Metsblog points out that in the Bergen Record, Bob Klapisch says, “So far, the Mets faced only one superior team, the Cardinals, and ended up getting swept.” I didn’t realize Bob Klapisch was an idiot. The world champions just got swept Bob.
Reyes needs to play smarter, but I wonder if it’s something he can work on or if it’s just that he’s special? Really, there’s evidence to show that Jose is on the short bus and he might not ever be able to make great in game choices. That or he’s not taking things seriously enough. I smell a poll!!!
The team had nice fight yesterday and in those kind of games, any small issue will break you. Jose watched his double fly like a bystander watching a plane at La guardia and for that he might have missed a triple. Who needs a tie game when you can watch a homer from the best seat in the house right Jose??. Other than that, it’s hard to fault a team too much when it battles like that. Did I just say they battled? Wow… I pulled a Willie.
