SEE SPOT RUN

The idea of the slider is to fool the batter that it’s a fastball but then when it breaks the way it should (like down and away or down and in) it should it is an extremely effective pitch but it is also a high risk, high reward pitch especially when Pedro Feliciano throws it.  So today Feliciano took a risk and threw a slider to a couple of guys Brad Asmus and Darin Erstad who had five HR’s combined coming into the game and instead of just challenging both batters Feliciano goes with sliders which hung just enough over the middle of the for both batters to tee off and take him long. As the Bobby Valentine always says, Proper preparation prevents piss poor performance, that saying should be hung in Pedro Feliciano’s locker.

I have to say I love that the Shea in game staff was hip enough to play the Dropkick Murphy’s when Daniel Murphy comes to bat, I am curious if he chose that or not.

Today I was in beautiful Bay Ridge Brooklyn and as we were walking on 5th Ave I passed a sporting goods store named LEDGENDS. They had a rack on the side walk of MLB baseball jerseys on sale for 10 bucks. No bullshit these were like $200 jerseys with names and numbers sewed on for 10 bucks. The problem was most were Cardinal jerseys with Scott Rolen and Jim Edmonds names on them so they were out. There were Red Sox road jersey with RAMIREZ on them so no go there either as were the Cubs, Phillies and the Mets Tom Glavine top. But there was one that caught my eye and after a lot of thinking and putting it back, picking it up, putting it back, I said “ah what the hell I got to take this for 10 bucks” it’s a home pinstripe Mets with 44 MILLEDGE on the back For a double fin I’ll represent for my boy LMILLZ.

  1. He has a bad habit of throwing those hangers. He NEEDS a good swift boot in the arse.

  2. The loss was bad enough, but watching the Dodgers piss that one away last night produced several louds “MFs” from my mouth. They were an out away in the ninth, and let the Cheesesteaks tie it. The LA loads the bases with no out in the 10th, and they don’t score. So, likely that The Mets will not have a division lead when they travel down the pike tomorrow. I was hoping that maybe, just maybe, this would not be painful. I was wrong.

  3. Frank from Jersey says:

    I liked LMillz a lot when he was a met even when others were bashing him but when he went to the Nats and started talking trash, I was done with him.

  4. I suspect those Manny shirts will sell again after he’s done playing – as long as he doesn’t go to the Bronx at the end of this year. I might have bought those with a view to selling them on eBay in a few years.
