Let me join Ya Gotta Believe in saying I’m sorry to Carlos Delgado for wanting to run him out of town earlier this year. Who knew Del-GOD-o would turn around his season/career like he did? I didn’t that’s for sure but I got caught up in the rush hour a fellow starter to shower you with love and affection now you won’t look in my direction. But I want to make it up to CD how about after a game next week we hit the mobile taqueria on 108 St and have a little rice and beans and talk about our plans for October.


Word out of Flushing is that Mookie Wilson, Davey Johnson and Doc Godden have declined invites to the Last Day of Shea. I don’t care how pissed off these three are at the organization they should know that this day is not about the Skill Sets it’s about the Mets fans and the Mets players past and present. Sure Mookie is ticked off that he was not given a bigger role In the organization and that the Mets didn’t hold on to Preston Wilson or even bring him back to the team and the fact that fans like myself were angry with him about being decked out in Cardinal regalia during the 2006 post season, time burry the hatchet Mookie. Same with Davey the original bad ass has to realize he would be given a heroes welcome. And Doc, my god  with all the bullshit that he has been through in his life you would think he’s want to here the cheers from the crowd in the place where he made his name and fame? Maybe he loves the Highlanders so much because they are the biggest enablers around (see Martin, Billy former player/manager/violent alcoholic) and the Skill Sets tried in vain to get him on a straight path, whatever Gooden needs to be a Shea he heeds to feel the love from Mets fans Com’on Doc come home I’m not mad at ya.!  


As much as our bullpen makes us want to pull our hair out remember one thing, you will never here  “Now pitching for the New York Mets, Eric Gagne”  Gagne makes Aaron Heilman look like Cy Young


It is official the great exalted (and bloated ) Mike Francesa has pronounced the 2008 New York Highlanders dead!  To pay your respects, Suzyn Waldman will be sitting shiva in her home in Westchester.

    I never would have thought Del-Gotta-go would have turned into Del-God-o !! There is more than meets the eye here. He didn’t just get healthy all of a sudden once Randolf was fired.

    I wish Davey Johnson would come back to shea. i wish Mookie would too and Doc as well. Mookie was one of (if not the most) loved met ever. I know Davey would get a roar from the fans. As far as Doc goes, he put Met fans through the ringer with his drugs and injuries and we stuck with him through thick and thin. I will still never forget the day he first came back from his drug rehab and pitched relief. As he walked from the bullpen to teh mound, they say shea was never louder before or since. They kept showing camera views of the players in the dugout and they had looks of amazement on their face as Shea went into a frenzy to have Doc back. I’ve never seen such love for a player ever. How dare he turn his back on the fans, very disappointing.

  2. If that trio don’t show at Shea they will regret it the rest of their lives.

  3. Mookie is sour grapes??? How dare him wear the Cards jacket at Shea during the playoffs??? He is probably sour grapes that JOSE is going break all of his team leading records. The hell with MOOKIE as long as Lenny is there let mookie go climb a tree and get some grapes.
