TODAY SANTANA BUT WHAT ABOUT MANANA?

Mets beat the Nats last night an all is forgiven until you realize that Johan Santana can’t pitch everyday and the big boppers at bat still can’t hit with RISP and did I mention they beat the Nationals?

Mike Silva have you been reading my mind again (really Mike that is one place you DON’T want to go) ? Watching Jesus Flores block pitch after pitch last night from Scott Olsen like it was a catching drill then hitting a 2 run bomb off Frankie Rodriguez in the 9th all I could think was how could Omar lose this guy in the Rule V draft? When the shitty deals that Minaya has made during his term here you hear about Heath Bell, Brain Bannister, and Matt Lindstrom but with the dearth of catching on the Mets (and in baseball) losing Flores may be Minaya’s biggest failure.

Sometimes I wonder if I give Mets management too much grief. Then I read something like this, and I think maybe I don’t kill them enough. How can you object to fans posting K’s for your Ace? OK so it was obstructing your precious advertising ribbon (Forget $iti this park should have been named PennySaver Field or YellowBook Field for all the adds around it) but isn’t there anyone with the last name of Wilpon that has an once of common sense and respect for their fans? What will it take for the Skill Sets to stop acting like pompous assholes when it comes to fan relations? A few games with 12 or 13,000 people in attendance? If the Skill Sets don’t think that could happen take at look in Baltimore where the novelty of the new ball Park wore off and now it’s a ghost town. A good burger and fires will only get you so far around here.

So J-Man now says he won’t ask for an eighth reliever to join the pen. I guess he realized that if you need eight arms in the bullpen who might run the words WE SUCK on those precious ad ribbons boards at $iti Field

Nelson Figueroa took a Valium and realized he ain’t as hot as he thinks he is and is shuffling of to Buffalo. Face it all you Figgy groupies, if your boy was any good he’d be wearing an Angels uni right now.

I’m going to the game tomorrow to bask in the near 90 degree temps but I think the Skill Sets Posse is after me so I will go to the game disguised as Hilda Chester this way they will never suspect a thing. Oh and I’ll ask the Hospitality Agents if Don Newcombe is pitching today.

  1. The Skill Sets will discover that it’s YOU and demand your tossing:

    Elitist SNOB $iti!

  2. Thank God for the Nats. They’re medicine for what ails us, for now. May be a different story when those F’ing Marlins come in.
