ROUGH ON THE EYES BUT A WIN NONE THE LESS

Busy day as I’m having my wood floors refinished and I’ve moved so much furniture that I’m changing my name to Mayflower, plus I have to put together a practice plan for my team as it finally stopped raining but I’m sure the dirt infield at the park we practice at is full of puddles so it will be 90 minutes of “Fundi Drills” this afternoon.

As for last night a win is a win but that was a Susan Boyle win, dog-ass ugly.

I know Livan threw only 75 pitches but J-Man did the right thing going with Bobby Parnell in the 7th. For all the angst this team has given us the first month of the season the Parnell, Putz, Rodriguez back end of the pen has made every game with a 6 inning lead tilt in the Mets favor. I don’t think that’s it’s to much to ask for the starters not named Santana to give the Mets a quality start each time the take the mound.

I have to disagree with Mex about Castillo showing emotion on the field after making an error in the 8th inning haven’t we Met fans been clamoring for someone other than us to get pissed off?

I think I need Carlos Delgado to come to my practice today so I can yell out to him “TWO HANDS, ALL-STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

With all the hand wringing over Daniel Murphy’s defense has anyone noticed he is hitting .313/.379/.470. Plus the kid gets to the ball park 6 hours before game time taking fly balls and now he is also taking ground balls at first base so it’s about time we pat him on the back instead of jumping on it.

Only a matter of time before Gary Sheffield takes over as the regular right fielder.

Maybe J-Man is a master of motivation since the embarrassing pinch hitting episode in Miami Shrek has been on a tear. Maybe the flame has finally hit his ass.

The Oliver Perez situation is looking more sticky by the day. On one hand Omar Minaya looks gutless by having Scott Bora$ dictate how to him how to run his team and on the other, Ollie is such a fucking head case that maybe he is better off in the bullpen so Santana and the Carlos’s can be his caretakers not to mention he is fond of Old School Dan Werthen. If OP comes into a game a starts walking the ball park or gets shelled then it will be time for Omar to man up and take back his team from Agent Bora$ and do what’s best for the Mets and not OP.

Think I’ll wear my BELTRAN 15 jersey to practice today.

    Yeah, Church is going through a rough spot at the plate right now. But he’s hustling his arse in the field, and he’ll come around with the bat. Sheff hasn’t exactly grasped his opportunities with both hands. One HR and an interstate BA.

  2. Isnt it weird that the guy who is brought in to be the 5th starter is the guy who is supposed to eat up innings and he gets taken out after 75 pitches. On a bigger level, does that make any sense that the guy who is supposed to eat up innings is the WORST pitcher on the team, the one MOST likely to need bullpen help? The bullpen is so shot going through the 4 better starters that they are going to leave the guy most likely to get bombed (anyone see the graphic on Livans first time thru the lineup vs the rest?)and give the bullpen a rest. Doesnt it make sense that your best pitcher would have less need to use the bullpen? I would figure that you want your best pitcher in longer and your worst less. It makes no sense to me the way Jerry handles the pitchers.
