Busy day as Iâ€™m having my wood floors refinished and Iâ€™ve moved so much furniture that Iâ€™m changing my name to Mayflower, plus I have to put together a practice plan for my team as it finally stopped raining but Iâ€™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 donâ€™t think thatâ€™s itâ€™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 havenâ€™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 Murphyâ€™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 itâ€™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 Carlosâ€™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 whatâ€™s best for the Mets and not OP.
Think Iâ€™ll wear my BELTRAN 15 jersey to practice today.
