DISREGARD THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN

Only the New York Mets could finish an 8 game home stand with 6 wins and have the fan base up in arms. Bad base running , lack of late inning hitting, and pitching failures have made our puss’s sour. Now we have a 10 game roadie that makes stop in San Francisco and a meeting with the  Great Lincicum, Brooklyn West (LA) and Boston, home of a team that I root for proudly and has the heart and soul of the many championships and champion players that have worn the shamrock, the Celtics (maybe someday D-Wright and Jose Reyes can grow up to be like Rajon Rondo and Big Baby Davis) that could be the difference between a great summer and a shitty summer on 126th and Roosevelt Ave.

 

Oh where oh where to start on my bitch and moan session on this team. First I’m ready to give Jose Reyes the nickname of Scarecrow (if he only had a brain) because he knows his base running is fucked up and he knows that he needs to use his head better but he still makes the most mind boggling blunders. At some point we have to drop the “he’s young and still learning” bullshit and admit that he is baseball retarded.

 

Same with Wright maybe it’s enough with the face of the franchise stuff and put a foot in his ass as well. I’m sorry for attacking the children like this but as I mention above I’m a fan of the Boston Celtics and watching two kids like Rajon Rondo and Big Baby step up like men when their team has been hit by injury after injury and they have stepped up and taken charge in this playoff series against the Magic. Of course it helps that Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are their to lead (Carlos Beltran is our Ray Allen) but Rondo and Big Baby (is there a better nickname in sports than a 6’7” 280 lbs man who is called Baby by teammates and fans?) have not once blinked when the game was on the line. Rondo has turned into Bob Cousy and Baby has not only hit big shots but he has played a physical game that has pussified the Magic. I want Reyes to be our Rondo and Wright to be our Paul Pierce unfortunately we don’t have a Big Baby (maybe Frankie Rodriguez) 

 

In the time honored tradition of being clueless about how to treat their injured players the Mets put Carlos Delgado and his bad hip on a cross country flight to then decided if he should go on the DL  Yeah I love this team!!!!!!!!!

 

Hey J J Putz why not draw a big “L” on your forehead as well. Putz claims he can’t get his adrenalin up when he comes into to pitch as a set up guy and not a save situation. The guy saved 15 games last year for a team that lost over 100 games. Really tough pressure situation there JJ how much adrenalin was oozing out you then?  Just shut up and pitch

 

 

Pro Baseball Central will be on tomorrow night  Friday May 15th at 9PM EDST as Joe McDonald and I will preview Mets-Giants and talk about the big 10 games road trip and other news and notes from around MLB

 

Sunday night at 7PM I will be join the guys at Seven Train to Shea as their guest.

 

I’ve been fired up like this since Dave Singer sent me this clip of Wally Backman addressing his team. I’m thinking of using this on Saturday before our Babe Ruth League game. Our game Saturday is at 8:30 AM and my son has warned all of his teammates not to even mention the early start to me as he did and got the whole “I walked though 10 miles of broken glass with snipers on the roof through the streets of Brooklyn in the dark to play ball you little candy ass” rant.
