THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL, IT’S NOT YOU IT’S ME AND JOSE REYES HAS A SORE CALF

Great win to start the road trip last night. John Maine steeled in nicely after a shaky first innings and he and Big Pelf have impresses be with their maturation on the mound this season by bouncing back after rough innings and pitching deeper into games.

 

I guess sore calf is a euphemism for benched for bone headed base running.

 

Mets Geek has a great piece on J-Man’s use (over use? miss use?) of the bullpen so far this season. One of the commentators made a good point that the Mets play so many close games that it dictates more bullpen moves than usual.

 

I stopped trying to figure out what management is thinking about with Carlos Delgado’ hip. It has cone from stiff, to sore, to a rip in a ligament , to arthritis, to total hip replacement okay we’re not at hip replacement yet but you know if he did need a new hip the Mets would still list him as day to day. Same with JJ Putz. The rumors were true that his was hurting for certain and now we find he has a bone spur on his elbow. No surgery is needed say the Mets which means the elbow was be hanging by a string. Not good not good at all. How can you start a 10 games road trip with just 23 players? Call up Baltimore or DC and see what the price is for Aubry Huff or Nick Johnson oh wait that would be a ballsy move by the GM gee I forget what team I root for a second.

 

This would be my lineup for tonight

 

Reyes SS

Castillo 2B

Beltran CF

Sheffield LF

Wright 3B

Murphy 1B

Santos C

Church RF

Hernandez P

 

Only reason I bat Church 8 is the lefty/righty scenario. Time to let Murphy play so 1st if he can handel it and start to hit leave him there as I am getting ready for the word that Delgado is done for the season. Of course I’m a pessimist there is no such thing as an optimistic Mets fan. If you think your one then you’re to damn young to understand it.

 

  

 

Don’t forget tonight PRO BASEBALL CENTRAL tonight at 9PM EDST and on the pod cast afterwards as Joe McDonald and I preview tonight Mets-Giants game and look at Tim Lincicum-Livan Hernandez tale of the tape. Plus I get to vent on all things Mets for this week Listen live here or on the podcast later here.

 

Also this Sunday night at 7PM EDST I will be a guest on Seven Train to Shea radio show so tune in and turn on!!!!!!

 

Get ready for an ass whipping on Sunday Orlando you will need more than “Magic” to beat the C’s in Boston in a Game 7.
