As I was in the middle of my interview with Bill Reynolds last night on PRO BASEBALL CENTRAL, Raul Ibanez hit Ken Takahashiâ€™ pitch that was below his ankles out of the park Iw as ready to yell OH FUCK! But I kept my composure and concentrated on the interview but if you listen to the show you could tell after the Reynolds interview I tried to fill the last half hour of the show although I was shell shocked by the Mets again unable to hold a lead.
I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s just frustration or that there is in power struggle between J-Man and Omar but some of Jerry Manuelâ€™s moves have me puzzled. His choice of Fernando Tatis as and everyday player and burying Daniel Murphy on the bench is ridiculous. Tatis has been a great addition to the Mets but for Christ sake he â€˜s not Lou Gehrig, heâ€™s a very good utility guy who produces when used sparingly. Please, FREE DANIEL MURPHY at put him at first base. Same with Ryan Church can you leave the guy in RF? Let F-Mart platoon with Sheffield in LF because as great as Sheff has been heâ€™s is 40 years old and can not play every day.
So now John Maine joins the walking wounded with a “tired arm”. How much you want to bet this is another line of happy horseshit from Flushing ?
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Donâ€™t tell me that Nelly Figs is coming up for Maine. I donâ€™t care what Jon Neiseâ€™ numbers are in Buffalo bring him up and let him pitch and stop burying this kid. ENOUGH OF NELSON FIGUEROA already!
Youâ€™ll read no more criticism of D-Wright or Carols Beltran here as both of these guys have stepped up and gone above and beyond the call of duty. If I were managing a team against the Mets Iâ€™d never give either guy a pitch to hit Iâ€™d take my chances with the other six guys in the lineup.
