The less said about yesterday’s game the better. Do I think Johan Santana is of sound body? HELL NO! Santana was asked if his problems of late are physical and he said no.  When asked a second time he said no, by the fourth or fifth time he finally broke down that he had an issue with his back that Bobby Ojeda said could have forced him to alter his delivery. Then there is the issue of his decrease in velocity and the question of whether Santana has a tired arm or (gulp!!!!!!) the dread DEAD ARM!!!.

Santana can claim he is fit to fight all he wants but why do I have a feeling he might accompany Gary Sheffield to New York Hospital for a special 2 for1 on MRI’s?    



This Date in Mets History, in 1969, Donn Clenedenon after turning down a trade from the expansion Montreal Expos to the Houston Astros, agreed to be traded to the New York Mets. Clink went on to be the 1969 World Series MVP

This Date in Mets History in 1983, The St. Louis Cardinals sent Keith Hernandez to the New York Mets after Mgr. Whitey Herzog had had enough of Hernandez and to teach him a lesson he was sent to the woebegon Mets. Hernandez who at first was miserable to be sent to NYC became the Captain of the Mets and lead the team to World Series Championship in 1986 and has become one of the most popular Mets of all time.



On This Date in Mets History in 1977 it was the Day The Music Died as The Franchise George Thomas Seaver, still the greatest player to ever wear a Mets uniform was sent to the Cincinnati Reds run out of town by to of the biggest scumbags to ever walk the earth in M. Donald Grant and Daily News baseball writer Dick Young. Seaver was and still is considered THE FRANCHISE and should have a staute of his famous pitching delivery outside of Ebbits$iti Field. Today Seaver, is a successful wine producer and Grant and Young are still burning in hell.
















With Bill Wags rehabing from Tommy John surgery, Ollie Perez in la la land and with sore knee, John Maine with dead arm and now questions about Johan Santana’s health do you think Rick Peterson is getting a good laugh and maybe some vindication?

  1. It disconcerts me that Johan’s Fastball has slowed considerably:

    Mets Medical Department Diagnosis:

    “Don’t Worry, Jackie, but Jack only has a slight flesh wound. He’ll be fine”;


  2. At least they retired Seaver’s number. Considering that they have no intention of ever retiring 17, and are playing around and waiting to retire 31 (love ya’ Johnny B. Goode, but it is not for you) And that 41 & 14 are the only Mets honored anywhere by the Dodger…oops, Mets franchise in the new ball park, Steve, don’t you think asking for a statue of the Franchise is a little crazy???? By the way, I reserve the right to change my mind on 31 if they put Piazza in the HOF as a Met. The only way to guarantee that they will retire Piazza’s 31 is if they put him in the hall as a Dodger.

    Why do we have a rotunda for a guy who never wore a Mets uniform and no statue for the guys who built the franchise? Simple statues of Seaver and Hodges is all we need.

    Oh, and another Keith Hernandez at 1b.

    Somewhere there is an empty Mets jacket, sleeves tucked into pockets. It stares at the field coldly analyzing the situation. It needs no owner.
