Livan Hernandez pitched like shit again last night but after the game GM Omar Minaya said he is not swayed by Hernandez awful second half, in fact he is in the process of signing Livan to a three year extension. Minaya said “Look, right now Livan is struggling, I know that, you know that, Adam Rubin knows that, but he has a track record, so at the end of the day, you know what I mean, he has value for us as an organization plus his wife makes a mean paella”
In the Mets world of ugly, Frenchy Francouer is starting to look beautiful to some Mets fans but be warned, itâ€™s the lighting that makes him handsome when you get him home you will regret it. Donâ€™t be swayed by Frenchy, itâ€™s just lust in your heart, he is not the answer.
Hummmm letâ€™s see mow the lawn during the hottest part of the day or watch the Mets and Oliver Perez pitch ? I think Iâ€™ll mow the lawn and take my mother in law shopping !
I watched the Red Sox-Tigers game last night and yes I was very happy to see Youk charge the mound and even go extreme and throw his helmet at Jersey Rick Porcello ( I was waiting for the cage and ladder the come down on Fenway for an old time ECW throwdown) as it was not just the fact that Victor Martinez was hit by a pitch (in retaliation for Miguel Cabreara getting plunked on the hand) but this was the second game in a row Youk was HBP and add in the fact that the Sawx have been struggling lately it gave his team a lift. Yeah, thatâ€™s right bench clearers have a way of lifting the team same as a good beat down in hockey does. I know a lot you folks love to watch sports while knitting a sweater and like it when the fellaâ€™s play nice-nice but the truth is a big part of competition is intimidation. Thatâ€™s why our favorite baseball team is so disrespected because they are intimidated and need to grow some balls not just physically but mentally as well. This team, since that Adam Wainwright curveball to Carlos Beltran in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS has been neutered. From the owner to the front office to the players this is one passive bunch that has a disconnected with itâ€™s fan base and this city because we donâ€™t tolerate passiveness and excuse makers which is what the New York Mets are now.
Word to Jerry Manuel: Neither you or Gary Sheffield are coming back to the Mets next year. In fact if Sheff is re-signed I wonâ€™t be coming back to $iti Field next year same goes if Carlos Delgado is re-signed as well.
Word is that Billy Wags will be activated to the big league roster this Sunday and now the speculation begins, is it better to trade Wags before the 31st ? Or keep him and let him file for free agency and get a supplemental draft pick for him? Iâ€™d take the draft pick. Sorry Billy but itâ€™s a business decision.
Keep a good thought for Scott Schoenwiese as he tries to deal with his lifeâ€™s tragedy.
Iâ€™d say by the next two weeks most of the newspapers in this town will stop covering the Mets with more than one writer and in fact donâ€™t be surprised by the next road trip all you get is the AP game story. With the financial crunch and the fact that the NFL pre-season is starting the big stories in this town will be The Highlanders, The Giants, The Jets and The Highlanders. Unless something Bernazard like happens the Mets will be a fart in the wind to the fish wraps..
Â Most stories in sports don’t shock me anymore but I have to admit this story shocked the shit out me. I admired this guy but now he is just a no good scumbag
