LETS’ TAKE ATTENDENCE…..JASON BAY “HERE”, OMAR “HERE” JEFFEY “HERE” DAVE THE SHYSTER “HERE” J-MAN ? J-MAN?….

….oh yeah, where was Jerry Manuel yesterday? Not at the Bay Day ceremonies that’s for sure. How about David Wright? Carlos Beltran? Johan Santana? Alex Cora? (you know  the heart and soul of the Mets), Charlie Samuels? (good thing Samuels wasn’t there he’d have had Bay decked out in a black jersey and the shitty black cap with blue brim. Bad enough Bay wore the snow white jersey and not the pinstripe that we heard was all the rage this winter but he did have the blue hat) but seriously, the manager couldn’t fly in from Cali to greet his new LF’er? Doesn’t D-Wright keep a flop flat down in Gramercy Park? I’m sure the Skill Sets could have splurged for a room and air fare for Beltran and Santana and the wifies for a week end in NYC and appearance at the Bay presser.

If it’s a point where one or two of these guys had prior engagements, then couldn’t you have found a day when either J-Man or D-Wright could be on hand? For Christ sake, Rod Gilbert was there (I guess it was an open bar)

Pat Reily has always said the thing that keeps teams from winning is The Disease of Me and after seeing no one but Omar, Jeffey, Dave the Shyster and the ubiquitous  Jay Horowitz yesterday ad $iti Field, I’d say the Mets org has terminal Disease of Me.

  1. Steve,

    “We” need to be more optimistic. If good health prevails, “my” “Shake Shackers” stand a good chance at being the wild card.

    Of course I fully agree about the dopes running the team.

  2. There was no need to advance a runner, so Manuel didn’t need to be there to ask Bay to bunt.

    Seriously, the further and longer Manuel stays from this team, the better off it’ll be.
