WIN TODAY, YESTERDAY BECOMES MEANINGLESS

Not much to get your nuts twisted over after yesterday’ game , Roy Haliday did what he’s been doing his whole career, keeping hitters off balance and dominating. 10-0 loss mark it down to shit happens. If Jose Reyes and Alex Cora make a couple of plays (both balls hit them in the glove tough plays but it’s the big leagues ‘fellas gotta catch those) maybe the game takes a different spin.

Win the game tonight with our Ace, who has a 4-1 lifetime record against the Phuck Phaces and all is right with the Mets world again.

The thing to watch after this game is how Big Pelf responds in his next start, most likely next Friday at home against the Giants.  Will it be old Pelf, less focused or ne Pelf, confidant and secure that he is a top echelon pitcher ?  Can’t wait for Friday to find out.

Sometimes it’s the little things that tell you about a player and a team. Jerry Manuel told Jeff Francoeur he was sitting out yesterday’s game due to getting plunked on the elbow with a pitch and crashing into the wall to make a catch. When told of this decision, Frenchy respectfully told the manager, hell to the no, I’m playing. So Manuel put him in. Big props to Frenchy.

Yes I know Alex Cora is a clubhouse leader and will be a big league manager and adopts Haitian orphans, is working a cure for cancer and feeds the homeless, but he has look so bad at bat and in the field so far this season that I get pissed when he plays instead of Luis Castillo. Hard to believe but I pray for Castillo’s good health.

I’m looking forward to the HBO Broad Street Bullies presentation this Tuesday night.  I’m sure this clip will be shown prominently during the show.

  1. You forgot three important Cora positives: he’s cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf, he diffused the bomb in Times Square, and he has incriminating photos of Omar Minaya. Not necessarily in that order.

  2. Modell’s is having a sale on Pinstriped Crutches. So far you can get them with #s 14 & 31. Expect them to be big sellers this year.

    Meanwhile the little insect at shortstop ain’t exactly tearing the cover off the ball.

    And one more thing bothering me:

    If I choose to watch the game on ESPN I’m subjected to Jon Miller’s over the top pronunciations of Latin names.

    Do us a favor Miller and get on the fuckin’ plane and head to Mexico. They could use an illegal alien.

  7. Score one for Michael…comment 5, not 4!
