J-MAN AND OLD SCHOOL WARTHEN GOING DOWN SWINGING

The big story coming out of last nights Mets game is what is the reaction of the other 24 players to the the handling of John Maine. After getting lifted last night after 5 pitches Maine looked like a guy praying for a life line. When the cavalry came to the rescue in the persons of Jerry Manuel and Old School Warthen, instead of being thankful for saving him, Maine gets all pissy with the manager.

After the game and let me say SNY you suck! Why can’t we see Jerry Manuel’s post game presser live? Why do I have to wait through the insufferable Garry Apple to hear the John Maine pitty party that you promoed as must see, if it’s must see then let me fucking see it! I’ll say this, it was worth my wait but I shouldn’t have to wait and after I see and hear Maine’ melt down,  I want to hear Bobby O break it down not Gary Fucking Apple!

Back to Maine, finally J-Man and Old School are starting to take no prisoners with this team and the pitching staff. If J-Man is going to get the boot he’s not going down without a fight. You, David Wright take the day off. What, you don’t agree with that? Too fucking bad, grab some pine.  John Maine, there is either something wrong with your arm or your head and since you couldn’t break a pane of glass in any of your last starts and your delivery was in slow motion so badly that  Old School Warthen asked you if your ok and  you say yeah even though your mechanics and body language say different. In other words John Maine your are a selfish prick. Your whole post game rant was me-me-me-me and that has been a problem around here for too long. Even the golden boy David Wright acted a like a me-me guy when Manuel told him he needed a day off. I think we can all thank Fredi Gonzalez for mangers finally standing up to players and setting them straight.

I also think that closed door meeting with the Mets brass had something to do with this as well. Maybe J-Man told Jeffey and Omar “look if I’m going down then I’m going down with a fight and I’ll do it by any means necessary”

First Manuel pulled Ollie Perez from the rotation then sat Wright down now he’s called out Maine and how about Old School with his quote on Maine being a “habitual liar” when it comes to his health? The gloves are off Mets fans, if J-Man and Warthen are going down then they going down fighting with bare knuckles. It’s about time.

Manuel and Old School know the next six games will decided their fate. 0-6 and it’s over, 4-2 their safe, 3-3 a toss up, 6-0 then we may look back at that meeting in Atlanta might as the turning point of the season .

Tonight the Mets will honor the 2000 NL Champs.  There will be a pre game ceremony attended by Mike Piazza, Edgardo Alfonzo, Turk Wendell, John Franco and Rick Reed. One other player will make an appearance, Mike Hampton. I’m just hoping the fans attending tonight’s game don’t embarrass themselves and the fan base by booing Hampton. I wasn’t happy when he decided to leave after one year as a Met but he was the MVP of the 2000 NLCS and by leaving the draft pick the Mets received was used to draft David Wright, so just for those two contributions he should get applause.  

How Bobby Valentine is not invited to tonight’s game is a disgrace and shows the short sightedness and pettiness of the Mets ownership. What are they afraid of Mets fans actually cheering at $iti Field?

Castillo to the Rox? Does that mean Daniel Murphy to second base? HELL YEAH!!!!

  1. Krane, I agree, the manager should be going down fighting, if he is going to go down. Funny, one home run, and a lot of hits, scores 10 runs…Hey David, see how the mere application of bat on ball, in a nice easy manner, produces four runs…did you need a home run to do it? NO! That goes for Mr. Bay & Mr. Francouer, as well. Keep up the nice easy swing Ike, there are a lot of hits to be had by making contact. Oh, by the way, your dad could not have been (at least after only a month) more accurate, your game is John Olerud…and long may you play that way.

    As for the celebration of the 2000 team…you are not shocked that Bobby V was not invited, are you? They figure the embarrassment of not inviting him, is not as bad as the embarrassment they would deal with when he got the huge standing ovation. Message to The Wilpons & Mr. Howard, the embarrassment of not inviting him will go on for as long as the team flounders. You should have invited him and not seem like the petty people you seem to be.

  2. I can’t understand why they organized this reunion for a game when they’re playing the Yankees. Uggh. Don’t these people have any pride? I can only imagine the looks on the faces of Jeter & co.

    Glad I’m stuck with radio only.

    pfh-if you don’ t invite the guy who was in charge of the team you are honoring how stupid and petty do you look? Of course BV will hear the roar of the crowd he deserves it, by the way Eagle you hit it on the head of all games to honor the team when you play against the oragnization who beat you in the 2000 WS? and you want to know why this team and ownership is the laughing stock of baseball. Honor the team that’s fine but how about doing it when the Twins come to town or the Pirates anyone but the Highlanders!

    Spectacular Steve!!! Bravo

  5. I agree with Steve/Michael. I also have more respect for Jerry after last night than I’ve ever had.

  6. Krane, I do not wonder about why they are the laughingstock of baseball. Like you, I know.

  7. Sofar Behinda says:

    Regarding Valentine, is it certain that they didn’t invite him? Maybe they did and he couldn’t attend – though my guess is that they did not invite him.

    Regarding the Castillo to the Rockies article – it says the Rockies may be interested in LC b/c they are not happy with Melvin Mora.

    Isn’t that like saying you’re interested in Elena Kagan because Jessica Alba isn’t attractive enough?

    Anyway, hurry up and “hit the bid” on that offer, Nomore.

  8. Dan Gurney says:

    Wasn’t there a ceremony in 2006 honoring the 1986 team and they didn’t invite Davey Johnson? Wilpon tradition of slighting the men who actually helped..like the Highlanders not mentioning Torre when they closed Yankee Stadium 2.0

    The lack of Armando Benitez was the biggest omission.

  9. Krane, I just found this website and your crackin me up!! I just wet myself!! I love the honesty your throwing out , I love the possibility of Bobby V. comin back , and after watching Daniel Murphy play second base here in Binghamton I know he would play 100% better than Castillo!!! Keep up the GREAT work , I’ll be checking you out!!
