The Mets wrapped up a fine weekend in Baltimore with a three game sweep in front of a friendly crowd of Mets fans who made the trip down I-95 to Camden Yards, I’d love to get on the Orioles but I feel for ex-Met Juan Samuel and recently axed manager Dave Trembley because my youth baseball team is having an Oriole-like season so I just want to say misery lovers company fellas’

It’s games like today that show the huge step that Big Pelf has made this season. Last yer he would have fell apart as his command was off and he just did not look very comfortable on the mound but Pelfrey proved how important the mental side of pitching is. There are days when your physical tools are on auto-pilot and then there are days like to day where you physically misfire but you have enough savvy to make adjustments and keep yourself and your team afloat. Sure we all love those 3 hit 10K shutouts but sometimes watching a guy keep his team in a game on brains is a real museum piece as well.

I’m usually not one to vote for the All-Star Game but after the surge that David Wright is on I feel it’s my duty as a Mets fan to stuff the ballot box. David Wright deserves to be the starting 3rd baseman for the National League in Anaheim.

  1. How sweet it is! Yes, the Birds suck, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Before the weekend, I read that the Highlanders were 10-2 vs. Balt and 2 games over .500 vs. the rest os baseball. You have to get fat against the lousy teams, to their credit, it is the Highlander business model.

    Good words on Samuel. I always liked him and felt he got a raw deal here. They put him in CF, a position he was not ready for, and the fans were ruthless to the guy. The guy had all the tools (well, he wasn’t the greatest defender), and I wished he would have stayed longer. Without looking it up, I think they got Mike Marshall (fucking disgrace) for Sammy. Ugh. Oh well. Mets are rolling, it’s all good now!
