BELTRAN NEEDS A SHOT OF FRENCHY’S PERSONALITY

Not much in the way of Mets news but I guess we’ve all seen that Don Wakamatsu has been fired as Mariners manager,(but still has his career in Rap to fall back on) and Jerry Manuel lives on as the lamest of lame duck skippers. I see where Manuel now wants to sit Carlos Beltran who is not very happy about it. I guess he can’t tell jokes and juggle like Jeff Francoeur who persuade Manuel to give him more playing time. Maybe learn guitar Carlos and then serenade the ’Gangsta’ .

I agree here with Mathew Cerrone, Beltran needs to play but he needs to bat lower in the order and maybe move over to RF for now and let Angel Pagan play CF.

A fan is suing the Mets, MLB, Luis Castillo and just about anyone else he can fit on a legal brief for Castillo’s bat breaking and entering the stands and hitting this guy in the kisser. Who knew balsa wood could be so dangerous.  I bet this guy was either on his cell phone waving to a camera or just not paying attention. Sorry no litigation money for you!

Yesterday the Y-D Red Sox exploded for 11 runs in the bottom of the first inning against the Orleans Firebirds in the first game of the best of three East Semi-Finals on the way to an un Cape League 23-10 win. Red Sox first baseman Jordan Ribera who has a thick lower torso that generates a big power swing, homered twice in the bottom of the first and just missed a third home run in the eighth inning. I’m trying to finagle my way over to Orleans for game two tonight at 7PM

  1. Isn’t the normal solution for the Mets situation is to fire the Manager? That’ll shake up the players and make them worry about their jobs. Oh wait, they’re all on Fred’s Dole. Maybe that’ll be the threat to some of the players: you’re stuck on this team and you’re not going anywhere.

  2. Bat Beltran in the 2 hole!! THATS where he hit in the 2004 playoffs.

  3. Thanks for the link, We greatly appreciate it!!!

  4. Brandon Phillips and Dusty Baker are my two new baseball heroes. Imagine, there were rumors of Phillips and his in-your-face attitude coming to Queens last winter. Instead, we kept Luis. Oh, the pain…

    Rich my thoughts exactly about Phillips and that Reds- Cards game imagine two teams that really hate each other and confronting each other on it. Hell even old Dusty and TLR were hopped up I’m sure the highlights of that game were banned at Citi Field we don’t want to upset our little Metsies!!!!
