ANOTHER STEP BACK

Greetings from Kissimmee, Florida where the humidity  is a rude as the European tourists at Disney World.

One of the best features of the condo we’re staying in is it has wi fi which is something the Disney hotels don’t , which always shocked me. Everything Disney’s does is first class you would think adding free wi fi would be a no brainer. Oh well.

The Mets season could be summed up by the just completed Nats series. Just when you get a burst of enthusiasm that this team has couple be a major player down the stretch and maybe have turned that corner to being relevant again, you get games like yesterday that make you think there is much more work to do. Base running errors (seems the manager blames Jon Niese for not tagging and going home on Wright’s fly ball that doubled up Murphy but the Murph-haters out there don’t agree) and the closer in training again not showing a closers mentality to finish out a game.

If Bobby Parnell wants to show the Mets brass that he is THE GUY, to be the closer in 2012, he can blow games like yesterday. A real closer comes in after a go ahead home run in the 9th and closes the game 1-2-3. With a 100MPH fastball, Parnell should have come into the game breathing fire. His makeup as much as his pitching will be on display for the next two months.

Is anyone upset that Sandy Alderson didn’t make any more moves at the trade deadline? Scott Hairston, Willie Harris or Izzy could be moves through waivers but as Terry Collins said there is anyone in Buffalo to bring up in their place.

That’s enough for today, back to my R & R

    Always easier for the Manager to blame a clueless pitcher, when it comes to a baserunning blunder – than someone he’s relying upon to be an everyday position player.

    Murphy knows how to do one thing at the Major League-level: hit.

    His game has advanced marginally at a few different positions, but his head’s absolutely cluttered when it comes to an actual game situation. Hopefully, Alderson sells high on him this winter.

    Yes, Murphy is still terrible.
