WHEN THE WALLS COME TUMBLIN’ DOWN

 

Here’s the Mets news of the day:

The Mets are in a pennant race but on the wrong side of the track. The red-hot Redbrids are breathing down the necks of the Bravos of whom the Mets took two out three games from last week and have made the Washington Generals Mets look like stumblebums the last two nights.

Lucas Duda came out of the game last night after running into the right field fence. Doctors say he does not show symptoms of a concussion. Duda will announce his retirement from baseball Monday at Citi Field due to effects of the head injury he suffered last night.

The Mets organization have made the decision it’s better to go to Home Depot and invest in plywood, nails and Scotts Turf Builder to rebuild the Great Wall of Flushing into the Grotto De Corona complete with a small wall, a grassy knoll and votive candles, than to go out and get better players. If this doesn’t work, the Skill Sets will petition MLB to allow David Wright to take all his home at bats at the 2K Sports Fan Fest Wiffle Ball Field.  

Pedro Beato was ineffective again last night out of the pen. Beato claims to be fatigued due to pitching for close to 20 months straight between Winter ball, Minor Leagues and this full year with the Mets. NYC Department of Child Services is looking into Beato’s claim of abuse by his foster parents, Dan Warthen and Terry Collins.

Sandy Alderson was surprised when told that the vast majority of Mets fans want the outfield walls painted BLUE. I guess he’d be shocked, SHOCKED to find out that we think the Black Jerseys suck ass as well.

  1. My point exactly. Good players win, no matter where the game is played. Can you see it coming? They do little this winter, and tell us to come on out next year and see more HRs. Yeah, by the opposition…this whole thing is something I thought went out with Omar. Excuses, excuses, excuses…

  2. Mr. Alderson tear down this wall.

    And like the Soviet Union, the Mets will still suck for a long while.

  3. Well, I have been away from commenting on my favorite Mets blog. Although, gratefully, my early season prediction of 100+ losses was off, and I was wrong wrong wrong on Collins,still, i also am confused by the bringing in of the walls as the solution.david Wright needs to go fishing and lay on a beach somewhere and forget…or remember what made him so exciting.Has the beaning really done this?Watching him flinch in the field at a line drive to his left was
    sad,not to mention bailing every time a curve ball is inside. Reyes, I wonder if Carl Crawford is going to be the Jose Reyes litmus test. Bringing in the fences is as useless as the black softball uni’s .The pitching staff is going to ,oh…this team as Miles Davis would say is a mother——.
    I reckon we will see how great a genius Sandy actually can be. It has been said that Picasso could paint a masterpiece using only a stick and cow dung. Maybe Alderson can do the same.

  4. Man, did this year end with a whimper!
