METS GET COLLINS WAKE-UP CALL

25 years ago this very day, the NY Mets clinched the NL East at Shea Stadium, as we see in this clip from Studious Metsimus pandemonium prevailed at the end of the game and long into the night.  

 

Call me a cynic but I think the reason the Mets responded with a big win last night was they realized that Terry Collins has more job security than they do. Of all the players and coaches, Collins is the only one assured to be back in 2012. How often does that happen in pro sports? Not often.

So Carlos Beltran is recruiting Jose Reyes to the Giants? Does that fall under tampering? So if Reyes signs with the Giants, #BlameBeltran

Also according to the Phink Phrom Philly a/k/a Jayson Stark, Sandy Alderson will take a hard line stance with Reyes’ agent as he won’t be jerked around when it comes to talking contract. Makes me guess that Alderson has a deadline in place when he either signs Reyes or lets him and he won’t let himself or the Mets become a tool in a bidding war.

Are we in the mist of the resurrection of Jason Bay’s career? Besides his great catch last night, Bay has had a month we never thought we’d see from him as he has put up a line of .288/.370/.513. By the way, who said Canadians can’t jump?

BOOKMARK ALERT!!!! Taryn Cooper a/k/a COOP has a new website with the one of the great titles in the history of the internet A Gal For All Seasons.

REMEMBERING THE QUIET MAN

I for one, can not get enough of reading about Gil Hodges and after reading Taryn Cooper’ (a/k/a The COOP) posting on Mets Merized Online, It gave me time to reflect on this great player, manager and man.

  I always point to the death of Hodges on April 2,  1972 as one of the two darkest days (the other was June 15, 1977 and is you don’t know what happened on that date you are reading the wrong blog asshole) and the day the promise of the Mets organization died.

I also remember as an 8 year old Mets fan/Brooklyn gutter snipe, going to Hodges wake with my firends and our dads. We wore our baseball uniforms and walked past the resting Hodges and just cried like it was a family member, HELL he was a family member.

As Mets fans we bask in the fact that Hodges was not just the man that led the Mets from misfits to champions but he was also one of us, as he lived with his born and bred  Brooklynite wife Joan in Mill Basin, It’s a shame that Mets ownership doesn’t put together a campaign to get Gil Hodges into Cooperstown where he belongs.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!!

We thought about heading for $iti Field today as it’s the first day that no one in my house has anything to do but the weather is so awful again so we scrapped that move and besides I’m going out to $iti on Thursday -in the Coop Suite-so trying to find what to do toady my wife and kids came up with this great idea, lets; stay home and do nothing.

I don’t know if really know how to stay home and do nothing but we are going to try it out. So for this fathers day I’m going to sit and watch the Mets and Big Pelf then after the game I’m going to play Wiffle ball in the driveway and then eat zitti and meatballs

Hope your Fathers Day is a wonderful as mine.
