MetsCellaneous

While I take a break from Tweeting my outrage over scab referees working NFL games and that disgrace last night at the end of the Packers-Seahawks game (forget the clusterfuck TD call where was the flag on Seahawk WR Golden Tate for his two hand shove of a Packers DB in the end zone? I hate going against the former FIGHTING IRISH receiver but it was blatant offensive pass interference and that should have ended the game in the Packers favor) a few observations from last night’s Mets-Pirates game:

I get the distinct feeling the Mets are fatting up Jenry Mejia like a Christmas goose to put on the market this off season along with Jon Niese , Daniel Murphy and maybe David Wright. I can see a blockbuster deal going down around end of December with multiple teams and the Mets as the main dealer. It won’t be of Dodgers-Red Sox magnitude but more of a Highlanders –Orioles June 15th 1976 variety.

I guess it was around the 3rd or 4th inning, both Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy went after a foul ball heading towards the stands, neither player got to the ball but Murphy made a sliding try and ended up getting his foot caught in the revolving signage. My problem? Ike never gave Murph a hand getting undone from the sign. WTF Ike?

If you ever want to know the attendance at Citi Field just log on to Twitter for 5 mins after first pitch. There must have been 100 pictures sent to Twitter with crowd or in this case non-crowd shots. Seems everyone who was in attendance took a pic and tweeted it.

With that goatee, Daniel Murphy looks like Louis CK

Boy oh boy did the Marlins and Pirates come to Flushing at the right time. After that 16-1 crash and burn and the outrage that followed what better antidote than having two don’t give a shit teams come in to remedy what ails the Mets and too show Mets fans that we do not root for the worst team in baseball.

How is it that Fred Lewis spent all season in Buffalo and Andres Torres spent all season in Flushing?

WOW! What has gotten into Gary Cohen lately? Last night he tore into Heath Bell for throwing Ozzie Guillen under the bus for Bell’s statement that there is no communication between the Fish manager and players. GC said that Bell should shut up and pitch and then added that it would be hard to throw Bell under a bus as he wouldn’t fit. Bada Bing!!!!

I’d love to see if Mets could make a deal with Brewers to get Corey Hart and Carlos Gomez. Two-thirds of your outfield problems solved right there.

METS LOSE TO PADS 18-6 HAIRSTON’S 2 TD’S THE DIFFERENCE

Rough one last night in San Diego. Kevin Corria connected twice to Jerry Hariston Jr in the end zone for 2 TD’s and David Eckstein kicked two extra points to lead the Padres over the Mets 18-6. Adrian Gonzalez had a big night of defense as he sacked Raul Valdes and Ryota Igarashi in the end zone for safeties. The Mets scored on a Jose Reyes punt return but the 2pt conversion failed.  

If I’m Ollie Perez or Scott Boras I’d welcome a trip to Buffalo as to not have to face the media and a very angry fan base when the Mets get back to NYC to open a three game series with the Fish on Friday. I’d love to get a press pass for the Friday game just to ask Ollie on question:

“Oliver? Steve Keane from the Eddie Kranepool Society” How does it feel that Mets front office, players and fan base are so disgusted by your selfishness that they would rather see you hogtied with an athletic cup shoved in your mouth stuffed in the trunk of a car parked on Fountain Avenue in East New York Brooklyn”

Ollie: “Brooklyn? Shit I don’t want to go to Buffalo what makes you think I want to go to Brooklyn”
