So now that we have something to cheer about in what has been a less than enjoyable baseball season, the voices of sports squawk radio and those who feel they’re the conscious of Mets fans tells us not to get too giddy over this unexpected four game win streak that includes three against the Bronx Bastards. To them I say go piss in someone else’s pool. I’ll revel in whatever joy this team gives me, it could all turn to shit very quickly.

So while we can say we root for the best baseball team in NYC, there is still danger in the summer moon above.

If anything disturbs me it’s the indecision on the front office’s part on what to do with Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada. It seems that brain trust is divided on what to do with both of these underachievers.  Reports are that Terry Collins gave them both what for before Tuesday’s game and that the both were saved a trip to Sin City by the Mets win as everyone in the Mets clubhouse had on party hats and were swinging at Piñatas and enjoyed ice cream after the Mets beat the Highlanders and Mariano Rivera, with the kids all having a good time no one had the heart to tell Davis and Tejada they were moving away from their friends. Kids are quite vulnerable you know.

But now it seems Ike Daivs is pulling a Hulk Hogan, when just when you think the 3 count will get him, he raises that finger on the count of two, waves that index finger, gets up and puts the big boot in the opponents face.  Tejeda did the organization a favor by straining a quad muscle and will be out for the season, well, not really but he’s on the 15 day DL, and by Tejada status means it will take him a month to heal and then his rehab then the obligatory minor league starts at Brooklyn, we looking at, oh I don’t know, Labor Day for Tejada? That’s okay as we have the man we want in Omar Quintanilla, back to play stellar D and get some big hits, or so we hope.

Nothing beats having completion on a team for jobs. The word on Tejada was he was getting very complacent thinking he had civil service status as a Met and a trip to Vegas would take him down a notch or two, let’s hope he doesn’t sit around eating Hagen Das while lounging on the beach during his recovery.  

If anything tonight’s game in the South Bronx is not just about sweeping the Highlanders and having their fans jump like rats from a sinking ship, it’s about Dillon Gee pitching for his spot in the rotation. Gee needs to step up big time tonight to keep a spot in the rotation. By next week the rotation will be Harvey-Niese-Marcum-Wheeler and either Gee or Hefner. I’m rooting for Gee to bounce back and keep the 5th spot in the rotation I just feel Hefner is best suited for the bullpen and as the old timey spot starter.

When it comes crashing down, and it hurts inside,
ya’ gotta take a stand, it don’t help to hide,
Well, you hurt my friends, and you hurt my pride,
I gotta be a man; I can’t let it slide,
I am a real American, Fight for the rights of every man,
I am a real American, fight for what’s right, fight for your life!

Chris “The Animal” Carter comes to the plate to Rick Derringer’s I Am A Real American A/K/A Hulk Hogan’s song’
