THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THERE ARE NO MEANINGUL GAMES TO PLAY

You can go to NY Football Blogs to check my predictions for the 2010 NFL season. Also check out Frank Maniscalco and me this Sunday night September 12th for NY Football Blogs Live on Blog Talk Radio at 9PM ET

The snubbing by Carlos Beltran, Oliver Perez and Luis Castilo of the team visit to Walter Reed Hospital is still a story today and the chasm that exists in the Mets clubhouse is finally being brought to light.

It’s no coincidence that the three players are the ones with the most issues with the organization. From the quotes from David Wright and Mike Pelfrey and newcomer R.A. Dickey, it seems crystal clear that all three players need to be extracted like an impacted molar before this organization can climb out of the abyss it is now in.

Beltran claims he had a meeting to deal with a high school is help get built in Puerto Rico, this is a noble effort, no doubt but in my opinion still no excuse for not joining his teammates at Walter Reed. His statement that he went to a VA hospital here in NY should not even have been brought up, it makes it sound like Beltran fulfilled an obligation instead of having the honor of being in the presence of heroes.

Castillo pulled the Cowardly Lion defense that the sight of maimed soldiers was upsetting to him. That statement made me detest Castillo even more.

Oliver Perez’ reply of why he didn’t attend was he doesn’t answer questions “outside the stadium” only proves than Mets fans are correct when they look at Perez as an immature, ignorant failure who will never ever succeed here or anywhere. I hope he wastes all his money and ends up living in cardboard box in Mexico City.

Terrific Q & A by Adam Rubin with David Wright that reveals a lot of how Wright feels about the team and his wanting to stay a Met. I took from this article that Wright feels the team maybe be better off going with a younger hungrier bunch of players and that the fans perception that some guys in that clubhouse don’t take losing seriously is spot on.

The Brooklyn Cyclones tied their series with Jamestown at 1 game apiece and they did in true Wally Ball fashion when ZeEricka McQueen scored from third on a wild pitch.  A walk (mad dash?)-off win ? Only in Coney Island.

MISCH MOSH AND JERRY MANUEL SHOULD HAVE HAD A V-8

 

Talk about Groundhog Day, how many times can I sit here and go over the same old shit about the Mets, but I’ll a try:

I wonder if Pat Misch sat at his locker last night and pondered, “You know Buffalo isn’t so bad, at least they score runs” Another nice effort out of Misch goes for naught after Carlos Lee blasted a cannon shot to left field and a 2-0 Mets lead became a 3-2 Astros win. Drive home safe everybody.

“We have to do what we’ve been talking about all of the time, we have to do more offensively.  We’ve got to find a way to get that done.  I mean, that’s poor.  That’s a very poor effort on our part offensively… We have to do better.  Period.  It’s pathetic.  We have to do better.”

~ Jerry Manuel, after tonight’s loss

Asked whose approach he did like at the plate tonight, Manuel shrugged and said, ‘maybe Misch, with that hit with two strikes.’

Welcome to our world Jerry.

Switching gears for a moment, I will be joining Frank Maniscalco this Sunday and every other Sunday during the football season on NY SPORTS BLOG RADIO on the BLOG TALK RADIO NETWORK.  Don’t forget about my No PSL Required Fantasy Football Team, we have a few spots left.

In the aftermath of the Fransisco Rodriquez beat down of his baby’s moma’s Papi (huh?) the Skill Sets have put the rest of the team under house arrest. Talk about a picture says a thousand words.

THE WAIT-ING IS THE HARDEST PART

Still a bit stunned after watching the Celtics lose to the Knicks last night at MSG. Memo to Al Harrington, I know last night was the highlight of your career but remember, come April you will be sitting on your couch while the C’s are deep into the playoffs so get your popcorn ready. I’m pretty sure that the Knicks will be raising banner on the 14th before the game with the Wiz to commemorate the victory over Boston.

 

So while we wait for Scott Boras/Derek Lowe to produce a counter offer to the Mets let me alert you to the fact that Pro Baseball Central will be back this week on the air this Thursday night at 9PM (EST) on Blog Talk Radio. So join Joe McDonald and yours truly for our first PBC of 2009.

 

Yesterday, in the Daily News they had a piece on Anthony Young and it was good to see Ol’ A.Y. is alive and well and to reflect on his 27 consecutive loses which was a hard to believe 16 years ago.

 

Over at NYBD Frank Maniscalco has a fantasy baseball column up and some details of a Fantasy League that Frank will be running. Also check out the NYBD show from last night on the Hot Stove with Mike Silva and Howard Megdal.

 

Mets Geek has an in-depth piece on RHP Sean Green who came over with J J Putz from the Mariners and will take over the Joe Smith role. Green could be a big part of the late inning Mets pen.

 

I love how the Mets Police has gone on the war path over the awful black Mets jerseys. Really,  with the new ball park opening this year it’s time to ditch the black. The Mets should stay with the pinstriped classic uni for home games with either the snow whites for Sunday games with the all blue cap, orange top button and NY on he front  and the road uni should be left alone but if you want to tweak that you could go with a gray top and pants with orange/blue stripe on the pant leg with the classic orange NY on the left breast. I’d even go with the old NY Giants all black cap with the orange NY for the road cap well. Anything is better than those awful looking black jersey’s. Wow all of a sudden I have the urge to listen to Peter Allen records.

 

Hopefully by the end of the week (Please Omar sign Lowe/Manny/ Orlando Hudson and trade Gimp Castillo on Thursday) there will be some movement on the free agent logjam or we will all need a good colon cleansing soon

DO NOT DISTRUB

10:30 on a Saturday morning and I’m still sitting in my living room. No basketball games to run to. No ice skating lesson to go freeze my ass off at AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I could get used to this but I know it won’t last too much longer.

Not much Mets news either as but you should check out this post from Mike Silva on his NY Baseball Digest site on the Christmas Day article in the Daily News on Ryan Church. Silva had told me when Mike Francesa went on his Church hates NY rant that it was bullshit and now Church in this article backs that up. Also Silva is adding the lovely and talented Frank Maniscalco (A/K/A Frankie The Sports Guy) as his go to guy on Fantasy Baseball.
