MY HATRED FOR BILL CONLIN GOES BACK A WAYS

I’m sure many of you have read the stories concerning former Philadelphia Inquirer baseball writer Bill Conlin and the sickening accusation that he sexually abused children, some who were his niece and nephew, over 40 years ago. It’s so sad that these people have had to carry this burden around with them for all these years and now due to the statute of limitations, Conlin cannot be arrested and prosecuted for the alleged crime he committed which is a shame.    

I bring up Conlin here because I got an e mail to moderate a comment on this sight from a poster named Edgy DC who found a post I wrote here back in November 2007 about a feud I had with Conlin back then via e mail.  Check out the post from November 23, 2007 where I discussed with Conlin that a Phillies blogger wrote about how he felt David Wright was more deserving of the NL MVP award than Jimmy Rollins. The back and forth I have with Conlin is pretty comical but with the severity of the allegation against Conlin now, I feel bad I didn’t wait for outside Shea Stadium and beat the living shit out of him.    

Big thank you to Edgy DC for finding this post and linking it back

TIME TO HEAD FOR THE HILLS

No blogging for the weekend as I’m off the U.S. Military Academy in West Point for a weekend camping trip with my sons Boy Scout troop. Even though the troop has a strict no electronics policy when it comes to these trips, the subversive that I am will sneak a radio in my bag to try to listen or at least get a score of this weekend Mets-Phillies series. Hopefully my tent mate won’t turn me in and have my ass hauled off to the stockade.

 

Sure it’s a big series but I think it’s to the Mets benefit that they are playing in Philly since they are so concerned about fan reaction. Remember the words of Bobby Knight, “when you start listening to the people in the stands, you end up joining them”. It seems that it’s not a lack of focus with the Mets but misplaced focus that is doing them in.

 

On that subject a must listen is Mike Silva’s interview with Kevin Kernan of the NY Post  that connects the paranoia of the owner and front office rubbing off on the uniform personnel. Silva’s comment says it all:

 

   The Mets have a reputation for trying to control the news around their club. It never works and often makes things even worse in the long run. How can you expect your players to toughen up when management has an equally, if not worse, thin skin? What’s next? You’re going to throw the fans out and play in an empty stadium so you don’t hear any boos? Keep playing like this and you might not need to worry about that.

 

HOME RUN  Mike!!!!

 

David Lennon calls out the lack of intestinal fortitude of the Mets:

 

Often, it’s hard to pin down the intangibles with numbers, but not in this case. With Wednesday’s loss to the Marlins, the Mets (9-12) stumbled to 1-10 when trailing after six innings. After seven, they are 0-11.

 

The newest member of the Douche Bag Hall of Fame is Philadelphia Inquirer columnist John Gonzalez. Its guys like Gonzalez that makes the demise of newspapers easier to take. If a blogger ever wrote a poorly put together piece like this Buzz Bissinger would go to his mother’s basement and kick his ass. I’d call Gonzalez a rank amateur but the fact that he lives and worked in Philadelphia is punishment enough. For a fan base that for vast majority of its existence has been apathetic towards it’s baseball team, they really need a good strong glass of shut the fuck up. Phillies fans are starting to make Highlander fans tolerable.

 

Shrek and Johnny Bench Santos are safe for a while longer and Brian Schneider is still feeling the effects of a sore calf. Take your time Bri.

 

Enjoy your weekend and while your snug in your bed think of me sleeping in the woods and don’t smirk.

 

LET’S  GO METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

W B C-YA LATER

 

 

Whoever came up this World Baseball Classic bullshit tournament needs a punch in the face. You want to play a trumped up fantasy type game like this do it on a computer or X-Box. When it comes defending my country, I’m all in but when it comes to baseball my heart is Blue and Orange. All I care about are the New York Mets and what spring training is for is to evaluate my team to see if we’re ready for the upcoming season and with this WBC, that goal is taking a back seat and that pisses me off.

 

The Pudge to the Mets rumors are back and hotter and heavier as the team may be trying to give Shrek a prod in the ass or maybe they are just sick and tired of his underachieving.

 

As per Mike Silva NYBD, the Philadelphia Inquirer is running a poll on which Mets collapse was the best the 2007, 2008 or the on this upcoming season. Silva does a great job taking the paper to the wood shed but I’d say to Mike and all Mets fans just let these Philly Phuck heads be. It will be fun watching them embarrass themselves as they have no idea how to handle success. The whole town is like trailer trash winning the Mega Millions Lottery, they will self-destruct soon.

 

You get the feeling at some point the U.S Dept of Justice will throw in the towel on trying to prosecute Barry Bonds. All this is a waste of Federal Agent manpower, clogging the courts and a big waste of money. Just blame it all on the Bush Administration we’ll all understand.

 

I would pay money to watch Lou Pinella beat Steve Philips’ ass.

 

Just the thought of D-Wright lockering next to Jimmy Rollins and Derek Jeter makes me want to heave
