HANG IN THERE METS FANS, METS-SANITY IS ON THE WAY

Really not much Mets stuff to talk about, we’ve already covered Johan Santana and his left arm, the new dimensions of the outfield walls at Citi Field and Daniel Murphy playing 2nd base.

We’ve discussed Sandy Alderson on Twitter (@MetsGM), the schedule for Mets bobble head days (no Kranepool bobbler though, sad!) We talked about the pessimistic/optimistic Mets fan, ticket packages, Ike Davis ankle, David Wright’s back and Lucas Duda outfield prowess.

We’ve learned that Josh Lewin will be Howie Rose’s tag team partner in the Mets radio booth, and that John Franco (not Edgardo Alfonzo) will be inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame. The new/old uniforms are back, that’s been discussed and of course the financial state of the Skill Sets and the club has been expounded upon by experts and those who have trouble making change for a dollar.

Just think we’ve discussed, debated and beaten to death these and other subjects about our beloved Metsies even while Super Bowls were won, hockey team looking like Cup Champs and a kid from Harvard has stolen the heart of hoops fans of NYC.

The manager, coaches and many players are in camp. Dispatches with the address Pt. St. Lucie are now showing up on the fish wraps, soon SNY will transmit pictures and sounds of our heroes in action and not a moment too soon as me thinks some of the fan base needs a baseball fix badddddddly.

RUMBLE, RUMBLE TOIL AND TROUBLE IN METSVILLE

Boy oh boy, it’s the 3rd day of November and already the Mets fan base is restless. Between the outfield renovations, Jose Reyes freedom walk, the Skill Sets crumbling financial situation and the total lack of optimism among those live and die all things Mets ( not that we’re a Mary Sunshine bunch to begin with) has given me a Back to the Future kind of feel to it. I really, really hope this organization is not reverting to the De Roulet-M.Donald Grant Destroy a Thriving Franchise style of management. At least back then I had places like Max’s Kansas City and CBGB’s to go to forget my Mets sorrows all I have now is shots of Milk of Magnesia.

Thanks to Mike Silva, I had to pop TWO high blood pressure pills this morning.

Mark Healy speaks for all of us long (and I mean LLLLLOOOONNNNGGGG) time Mets fans with his piece in Gotham Baseball.

Joe DeMayo of Pt St. Lucie to Flushing has his Top 25 Mets prospect list out and I’m happy he added LHP Jack Leathersich to his list.

Seems that the Skill Sets have settled with the pensioners of Sterling Equities in losing their retirement money if the Madoff nonsense. You know, when all these law suits are settled, maybe we Mets fans can file a lawsuit against the Skill Sets for abandonment.
