The Ghosts of Coogan’s Bluff Are Smiling

The Marco Scutaro Fairy Tale continues as he is not only headed to the World Series with his NL Pennant winning SF Giants teammates but he’s bringing the NLCS MVP Trophy along with him. WOW!! Simply WOW!!

As I said yesterday I’ll be rooting for the Giants to beat the Tigers who as Greg Prince eloquently posted on Faith and Fear in Flushing will be meeting for the first time ever in a World Series which is astonishing since both teams have been around for well over 100 years.  I could not help but sit and stare at the TV watching 45,000+ sing and dance in a monsoon of a rain storm with a smile on my face as I dreamed about the day when I can feel that exaltation again about the NY Mets.  For those too young to have experienced the mid 80’s Mets and that championship season of 1986, that crowd at ATT Park was us back in the day but ramped up more than 1,000 decibels or more.  We made enough of a racket and disruption to make Shea Stadium literally rock and roll and then add in the anarchist behavior of the 80’s as we ran rough shod on Pete Flynn’s landscaped lawn to grab a souvenir slice of sod hoping that the rent a cops didn’t yank me by my pony tail.

When I watched the scene in San Francisco last night it just reinforced why I love baseball and of course the Mets, I’ve been in the middle of the celebratory scrum and I’d love to be in the middle of another one al least I won’t have to worry about getting pulled by the pony tail.

I have no problem what so ever about the club bring back Mike Pelfrey on an incentive laden contract for 2013. I know many Mets fans have jump off the Big Pelf bandwagon but I think he can be a contributor out of the pen if not the 5th starter on the team next season.

As for Andres Torres, what’s the decision he has got to go. If Torres is retained for 2013 I will be highly pissed off. Even if a deal can’t made for a center fielder, either Kirk Nieuwenhuis or Matt den Dekker would be a solid upgrade over Torres. I can’t believe this even a discussion amongst the Mets decision makers.

 

This is a picture of the NY Giants of 1888 who defeated the St. Louis Browns of the American Association in the exhibiton known as the World Series. The man in the middle is Giants manager Big Jim Murrite. When you’re named Big Jim odds are you don’t tolorate too much bullshit!

ANYONE WATCH THE GAME LAST NIGHT?

Are you guys staying up late to watch our hero’s on the Left Coast? I see that L-Hern had nothing last night but a batting practice fastball and we now have A-Hern back could L-Millz be far behind for a Back to the Future retro ?

Congrats to Big Pelf on becoming a first time Daddy.

It seems I’ve hit a nerve with some readers on calling out D-Wright for not charging the mound after Brad Thompson whizzed a pitch at his head, and I will say that I am stunned that some of you guys think he did the right thing by not going after Thompson. All I can tell you pacifists is the Mets have a rep around baseball as a bunch of pussies who when they are challenged never step up not just to fight but when times get tough they wilt like flowers in a rain storm. Thing will never change until the team grows some balls and if you think that is neanderthal thinking well it is and I don’t apologize for that and if you don’t like it then kiss my hairy cave man ass.

Thank God for the New York Fottball Giants to take my mind off this awful Mets season
