Iâ€™m amazed how much some folks have their balls in an uproar over Gary Sheffield joining the team. Some are worried about team chemistry, how did that chemistry hold up the last two seasons? This team needs a bad ass even if itâ€™s an over the hill one. The chemistry issued should be moot now that itâ€™s known Sheff signed here because the “face of the franchise”, D-Wright called him and said that the Mets were the team for him.
What are you all afraid of? If Sheffield falls on his face heâ€™ll be gone by the All Star break, if he produces, guess what? Your favorite team just might win the NL East
For all of you concerned with the psyche of Ryan Church think about this. Maybe Church needs a kick in the ass to get motivated. No, Iâ€™m not drunk, think about it. In spring training J-Man said the Dan Murphy was a better hitter and that Fernando Tatis would be Churchâ€™s partner in RF an now they bring in Sheffield as a way to put a carrot in front of Church to produce. I guess we wonâ€™t read about this from the scribes who have access to the team on a daily basis as they are too busy stuffing their faces at the Shake Shack concession at $iti.
Which brings me to Ollie Perez and itâ€™s good thing it was cold and shity and $iti since most fans were busy trying eat their way from left field to right. You know what the season didnâ€˜t start yet but Iâ€™m already fed up with how good he food is at $iti Field if itâ€™s a choice of great food or a championship baseball team, Iâ€™ll eat a fucking bowl of Alpo okay!
Perez had no feel for the ball today he claimed as he not only lacked command but a clue as well but then again thatâ€™s Ollie Being Ollie.
