GOING ON A COVERT MISSION

Since I had no plans for today myself and the heir to the Kranepool Society mis-fortune decided totake a trip up to the Boogie Down to see the Highlanders-Indians  game this afternoon.  Amazingly, this will be our first trip to the new Stadium. My second new stadium experience in three days as Friday night we ventured to Harrison NJ to see the NY Red Bulls with my daughter’s soccer team.  Tomorrow I will have a whole lot more on my experiences in both places.

Ah Murph!!!!!!! You make that play inning over and maybe the game and back to the magic .500 level of mediocrity but in order to get offense into the lineup, TC has to make these type of moves.

D.J. Carrasco has been pitching very well for Buffalo so he gets the call back to the big club and Dale Thayer goes back to doing whatever it is Dale Thayer does.

HoJo, really Hojo, stop with your critique of TC and the Mets handling of Jason Bay. You look very small and petty when you do this; you don’t hear Collins ripping you for ruining David Wright do you? Maybe you’re the one that screwed up Jason Bay beyond repair. There’s a reason you are no longer a member of the organization you know.

WHEW!!!!!!!! IT’S HOTTER THAN JOSE REYES !!!

Why can’t every game be like last night’s Mets-Brewers game? A solid 6 inning by Chris Capouano in his return to Milwaukee, and 9 up 9 down by Beato, Izzy and Frankie Rodz add in a 2 run triple for Jose Reyes and you have a Mets fans paradise.

No way will Jose Reyes be traded by the Mets, no way.  Somehow, some way the Mets will sign Reyes to a new deal. When it was first mentioned that trading Reyes was on the same level as when Tom Seaver was dealt I thought that was ridiculous but now I can see that  the departure of Reyes could be the move, that straw that breaks the fan base’ back.  Mets fans of my generation will be very angry and maybe we won’t go to as many games or maybe we won’t make watching games on SNY a nightly event but even as distasteful a thought of not seeing Reyes at short, I’ll still call myself a Mets fan. It’s too late for me to switch my baseball allegiance but I could see the 30 and under crowd turning on the organization and heading elsewhere if Jose Reyes becomes an ex-Met due to money. This is a very serious issue that the Skill Sets, Minority Einhorn and Sandy Alderson have to seriously take into account when dealing with Jose Reyes. If the Mets let Jose Reyes go, then you might as well turn Citi Field into Old Trafford.  I can’t see Reyes wearing a diferent uni ,  I just can’t .

They did play soccer last night at Citi Field and it looks as if it was a success. The only problem I see is the fans are really far away from the pitch. It was smart of whoever put this match together to pick two teams from countries that make up the biggest percentage of the boro of Queens population, Ecuador and Greece.  The Ecuadorian players however, had issues with the MO-ZONE.

By the way, I am going to my first professional soccer game on Friday as my daughter’s soccer team got tickets for the Red Bulls-Revolution game at Red Bull Arena. One more venue to add to my list.

I bought one of these t-shirts. You should too.

Ok I’m out of ideas on what to do with Jason Bay and I think Terry Collins is as well.
