Cialis kanada

Cialis kanada Roberto Alomar had one of the more bizarre tenures as a NY Met. Cialis kanada How did a now Hall of Fame player, cialis kanada go from hitting .336/.415/.541 with 30 stolen bases and 100 RBI along with 113 runs scored topped off with 66 xbh along with an All Star appearance, cialis kanada Gold Glove Award and a fourth place finish in the MVP vote in 2001, cialis kanada become a underachieving malingering  pariah as a NY Met in 2002?

Cialis kanada Talk about your unsolved mysteries. Cialis kanada Alomar just could not find comfort in Queens. Cialis kanada He never fit in with the Mets. Cialis kanada Maybe it was going from a first place Indians team to a losing situation with the Mets? Maybe all the baggage that Alomar checked in with at Shea Stadium, cialis kanada the Hrishbeck spitting saga which weighed on him considerably and the constant meddling of fans and media about his sexual preference led to his down fall with the Mets, cialis kanada I don’t know but I do know that he was one of the most hated Mets of all time.

Cialis kanada When the deal was made though, cialis kanada we Mets fans were a giddy bunch even praising Smarmy Steve Phillips for obtaining a talent of Alomar’s caliber but we didn’t get the 2001 Roberto Alomar, cialis kanada instead we received a cheap knock off. Cialis kanada It sure was a bad time to come to Mets as a “savior” or a difference maker and not produce and also come off as a malcontent. Cialis kanada The club came off a great 2000 by winning the NL Penannt but losing to the Highlanders in the World Series. Cialis kanada In 2001 the Mets got off to an awful start but rebounded in the second half of the season with a 44-29 recorded but the club faltered down the stretch and most folks didn’t care at that point as we all dealt with the attack on September 11th. Cialis kanada  So on December 11th of 2001 when it was announced that the Mets had made a deal with the Indians for Alomar, cialis kanada it brought hope to Mets fans that this move would get the team back into a post season berth. Cialis kanada No need for revisionist history of the failure all around the organization during this time but Roberto Alomar was the guy who took the bulk of the beating from Mets fans, cialis kanada venting their frustration with boos and cat calls until he was mercifully dealt to the Chicago White Sox in 2003.

Cialis kanada In a story in the NY Times the day after he was dealt to the White Sox, cialis kanada some evidence of Alomar’s unhappiness came out:

Cialis kanada Exactly why Alomar was not himself in 222 games with the Mets will seemingly remain a mystery. Cialis kanada Alomar said in a conference call with reporters yesterday that he liked New York, cialis kanada and he made sure to add that he had great teammates.

Cialis kanada He did not sound as if he could cope with the malaise that came from losing, cialis kanada and the Mets lost 20 more games than they won while he was here.

Cialis kanada ”The team, cialis kanada maybe, cialis kanada I didn’t really feel comfortable with the situation, cialis kanada” said Alomar, cialis kanada who batted .265 with the Mets, cialis kanada far below his career average of .302. Cialis kanada ”Sometimes, cialis kanada teams don’t work for you. Cialis kanada I think the New York Mets weren’t the right team for me.”    

Cialis kanada When Alomar went to the South Side of Chicago, cialis kanada guess who greeted him as skipper of the Pale Hose, cialis kanada the Gangsta’ himself:

Cialis kanada There was not much doubt even at the start of the regular season that Alomar would be the Mets’ second baseman, cialis kanada but the team began to founder, cialis kanada and Alomar became a target of the fans, cialis kanada who thought he was not playing hard enough.

Cialis kanada  ”I’ve seen a lot of players have a tough time in New York, cialis kanada” Jerry Manuel, cialis kanada the manager of the White Sox, cialis kanada said in Chicago last night before his team beat Minnesota. Cialis kanada ”New York is a tough place to play.”

Cialis kanada Tough place to play, cialis kanada tough place to be a manager too.

Cialis kanada I’ll say this for Alomar with all the scandal that has followed him since leaving New York; his induction speech should be riveting.
