DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIS-TORY, DON’T KNOW MUCH BI-OLOGY…..

The less said about yesterday’s game the better. Do I think Johan Santana is of sound body? HELL NO! Santana was asked if his problems of late are physical and he said no.  When asked a second time he said no, by the fourth or fifth time he finally broke down that he had an issue with his back that Bobby Ojeda said could have forced him to alter his delivery. Then there is the issue of his decrease in velocity and the question of whether Santana has a tired arm or (gulp!!!!!!) the dread DEAD ARM!!!.

Santana can claim he is fit to fight all he wants but why do I have a feeling he might accompany Gary Sheffield to New York Hospital for a special 2 for1 on MRI’s?    

 

 

This Date in Mets History, in 1969, Donn Clenedenon after turning down a trade from the expansion Montreal Expos to the Houston Astros, agreed to be traded to the New York Mets. Clink went on to be the 1969 World Series MVP

This Date in Mets History in 1983, The St. Louis Cardinals sent Keith Hernandez to the New York Mets after Mgr. Whitey Herzog had had enough of Hernandez and to teach him a lesson he was sent to the woebegon Mets. Hernandez who at first was miserable to be sent to NYC became the Captain of the Mets and lead the team to World Series Championship in 1986 and has become one of the most popular Mets of all time.

 

 

On This Date in Mets History in 1977 it was the Day The Music Died as The Franchise George Thomas Seaver, still the greatest player to ever wear a Mets uniform was sent to the Cincinnati Reds run out of town by to of the biggest scumbags to ever walk the earth in M. Donald Grant and Daily News baseball writer Dick Young. Seaver was and still is considered THE FRANCHISE and should have a staute of his famous pitching delivery outside of Ebbits$iti Field. Today Seaver, is a successful wine producer and Grant and Young are still burning in hell.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With Bill Wags rehabing from Tommy John surgery, Ollie Perez in la la land and with sore knee, John Maine with dead arm and now questions about Johan Santana’s health do you think Rick Peterson is getting a good laugh and maybe some vindication?

TUESDAY NIGHT? WHAT HAPPENED TUESDAY NIGHT?

Just a quick hit here as I had to participate in an emergency evacuation drill in out building this morning and I have to leave early as my wife has some business to take of and my kids have turned our home into a social club so someone has to be home to scream and yell at a bunch of kids so it’s my turn but a few things from last night:

 

I give up. I’ve got a headache from trying  to analyze this Mets team and trying to figure out how this season is going to end. Tuesday night I went to bed furious with the failure to hold a 7 run lead and last night I went to sleep dreaming of ticker tape falling from the skies of Lower Manhattan and Carlos Del GOD o holding the World Series MVP trophy. Talk about she loves me, she loves me not.

 

What bullpen problems? Brain Stokes to Feliciano Smith to Luis Ayala what’s wrong with that trio? I can’t believe you people were worried about the bullpen, PLEASE!

 

Mush Schoeneweis got his balls in an uproar after Tuesday night and was called into Warlord Jerry’s office before last night’s game. Supposedly both Mush and J-Man left the office smiling. J-Man for getting his point across to Mush to keep is unproductive pie hole shut and Mush for being able to walk out of the office on his own power. Seems Mush was pissed that he got up to throw a few times Tuesday and was a bit burned out when he had to come in. Mush forgets he is a decoy that gives the opposition hope that they can see him on the mound and light his ass up. J-Man was just letting him know that he was sorry for getting up so much as he had to use him as a last resort as the last thing J-Man wants to do is use Mush in a big spot.

 

J-Man’s albino brother Charlie got some explaining to do to the Philly fans for not brining Brad Lidge into the game in the 8th   Don’t get the guy up if your not going got use him C-Man.  Also for not giving that little prick Victorino the bunt sign in the 6th with runners on 1st and 2nd no out. You’re no Gangsta’ C-Man.

 

So we are right where we were when the Mets team bus pulled up to the Vault on Tuesday a half game in front. The Cheesesteakers now go to Wrigley to face the Cubs (root-root, root for the CCCCCUUUUUBBBIIIIIESSSS, if they don’t win it’s a shame) so lets have an Old Style and hope the North Siders help us out. The Mets go down to South Beach and will see old pal Paul LoDuca (another excellent move by Omar that has gone unnoticed not bringing back the washed up teen idol) at Shea Stadium South. The only thing I’ll miss about this series is listening to the Fish broadcasters bitch and moan about the pro-Mets crowd at the House that Dan Marino Built.
