Re: New York Mets 2009: Citi Field Inaugural Edition

If Ollie is being sent to the pen, then I'm guessing he wasn't so supportive of a move to the minors. I can also see why the mets can't just claim an injury and send him due to the union, ollie whining, etc.

I lost a little respect for him after this, pretty crappy thing to do, especially since the minors is a good place for him to work out some things without any pressure.

Onto the game which isn't going so well...

David Wright with a 2 run bomb to put the Mets up by one.
Maybe these guys found their marbles.

Re: New York Mets 2009: Citi Field Inaugural Edition

I would like to challenge you all to try to answer these questions as objectively as possible, and then state whether you think they have a legitimate shot at the playoffs (keeping in mind how mediocre the division appears to be):

Do you expect:

(1) Maine to improve and have a solid year?
(2) Pelfrey to improve and have a solid year?
(3) Wright to improve and have a solid year?
(4) Reyes to improve and have a solid year?
(5) the relievers to end up being among the best in the league?
(6) Murphy to continue to produce at the same level?
(7) Castillo to continue to produce at the same level?
(8) Beltran to continue to produce at the same level?

My answers to the first four questions are affirmative, and I think those are the most important questions on the list. I think the answers to the last four may be negative, but I don't think they matter as much.

Hence, I still expect the Mets to have a reasonable shot at making the playoffs.

they gave him a 3 year extension in the middle of the collapse last year, i doubt they fire him

but they really should

I don't know who is responsible for this decision, but any incompetent could tell you that this is the worst possible option.

I have been a Mets' fan since my first game in 1972. I, as all Mets' fans, have been through a lot in rooting for this team for so long, from the miserable teams of the mid-70s and early-80s, to trading Tom Seaver for a used catcher's mask, to the disappointments of 85, 87, 88, etc., to Kenny Rogers, to losing to the Yankees in the WS, to Victor Zambrano, to the two epic collapses of the past two years ... and I, as all Mets' fans, have stuck with them through all of this nonsense.

But I have to say that this may be it for me. This is a mickey mouse rinky dink piece of crap organization, with a new park that's got more Dodgers' stuff in it than Mets', with seats behind home plate that don't let you see the whole field, with a team that doesn't hustle, doesn't play fundamentally sound baseball, with largely bad signings, and now this. They have no commitment to winning. A commitment to winning would have been either sending him to the minors or DL'ing him if he refused. Yet Manuel says he wasn't even asked to go to the minors. Incredible.

I tell you, I've really had it with this group. I hope I am wrong, and they go on a streak, and my butt his firmly planted on my couch watching them race into first, but I don't see it, and moves like this give me no confidence whatsoever. And I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the excuses. I'm tired of the stupid GM tricks. I'm tired of not sliding, not backing up, swinging at the first pitch after two walks when the pitch is at your ankles, relievers who walk the lead off man, blah blah.

Give me the teams from the 70s. These teams sucked. Hard. But they played hard. They gave their best. And in 1981, which was a strike season, when this putrid squad of Mets were within a few games of first late in the second-half part of the season, the fans were into it. I was into it. I'm not now.

I hope we look back on this post in September, and everyone is laughing at me for overreacting like the mental patient fan I belittle. I'm not feeling it now though. This feels a lot more like '91 and '92 than '86, or '00, or '06.
this is my favorite niss post ever.

i have nothing else to add, except i couldnt have said it better myself
