It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Off Base Since 2005! Mets commentary from the counter-intuitive to the unintuitive and all the intuitives in between. ** "Through the use of humor and gross inaccuracy...a certain truth can be gained." Rob Perri ** (pester me or follow me @itsmetsforme on twitter)

Petey's coconut


"Giles actually put something else in my coconut to learn from," Martinez said. "He ran like somebody was chasing him."That heads-up play put the Braves in front, 3-1, and Martinez, after 102 pitches, waved the white flag in the top of the seventh when he was replaced by a pinch hitter. Coming off a poor start last Wednesday at Shea, when he matched a career high by surrendering four home runs to the Phillies, Martinez was definitely better last night. It's just that he and the Mets weren't good enough to beat the Braves."I was as big as I could be," Martinez said. "I did whatever possible. I can't really predict when a guy's going to bounce the ball in front of the plate, then kill you with the speed like Giles did."
