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)

IMFM *&^%$#!?! Slump Edition: I'm a Mets Connoisseur.

Connoisseur. It's hard to spell, but that's what I am, a connoisseur of the game. Crack the Courvoisier and join me for some observations:

Pirates. Third worst team in the league. I looked it up.

Jo No! Jose Valentin (.125) starting to really hear the Boos, replacing Pedro (.071) as a pinch hitter. Is it too early to throw fruit?

Mets handcuffed by another nobody, Snell or something. But they have to beat the bad teams and that they did.

Was that Jose Reyes' first tentative "thank you god" point to heaven after legging out a run-scoring triple on a dangerously wet field?

Kaz Mat laying down a perfect bunt and oh so almost staying upright on his way to first, oh so almost scoring Jose Reyes from third and providing the run that would have held up to win the game. Then the obligatory strike out looking in the 8th with an insurance run at third. Then he insists on getting in front of a playable grounder and boots it. The curse of Shinjo lives on.

HEAD Castro (.407), just too dangerous to pitch to. Well, ok maybe not, but at least he walked twice.

Enjoying some classic Burnitz strikeouts.

Bucs slogan: "We Will. Rise Again."

50+ bags of "Soil Master" used to keep the field dry. That's less than it took for Anna Benson to...Oh no you didn't!

Is Chavez (.314, 4 for 5, nice catch last night) trying to Willy Tavaras Carlos Beltran (.250)?

Berto meets Franco. 3 pitches. Nap. Three more pitches.

Billy Wagner, inheriting the mantle of John Franco? Making it interesting? Blowing the game? Is there a god?

Carlos Delgado--slump proof.

Pedro had to have gone home and kicked his midget tonight, but hey he's still loss-less. Mets don't really deserve it, but go another game up on the Br*ves with Atlanta's loss.
