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)

What time is it?

"Weeee. Hey, how far down does this thing go?"

What time is it?

4th of July?
Time to make the donuts?
Clutch my Lenny Dykstra rosary beads time?
time to hire Lou Pinnella?

That's right, the rumor is, instead of throwing a certain prize minor leaguer whose last name is Pelfrey in the double-header this weekend, the Mets will take a different path, and call up a pitcher with bats in his belfey.

This is all according to Adam Rubin in the Daily News, and the juicy little tidbits contained in his article. I think you know what time it is.

John Maine got ya down? Don't care about Soler? Read about Wonderboy Bannister's injury, from the horse's mouth:

Originally diagnosed with a Grade I hamstring strain, Bannister actually had a more severe partial tear in the middle of the hamstring, close to the sciatic nerve. In a May 18 rehab start he was forced to leave, Bannister felt pain in a tendon atop the hamstring - a different injury caused by overcompensating, which allowed doctors to detect the severity of the hamstring tear. "The resulting scar tissue that formed while healing was irritating the nerve and not allowing me to rehab at full capacity," Bannister wrote. "The scar tissue is now gone, the leg is approaching 100% and I will begin simulation games and rehab starts in the next two weeks."

Is it me, or is Joe Torre getting so ugly, that soon he will no longer be able to appear on camera?


Rickey Henderson had a tough week. First someone blackmailed him into wearing that obscene shirt on television (someone please get me a picure--it was only flashed on tv momentarily but is forever burnt into my retinas). Then, according to the doomsayer over at Newsday, the Mets lost his car. It's a good thing they're paying Rickey, 'cause Rickey knows where NY's other stadium is. Don't make Rickey pull a Strawberry/Cone on you.

Sometimes I get sad.

    It's okay, dude. Kazmir's gay. Just because I made that up on the spot doesn't mean that it's not true. And we can't have no gays on this Mets team.
