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

Broken Mets in Webbcast*

Nothing doing.

Those two words best describe the Mets performance versus the D-backs. Another day, another semi-blown call against the Mets at second? Perhaps, but the reminiscent-of-2004 B-Squad couldn't do much against Webb, and there's not too much shame in that, they didn't have Super Joe to supply that pop from the clean-up spot. The loss at the hands of Brandons does go against the "As Jose Goes, so Go the Mets" theory, since Reyes contributed 2 hits to balance out an offense-deflating caught stealing.

There may be some shame coming in the Mets relief picture. "Hello" Mota came into a close, winnable game and left the barnyard door wide open giving up 3 runs in 2 innings of work. Should he go back on the juice, and is Omar kicking himself for signing Mota? Let the debate begin!

Speaking of shame, is their a lesson for young people in the fact that Jason Giambi tore the plantar fascia in his left foot while trotting around second base after hitting a home run? That is El Duque territory. Or maybe it's just what happens when you abuse performance enhancing drugs. It's still amusing, unless the Yankers use it to get out from under the ex-injector's contract as they have threatened in the past, especially they are about to get tagged with a Clemens contact and are currently one rung from the bottom of the AL East ladder.

Don't look now, but the Br*ves are just 3.5 games back. Now some might say that Carlos Zambrano's altercation in the Cubs dugout today should make Mets fans think twice before dreaming about his acquisition, but, hey at least someone is passionate about beating the Br*ves!
