SNY Guys Get Head Start Ripping New Manager, "Unconscious" Carter

They can't be Sirius!

It looks like negative camerawork isn't the only weapon in SNY's vicious anti-manager arsenal. There's a report from somewhere or another detailing the on-air chastising of the Kid. Ah, hell, let's quote the entire report:

Keith Hernandez ripped his former New York Mets teammate, Gary Carter, during Sunday's game on New York television station WPIX, calling him "unconscious" in the wake of Carter openly campaigning for the managerial job currently occupied by Willie Randolph.

"I have great respect for Gary as a player," said Hernandez, now a TV analyst. "He's a Hall of Famer. When Johnny Bench left the game, he was the premier catcher in the National League.

"But, that being said, and I've kept quiet for such a long time, but for the people out there listening, just go in the dictionary and look up 'unconscious' and you'll find a picture of Gary Carter.

"I know that's strong, but it just happens too many times and it's just, you're walking around unconscious."

Carter said in a Sirius Satellite Radio interview Friday that he had reached out to the Mets when he learned Randolph's job might be in jeopardy.

He softened those comments Saturday in an interview with WFAN.

Before Hernandez's shot at Carter, play-by-play man Gary Cohen said: "Regardless of what happens, you can't be any more indelicate or graceless than Gary Carter was in saying the things he said about being available to take over the job. I just cannot believe that Carter said what he said."

Unconscious? I know there was no love lost between Mex and the Kid, but I just don't know what the hell Keith is talking about. Even so, I think I agree with him.

Well, I'll be damned, look what i found!

Let's not talk of the game.

So Ryan Church is taking at bats and saying things like this:

"I could feel like this and hit, that's fine. I just don't want to be like this in the outfield. I could hurt myself or somebody else.

"When I make a quick movement, I just stop and go 'Woo.' I don't want to be out there trying to track a fly ball. Next time I go out there, I'm going out with a football helmet, with a New York emblem on the side."

So he can't stand in right field without going "Woo" and the Mets apparently feel ok putting this guy in the way of a 95 mph fastball. What next from the Mets medical staff, teach Jose Reyes how to run? The Mets are letting their malaise distract them from taking proper care of their concussed employees. And I'm not talking about Keith.


Also, let's not speak of the game.


Can you match the picture on the left with the face? It's not too hard, but then neither is realizing that championships are not won with brittle, declining has beens doting a line up, fixing a criminally deficient bullpen in the off-season, or planning a contingency upon the predictable loss of 2/5's of your oft-injured rotation. image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

    IMFM, the conscience of the Mets (I saw YOUR picture at the LA Met fans get-together, but couldn't pick you out of that "lineup").
