Fish are Terrible, but Mets are Uggla-ier

Really, why hasn't this team been contracted yet? Just for clarification, I am talking about the Florida Marlins, the opponents of your New York Metropolitan ball club last night. Jerry Manuel tried to lose this one all on his own last night, perhaps getting tired of all the Willie Randolph comparisons. When Manuel went out to question John Maine, then returned to the dugout, leaving Maine, concentration newly broken, in long enough to fucking blow the Met lead, then came and took him out, the game was probably lost. It was the most irritating fucking game in recent memory. In fact, if you didn't catch it, then I'll spare you the details. It's the humane thing to do.
Above, two of the dumbest jackasses to ever hold a microphone. And to the right, two donkeys with microphones.

Besides a horrible Met performance and losing to a bunch of AAA players, the worst thing was getting stuck with the Fish Feed. Watching the FSN broadcasters Rich Waltz and Tommy Hutton is like having two extremely unlikable douches who also happen to know next to nothing about baseball talk at you for 2-3 hrs during a baseball game. That is not a simile. Waltz and Hutton, if that's their real names, are like Fran Heely, drained of charm, insight and hospitality. I can't stress this enough, they suck big nasty round things. The worst part is on the rare occasion when the game turns in favor of the Marlins (the Mets win most of the games in Florida), the shit faces, in true coward-wanker form, start to bait the Metsfans in their audience. How could these prize asses even know we were watching? No one else watches the Marlins I guess.

Shownblow was the goat of the day, but that's nothing too new for him. Everyday Dan Uggla tried to throw the game away with his daily error. But the Mets pen could not do shit to stem the Fish comeback. Then the Mets proceeded to go meekly into high-as-a-kite Kevin Gregg, who thought he could fool us by donning sunglasses during a night game. The umps sucked. If you missed it, count yourself lucky.

    Wow. Commenter number one, that seems a little unwarranted. Is there some private animosity going on here?

    I just signed in to write a trivial, mild comment agreeing that the Marlins announcers were bad. But I feel I may be interrupting something?

    Anyway, at one point the Marlins broadcasters said that they were sure that the New York TV announcers would make a big deal out of Uggla's bad performance at the All Star game, while ignoring his good record so far. Don't those TV guys all know each other? Isn't there a sort of fraternity of ex-baseball players who are color commentatiors? I don't think I ever heard a TV announcer dis another one that way. Stupid AND unprofessional!!

    And very shortly after that comment, Uggla made a bonehead play, which pleased me greatly.

    I think commenter one is upset I stole his animated asses.
    Katherine, they pointed to Uggla's fielding percentage (!) right before he foolishly threw a ball into the dugout. I wonder what his throwing percentage is? Besides their general incompetence, I think they may have violated the brotherhood as you say because they are so isolated and alienated from the rest of the broadcasters because no one cares about the Marlins no matter how good they do. They probably feel dissed--get cut in the buffet line by broadcasters from reputable organizations and that sort of thing-- all the time, leading to occasional outbursts of unprovoked bitterness.

    commenter one was clearly Rich Waltz, who managed to pull his fingers out of his arse long enough to type those words of genius although it did take 6 hours to compose because his fingers kept sticking to the keys. I don't subscribe to the MLB tv thing, just the radio one so even away games I still get to listen to WFAN's ding bats instead of the Triple AAA, third-rate muppets who do some of these backwater baseball broadcasts like the minor league Marlins or the Atlanta Braves. By the way, Rich Waltz is Dan Uggla's cabana boy in the offseason.

    Haters... just because you lost to a team that is equally as talented as you are. Yes, it may have been a rude comment. Maybe that's because of all the New York influence here in Miami.

    Is it too late to throw in a comment about this site having a sweet ass?

  • At 9:45 PM, Blogger Itsmetsforme said…

    hey give that anonymous person credit for returning to assess the reaction. If he or she really were a Fish fan, they'd hate the broadcasters more than we do, so I'm skeptical.

    Jaap it is clear that Uggla has something of a sexual nature on Waltz.

    Dan it is never too late for ass.
