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)

Off-Day Blather: Jerry's Kids Can't Contain Kaz Mat and other Houston Hazzards

At least Junction Jack was kind enough to visit the Mets in the hospital.

How bad is it?

So bad, I was relieved when Robinson "Crazy Legs" Cancel broke for third like a prize ass, because I knew it would save David Wright the trouble of FAILing again with RISP. Hopefully the balleyhooed boy wonder will grow into his role next year, WHICH IS TO COME THROUGH WITH A BIG RBI WHEN THE TEAM NEEDS HIM, and then we can justify all the smoke we have blown up his ass.

So bad, I expected Tsuyoshi Shinjo would be announced as a pinch hitter for the Astros, and I fully expected that he would take Shownblow's sorry ass yard.

Shinjo checks the man junk on this dummy.

So bad, Kaz Matsui easily outclassed ANY Met on the field. Based on this series, I daresay a time machine-Jim Duquette, deposited on the scene here in 2008, would sign the Japanese phenom again to play shortstop.

So bad, that even though the Mets are technically in a division race, fans are happy to get a look at prospects such as Kunz, Murphy, Evans, etc. With disaster striking--the team back to sucksville, and mediocre Maine and Countrytime Lemon on the shelf for a while at best, we welcome any slim hopes we can wrap our arms around.

Kudos to the headline intern who penned the "Delgado Awaits His Fate with the Yankees" line. You sure got my attention.
