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

    David Wright has enough energy to steal bases--do you think he could run out a grounder? The guy gets thrown out by 3 or 4 steps regardless of where the ball is hit. As for the sweep--I expected this, even as we were spanking the Cardinals, who, by the way, are a bad first place team. This may be the worst met lineup of all time. If the mets had gotten themselves a well paid, good hitting corner outfielder in the off season they would not be in such dire straits. Sheffield has done some good things but he is hardly a revelation at forty. It appears Jerry had Ryan Church right too. Unless the concussions have permanently scrambled his brains, he looks like a lazy, dumb, disinterested player to me. And he hits very few balls hard. Fernando is not ready. Murphy is dumb. Argenis Reyes is a joke. Cora is worn to the nubs. Castillo cannot hit a ball far enough to score a man from third. And Tatis should not bat fifth in a Little Sisters of the Poor lineup. Come to think of it, WE ARE the Little Sisters of the Poor. It is one thing to be bad. It is another to be boring as hell.

    what remains depressing is that Delgado is not going to come back in any kind of shape, god only knows when if ever Reyes will be back and Beltran, who knows, maybe he'll pull a Reyes as well. I don't see that there's any realistic hope this is going to get better say, after the All Star break. Sadly, the Mets may have already hit their high point of the season.

    I think neither Beltran, Reyes, Putz, Maine or Delgado will come back this season as anything like they were before. Perez will be back - not too confident that it is a good thing though.

    It's over. None of those guys were very good before they got injured and why anyone thinks their return will necessarily do anything is beyond me. The only guy that hustles is a 40 yr old nut case. Wright hasn't hit an rbi since Beltran went down raising the legitimate issue of what PEDS he stopped doing this year (sugary cereal). Stokes shows us why Jerry doesn't use him. Looper is beating the Mets easily. I don't recognize the people pitching for the Mets anymore.
    If the Mets enthusiastically endorse any of the following things this winter, I will find a new team:

    *Letting a single met participate in WBC baseball.
    *Gutting the farm for anything less than Santana.
    *Having no plan for developing young talent.
    *Having no young talent.
    *Thinking one or two legitimate starters is enough for a contender.
    *Thinking defense is an afterthought.

    You've inspired me to put Scanners on my Netflix queue. Hopefully it's on the instant viewing list so I can watch it in lieu of Mets-Pirates tomorrow.

    you'd really think there'd be more pictures of exploding heads on the internets. I didn't realize when I started using them in lieu of analysis that there'd be so few options. shame on you, mankind's wide world of web.
