KnuckleBalls!! Mets Left Holding Their Dickey Again

               "Bye-bye Jerry! What's that you say? You're waving hello?"

I don't have any interest in re-caping last night's game wherein the Mets lost to a superior franchise, I just wanted to put out a lewd blog post to celebrate the Mets latest knuckleballing attraction. Unfortunately, this song didn't have its desired effect.  Now that the end is near, I have already turned my full attentions to scratching my head about how this team could be so bad. That and doing some research on Bob Melvin, because I'm curious what difference it will make if the Mets jettison Jerry at some point in the near future.

Jose Reyes is now hitting .210.

Angel Pagan might not be a naturally gifted base runner, but when there is only one choice to make as there is during an in-the-park homerun gallop ("keep running"), he does ok.

Finally, a new, non-derivative, worthwhile Met blog! It's been a long time since someone did something interesting.

    I'm going to refrain from the 'taking out Dickey' jokes, but my favorite part is when Jerry pinch hit Alex Cora, and then proceeded to burn 3relievers in the next inning. Dickey was pitching well, and he's a spot starter whose pitch counts should have no bearing on your game plan. Of course, he's also a soft tossing knuckleballer. Leave him in and rest the bullpen. This is a no brainer. And why not pinch hit David Wright? Granted he sucks, but he's better than Cora. Mismanaging the bench, starter, and bullpen all at the same time. All in a day's work for Captain Jerry. The (well deserved) bull's eye on this guys back has to be the size of Ramon Castro's head at this point.

    Thanks for the linkage! Remember, every time you link to Mets Fan Fiction, Razor Shines a little brighter (if everyone does it, he will be walking shininess itself).
