Things Not Great in Mets-Ville These Days

The Mets have suffered a rash of injuries recently, seeing some of their best players like Jose Reyes and Carlos Delgado forced onto the DL; it looks like the loss of Reyes is really going to hurt the Mets, since they apparently have decided to forgo the shortstop position and realign their defense. It’s radical but it just might work…

    great, let’s give that to a non red sox fan, and I think those thoughts would come out a little different.

    whatevs. I called for it, and you answered, so props to you, sir. props. to. you.

    anyway, what’s on the docket for tomorrow? fernando martinez’ pop up gaffe? or a daniel murphy has a great day at the plate, BUT….

    things are bad in mets-ville either, having recently taken 2-of-3 from your precious (and much more healthy) red sox squad. plus, they just swept the nats. which means after 4 straight losses, they’ve won 5 of 6.

    these scrubs have some moxie.

    and by scrubs, i mean the pitching has been good and all mets fans should be writing thank you cards to gary sheffield right now. $450,000 has never bought so many wins.

    now please, someone put ramon martinez down. (has anyone noticed that he also has that mark texiera head turn all the way facing the pitcher, so it looks like it’s about to twist off. too bad he doesn’t hit like tex to back it up.)

    i’d rather watcher tatis play SS.

      thats the first time in history someone has pointed to sweeping the Nats as being a sign another team is being successful. The Mets DID win the Sox series and i was most disappointed by that, but so it goes. I really wasn’t making this a anti-mets screed I just liked this picture.

      but since you two are both protesting so much i must be onto something…

    well, “aren’t that bad” is a far cry from “great!”

    look, if you DON’T sweep the nats, things are bad. if you lose a series to the nats, it’s TERRIBLE. and the nats have had the mets’ number for the last couple of years — being a team that is largely comprised of mets cast-offs who have apparently sworn revenge on sterling mets, inc.

    and winning a series with the red sox with a third string SS and two major hitters missing from the line up is pretty f’in good.

    but that depth chart is sad and scary. are they even carrying a full roster?

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.
