Here lies Jerry Manuel….

May 17, 2010

A moment of silence, please.

Sunday afternoon was a beautiful day on the Island, complete with sunny skies and a cool refreshing breeze.  However, instead of lounging on the beaches, firing up the BBQ, or taking a stroll with my girlfriend on the boardwalk, I decided to torture myself like I was starring in Saw 7 and plop on the couch to catch the Mets/Marlins game.  The “Amazins” were attempting to impede a four-game sweep at the hands of the fish.  The contest began like a scene out of Groundhog’s day, as the third inning came equipped with defensive follies, clutch hitting by the opponent, and an injury to a pitcher to boot.  All things that Mets fans have become accustom to  for the past 10 plus seasons.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Microcosm of the Mets failure

January 28, 2010

Coming off a season in which the team lost 92 games and had to endure injury after injury, you would think  Omar Minaya and the Mets would do everything they could to ensure “The Amazing’s” would put an elite squad on the field for 2010.  Rewind to the collapses of ’08 and ’07, and it becomes even more vital that the ownership rejuvenate a disgruntled fan base.

Plenty have knocked Omar and the Wilpons over the past few months for their lack of aggressiveness and downright ineptitude, so I won’t put them on full blast anymore. 

Instead, I’d like to take a look at two players who exemplify everything that is wrong with the Mets — Daniel Murphy and Luis Castillo.  Read the rest of this entry ?
