Give ‘em hell, Curt. They deserve every grumpy word. They do NOT have to be playing like this. There’s no way I can be convinced this is necessary. I don’t have to look any further than Escobar’s pullswings at Moyer to know that this team isn’t being run right.
Even my Wild Card hopes are kind of “meh…”, not because I don’t think they can make it, but because even if they do, they’re not gonna suddenly play up to their potential. The team seems diseased. There, that’s as dark as I’ll be.
We might win this series, or Mets migh out-lose us. But if we don’t, I’m putting the Braves on probation:
1. I’m not watching/ listening to live games until they act right. If they win a game, I’ll watch the mlb.com condensed game the next day. (Those are neat. No commentary, just crowd noise. I mean “crowd” noise.)
2. If they lose, I’ll just skip it and rent a movie. I can find 162 movies worth my attention over this mess. I want a fun summer.
3. If they get their act together, I’ll watch live games again.
That’s only if they lose the Mets series. Though, if Francoeur gets a 3-hit night, I might pull the trigger anyway. So, STRAIGHTEN UP, Bravos, or your days of freely commanding my 3-hour attention are over. (I hate to scare them so bad, but desperate times…)
“Cox said Escobar and Glaus just getting a day off, insisted Escobar move had nothing “to do with slump or his play on the DP last night.”
Yeah, you know what Bobby? Don’t be in such an all fired hurry to soothe these guys’ worries.
Also, if Terry Pendleton takes the reigns next year, AND they continue cutting costs, I’m pretty sure I’m outta here. Life’s too short.
Ok, here’s how it went down. Somebody hit right to chipper and Frenchy (of course) was already headed home. Chip fired it to B Mac. The Macster caught it with both hands and held fast. Frenchy half heartedly tried to run him over to no avail. What do we know about Met’s bullpen?
Don’t know much about the Mets’ pen. I know it would be handy if we could hit it hard and wear it out for the rest of the series. As far as I know, there’s nobody on the level with Moylan, Saito, or Wagner except their closer, K-Rod.
