Many Mets fans hated Kaz Matsui and found him an easy target to boo _ just because he didn’t play baseball the way they expected. We should be so tough with our politicians who fail us in more important ways.
And, I don’t mean the president. I mean on the local level where more quality-of-life decisions are made.
“I am disappointed I couldn’t produce and live up to the expectations of me,’’ Matsui said a few minutes ago.
That really takes some stones to do.
I know, I know, it’s easy to be stand-up because he’ll still get his $20.1 million. Even so, nobody likes to admit failure.
The post-Matsui era begins with this lineup tonight:
SS Jose Reyes
C Paul Lo Duca
CF Carlos Beltran
1B Carlos Delgado
3B David Wright
2B Jose Valentin
RF Endy Chavez
LF Lastings Milledge
RHP Steve Trachsel
