Test from handheld
Can you put back the recent blog responses on the right? I found it useful to see which had been responded to. Ocassionally I will go to the other blogs but I find the response entries more usefull.
Last nite I found a site that showed player salaries. I was interesting to see what the Mets make and how it relates to production.
All in all the middle to lower tier has been more productive.
Also the Mets are being subsidized by a lot of people. I think about 12 mil is coming from other teams.
Delgado also has one more year. Somehow I don’t think they will re-up.
First, Bob Evans died. Now, Delcos is going wireless. I don’t want to know what awaits me tomorrow…
To Benny (RE: Tomorrow)
I don’t know, either. But, it’s gotta be good.
And the correlation between Evan’s death and Delcos going wireless is?????????????????????????????????
Your guess is as good as mine.
Both are Ohio institutions…
Very strange stats:
*The Mets haven’t won a game in which their opponent scored 4 runs or more since May 29.
*The Mets have won only 8 games when opponents have scored 4 runs or more.
Might this speak to a weakness in the bullpen? An inability to muster more offense after the first few innings?
Gil- It is the latter. The team has not scored much at all between innings 5-8. They will occasionally beat up a closer in the 9th but they are doing nothing against middle relievers. I attribute some of that to missing Endy and the fact that Easley has been hurting…our pinch hitters are not exactly getting it done.
Very good points, SNK.
Hadn’t thought of those things.
By the way, I don’t know how many of you, including John, have iPods, but I just got one and one of my first purchases from the iTunes store is the actual NBC broadcast of Game 5 of the 1969 World Series – for only $1.99!
It’s unbelievable, from so many different standpoints – from the subdued mannerisms and behavior of both the players and the crowd, to the absence of flashy graphics and stats on the network broadcast.
And the sweetest part of course – Davey Johnson making the 3rd out. If we make it to the World Series this year, we’ve got to invite Davey. He’s been in uniform, on the field when we’ve won both our World Series.
I wrote too soon about players in 1969 seeming subdued…
Frank Robinson has a LoDuca-esque meltdown while at bat, disputing a swing call, arguing he’d been hit by the pitch. But – and perhaps because it was a World Series game – the ump didn’t run him.
