The Jerry Manuel era begins tonight. The question is obvious: Will things change?
tomg: When the Mets were in Denver a few weeks ago I wrote they should bench Reyes for a game or two when his attitude went unchecked. I got roasted for that.-JD
okay, so who’s exhausted and mentally shot besides me?
..... Yes, Santana has pitched terribly so far tonight, but this is his 1st bad start in a while, but I forgot; according to some people, $138 million means you have to be perfect every start, otherwise you get your balls ripped out by anonymous fans…
I know this is really going to hurt but the next Santana is????
Kazmir, he is the next Santana while the real Santana is now going to pitch for the mets between the age of 30-35, geez I got a stomach ache.
I can imagine JD…
I was hoping that Kevin Burkhardt would have broken in on the broadcast by now with some sense about what happened in the first innning
Boy that new pitching guru Dan Warthen is something.
In his new Mets uniform, he looks like a toll booth collector masquerading as a baseball player.
And check his career pitching resume:
A 2-10 won-lost record and 5.30 ERA with the ‘76 Expos…
A walk to strikeout ratio of 43 walks to 27 strikeouts the next year…
And no wins in five tries in his last year, 1978.
Now that inspires confidence, does it not?
Oh, there Warthen is now, imparting wisdom on the bench to Johan Santana.
Johan, you should put an index finger in each ear and loudly say “lalalalalalalala!” every time this man attempts to advise you.
He’s no Rick “Tuscany Tile” Peterson.
wow tomg, you are really reaching back for the source of your headache. We gotta forget Kazmir already, and Nolan Ryan too…
``Tuscany Tile.’’ That will go down as one of the great quotes of all time.-JD
Man that Peterson was way out there. He’s sounded like one of those Harri Krishna followers, all he needed was the white robe and tambourine, and a girl hopping around throwing rose petals in the air..
Yea Joe D, I know, I got diarrhea thinking about it. This team blows and I blame Omar Minaya. Where is Tiffany, she wanted Willie gone. Tiffany, do you see a difference in this team, if so, elaborate. I would love to hear your opinion.
Meanwhile, my Lakers are getting crushed. Down by 27 with less than a minute to go in the 3rd.
So if Reyes is hurt, is Easley our SS or do we go to Minaya’s very talented farm system to bring up…. Anderson Hernandez and his 1 something batting average? If Reyes is not hurt does Jerry bench him for a couple days or suspend him? I’m into this new manager stuff now. We have a new soap opera! Will the new boss gain the respect of his legion of spoiled brats or will he lose the clubhouse on night one? tune into the fan to hear the controversy rage.
By the way, the new coaching staff looks like they all just got out of the hospital for some sort of disease, diabetes, etc…
Joe D: Peterson hopped a magic carpet to the Texas plains, where he hopes to recruit devotees to a ketchup-on-ice cream eating cult.
Jose back in dugout smiling and chatting with Manuel. That’s good to see on multiple levels.
My suggestion to Peterson is to lay off the Marijuana, especially the hydro. It could alter your perception of the situation.
Here are the levels:
1)Reyes is an immature brat
2)Reyes is lucky his manager didn’t send him back to the hotel for stamping his feet earlier
3)Reyes should be contrite and solemn, not acting as if he’s Will, clowning on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”
F@@k Reyes, I’ve had it with that spoil brat.
Wow, i love it, on a different topic it’s great to see the celtics kick the living crap out of the lakers and Bryant. I love it, screw LA!!!!
Peterson was last seen at the airport describing the importance of a good hard wood to whoever would listen, and listening to “Incense and Peppermints” on his IPOD. He is trying to get directions to Austin Power’s Shagadelic pad.
Gil—the levels I meant were:
1) Given that he was smiling, he’s probably not hurt seriously, which is good.
2) While I agree that his conduct in the 1st was totally unacceptable, I’m glad that he returned to the dugout and appeared to be apologetic (I’m watching the Angels feed, so they only showed a couple shots).
HELLO JERRY!! HOW COME YOU RAN DOWN TO TALK TO REYES?! WHAT! ARE YOU TOO GOOD FOR THE GAME?! YOUR COUSIN JEFFREY WORKS IN THE PARKS DEPARTMENT! MAYBE HE CAN GET WILLIE A JOB! I ALWAYS KNEW YOU LOVED HIM!
OK met fans, here is something to think about. Santana will be pitching for the mets the next 5 years between the age of 30-35. His fastball is already down from 95 to now 90-92. It will only get worse from here. How well do you think this guy will pitch for the mets?
Reyes left the game with stiffness in his left hamstring. Day-to-day. ... On another note, I couldn’t agree more with tomg. Go Celtics. Just can’t stomach the Lakers and that smug Phil Jackson.-JD
I knew there was a reason why I liked your blog, keep it going man, your ok in my books and I don’t care what they say about you.
Stillsane: LOL! on your Peterson take.
Jesse: For his sake, I hope he apologized. What other work environment can you think of—besides the Mets dugout—where an employee can embarrass the boss and throw objects around and not get sanctioned for it?
I guarantee you if I tried a stunt like that tomorrow at work, I’d expect to be posting a resume on monster.com by 5 p.m.
JERRY, HELLO! HAVEN’T I ALWAYS BEEN A GOOD UNCLE TO YOU?! NOW GO OUT THERE AND WIN!
I think Santana will be a very good pitcher for the Mets throughout his tenure… He has very good command, and he seems like the guy who could make the necessary changes to compensate for losing something (Like Pedro, except less injury prone)
Sigh… my Lakers are losing by 36… WTG Kobe, way to freaking go…
ohk go jerry go on with your fancy game, just leave your uncle leo alone.
It’s ironic, half my cousin’s and family are from Brooklyn, NY, the other half are from Boston. Lets go Celtics and red sox!!!!!
Jerry, Im a little insulted
Jerry, are you sponge worthy?
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, Hey, hey, good bye!!!!!!!!
Jerry, Luis Castillo is not a midget, he is a little person!
Sometimes, you’ve gotta roll the hard six.
so when does the “fire jerry” movement start?
Jerry! Ryan Church is an Anti-Semite!
How about “Fire Omar Minaya”
I think SNY”S Kevin Burkhart just got himself another year of sitting in the ball parks eating free food and getting paid a boat load of money after giving his loving butt kissing about how bad Omar feels.
Kevin Burkhart is just another a@@ kissing, butt f@@king mets employer.
Met Head: The whole time Burkhardt was talking about how Omar found it so difficult to fire Willie, I’m thinking, he had a choice, he didn’t have to fire him.
Then I forgot about Jeff’s hand inside a slot inside Omar’s back, manipulating him…
tomg: How do you REALLY feel about Kevin Burkhardt?
5-1 I can se Willie now.. Sitting in front of his TV, drinking a beer, smoking a big cigar and happy he is out of this mess.
I’ve never seen a team my entire life get there butt handed to them like the Lakers are getting tonight, unbelievable!!!!. I love it, it’s awesome. How do you like me now Phil Jackson?
I hear Jeff Wilpon is giving free tours of the new stadium in the morning.
Well, our ace was pitching tonight. What a ace, he is worth 22 million, not. Mets organization is still the laughing stock of the the major leagues. Do not blame the messenger, blame the organization!!!!!
Gil In Savannah – wow I thought we ended this crappo, TOMG IS ENTITLED TO HIS OPINION no need to be disrespectful and publicly bash him?
John Lackey is putting on a pitching clinic tonight: Five out of seven innings throwing 10 pitches or less and not one 20-pitch frame. Talk about economizing.
And what an arsenal of pitches.
I hear Jeff Wilpon is leaking news about firing Giuesspe Franco.
