It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Off Base Since 2005! Mets commentary from the counter-intuitive to the unintuitive and all the intuitives in between. ** "Through the use of humor and gross inaccuracy...a certain truth can be gained." Rob Perri ** (pester me at:itsmetsforme@gmail.com or follow me @itsmetsforme on twitter)

Fatsos Finish Off Mets like Twinkie

I love this team, but they are pitiful. Getting NONE of the little things done. Mental mistakes, crappy bullpen, limp offense, metal errors. It should be dawning upon most of us that this is a nightmare we fans might not wake up from. Without Ron and Gary to keep me entertained I'd a turned this crap off tonight.

If it weren't for the suck ass relief pitching, the story of this loss would have been the mets running themselves out of the game. Seemingly caught stealing or in run downs at every pivitol moment. How much of this is Willie trying to be aggressive and how much is the player's initiative?

What now? Fire Hojo? One thing is for sure, its time to drop Beltran in the order. how does 8th sound? Or put him at 6th, and smooth his ego by telling him the NY times says this is the "prime run producing spot", and see how he does.

And it doesn't make matters better to get beaten by the very Art Howe-era mediocre players we just swept from the Mets system and replaced with wonderful wonderful players. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the worst first place team in recent memory. They have the talent, but can't get it done.

Heath Bell is fat. Or was that Ring? I forget. whoever they are, they need to talk to their tailor. And i noticed this on a night that David wells started. Time to start roller blading to the park,pal and take Wells with you.

As for how the Mets will fare againsts Pad's ace tomorrow night, I don't need Greg Maddux to piss on my leg and tell me its raining.

    Funny, I guess not sleeping for nearly 2 days made me think that today was an offday for the Mets. I guess I was right:)

    Hi cver. Glad you made it safely. I'm finally leaving and looking forward to 20 hrs in the air and 5 in the airports.

    welcome to CalifoNeeYA. Some facts to make your stay more interesting:

    we drive on the right side of the road. unless we're talking on our cells then all bets are off. we're always talking on our cells.

    our governor is an action star. we elected him instead of a porn star or a comedian whose act involved watermelons.

    sorry Jaap. I'm the Moises Alou of bloggers for another week. I am tied down here in Hong Kong with sporadic internet service.

    my attempts to find a guest blogger were half-hearted and futile. But when I return in about 9 days...mets nation tremble in your shoes!!!

    Did I not volunteer to be a guest blogger? That's it, I'm done reading this piece of junk....

    Oh I can't resist. I can't quite you IMFM.

    damnit 81, i was looking for a guest and thought i asked you...well, you'll get your shot at the big time some day, but I'm coming back to the US in two days to my couch and expensive cable baseball package. I vowed not to return to the states til Shaun Green produced and today he jacked one.

    So funtime is over people, its time for some of the hard-hitting commentary I'm loved round the world for.

    I thought I e-mailed you when you first floated the idea last month, but maybe your account that I was spam, or thought I was going to have a blog breakdown and start screaming at people like I normally do on metsblog.
