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)

The Return of the MetFan (In)sanity Scale

It's time, yes it is. Please report to the right side bar, and note that the scale ascends in degree as it goes down. You'll recognize "going down" as similar to the direction the Mets are headed.

Since the Mets decided to recycle their collapse from 2007, I have decided to follow suit and recycle pictures, features and content too. Phuck this.

Familiarize yourself with these images. These are the guys that are gonna keep us from the playoffs!?

U KNow Who!!




As your dreams are dashed by LMilz and the Bitter Gnats, remember, "Omar traded the Village for a couple of random townspeople."




The axis of evil takes one last gasp.

Some upkeep. I've added a link to John Delcos' new enterprise, despite the fact that he, like all newspaper-backed blogs and one Dodgers site that will go unnamed, refuses to acknowledge me. You may also notice I've added links to all recent Top 10 lists in the right side bar. This way you can still amuse yourself without drudging through my progressively purple prose and sour attitude posturing. This one in particular, seems appropriate as the Mets marketing machine swings into action while the team forgets how to swing altogether:

Top Ten Potential Mets 2008 Slogans

10. "New York Mets: Best Team on Paper"
9. "Hey, We Fired the Groundskeeper"
8. "We Got Us Some Pitching"
7. "Come to Shea Where Kaz Matsui Got His Start"
6. "The Mets: Our Position Players are Drug-Free"
5. "Come Dance with the Real Stars!"
4. "Wait til you see NEXT season's ticket prices!"
3. "Meaningful Games are Back!"
2. "No Way That'll Happen Again"
1. "F*@?! Hanley Ramirez too!"

    Cver - talk about torture - I have to carpool to work this morning with a Phillies fan, who is a psychologist, and who will tactfully and kindly avoid the subject of baseball this morning, while I imagine him silently lording it over me and the Mets.

    I CAN'T TAKE IT!!

    If you read in the paper about a respectable middle aged lady in Toronto inexplicably murdering her mild mannered carpool partner, you'll understand what happened.

    Katherine, you're in Toronto?! Wow - cool! Yeah, well we'll see what this 08 team is made of. The only just thing is that all the talk goes out the window when teams hit the field. There are obviously corrupt elements off the field that dirty up what I would like to see stay pure on the field, but luckily most of this hasn't happened here. The only thing I am still a bit steamed about was the evil comment by Br*ve Kelly Johnson, who wants to see us collapse. Of course, if you lose to the Phils, you help. And of course, if the Mets just win, they will have nothing to worry about. Nobody can stop them, if they so choose and have the ability and sanity.

    Toronto!! Does anyone in America actually read this blog? No wonder you're all so calm. Until President Palin orders preemptive strikes on Canada to territorially reunite Alaska with the homeland but really for oil (when she figures out what preemption is), that is.

    Now maybe we can get Cver to drop some hints as to his location! I might need to come stay on all your international couches after this Sept. and Nov. as I am hunted by Johnny Law here in the US for unspeakable acts against Citifield.

    No dice, IMFM. The conservative government up here delights in sending conscientiously-objecting, Iraq-fleeing GI's back to the US for imprisonment.

    Anyway, I am American, you know. The only reason I seem calm about things is I am trying to cheer you up, because you seem so desperately pessimistic about everything.
