It was a slow painful disease that made life hell for all around them.

that actually looks comfy, i would sleep in that for sure =) BTW I called this game over after the first inning. Also its going to be very tough for wright to get 100rbi this season when no one is on base.
7/17/2009-11:01pm at 11:01 pm (UTC -4)
Agreed, so give it a try Smooth.
7/17/2009-11:14pm at 11:14 pm (UTC -4)
so are we going open casket or closed? and do we dress the Mets in the snow white jerseys, white pinstripes, or the black ones?
7/17/2009-11:16pm at 11:16 pm (UTC -4)
I say we go in a hospital gown.
7/17/2009-11:17pm at 11:17 pm (UTC -4)
By the way, have not seen you before, welcome to the service.
7/17/2009-11:18pm at 11:18 pm (UTC -4)
Please tradition dictates we use Opening Day Uniforms.
The word out from the mets is that sheffield just had a leg cramp? Which probabley means in mets terms that he needs an amputation (I know very bad taste )
trade pelf, f mart, murphy, and parnell for halladay! lol Idk Pelf is a joke…he just doesnt have what it takes im afraid….he may be as whacked out in the mind as Ollie. only hides it better. Up down , up down….I hope he gets a permanent case of the yips and ends up in an insane loony bin! the yips and he admits hes nuts lol
7/17/2009-11:19pm at 11:19 pm (UTC -4)
Settle down a little Joe with Pelfrey, I am sure he will be fine. Now Pelfrey, Murphy and Parnell for Halladay, I think would still do it.
7/17/2009-11:20pm at 11:20 pm (UTC -4)
Especially if we could net Overbay or Rios and their our old SS out of the deal somehow.
7/17/2009-11:23pm at 11:23 pm (UTC -4)
Settle down? you think he will be fine? im sorry but I dont know where you have been? Last week Pelf’s college coach was interviwed and believes he has gotten worse and digressed. Minus one good half of pitching last year, this has been his MO. Hes 25 now and pitched in college…
7/17/2009-11:25pm at 11:25 pm (UTC -4)
Yeah, I think he will still be fine. Nothing more than a 2/3 but that’s ok.
7/17/2009-11:27pm at 11:27 pm (UTC -4)
Yes if he was our 4 than fine but hes our 2. since our number 2 Ollie is really a number 4 or 5.
7/17/2009-11:30pm at 11:30 pm (UTC -4)
You can’t hold that against HIM though. He is a #3 for most decent teams right now, well not right now but you know what I mean. Omar should have gotten a #2 but you have to admit there was not one out there this offseason unless you wanted him to vastly overpay for Burnett or Lowe. Those are 2 that I am glad we did not get.
7/17/2009-11:37pm at 11:37 pm (UTC -4)
agreed but the bottom line is he stinks like very bad this year. What is most concerning is he shows glimpses,like against Brewers, and than collapses. Not good…very similar to Ollie
7/18/2009-12:47am at 12:47 am (UTC -4)
If you had the choice of overpaying for a player and winning a world championship or signing someone much cheaper but falling short of the playoffs what would be your choice? In fact I wonder what most fans would select.
7/17/2009-11:28pm at 11:28 pm (UTC -4)
His entire season last year was not bad. His first half he had a 3.64 ERA and his second half he had a 3.82 ERA, nothing really to say half a season.
7/17/2009-11:33pm at 11:33 pm (UTC -4)
He was inconsistent and that great the first half. The 2nd half is what the organization based their decision when declaring him our number 2. Im sorry one half of baseball for a young pitcher doesnt justify…But its status quo murph got a hit in spring training and became our star .350 hitter
7/18/2009-12:57am at 12:57 am (UTC -4)
Pelfry threw approximately 80% fastballs. His secondary pitches remain a problem. He lacks a strike-out pitch and when the sinker isnâ€™t working he has nothing to compensate with. The hitters have adjusted to him. When the movement and velocity are there he can be very effective but when they are not he has nothing to turn to. Basically I blame the Mets organization for not allowing Pelfrey to develop the secondary pitches in the minors.
7/17/2009-11:21pm at 11:21 pm (UTC -4)
I didnt want Pedro back at all. Happy we didnt sign him but can he do any worse than the scrubs we have throwing….
7/17/2009-11:22pm at 11:22 pm (UTC -4)
Well, to be fair I still would not want him over Perez, Johan or Pelfrey, maybe not Nieve either.
i agree just saying.

I must say, down here in the land of the hot and humid, I sit here and have to listen to Mike and Mike (as they do be national, after all) to get any mention of NY teams. XM ain’t jumping into the budget, when Brooklyn Lager is technically an import down here… My other option is to listen to ‘Stros radio. I listen to them talk up their team, with ridiculous optimism. “oh, we can still take the central…”. “wild card here we come…”. When I do travel down that listening ally, I listen with 2 distinct thought processes.
1. thank God we aren’t the Astros. Their owner ruined their farm system trading for players, consistently thinking they are in it and over paying for older talent to put together an experienced team that would win now… oh wait…
2. I wish we were the Astros at this point. They have a better record than the Mets and have overpaid, over the hill players or just plan old crappy players and they are playing better than said Mets. Yeah, Berkman is good, Lee can hit (can’t field), Pence is decent and Tejada sat on a syringe again… they have nothing else. nothing. yet, they still win, beat the Dodgers, etc. etc. etc. They have Luck. I don’t believe in Luck. Yet Luck laughs at me as it bludgeons me about the ears and neck region.
Yeah, I understand the whole injury thing, but it still rubs me like salt on a paper cut. I dislike Houston for being Africa-esque hot, having Amazon like Humidity, and no mass transit (combined with bad drivers), but watching the Astros do better than the Mets… If I see Mike Scott passing me on the right, I may just be provoked into violent road rage.

Well 1st welcome to TRDMB if you have internet access you can listen to NY Sports talk Home of the Mets http://www.wfan.com/
7/17/2009-11:59pm at 11:59 pm (UTC -4)
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
Check that, it was just the worst of times.
Rest in peace 2009 Mets.
7/18/2009-12:44am at 12:44 am (UTC -4)
Well, they can only go up from here. I hope this is as low as they can go. But yeah, RIP 2009 Mets.
7/18/2009-1:03am at 1:03 am (UTC -4)
[Holding the skull of a large head] Alas poor Mr. Met. I knew him well.
7/18/2009-2:39am at 2:39 am (UTC -4)
Well, as someone else said, atleast I wont have a stress filled summer. No need to scoreboard watch, whine about a blown game, or lose sleep for cuz some team is creeping up in the standings. Instead, I will watch Mets games like I did in the mid 90′s.
Oh yea, football cant come fast enough. Go, Big Blue.
7/18/2009-8:08am at 8:08 am (UTC -4)
Well, I guess we don’t have to worry about another September collapse.
I’m moving back to the NY area in September and was looking forward to taking in a few games at Citi Field. I guess now I’ll save some money on tickets.
7/18/2009-8:15am at 8:15 am (UTC -4)
