I am actually interested to see what this lineup can do against Livan. Really. I’m serious.
9/8/2010-11:43am at 11:43 am (UTC -4)
Why the hell is Luis Hermandez starting again????
9/8/2010-12:43pm at 12:43 pm (UTC -4)
flavor of the week for jerry’s gut? The guy they want a look at, since this is pre-ST?
Or the ever popular, Jerry is an idiot.

I don’t critique the lineup anymore. the season is over, Jerry Manuel’s magic number for a losing Mets tenure is 7, and he’s a moron.

Thats what we like…..Direct and to the point!

Since this thread has evolved (or devolved) into a critique on the manager I think this is the place to note the following:
Anyone catch the Brewers-Cardinals game last night?
For background it should be noted that very early this season after repeated blown saves Brewers manager Ken Macha replaced Trevor Hoffman with rookie John Axford who has been quite successful.
Last night home plate umpire Balkin’ Bob Davidson ejected Ken Macha, along with Dave Duncan, a Brewers player AND a Brewer’s fan from the game.
So late in the game the Brewers had a 4-2 lead and temporary manager Willie Randolph brought Axford in to pitch the 8th inning, then Hoffman in to pitch the 9th and garner the 600th save of his career.

Willie is positioning himself to be manager again and it could happen soon.
9/8/2010-1:34pm at 1:34 pm (UTC -4)
Don’t look now but Dickey is pitching a 1-hitter.
9/8/2010-1:37pm at 1:37 pm (UTC -4)
Damn, you made me look.

Anyone catch Rubin’s Q&A with Wright?
You’re close with Howard Johnson. Do you recognize things have run its course with the on-field staff and accept there are going to be changes, no matter how popular someone is?
“I owe a lot of what I’ve been able to do here to HoJo for the work he’s done with me in the minor leagues, the work he’s done with me in the big leagues. But I think HoJo is the first one to understand how the system works here — that when you sign up for those jobs, or when you play in New York, you’re under a microscope. I think he’ll be the first one to understand that. No matter what, I’ll always be indebted to HoJo.”
Wright knows what’s up. The hitting coach will always be looked upon at the failings of the team’s offense. It is the nature of the job. The fact that he has been able to maintain his title this long this season is what amazes me. Considering how poorly the team has played offensively overall.
Don’t know if it is due out of respect and admiration for Hojo being an 86 Mets or the Mets stupidity? I am leaning toward the latter though.

All of the above thus resulting in disaster and another case of lack of accountability.
9/8/2010-1:49pm at 1:49 pm (UTC -4)
I’m glad to see you say that.
9/8/2010-1:52pm at 1:52 pm (UTC -4)
Been saying it bud. We just usually differ on where that accountability lies.
9/8/2010-1:53pm at 1:53 pm (UTC -4)
Never the less it’s good to see you say that.
This is the only redeemable part of the interview. Wright pretty much admitting he knows HoJo is likely gone.
The rest of the interview is why I unfollowed Adam Rubin. It’s poor drivel. He’s basically baiting Wright to say some sort of “It sucks here, losing sucks, we’re going nowhere, I suck because the team sucks, I’d be better off elsewhere, I’d play better elsewhere” He basically asks the same thing over and over again. Luckily Wright’s too smart for him.

Yes I have to agree with you on this article Ceetar.
Kudos to Wright for traversing the minefield Rubin tried to lay flawlessly.
True but I did think it was telling, considering the timing, that Wright chose to unofficially call out some of his teammates for not wanting to be here. That coinciding with the reports of Mets not wanting to be here.

Lol. Cerrone retweeted my “I unfollowed another beat writer” tweet. I’m not sure it was really worth retweeting.
9/8/2010-2:01pm at 2:01 pm (UTC -4)
Tied game 2-2
9/8/2010-2:22pm at 2:22 pm (UTC -4)
Livan is out of the game. Dickey still in game. Dickey wins right?
9/8/2010-2:24pm at 2:24 pm (UTC -4)
Bummer Dickey was pinch hit for already.
9/8/2010-2:27pm at 2:27 pm (UTC -4)
Yeah, Adam Dunn’s defense is a non-factor. LOL.
9/8/2010-3:19pm at 3:19 pm (UTC -4)
Yipppppie. Mets win first road rubber of the year!!! Watch out!
9/8/2010-3:20pm at 3:20 pm (UTC -4)
Dickey takes first road rubber?
9/8/2010-3:27pm at 3:27 pm (UTC -4)
well, it is only appropirate that dickey won the rubber.
9/8/2010-3:54pm at 3:54 pm (UTC -4)
Oh, good one – LOL.
