Lets face it, last nights game against the Marlins was unwatchable.
So here is footage from Terry Collins post game press conference that I had video taped from last Thursdays win against the Marlins. Terry talks about the injuries to Josh Thole and Ruben Tejada, as well as his opinion if Miguel Bautista will pitch in this Thursdays doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves.
Watch for the f-bomb towards the end of the video – it’s hilarious ! Oh and I am sorry about the shakiness of the footage – I’m still trying to get a hand of this thingamajig !
And with that said…. HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!
Mets alumni celebrating a birthday today includes:
Mets Sports Channel, MSG & WPIX play by play broadcaster, Fran Healy is 65 (1946). I was never a fan of Healy’s broadcasting skills. I never liked announcers that were “homers”, and Healy was the epitome of a homer announcer.
Reserve outfielder from the ’01 season, Alex Escobar is 33 (1978). While Escobar was playing in the Mets farm system, he was hyped by the front office as a “5 tool ” player. Well I guess most of his tools were defective because he would be traded after the ’01 season to the Cleveland Indians for future Hall of Famer, Roberto Alomar and middle reliever, Mike Bacsik
The New York Mets purchased the contract of middle reliever, Larry Foss from the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 6, 1962. Foss would only appear in 5 games with the Mets, and went 0-1 with an E.R.A of 4.63.
The New York Mets signed free agent infielder, Keith Miller on September 6, 1984. In 1991, Keith would be part of the deal which sent him to the Kansas City Royals for one time Cy Young award winner, Brett Saberhagen.
Mo Vaughn was in Miami last night to watch the Mets/Marlins game. No wonder why we were destroyed by a last place team !!!
