yeah yeah, Mets suck...It's after the All-Star Break, Mike Francesa should be used to it by now.
 
2012-08-24 09:32:26 AM
He sure did break out the Kotite comparison early.

I listen to the FAN every day and always sing that song.

Mike knows how to get Mets/Jets fans going. He trolls them almost every day.

Good, but nowhere near Dog's rant after the Giants lost to the Marlins in the NLDS in '03

Anyway, not only were the Mets swept by the Rockies at home, but they were swept by the Rockies at home despite 3 games where the starter went 6+ innings and gave up 1 run or less. Just maddening.

But here's the thing: As much of a good point Francesa has, I *am* excited about the young pitchers. The team has regressed to where I thought they'd be going into this year, and it's a lost season anyway. So why not look for potential future positives? Harvey and Wheeler are top prospects and could be in the rotation next year. McHugh isn't nearly as highly regarded and I don't expect yesterday to be anything resembling his norm, but maybe he ends up being solid.

And yes, we've been sold this before, and maybe it turns into nothing. But hopefully not.

They may be farkups, but at least these Mets aren't immensely overpaid farkups like Luis Castillo and Ollie Perez.

So what uniform number will David Wright be wearing when the Yanks sign him?
 
2012-08-24 10:20:11 AM
He's mostly right. They should take the field from a farking clown car these days.

I'm not sure there's any good times in the future either. They have the worst outfield I have ever seen and what kind of improvements will the outfield see next year? Duda? Jesus.

It's become cliche but the ownership sucks, I can't stand the Wilpons.

I love David Wright but if I were him I'd get the fark out as soon as humanly possible. Knowing the team's luck, he'll end up in the Bronx.

I love to follow the Mets. They are Shakespearean.

if David Wright becomes a Yankee, I might cry. Can we just give them Jason Bay instead?

That would be a crushing blow for the Mets fans.

Unfortunately (for Mets fans, anyway), the Wilpons have to hit bottom before they realize they have a problem - and they'll think everything's copacetic if they take two out of three from the Astros this weekend.

As a Bills fan, it felt nice to reminisce about Kotite. God I loved that man.

That's just a still picture of Francesa, since this is a recording of the radio show. No clue why they used that particular picture, though...

Izzy is one of three active players with 300+ saves.

True, but how many of those were with the Mets?

Also, Paul Wilson did have an "okay" (at best) run with the Reds in the early 2000s, but his velocity wasn't the same.

ha. that appears to the the Norfolk Tides stadium (damn sure isn't Shea) where my oft-told Bobby Valentine incident occurred; while the Norfolk Tides are now the, uh, whatever, INdians or Blue Jays affiliate, in the mid 90s they were the Mets' AAA team. and that's were Bobby V was staring at my wife.

I expected them to be this bad from the beginning. The only difference is I was surprised when they did well for the first half.

I really feel sorry for the few players having decent years ... which basically amounts to Wright and Dickey.

/I suppose Torres and Neise too.

meh, when this comes from a guy who's been a paid professional troll for decades and a yankees fan, it's hard to take it quite as seriously.

There's more reason to be excited as a Mets fan now than there was 2 years ago. That's a slight improvement.

What about trading Niese? I love him, but the Mets are strongest at starting pitcher, and he's young and locked up for a while. Could net a good return.

I'll admit I laughed, but its exactly why I *don't* like sports talk radio.  I used to have a few shows I'd listen to in Chicago with somewhat intellegent hosts.  But the ones that just came off as fans... meh... I can get this crap in any bar while watching the game.

Totally understandable. I listen to radio that covers teams I don't root for so it is pure entertainment.

As a Rockies fan I laughed but sadly if we could pitch we might have had a decent team this year. I will say this about our "minah leagahs", at least they play hard. There is some hope for the future.
