Pussy baseball

Posted by keithosaunders on October 9, 2015

Why can’t the Mets do anything right?  Here they are in the playoffs for the first time in 9 years and what should be a joyous occasion has turned into a comedy of errors spurred on by greedy agents and a modern day, me-first style player.

Why isn’t Matt Harvey starting game one?  Is he your ace or not?  By the time they get to him in game three, after facing Dodgers aces Kershaw and Greinke in Chavez Ravine, the Mets may well be in a 2-0 hole.  How sharp can you expect Harvey to be after what will have been nearly a two week layoff?  I question Harvey’s heart and I question the Mets brain trust. Furthermore, because Harvey is not starting one of the games at Dodger Stadium the Mets will have Syndergaard pitching on the road where he’s been terrible. (He’s dominant at Citi Field.)

What are they saving Harvey for?  So that they can pay him 20 million dollars a year three years from now when they’ll no longer be a contender.  Then watch him blow his rotator cuff and you’re stuck with a Pedro Martinez/Johan Santana situation.

Nice job.

  1. Look at the front office for your answer concerning the New York Mets.

  2. I agree the Matt Harvey issue(s) have effectively negated all the good feelings their playoff appearance should be generating. Indeed they face the prospect of a 2-0 hole if this all plays out as thought…but baseball as you know is a funny sport sometimes. Pitchers who have great regular seasons sometimes choke/cough it up in the post-season. Keep the faith and try to enjoy the ride. It is good to see the Mets in the hunt for October and I wish them well.

    • I agree sports attitude. The Mets steal a game in LA (hell, what’s stopping them from winning 1-0?) and go back to NY with their ace facing the putrid back end of the Dodgers rotation — it’s a different story. I’ll gladly eat crow!

  3. If the Mets do overcome the Dodgers in their wildcard series , then I believe many will start to take the team seriously.
