More Mlicki, Less Castillo

Just a reminder to the Mets: Increasingly, we fans say we don’t particularly care about the Subway Series, that the novelty wore off long ago, that six games a year is too many, that Interleague’s an unnecessary disruption to baseball’s beautifully synchronized rhythms and that the whole thing is played out. These statements may accurately reflect how we view the world philosophically, but from a visceral standpoint…not so much. Hence, when you’re playing these three games this weekend, do your best to win them.

I know you do your best to win all your games. But you know what I mean. Really do your best. Really.

Thanks.

    Not a Mlicki in sight.

    Ugh, this is too much. I HATE inter-league play. Please let them come back tomorrow and make this series respectable, don’t piss away all the good vibes we’ve had in 2012 so far.

    This wasn’t so much Castillo as the Mets in general everytime Santana pitches in the New Yankee Launching Pad. Not pretty.

  • Bud Seligs one world vision for OUR game is as disgusting as the ‘ frendly confines ‘ of the latest version of Yankee Stadium..
    Greg, you and I have mentioned our doomsday Baseball choice ( Pirates ) if the Mets fell off the face of the earth..I must tell you my friend- I no longer believe that. If the Mets did not excist I would no longer be a Baseball fan- there I said it!! With a heavy heart and perhaps too many memories of pre 1997 Baseball I just cant stand it anymore..
    What really motivates the Assholes that run the show? Its not the games illustrious past, its not making the game more affordable..Are they just catering to creatures of habit?

    OK bring on the Robot Umpires in a game between the Mets and the first ever Russian team played in Moscow!

    Thats it!
