Good article about the Mets’ plan to destroy baseball with 4 inning starts

Newsday breaks down the plan to avoid the pitchers facing hitters the third time the order. It actually sounds half-way thought out but the Mets and MLB are missing the issue…

This will completely destroy the sport of baseball.

I don’t care if the Mets win 125 games doing this. It makes for an unwatchable sport. It would be like an NBA team realizing they could win if they start sending the opponents to the foul line in the early 3rd quarter. Or an NFL team realize that once they are up 14 their best move is to take three knees and punt because it takes 4 minutes off the clock each time. Yeah it might work but who wants to watch it?

Nobody wants to see the 5th inning guy.

Nobody wants to see the 6th inning guy

Nobody wants to see the 7th inning guy.

Nobody wants to see the 8th inning guy.

I know I am from another time but why didn’t pitchers as far back as say ten years ago have this issue?

No thanks on this product. You will all call me old man like you always do and then eventually come around…just like you have on replay sucking.

Mets Police Morning Laziness: Call of Duty

SLACKISH REACTION: Great day yesterday as I did my Chill & Netflix (see yesterday’s Morning Laziness). I wound up buying Call of Duty. As predicted it needed 5 frigging hours of updates, so I wound up playing Gran Turismo 6 on the PS3 (I have advanced HDMI switcher technology) then some Atari Flashback (Dodge ‘Em, I still got skills) then back to the PS4 for FIFA and I have rekindled my love for NBA2K17 and my San Diego Sharks franchise. Also went to the PS4 store and saw Destiny 2 was $39 so I grabbed that and figured it will probably download between now and Valentine’s Day.

Five hours later the game was installed and I checked out the campaign mode which looks way cool. Then I wanted to try multiplayer and go destroyed in Deathmatch. THEN I found what I was really looking for which is the WAR mode which is more like the multiplayer I am used to from Battlefield. Played a little, but then it was 9pm and I switched into “TV” Mode.

None of that has anything to do with the Mets but…

This will completely destroy the sport of baseball.

I’ll have a longer post on that later this morning.

Is Keith Hernandez the best Mets player of the 80’s? Yeah probably.

Is Keith Hernandez the best Mets player of the 1980s? Maybe.

Is Keith Hernandez the best Mets player of the 1980s?  Maybe.

 

Imagine Matt Harvey was caught in the clubhouse smoking a cigarette as the Mets were about to lose the World Series?   (I’m reminded it was actually drinking beer in the manager’s office.)  Hell would break loose.  Keith does it, and it’s cool.

Imagine Matt Harvey went on a popular sitcom playing a version of himself who thinks he is some sort of ladies man?   Hell would break loose.  Keith does it, and it’s cool.

“Massive” amounts of cocaine?  Nobody cares.

Keith has IT.  You can’t teach IT.

Keith could steal your girlfriend and you’d be like – well he’s Keith Hernandez, I guess it’s OK.

The guy didn’t want to be here, and walked out as The Captain.

Us 80’s kids learned that there was a whole other way of playing first base that was something other than sticking the slow fat kid over there to catch routine baseballs.

I’m not going to pull up the stats and tell you that he was 5th in this and 3rd in that.  Doesn’t matter.

If you watched the Mets in the 80s you know what this guy did for the team.  And that’s why he can steal your girlfriend.

The stats might not show it, but is Keith Hernandez the best Mets player of the 1980s?  Maybe.

Still in doubt?  You can pick one number to retire – 16, 17 or 18.  17 wins.

Mets Police Morning Laziness: Purke It Up

SLACKISH RECATION:  Nice morning where I got to sleep in for once.  Next weekend some sadist scheduled a soccer tournament on what should be Chill and Netflix Weekend.

So I know you kids like to Netflix and Chill but us old guys…I want to actually Chill and watch some Netflix.  Mrs. Mets Police isn’t going to do the Netflix and Chill part until someone cleans the garage.  You married guys know whats up.   I’m old, if someone lets me watch TV and doesn’t make me clean the garage I don’t need to N&C.   I have a PS4 and some FIFA to play.  Anyway we’ve taken a weird diversion here….

The Mets signed Matt Purke!  I wrote all about him here.  My sources tell me that because of the competitive unfairness this will cause that the Nationals have asked to be moved to the American League.

The Syracuse Chiefs people approved the sale to Los Wilpons.

Is Ron Darling the best Mets pitcher of the 1980s?  Maybe.

I guess the Mets aren’t changing the uniforms?   Good.

Buying Opening Day tickets wasn’t torture this year.  I plan on actually attending a game in 2018!

Mickey Callaway seems to think the Mets have the players to win.  Yeah?  Did something change from last September Mick?
