>Policing The Church

>Today’s trendy story seems to be giving the Mets a hard time about how they handled Ryan Church. We covered this Sunday and Monday…but it’s nice to have backup…..and the Mets still won’t admit they were irresponsible.

Newsday:

Asked if he would handle Church’s injury differently, if he had a chance to start over, Minaya said, “Not based upon what our doctors told us. We listened to our experts’ advice and what they said. I have full confidence in our doctors.”

LoHud (who have been on the case):

Just dumb and arrogant from top to bottom. They should be ashamed, but I doubt they have that capability.

>Webb of Denial in Flushing

>I don't know what kind of scouting reports the Mets get, but the one I get shows they will be facing somone named Webb who has 11 wins. That does not bode well for a team that has lost 5 in a row.

Clearly they need to make a move if for no other reason to shake things up. All yelling at Willie accomplished was to run another two weeks off the clock. This team is going nowhere. Why wait for the inevitable.

Meaningful games in September? I don't think there will be meaningful games in August. I'm flashing ahead to a sports section filled with Giants and Olympics, and one of those sidebar columns with the result and bare bones facts about the Mets game. We saw lots of those in the early 90s.

You can go ahead and order the dry ice for September 28th which will be the final game at Shea. None will follow. (Thought for another day – how empty will that ceremony feel after the Yankees version a week before. I remind you this is an organization that had a marching band on opening day.)

Lee Mazzilli is over at SNY if the Wilpons are looking for him. He watches the team every night. Lee can be in the dugout by 6:30 if you need him, and you do.

Policing The Church

Today’s trendy story seems to be giving the Mets a hard time about how they handled Ryan Church. We covered this Sunday and Monday…but it’s nice to have backup…..and the Mets still won’t admit they were irresponsible.

I don't know what kind of scouting reports the Mets get, but the one I get shows they will be facing somone named Webb who has 11 wins. That does not bode well for a team that has lost 5 in a row.

>Tim Donaghy's Allegations

>Wow. I’m sure you’ve sat with your friends and said things like “they don’t call fouls on Player” or “they want the Team to win.” But when an NBA ref is saying things like they were told to lay off calling fouls on a player so as to not hurt TV ratings…..oh no.

How awful for the NBA to have this come out now durink a Lakers-Celtics final.

What’s scary is where there’s smoke there is usually fire – so maybe Donaghy is exaggerating or desparate, I don’t know what he knows or what his motivation would be, but it won’t surprise me if there’s some truth to this story.
