Night Opener Grrrrrr – Hey Mets Please Reconsider!

Now I’m just mad at everyone.  I’m mad at the Padres.  I’m mad at the Mets.  I’m mad at the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  I’m mad at the schedule maker.
Why the hell do they have top open against the Padres?
The reason for the horrible night opener as explained by ESPN.com

NEW YORK — The New York Mets‘ Citi Field opener will be Monday, April 13, a day earlier than originally planned, and the new ballpark will open with a night game.

At the request of the Mets, San Diego and Major League Baseball agreed to move up the first game to allow Tuesday to be an off-day in the middle of the three-game series. New York wanted to have the Tuesday open in case the opener is postponed by bad weather.

San Diego hosts San Francisco on April 12 and will fly from the West Coast to the East Coast with no day off. Under its labor contract, MLB is allowed seven West-to-East trips without a day off in each league per season, as long as there is no more than one per club.

But because the Padres won’t have an off-day, the April 13 opener cannot start earlier than 7 p.m., according to the collective bargaining agreement.

Come on Mets.  Play this one on Tuesday afternoon.   Don’t blame the weather, you’ll make us sit there all night on Monday to collect the parking fees and $10 beers, who ya kidding.   Move the game to a day game!

Opening Night???

OK Mets Police fans, who can tell me what’s wrong here:
The Mets first home game will be played at 7:10pm on Monday April 13th.
 Let me know if you can figure out why I’m throwing things around Mets Police HQ.

There’s Nobody To Be Mad At

2007 was easy.  Willie sucked.   OverReyes went superstar on us and sucked.
This year I can’t even get mad.  Guys arms are falling off.  There’s nobody to pitch.
There’s no “Doug Sisk” on which to focus my wrath.
They will lose tonight, and my reaction will be “of course they lost, look who they started.”
I can’t even yell at Omar for not putting together a good team – any reasonable person would think one of these 15 guys in the bullpen could get someone out.
I still think they will make it, winning the east.   Jerry has impressed me.

>So Who Should Be The Field Of Dreams Team At Yankee Stadium?

>When stadiums close there is an often a ceremony where the greatest living (and retired) players take their positions one last time.

Who do you think should take the field at the Yankee game on Sunday?

One man’s list:

C: Yogi
1B: Donnie Baseball has a game so call Tino. Sorry Pepitone.
2B: Please welcome back our old friend Willie Randolph
SS: Too bad Scooter didn’t make it. Bucky Dent.
3B: Nettles
LF: They ain’t gonna invite Winfield so it’s um……..
CF: Well unless Joe D or Mantke have a surprise..it’s Bernie
RF: Paulie O should be in the Hall but it will be Reggie
P: Whitey Ford. Check the nickname. Plus we can’t have everyone out there from 1977.

Feel encouraged to complain about this list and remind me of 98 year old guys I forgot.

>So Who Should Be The Field Of Dreams Team At Shea?

>When Stadium close they usually break out the greatest living retired players and have them stand in their old positions.

Who should be there at Shea?

C – Carter even though they will go with that guy from the Dodgers.
1B – If you don’t know the answer please visit another site
2B – um…..um….Alfonzo?
SS – Buddy I guess. It would be nice to see Buddy back.
3B – It would be nice to see Ray Knight even though he had a short stay. Hojo not awful.
LF – Please welcome back our old friend um……
CF – Lee Mazzilli! (Mookie?)
RF – Straw
P – The Former Franchise From The Winery
