SLACKISH REACTION: I guess we’re all supposed to spend the day going “Oh wow Howie Rose put JDG on the Mount Rushmore of Mets Pitchers.” Well, yeah, the guy won back to back CYA and the other three would clearly be Seaver, Koosman and Gooden. I mean are you really putting who…Johan Santana…up there. Anyway that’s a one sentence Seinfeld Shrug topic, but given that nobody has anything I can see where that is getting turned into full articles and probably three hours of calls on Sports Talk Radio.
I also am not really interested in The Big Zero and The Alarm setting up a beer pong tournament.
There’s also whatever soul-searching Andy Martino did about his Mat Harvey coverage. I didn’t click on that. That somehow became a full episode of Guys At Home With Weird Camera Angles on SNY, which I of course didn’t watch.
Next, everyone will do “Today would have been Opening Day” articles which I am sure will be oh so compelling.
And that’s your Mets news for a Tuesday. I hope you and your family are safe and that someone gets the ear of The Leader and lets him know we need to keep doing this for several more weeks lest we take a major step backward. It seems like Governor Cuomo’s Son Governor Cuomo (who has been great during this after an initial misstep telling us to wait for the empty subway trains) and Governors Murphy (NJ) and Newsom (California) will ignore The Leader and keep their states closed…which is long-term smart.
