Calm The Eff Down

As you get to know The Mets Police you’ll find that nobody likes giving them a hard time more than we do.

That being said: CALM DOWN

On Sunday morning there was going to be a tickertape parade.

They ran into two good pitchers and the bats cooled.

The NY Sun is writing this:

What Does $135 Million Purchase for the Mets?


As the
Mets were playing the Chicago Cubs yesterday afternoon, several Flushing partisans sent me e-mails asking, basically, the same question: This is what $135 million buys? One regular correspondent, notable for his generally even keel, simply slugged his subject line “Minaya” and pasted the starting lineup into the body of his e-mail. At times, simple observation counts as an expression of disbelief.

Relax! Santana tonight against the Nats. The Mets are 1.5 games behind the Marlins. Although Willie might want to have infield practice this afternoon.

Looks like they are getting fesity down in Philly. I guess when you’re team actually shows up for “meaningful games” in September you get confident. Which reminds me, why did Free Pass Willie get to return?

>Dr. K Strikes Out Too Many People

Thinking back to 1984 reminded me of one of the all-time stupid things the Mets did.
I can’t quite remember the year and I’ll take some help – but at one point the Mets decided to discourage Gooden from striking out so many people.

The idea was that there was something wrong with having won 60 games by 21 year old, and that he could elongate his career by putting the ball in play more.
Why keep on winning Cy Young Awards when we can worry about 44 year old Dwight Gooden in the 21st Century? Stupid.

>Cubsbusters!

> Being just a little too young for 1969, my favorite season of them all was 1984. 1984? Not 86? Yes 1984.

All I knew of the Mets was a team that would finish 5th or 6th (always fighting the Cubs for sole possession of last). Our “MVP” Lee Mazzilli hit a massive .273 with 16HRs. He even walked in the All Star Game! One time Topps let Craig Swan share a baseball card with Ron Guidry!

Along comes 1984 and this young pitcher (left) looks amazing, and the guy they got for Mazzilli is pretty good, and Strawberry will hit 500 HRs and I didn’t realize it last year but the guy from the Neil Allen trade is really good.

It’s May and we’re still in it. June. July? August??

I remember the Mets got hosed on “Midget Mets.” It was as a promotion where for like two bucks you got tickets to a game. So they pawned off Mets-Cubs because that would be the 1984 equivalent of a “value” game. There was a rain-out and Midget Mets day became a weekend doubleheader battle for first place with the entire upper deck filled with kids parked in underpriced seats. I bet the Mets would have liked the beer money for that day.

Unfortunately for the 1984 Mets the Cubs decided to be good that year, and the Mets finished six back.

Sweep those Cubbies boys!
