Gil Must Go: Somehow Seaver is 11-5.

Well, I was wrong, the Mets didn’t score a million runs for Terrific like usual – and Tommy Boy got it done.  How does this guy have 11 wins?  Well, he does.

I still don’t know what the hell Gil is doing.  He has Gliding Ed Charles in there batting .176, and this guy Clendenon?  Why did we acquire him? .236 does not impress me.

That this team is 37-28 is a miracle.

Didn’t get to: Mets might play Rosario in CF. Sheesh.

Things got so crazy with Mickeygate I couldn’t even get to this one.

….

You know who says hi?  Center Fielder Howard Johnson.  Juan Samuel also says hello. So does Keith Miller.

The Mets, always being a joke, are considering playing Rosario in CF.  Don’t.

Also wasn’t this guy a sure thing prospect?  Haven’t seen it yet, but he is young.  very young.  23.  Leave him be,  He’s not the problem.

 

Mets announce MetsHeritage.com: a completely free digital archive of historical material

Thanks to @mediagoon for telling me to check my email.  The Mets, as always, used their spy cam to see when I am at my busiest and announce something.  I haven’t digested it, will comment later.  Seems way cool and the sort of thing we have been preaching here at MPHQ for over a decade.  Will comment tonight.

Mets Police Morning Laziness: in which we learn Wags is making in game decisions!

SLACKISH REACTION: That baseball game was ridiculous last night. The park made Fake New Yankee Stadium look like Yellowstone.  I bailed at 10pm because of the 10pm rule – I like sleep.  Baseball gets three hours and that’s it.  I realize the Mets have become the NBA.  The games don’t matter, it’s all the other stuff.  And there was a lot of other stuff…

Mickey didn’t apologize which was weird, but then came back to say he apologized.   Recap here.

This morning we are learning that “the front office” (that’s code for Wags) is making IN GAME MOVES.   The move in question involved JDG which is interesting in that JDG is repped by CAA and his former agent is the GM.  (see The Long Con.)

Puma adds that the clubhouse was displeased with Van Wagenen failing to take responsibility for the move, as it fueled public belief that deGrom has a beef with Callaway. (via CBS Sports)

So we should have another day of circus now.  Yay!

Wags’ Mets are 5 games under .500.  Never mind Cano, never mind Mickey – there are 3.5 years left on Wags’ contract.

All this overshadowed that the Mets will change the address of Citi Field to 41 Seaver Way as 126th Street gets a new name.  We knew all this but now it’s official.

Happy Lockett Day!  Meanwhile, Thor will start for Brooklyn in Aberdeen.

Thunder Pete Alonso was the NL Player of the Week.

The Mets have a nice sale on tickets.
