Omar Gets His Money, Now Where’s Mine?

Day 5 and my credit card has not yet been credited for the $500 in services that the Mets sold me and billed me, but failed to deliver.  You know these as a unicorn called “playoff tickets.”
 
Meanwhile, there are two men responsible for the missing of the playoffs.  One was removed of his duties in Anaheim.  The other just got an inexplicable contract extension.
 
Hey Mets, can I have my money back?

>PSL Rally Against Evil $ Grubbing Giants Continues the Good Fight

>Steve Kern at PSL Rally checked in with some good news about his fight against the Evil Money Grubbing Giants From New Jersey:

CNN has completed a story on Personal Seat Licenses, which airs as follows:

Saturday, 10/4 at 1pm on CNN on a show called “Your $$$”.

They interviewed me and other fans regarding the Personal Seat License issue with the Giants and Jets.

It will be aired at other times throughout the week, but this is the only confirmed showing that I know of.

I just wanted you to know that the cause has not been forgotten.

I hope all is well in your world.

>Kay & Leiter Spreading Urban Legend About Al Leiter Being Booed

>There’s an urban legend spreading that Al Leiter was booed at the closing ceremony of Shea Stadium.

I’m not going to claim that not one person booed, but I heard Leiter and Kay are making it sound like Leiter was booed out of the ballpark, ostensibly because he is a Yankee.  Well, I was there and it didn’t happen.  

I don’t know what Leiter’s motivation is – maybe the two guys closest to him booed him so it sounded loud – but it didn’t happen.

Yogi Berra is kinda a Yankee, he didn’t get booed.

Despite what he says, Kay is not objective.  You listen to his radio show for five minutes and it’s clear that the Mets could run off 20 straight championships and he’d still rag on them.   He’s one of those Yankee fans.  You know the type.

It didn’t happen Al.  Cute anecdote, but it didn’t happen.

>Bizarroworld NLDS Game 1

>Joe Torre won his record 77th postseason game last night in an alternate universe where the NL East champion Mets won just 5 of their 30 regular season blown saves.

Mike Pelfrey pitched 8 strong innings, holding the Dodgers to just two runs over 118 pitches. With the score tied at 2, interim manager Jerry Manuel went to his bullpen which promptly loaded the bases before giving up a grand slam to Jeff Kent.

The Mets stranded 11 runners on base.

After the game Fred Wilpon expressed mixed emotions, "Any time the Dodgers can win a game this close to Brooklyn, well, let's just say it's not the worst thing. I wish Torre had been available last winter following that awful collapse we had. He seems like a New York kind of guy that could handle you guys (the media and fat bloggers)."

Dodgers 6, Mets 2.

Tonight, Johan Santana pitches on three days rest.

News and notes: Moises Alou and Angel Pagan sat behind the Mets dugout. A seat was left for Orlando Hernandez who never arrived. The Mets are expected to extend the contracts of Omar Minaya (three years) and second baseman Jose Castillo (eight years) in a press conference this morning.
