>Wagner Restarts The Willie Watch

Wagner went ape after the game…and he’s right….

Wagner looked over toward the area of first baseman Carlos Delgado’s locker and blurted: “Someone tell me why the (expletive) you’re talking to the closer. I didn’t even play. They’re over there, not being interviewed. … I got it. They’re gone. (Expletive) shocker.”
And nj.com adds

Wagner was asked if his comments were directed toward the team’s Latin players. Former catcher Paul Lo Duca expressed such a sentiment last year when he felt inundated by the media after games.
“I think it’s just certain guys,” Wagner said. “I don’t think it’s Latin, white or black. I don’t think it’s a color thing. I think some guys need to stand there and take the bad with the good.”

Except for Carlos Delgado, who bolted early, all of the team’s Latin players who participated in the game talked. Even a player who didn’t play, Moises Alou, spoke out regarding the Mets’ need to play better.

Might be time for the Willie Watch to restart – after all the team didn’t look to intense against those Nats.

>Mets To Play Last Place Team This Weekend

This Kazmir guy on The Rays seems to be good. Hopefully the Mets will develop a prospect like him some day and trade him away for a garbage pitcher.

19,976 in attendance. Lame.

Well the Mets get to throw both Santana and Rain against the last place New York Yankees on Friday night.

Yankee Panic hasn’t set in domestically yet…but it has overseas!

It’s that time of year again. Yankee haters everywhere are watching the scoreboard, assessing statistics, checking the standings and monitoring the local New York tabloids, all in a bid to answer one simple question: is this the year that the Yankees finally miss out on the post-season? Yes, I know it’s early; but for the dedicated band of Bomber bashers, it’s never too soon to speculate on whether or not this will be the first playoffs without Pinstripes since 1993.

It’s been an extraordinary run for New York, which includes four World Series titles, six American League pennants and 10 division titles, all under departed manager Joe Torre. If they can earn a play-off berth in 2008 with new skipper Joe Girardi leading the team, it will be for the 14th consecutive season, reminiscent of Atlanta’s unprecedented streak of 14 straight division titles. Can they do it? Certainly. Will they? Probably not, even with their hefty payroll of over $207m.

A good post on Miraclemets.net. http://miraclemets.net/?p=598

I have all I can stands and I can stands no more. I am sick and tired of watching Mets home games where the story of the game becomes “Hey, listen to Mets fans boo (so-and-so).” This has become an on-going storyline in 2008, and I’m tired of it. As a Mets fan, I am becoming embarrassed by our home crowds. They are booing good players, they are booing bad players, there are stories as to which players “deserve” booing (as if any home player truly deserves to be booed unless they are showing a noticeable lack of effort). I’m tired of it – it needs to stop.

That’s the first paragraph and the rest is here
