The Mets for May, lets break it down

Well Mets fans, it was not the April we expected from the boys from Queens. The team went 9 and 12 and has caught the injury bug as well. Carlos Delgado and Luis Castillo have missed a few games and Brian Schneider is still on the DL. This is a problem that I do not think most Mets fans have realized has cost us games. Carlos Delgado started out hot and then felt the pain in his hip and tried to fight through it. He is the leader of this team on the field and in the dugout. When he does not play it hurts the Mets. Luis Castillo started out trying to show he still had it and then went down to injury.
   Then there is the bullpen issues. The Mets addressed this issue in the off season and I, like most Mets fans, thought it would be much improved. Well we have yet to see the improvement. I think that Jerry is still trying to figure this one out. He needs to get it done soon. I realize that with the WBC he did not get his full team for spring training but he has had the month of April and should have his lineups and bullpen figured out by now. All I can say is Jerry get it together.
   Now as for May, the Mets start out in Philly and we all know what that means. I know the season is young but in my opinion the Mets can not afford to lose this series. It could be just the spark the team needs to start on a streak. The Mets send Mike Pelfrey out to the mound for the first of three. He is 2 and 0 so far but his ERA is above 6.So if he starts pitching like he did last year he could really start some thing here. Oliver Perez is scheduled for the saturday match up and who knows which OLLIE will show but this is a major concern. The Mets spent 36 million to resign this kid and so far have not gotten their moneys worth. On Sunday the MEts will throw John Maine out and he and Perez have pitched well against the Phillies so lets see some real Mets baseball. See you next week Mets fans.

   First day of May and The Mets take the first of the series from the Phillies behind Mike Pelfrey and a strong outing by the bullpen with J.J. Putz and Fransico Rodriguez both pitching lights out. Great start to the months Mets fans.

Baseball, America's pastime?

   I was sitting watching the Mets game and thought I would give the CBS Glog thing a try. As I read the post of the other gloggers I could not help but notice that over half the conversation taking place in the Glog-verse were not baseball related. 
   This made me think a lot about what has always been America's Pastime. As a child baseball in New York was the the beginning of summer. It signaled the winter was ending and brought together friends who may have different favorite teams but always had one thing in common, BASEBALL. We never got together to watch the game on the TV or listen to the game on the radio and then talked about football, local news, world events, we talked baseball. It was the escape many of us needed and it kept being that for me to this day. No matter how bad the world seemed or seems now I always knew that come April I could just catch the 7 train to Shea (now Citi)  or sit on the roof and listen to the game. The world would just dissolve around me and I could for a few hours just love my Mets and baseball. Win or lose it was and is such a joy to the sport.         
    I know I have been rambling on but there is a point to this. I miss the days when both baseball fans and Mets fans just loved the game, not the business, not the media hype, just loved their team and ALL the joy that went with it as well as the pain we feel when they lose. Not the off the filed fiascos nor the player agents and the point of business they thrive on. Just being in love with your team and the game.   
    So this is what I am looking for. Why do you love the game? Why do you love the Mets. Is it the hit and run, the infield shift, the squeeze play of the good old fashion home run. As Mets fans the only one we can not use is the no hitter but I do believe this will change this year. As always and forever in my heart, Lets Go Mets.

Just a thought, may it push or pull


If a person can not serve their purpose than they shall wonder aimlessly into an unwelcome abyss
Your thoughts are welcome and the quote shall change daily.

And for today we have....


It is not where we have been but what we do with our past that shows us our future

And todays is this....

             If I could change the future, I would change thought


 If we think but not learn what have we done?
