Thanks to Omar though, the pain is not as sharp and deep as it would of been if the Mets would of re-sign him. I'll still watch baseball this year and maybe next. But I'll definately try not to get attached to the characters, like LoDuca.. I think he was well liked, despite the troubles he had in NY.
Good Riddance Mr. LoDuca.
PS. please don't kill the Mets when you come back to Shea.

You can count on him to deliver every time. His songs remind me of my brother, my family, my hometown in Peru and in the messed up but beautiful New Jersey... no, I don't miss it that much- These songs make me feel happy and sad at the same time, they make you get in the convertible you don't have and drive, drive until you get nowhere. I've done that before, it feels good. It's intense, man. Thanks for that, Bruce.
I don't know what it's like to be Born in the USA, but I have a pretty good idea.

My father in-law was gracious enough to fillet some of the crappies, blue gills and bass we caught. He's the best.

C Paul LoDuca
1b Adan Dunn
2b Luis Castillo
SS Jose Reyes
3b David "The Stud" Wright
LF Moises Alou
RF Lastings Milledge
CF Carlos Beltran
Ramon "bucket head" Castro
Oh yeah, before I forget...can we trade for some HUSTLE too??
Now, what's Omar going to give up to get Santana, let's start with Heilman, Pelfrey and, I hate to do this but, Carlos Gomez. In giving up Gomez the Mets must make sure they'll sign Santana to a long term deal. I can see Gomez become a triples machine in Minnesota.

"It hurt my feelings, and I'm mad at myself for thinking there was any loyalty left in this business," Caray, the longtime Atlanta Braves broadcaster, said in an interview Wednesday. "I should have known better."They can do whatever they want to do," Caray said, "but I've done a lot of good work for these people, and it's hurtful that they apparently don't think I can do good work anymore."..."I feel like I can do a better job than a tennis announcer or a football-basketball announcer," Skip Caray said. "I'm not knocking Ted Robinson and Dick Stockton, but point of fact is they don't do baseball anymore and I'm there every day."
So you go off by singing "beat the Mets" on the last Braves game because TBS pushed you aside? It must feel awful to know that your father was better than you and your son is better than you.
That's too bad Skippy.... Your professionalism was as good as Tom Glavine's last game as a met.

After this episode I put on my Newport RI sweatshirt to avoid more grief.
After a little while we go over to a booth to check out some goods and I over hear the vendor say to a Yankee fan:
Okay who's out? Let's start with:
Delgado, Washed out
Green, Washed out
Randolph(?), His moments of greatness are outweighed by his dumb moves. I'm tired of hearing; "I have faith in my guys". If they can hit or pitch, sit them down Willie!!!!!!!!!!
Minaya, you are in limbo...I think you already know you have to do something impressive this off season.

Met fans know that if there's something good happenning murphy's law says that it won't last long and it will go downhill quickly, kinda like what the Mets are doing now, then do better then do shitty again. There's no consistency. That makes it worse I think. They keep you guessing.
I stopped watching the games almost three weeks ago. You know, when they got swept in Philly. Am I a bad fan for that? Okay, maybe. But I would be a good fan if my team was better. If they could get an out or a hit at that crucial moment.
You know, this was the first year that I started buying Mets memoribilia. I don't know if I'll stop buying stuff or not. But they are sure making it difficult for me to do so.
For now, I'm done watching and buying, until next year. Maybe.

So for the past two weeks all met fans in the world have suffered to no end. Watching the mets lately has been like watching your grannie and your best pal having sex.
Pretty ugly. No?
The suffering has not ended yet, friends. Get ready for more "sticky" business. The phreaking phillies are not loosing and the mets are fiding ways to loose games (the f^king nationals just lost to the Phils).
I've been told to have faith. I'll have faith when the fucking bullpen does their job and the Mets get to the World Series.
Ps. Don't forget the tissues.

Game # 5
Mets v. Phillies April 11, 2007
So after donating some blood for the Red Cross we got free tickets to see the Mets. A bunch of coworkers from the P.O. took a trip to Flushing.
Oliver Perez imploded for like 6 walks in a row I think. The only good thing that night was the Hot Dogs, beer and company.

After being told that I looked like Bobby Bo in 1991, I started ditching my soccer heritage and followed baseball more and more. I used to work at an Italian Deli in Orange, NJ and thanks to the owners, a couple of Italian brothers who used to follow the Mets closely, I came to know the misery and joy of being a Met fan. There's nothing like it, really. The first nine years I just listened to them on WFAN and follow them on WPIX....I think Seaver was still calling the games.
Then 2000 comes around and I'm now living in upstate NY. A friend of mine who happened to be a met fan had an extra ticket to the Mets v
Cards, great seats too. I remember it clearly, it was Bordick's first game, Piazza hit a home run and the Mets won it. Rick Reed was the starting pitcher, Ventura was on third, Bordick was at short, Alfonso at second and Zeile on first. Other than getting lost on our way in and out of Shea, it was an excellent day.
When Piazza hit a home run, I felt like the Peruvian National Soccer Team had scored on Argentina in the world cup. Of course, by now soccer is a thing of the past for me, the combination on not playing soccer anymore and leaving my soccer playing friends in NJ just killed any desire I had to follow it anymore, I didn't go out of my way for it. This is were I gained by subtracting I guess.
My next game wouldn't be until 2004. Let's just say that work, marriage, house and baby were priorities. But my loyalty kept growing by the season.
Me and my little met fan.
She's old enough now to know
that Beltran wears number 15 :-)
