Before the Mets fired Willie they were DONE. The fact that Jerry brought them all the way to the last day, it's truly amazing. Considering the many injuries and the mess of a bullpen, Jerry did a very good job and should be back. It proves, one more time, that pitching wins games.
Saying goodbye Shea eased the pain of defeat. I mean, seeing all these great Mets back a Shea was just awesome. I mean Doctor K and Willie Mays and Mike Piazza? Seaver throwing to Piazza... WOW Very nice!
I'm so freakin' excited about CitiField!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wilpons need to make D Wright the captain in 2009 and retire 31 and 17 and change the loser culture by getting rid of Delgado.
Who should not be at CitiField next year:
Castillo (can't hit can't run)
Delgado (Nice Sept run but it's over)
Heilman (trade him to the AL)
Pedro Martinez (done)
and some questions for next year's team:
Maine (no hitter)
Pelfrey (no hitter)
_____ ? F. Rodriguez?
1B ____ ? Murphy? Carp?
LF ____ ? F. Martinez!!!
