FIRE THE WILPONS!!!

Posted: May 29, 2013 by B in Mets

On an evening where the New York Mets came back in the bottom of the 9th to beat the immortal Mariano Rivera, I can’t help but focus on how much Mets ownership is a joke. In an obvious throw-away year, why can’t we Mets fans enjoy a three game winning streak, two against the hated New York Yankees? Instead, we are focused on the pre-game ceremony, where Jeff Wilpon exchanged the following conversation with Mo:

“I wish we could see you in the World Series, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen this year,” Wilpon said.

“You never know, you never know,” Rivera responded.

“Maybe we can get on a run,” Wilpon concluded.

Ownership doesn’t believe in this team! That’s why ownership needs to go.

The Mets payroll for this year is roughly $95 million. Mets GM Sandy Alderson has been giving us the same song and dance about waiting for the roughly $30 million to come of the books with the Jason Bay and Johann Santana contracts next year to finally invest in this team. They could not sign Michael Bourne because they were so protective of the 9th pick in the draft (This pick better turn out to be better than Mike Trout). Fact of the matter is the Mets will have a $65 million payroll next year. They better invest in free agents (not the best free agent class out there). You cannot operate on $70-$100 million dollar payroll in this New York market. The Wilpons complain that fans don’t come out. I say put a product on the field that the fans will root for!

“Maybe we can get on a run,” Wilpon told Rivera. Maybe if you had a major league baseball roster on the field you could Jeff!

The New York Knicks won their 13th straight with a 120-99 win over the Washington Wizards…Kenyon Martin left the game with a sprained ankle…the win clinched the Atlantic division…The Brooklyn Nets beat the Philadelphia 76ers 104-83…The New York Mets lost to the Philadelphia Phillies  8-3…The New York Yankees rocked the Cleveland Indians 14-1…The New York Jets signed S Dawan Landry

Sunday definitely put us locals in a New York State of Mind! The Knicks won it’s 12th straight, the Yanks shut down the Detroit Tigers, and the Mets rallied a win against the Miami Marlins. There’s no better place to be when the locals are winning then New York City! So why was Sunday so special? The Yanks scored 7 runs against the Tigers and Justin Verlander to a final score of 7-0. Verlander pitched 7 1/3, allowing seven hits, three runs, two walks, while striking out four. CC Sabathia out dueled his counterpart going for a scoreless 7 with four hits, three walks, and struck out four. The Yankee bats came alive with Francisco Cervelli going 2-4 and driving in two and Jayson Nix going 3-4 with a homer.

Back in Queens, the Mets scratched their way back to get a 4-3 win over the Marlins. The Mets were silenced by top Marlin 20-year old prospect Jose Fernandez for the first five innings surrendering three hits, one run, one walk, and striking out eight. Once Martinez was out of the game the Mets capitalized on the Marlins bullpen scoring three unanswered, capped by the two-run walk off single by Marlon Byrd.

The biggest win on Sunday came from the New York Knicks, who won their 12th straight against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder with a final score 125-120. The Knicks were lead by Carmelo Anthony’s 36pts and 12 boards and JR Smith’s 22pts and two key three-pointers. Russel Westbrook lead OKC with 37pts, 11 rebounds, and 8 assists. If Anthony and Smith continue to play at this pace and with the likely return of Kenyon Martin, Kurt Thomas, and Amare Stoudemire, the Knicks could find themselves deep in the playoffs.

What a great day to be in a New York State of Mind!

What a great day for baseball! The sun was shining and the temperature hovered around the high 50’s. The seats were great, the frosty beverages flowed, and the Primeo sausage and Knishes filled the belly. Baseball was back and the New York Mets crushed the San Diego Padres 11-2 in front of a reported home-opener sell-out crowd.

The 4th captain in Mets history, David Wright aka Captain America, went 1-4 with a walk, RBI, and two stolen bases. Ike Davis went 0-5 with four K’s and for the Mets to be competitive they need Davis to get off to a good start. The other member of the Mets lineup that will be a make-or-break year is Lucas Duda, who went 0-2 with two walks and a K.

The Mets are 1-0 after Opening Day. The one thing that you love about Opening Day is that everyone is 0-0 and there is HOPE. Hope that your team will make it to some serious October baseball. The Mets are 1-0 and I doubt they will go 162-0, but I’ll take 85-77.

Opening Day Notes: Collin Cowgill went 2-5 with a Grand Slam, two runs and 2 K’s…Daniel Murphy turned 28 yesterday…Scott Rice made his MLB debut after 14 seasons in the minors at the age of 31.
