It’s funny, if this team came out of the gate slow and played terrible baseball in the first half like was expected, nobody would be screaming about making moves and management not caring, because we all knew the team is in transition, building from within while dealing with the Madoff fallout. But because the team played better than we ever dreamed, now people are going crazy, even though the biggest problem besides the bullpen has been injuries to starting pitchers.
I pray that this doesn’t become more of a daily gripe spot than it already is and becomes more of an enjoyment of the progress the team is making if not always in the standings. For the first time in years, there are quality youngsters developing or at least getting a chance as well as a plan in place which hasn’t existed in forever.
Agreed, BJake. How great is it to watch Tejada? Wright? And the day to day pleasures of watching this team play baseball. No hitting the Nats for seven innings tonight, for example. Watching Davis scoop out Parnell’s throw to get Morse to start the 9th. Nervously watching Murphy start the 4-6-3. Hey, Mets baseball: gotta love it. I’ll be out there tomorrow to see Dickey vs. Gonzalez.
