I reiterate what I said yesterday:  "Perhaps spend more time working out the kinks ON THE MOUND, Vic."

If we are recycling things, I give you my NY Poo Logs comparison:


THIS "TEAM" IS AN ORGANIZATION...A COMPANY!!!

Snickers......a delicious candy bar.  Maybe it's a bit more expensive than other similar options.  However; I'm OK with that, because the quality is excellent and I believe there is value to where my dollar is going.  However; let's say they change the ingredients to inferior ones in an effort to save money..........and the snickers bar now tastes like a log of poo.......would I still buy it?  NO!!!


Can you imagine if the CEO of Mars Candy came out and said, "If you don't buy our poo logs, we can't make them better...so until you start paying for our poo, this is the product you'll receive...it's your own fault."



...........................THIS IS THE METS ORGANIZATIONAL PLAN.  When you think of it from a different point of view, this nonsensical comparison is EXACTLY what they are doing!

We saw this bromance already...who cares?  What is Sandy doing on this off day to help the team win in 2014...???

Nice story! You learned more about those guys in a relaxed atmosphere, than in a lot of the "sit in the chair" interviews, which typically, include phrases like, "you know I mean (before the player says what he means, or while his bran is fishing for an answer) or, "y'know I'm just taking it one game at a time", "trying to get ready for the season" yadda, yadda, yadda.

Brender is SUCH a cargo shorts guy. That was literally the lock of the century

Mets win 5-4; Campbell 2 for 4 today....Brown hit it in for the winning run. What a good game.

Throw that fish back!  If you keep the fish now, you won't be able to control him 3 years from now!!!!!

I think everyone needs to chill out. Baseball is their job. Just like the thousands of us. Sometimes after work you have to get away and unwind.

Nice story. Now if Vic can figure out where his command went, we'll be OK. If not, Montero & Mejia both make the staff...

Stick to pitching and do the fishing in the off season on your own time.

How about reeling in a good SS and 1B.

Perhaps spend more time working out the kinks ON THE MOUND, Vic.

 Thank you. People forget these guys are human beings and have lives away from the field, despite what many morons think or expect.

@greekgod He's a system player who risen nicely through the system, but is now starting to gain attention & make himself into a prospect. He's one I continue to watch...

@Eric s lynch @greekgod  I thought you were in that age group between 17-30. That is the age group that do not know the difference between a baseball and an orange.
