News & Notes From Game #2–Willie Being Willie

Last night’s loss was awfully reminiscent of 2007:

Mets fall behind to vastly inferior team, Mets catch up, untrustworthy member of Mets bullpen blows it, Willie Randolph gives lame post-game quote.

The Brewers gave up on Matt Wise so they could sign Eric Gagne. Seriously. Thats pretty much all you need to know about Wise’s abilities and through two games, he has emerged as the guy we are all going to groan about all season long.

Shouldn’t Billy Wagner have been in the game by the 10th? Just askin’.

Willie Randolph said he liked the way the team “battled back”. This would have been an OK comment had the Mets either: actually had won the game or didn’t have their bats go to sleep after the 5th inning. But neither happened, typical Willie.

Pedro or no Pedro, the Mets lost to the Marlins.  The entire Marlins team gets paid less than A-Rod and not only should your team beat them, your team needs to get off to a good start.

Hey Willie, your seat is getting warmer.

Angel Pagan continues to impress, not only showing good hustle but going 1-for-3 with 2 RBI and a run scored. Having watched him play many times for Brooklyn, I am definitely pulling for him.

  1. Corey, you must be inside my brain. Because so far, everything you’ve said this season is almost exactly in synch with what I’ve been thinking and saying over at F.U.

    Last night did feel oddly reminiscent of some of those 2007 nights, didn’t it? Along with Willie setting up the bullpen to fail with This Year’s Model (sorry, Elvis Costello, lol) of Guillermo Mota — one Matt Wise.
