David Wright Show Us What You Got Tonight

28mets-1_600.jpg

                                          Minaya/Sterling presents,                               

                                            “See Me in St. Lucie”  

As Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez works on his mechanics in Florida the fifth starter in the rotation once again proves to be another of baseball’s legion of understudy’s with a combined record of 8-17 (Jorge Sosa, 7-5 as a starter).   

The fact that MLB’s scheduling department creates a six-day workweek in the summer months and forces teams to play thirteen games at a clip in September showed its wear and tear on the NL East division leading New York Mets last night.   

With an uneventful loss, third baseman David Wright performed a public exorcism of not only the powerful mite of the second place Philadelphia Phillies but of the spirit of the city itself.  The new mayor of brotherly love Charlie (…bear) Manuel decided to flaunt his bridges and sacrifice the first of four games which make up the most important series of his coaching career, in the clubhouse stuffing his face with cheese steaks.  The extravaganza of Citizens Bank with its supermodel ball girls and its towering home runs to left field make for an interesting setting. With Phillie Fanatics begging for detachment from the haunting vowels of migrated Mets fans. The New York Mets, destined to touch the Liberty Bell at season’s end, was delayed and stood still at Port Authority station.   

Last night’s game gave us no JOSE JOSE JOSE and we have awaken from a dream that this we be the “Lastings” we’ll see of Milledge.  I hope to see Endy Chavez tonight starting in right field no disrespect towards Shawn Green but he can start on Thursday when Philadelphia’s Kyle Lohse is scheduled to pitch.   

Tonight’s Mets starter Tom Glavine must understand that win #302 is just as important as win #300. Let’s go Tom its time to show Utley and Howard what hall of fame left-handed pitching is all about.

    I admit David was wrong in arguing ball and strikes but I think he was sending a message to his teammates lighting a fire up their butts.
