Another fun Mets slur: Willie Randolph is an escaped criminal screenwriter. His real name is Randall Wallace, perpetrator of the godawful movie Pearl Harbor.
Fun true statement: Hey Mac, guess who’s having a rally in his tour across Alabama for Governor within 50 feet of my office at my work two weeks from yesterday?
Everyone’s favorite – Judge Roy Moore. Aren’t you proud of me?
*insert sarcastic, snide comment about Moore here*
And no, I can’t stand him either (and I’m from the conservative right)
Did anyone show up?
Okay, no politics, except for insulting Roy Moore. It may be hypocritical but I don’t care.
I meant it’s in thirteen days – we’ll see. Should I autograph a picture (by me of my signature) and send it to you, since it would obviously be Roy Moore meeting me, the amazing legend that I am?
I mean, c’mon, I have a wikipedia entry – ah well, so does he.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Wryn Vance (1984-) is a color commentator for American football in Alabama. Vance combines with Richard Byerly to form one of the most well-known and most-liked tandems in Alabama high school athletics.
A 2002 graduate of Lee-Scott Academy and student at Auburn University, Vance is a former state basketball and checkers champion. He currently resides in Auburn, Alabama.
Recently, Vance befriended long-time baseball announcer Skip Caray and encouraged Caray after spending time together. After spending time with Vance, Caray claimed to be renewed and decided to continue broadcasting with Turner Sports through the 2008 season.
Vance, a devout Christian, recently said that “God is number one in my life, and after my family, the Atlanta Braves are far and away my third passion.”
I don’t have a Wikipedia entry. There’s one in Wiki Gonzalez but it’s blank.
Mac, I ask you not let this become a bash Roy Moore thread. He hasn’t done anything to you personally, you just seem to dislike him for his views, and it’s not right.
As for the game, what are the odds we here the idiotic “Larry” chant from the Mets’ fans?
My magazine (DJ Times) is in Wikipedia and, I’m proud to say, there’s even a biblical reference!
I love that the entire entry for Jim Bowden is:
“He gave $18 million over 4 years to Cristian Guzman.”
And that’s the whole thing.
bobby’s solution to offensive woes:
Play Brian Jordan and Matt Diaz versus a RH. Move Jeff Francoeur up in the order.
So we’re 7.0 games out of first and TBS says Cox’s big solution is Brian Jordan and Todd Pratt over Adam LaRoche and Brian McCann and Jeff Francoeur batting in the #5 spot?
Whoops! I mean Matt Diaz over Ryan Langerhans, not Todd Pratt over Brian McCann. My mistake.
nice work bobby
Switching out Langerhans for Diaz is switching out a righty-lefty matchup for a righty-righty matchup. Not very Bobby-like. I wonder if Langerhans is hurt.
Yeah, putting Jordan in the starting lineup will really help this offense.
Those people really hate Chipper, do they?!
Thank God, Paul Lo Duca.
That’s great, giving up lead again…
Who was it yesterday that was talking about our pitchers bad pitches when they are up 0 balls 2 strikes? Looks like we continue that trend today.
And Jordan continues to get hits, what’s up with that?
Have I mentioned that I love Brian McCann? Why is he hitting so f’ing low in the order?
And McCann continues his tear. This kid is a future Allstar.
“but it gets results”
BAHAHAHAHAH, if you call not driving in any runs results, yes it does!
I swear I’ve been meaning to say this, not just because he did well there… But leave Jordan alone. He’s hitting well in a limited role (.280/.333/.400) and very well against lefties (.444/.444/.778). I didn’t want him on the team either, but getting him in the lineup isn’t a bad idea at all.
I know Willingham’s having a monster year, but if Brian doesn’t make it as an All-star this year, I’m tearing up my ballot.
Mac, he has been doing well. But how long will it last?
Agreed Jenny… I’m loving McCann!!!
It’s not like Jordan and Diaz have played much. I especially like Bobby giving Diaz a surprise start considering Langerhans has been struggling.
Hopefully, when it stops Bobby will realize it and get him out. But right now, would you really rather have LaRoche out there?
Just so we understand each other: I meant Brian McCann. (Bobby, are you listening? The best Brian on our team is BRIAN MCCANN! Not Brian Hunter, or Brian Jordan, or Brayan Pena–BRIAN MCCANN!)
Mac, as I’ve stated before. I’ll take ANYONE over LaRoach. 🙂
Ohhh shit, here we go….
Kyle is having a little control problem here…
Oh, NICE pitch!
That kid can make some knees buckle with that curve. Unbelievably scary how good he could wind up being.
And that was a horrible pitch. But it worked.
Thank you Steve.
Davies is the luckiest man on earth right now.
I had a chance to pitch Wainright pitched last night, and I can swear Wainright’s curve ball is even better.
I meant “watch Wainright pitched”…sorry…
Good to see Edgar running. I’ve missed somebody stealing bases for us.
Is that all true? I don’t use Wikipedia a whole lot, so I don’t know.
Even though that bunt was a hit, that was a pretty good play by Jordan. He got to the ball quickly, made a good turn and throw. Giles just didn’t get there in time.
Yeah, Marcus was playing up the middle…
I just checked Wikipedia. It’s all true. Except I think he spelled his own name wrong at the end of the blurb 😉
Well…that’s not all too bad…
We’re lucky the Mets decided to swing at a pitch. Davies could have walked guys forever.
aahahahah, WOW, so lucky.
Who is this player/announcer? He is awful. He sounds like a choking drunk. “Uhhrrhrrhrrhhh…” That’s what it sounds like.
I only hear the TBS announcers. Are you watching TBS?
I have no idea. I’m on MLB.TV and there aren’t any graphics so I can’t tell what channel it is. But this guy is Mr. Mumbles!
Jenny, you are watching the Mets’ network. We should be hearing Ron Darling, Keith Hernandez, and their other guy.
Sorry to hear that. By the way, Coon, why haven’t I seen you on AIM?
Probably because when I rarely do get on, it’s really late at night and you, being an hour ahead, are in bed 🙂 But I don’t use it that much right now.
And kc, does the Mets guy sound drunk to you? He’s slurring all his words.
Well, that’s just a buncha… hooey. Have you taken your exams yet?
No. We’re on a weird schedule, I still have 4 weeks left.
Eww, stink. I’m already done. I took my fifth and last exam yesterday morning and I’m already home. Just in the past 24 hours, I’ve watched half as many Braves game as I have all season so far. It’s pretty darn sad. I saw Matt Diaz for the first time yesterday. It’s weird not having time to catch ball games and reading about people and having no idea what they look like. Does anyone else suffer from this disease?
If the MEts announcer is the old guy,Bob Murphy, I think he had a stroke a year or two ago, not positive but I think i remember hearing that.
Thanks, now I feel bad…
Im wrong, just checked, cant be him, hes dead
WWWooohoo, go Renteria!
Bob Murphy’s dead. That’s Ralph Kiner, who has indeed suffered a stroke.
Wow, nice one, Jenny. Ralph Kiner’s a good man, too. He plays right field on my MVP Baseball team. He’s so good I moved Mantle to center to accomodate him. And you make fun of his speech… sickening… 🙂
Thats it, I live in NY and get stuck listening to the Mets on the radio too often, drew a blank on the name for a minute there.
The good thing about our lineup is we still have Langerhans and LaRoche on the bench. Make fun of LaRoche all you want, but he’d be a darn good bench player!
I have put my foot in my mouth enough times to have it permanently glued there. Maybe I should save myself some time.
Don’t worry about it, my girlfriend just said the same thing: “Why do they let a drunk guy announce the game?”
McCann is UNSTOPPABLE!
I’m loving my McCann!!! WOOHOO!
Should be 5-2, dunno why he let Frenchie run.
Davies is around 80 pitches now.
that was a great catch by Chip!
My gosh, will somebody please MOVE THIS GUY UP IN THE ORDER? This is approaching the ridiculous. I don’t care what draft pick he was. Right now, he is a better hitter than Frenchy, period. Better than LaRoche, period. Bat him 5th or something! Why is he stuck so low?
we’ll never know the reasoning behind it…
Just like we’ll never know why he put LaRoach ahead of anyone in the lineup.
jenny, there’s something to be said for distributing your best hitters throughout the lineup. I’m not saying that’s why they’re doing it, but it’s not necessarily a bad move.
OK, I can see that. That’s a good reason. But I just doubt it’s Bobby’s reason. Which may not be fair…
good point Joey… I’ve thought of it both ways…
but if we’re losing… something definitely needs to be tweaked
“almost skins his knuckles on the mound when he delievers”
LOL Skip is so funny.
Me like this.
Finally, we get some runs. At least we can count on the Mets to get us going.
Ick. Francoeur’s baserunning error leads to Andruw being out at the plate. End result is 1st and 3rd instead of 2nd and 3rd, so it’s not a huge error, I guess.
we can never get too comfortable with our leads though… we’re good at giving up runs sometimes unfortunately
There are never enough runs…
Wow, even McCann’s outs are noisy right now.
I thought he might have had that one… but…
Not with THIS BULLPEN!!!
Davies is at his best when he just simply attack the strike zone instead of aiming for the corner…wait…I can say the same thing for all pitchers!
Maybe that’s the best role for Adam, a late inning defensive replacement.
Here we go. Now this is what I am used to.
wait…I can say the same thing for all pitchers!
Greg Maddux begs to differ.
I love how when the Braves were doing well this inning, all the Mets fans could do is engage in wars of “Let’s go Yankees!” and “Yankees Suck!”
Of course, now we’re giving it all back, so what does it matter? Ugh.
oh god…here’s Edgar again…ground ball right at him…that’s indeed his weakness on his defense.
Here we go…
Plays like that come with the 21 game hit streak. Unfortunately, there’s no way to seperate the two.
OMG!!!! YOU’RE KIDDING?!?!?
if anyone can come up with a way to lose this game… WE CAN UNFORTUNATELY!
Why does god hate us?
That’s all I can ask for, Bobby giving McBride a chance.
Yeap, Grst, Mad Dog and Tommy will say differently.
I wonder if Edgar would move sideway on balls hitting right at him. He seems to be pretty good with the back-hand catch.
God damn I hate New York fans.
Is Edgar still capable of bending over? He looked stiff on that throw last night too. Take the good with the bad I guess…come on Black Manta
I hate Mets players having smiles on their faces.
Come on double play!
I’m really starting to not like the Mets.
Ray actually is pitching pretty well. That was tough luck.
We’re looking like the Bad News Braves…
The Braves are pretty good with blowing leads…
“Mike Remlinger up in the bullpen.”
I just threw up in my mouth.
Load the bases….. Yeah I love that fuzzy logic of Bobby’s.
Landogarner…force play at home, double play oppurtunity…
Oh, yes. I live in Japan.
There are already 2 outs kc
Yeah that was a good idea….. NOT WL:RTj:ADBNsfdln;’xcblks’bdmvlnzfx;lnls’dfjf
god damn i cant listen to these games anymore. bullshit
I still love you, Julio!
Ouch, billy-jay. You win.
I LOVE JULIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Landogarner, there was only one out.
Hmm, I THOUGHT there were 2 outs, my bad.
Still would have pitched to him.
Maybe fuzzy logic is indeed Bobby’s creation…
I’d hate to sound like a psycho Christian, wait no I wouldn’t, but Landogarner, do you mind not dropping the G-d bombs? I can assure you He doesn’t like that…
That’s okay, Rob. It’s pretty cool over here.
I used to follow these threads and watch Gameday at the same time, but Gameday’s been fairly unreliable lately and these threads used to be pretty descriptive. I guess I’ll have to go back to both.
I hear ya, billy-jay. About 15 games into the season I dropped Gameday as a reliable way of following the game. I had been sticking to BravesJournal entirely…
That is the most unacceptable thing I’ve ever seen a team do. We unquestionably deserve to lose this game for that.
I think teams are figuring Ken Ray out. I don’t wanna sound overly negative here, but I really don’t see what everyone sees in McBride. I know he was on back-to-back outings, but I didn’t see it last night either.
Rob, I think Ray actually pitched pretty well…
…boy, I hate Reyes.
Everyone has been pretending McBride is good forever. I don’t get it, he has done nothing to earn that trust.
Jesus christ this team is going to give me a heart attack.
Dan, at least there is hope with McBride. You can’t say that to the other guys…
Lefties hit over .333 against Remlinger I think…
Lando, when Rob asked you to stop it with the “G-d bombs,” I’m sure he didn’t mean substituting in “Jesus Christ.” I’d like to respectfully second the request…
I think I am currently having a heart attack…
oh… and now Rem?!?! oh boy!
Boy, do we ever need a K.
ok, the Braves should have won that first game at Philly…they should win easy tonight…sight…
That was fortunate.
Let’s have a little Remlinger Redemption.
Respectfully, if you don’t like what I am saying.. don’t read it. As you people who like to talk about movie reviews said to me. I’m not forcing you to read it so it’s kind of funny that you would complain about me saying JESUS CHRIST GOD DAMN
I don’t think that’s a valid comparison. What you are saying is antagonistic to many (at least two on this thread). Movie discussions generally aren’t.
In the end, though, it only matters what Mac thinks.
landogarner, I think there are some differences between movies and jesus christ.
Well even though you fundamentalist christians would like to erode the few freedoms we have left in this country, I believe freedom of speech is still one of them.
Helluva battle. Gotta give it Remlinger there.
I owe you one Mike. I will not be as harsh on you on your next bad outing!
Landogarner, I am not a christian, but there has to be some level of respect on top of freedom of speech.
I am an atheist btw.
We got out of that by the skin of our teeth.
You’re free to say whatever you like. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences (such as being kicked off the board). Again, this is Mac’s place and he sets the rules.
Let’s just enjoy the game and not worry about that guy. He’ll stand before the One that he’s cursing one day…
But on a much more happy note, Remlinger pitched out of a nice little jam there.
This is when Renterie, Chipper, and Andruw get us the lead…
And KC, no there doesn’t have to be, that’s what freedom of speech is for. Someone elses beliefs shouldn’t prevent me from saying what I want to say.
Look what David Wright found.
Uh-oh, the evil fundamentalist Christian coming for my freedoms garbage.
I’m not going to talk religion or politics are Mac does not like it and this is no-doubt not the place, but exactly what freedom are the fundamentalists Christians coming for? The right to kill your unborn? They can’t take that away no matter what. Gay marriage? Can’t take a right that never existed, can you? What?
It’s just because you’re a democrat and most of the fundamentalists vote republican, that’s all. That is why you never hear about the “Christian left” even though over 4 out of every 5 democrat describe themselves as Christian.
LOL Rob, you naive little man. If god judges me unworthy of going to heaven for saying GOD DAMN AND JESUS CHRIST, well then I will be more than happy to go to the alternative.
Landogarner, then people can curse at your family and throw that freedom of speech at your face. I am sure you would be ok with that.
Landogarner, you’re at liberty to say what you want to say, but as billy-jay mentioned, that doesn’t mean there’s no consequences. But, in all due respect to kc and others who may read this and be non-believers, you won’t be held accountable to just Mac…
No Dan, I am not naive enough to believe one party, or the other, is the answer. The fact that you vote for whatever your party tells you to, says a lot about you.
Come on Francoeur…
Folks, I didn’t mean for this to evolve into what it’s become, especially with the guidelines Mac has set on here. There’s a time and place for everything, I suppose. I appreciate kc, Dan, billy-jay, and Jenny’s support, though.
Ok Rob you just keep on living in your little fantasy world. I’ll live in this crazy place called “reality”
Wow, we need a run in the worst way. I really don’t the idea of extra innings with this bullpen.
You beat me to it, Rob. Sorry, guys. I didn’t mean to start something like this, I was just trying to make a polite request. It was answered kind of rudely, but that’s okay. Can we all drop it now? We may, despite our best efforts, still win this game 🙂
Landogarner, I’m sorry you feel that way, man. I would really like to enjoy this good ballgame with the good Braves fans that are on here without hearing that stuff. I’ll live in my “fantasy world” and you can take your chances with eternity. That’s all I’ve got to say.
I wish I had your optimism Jenny, but I’ve listened to most of the games this season.
Dude, those pitches weren’t even CLOSE.
Chuck James…meaningful innings…here t’is…
So, what’s the situation. CNNSI’s scoreboard still says it’s the bottom of the 8th.
Yeah, James usually struggles with the first two batters. That’s why he should be a starter.
bottom of ninth, one out, runner on 2nd, james pitching, woodward batting
GOOD GAME HU? I feel a win for the mets is just around the corner!!!!:)
You spelled “huh” wrong.
Yes I can Rob, that’s the great thing about this country. I hope your fantasy comes true for you.
James is hurt, Moylan coming in. Not looking good.
Yeah NY METS Dan, the Braves are pretty much trying to give this game to you.
What’s wrong with James?! Hammy I guess, sigh…
Here’s a word that’ll surely offend: douchebag.
Oh great.. Moylan..
something about him is hate-able.
And here is Peter Moylan to give Chuck James the loss.
thanks, my spelling is just the best huh?
Who are we referring to, ububba?
so whats up braves fans? I have not come to check up on you guys in a while.
Our irregular visitor.
Peter Moylan is a drug dealer.
Go away NY METS. You know you wouldn’t be here if not for out AA bullpen.
Why do you say that Jenny?
hay guyz, doo YU reley theenk the bRavez can win ths gaime nowe?? YALL must bee totul Ideeots 2 thinke you AREE butter than thee mETs!
They said on the TV that he was a pharmaceutical salesman. That’s a drug dealer, right? 😉
Dan, I come here reguardless, it has nothing to do with your crap pitching. Dont be mad, or as we say in NY –DONT HATE
Hey NYmet what’s the difference in our payrolls this year? 50million? Try to keep that in mind everytime your head starts swelling. And keep in mind one of our best pitchers is gone for the year.
Whoa, a K!
I didn’t realize NYMETS is Dan Kolbb.
Just got home, and from what I’ve seen/heard, this isn’t going to end well…
WOW, IS MY SPELLING THAT BAD NYMETS?
I find it pathetic that it is May 5 and I have to get up to go turn on the heat.
Not well at all brad, but Remlinger had a good outing.
I had to go when we were up 5-2…what happened?
Oh, and the next thing to happen will be that Brian McCann gets injured, so the only guy left on our bench for extras is Betemit and we have what, 1 guy left in the pen?
What the hell are you people talking about? where did the payroll talk come from or my head swelling up? I didnt realize that i was being a dick. Just came here to say hi. Its not like the mets are even winning. So what are you all upset about?
What happened? The Braves happened, what else.
Well, typical Braves blowing lead fashion, and Chuck James just hurt his hammy I think.
I knew it. NY Mets is Dan Kolb, posting here out of anger over his phoney blog/bolg.
Wss it Davies, or the pen?
try to keep it light can you? jeez
Oh yeah way to go Jenny. If McCann gets hurt now I am so going to hunt you down.
Will you come a-waltzing Matilda with me?”
Both, I’d say. Davies was walking the line all night, he got in a jam, and the bullpen couldn’t bail him out. They gave up the lead after Davies put two on, I believe.
NY METS Dan, you have to realize your appearance here does not represent a “hi” to all of us, haha.
A little of both, brad.
Ok, thanks. I thought maybe me not watching a game would turn our luck around. Oh well.
Lando, the idea was for a reverse jinx. But if that happens, feel free to come kill me.
Wow, this is a bad matchup, Wagner/LaRoche.
Well, this guarantees we’ll see Moylan for the next 3 months.
Davies gave up two hits and then McBride and Ray stunk up the joint. Four run lead blow faster than I ever seen one blown.
Uh-oh, a lefty on LaRoche…
LaRoche wants to hit a lefty…here’s his chance
KC: I know but no reason to be an ass. Just having a friendly chat, no hard feelings or anything. Its a ritual that I come here when our teams play
Nobody wants you to come here and say hi. No one likes you. Even if we DID, we wouldn’t want you to come say hi. This website is for Braves fans, you moron. Whether we are leading the division by 10, or whether the Mets are leading the division by 10, nobody cares what you say or think. Your opinion is irrelevant.
Jenny, will do.
NY Mets Bizarro has a great e-mail address.
Nah let him stay. With him here everyone forgets they hate me 🙂
Did my television say 7-6 Braves for a minute or so? Now it’s back to 6-6.
The rollercoaster of emotions continues. Can we just go ahead and get our inevitable loss and move on?
If you didnt care what I have to say, you wouldnt bother talking to me you retard. I could care less what you think, no offense or anything. Dont be mad buddy, smoke some pot or something. Maybe you will calm down some
Well this has turned into a battle of the bullpens. Kinda see where this is headed, I’m afraid…
I like you humor Landogarner.
Way to end your sentence with a period.
if something happens to McCann…. I think I will die………
LoL, NY METS, the fan we love to hate. Keep it up buddy.
Somehow I doubt it.
thats all you can say. wow, what a loser. there is your period dumb ass
See, NY METS, you popped in right after our bullpen blew a huge lead. Maybe it wasn’t intentional, but it seemed like taunting. It’s like running in and telling your friend that the guy you’ve been chasing for a month agreed to go out with you right after she’s just been dumped. Terrible timing, and it’s not going to go over well.
……… some extra ones if you need them
Moylan = strikeout machine.
Nice use of capital letters to begin a sentence. Your first grade teacher must be proud.
For the record, I find NY METS to be entertaining. I realize I’m in the minority, though.
Oh yeah, I used a smiley. Sorry.
The board has officially deteriorated…
Billy, well KC and a couple other people did for a little while. Don’t ruin the moment for me 😛
Well, this is about as lopsided a bullpen battle as you’ll see: A multi-million dollar FA vs. a former pharmaceutical salesman from Australia.
Oh, I find him entertaining, too. Idiocy is the oldest form of comedy.
I like Moylan more than Reitsma now…
I just got home from work. so i figgured i would check the score and chat some. I didnt come to talk shit, or come here when it was convinet because we came back and tied the game
Seriously, did anyone else see that 7-6 score? I walked away and came back and it was 7-6 Braves, so I checked here to see what happened. No one had said anything so I went back to the television and it was back to 6-6. The second time this evening I went from happy to sad in about a minute.
Please Mets, use euthanasia. Hit a home run. Put us out of our misery. This feels like another 18-inning NLDS. I can’t take that.
This guy’s pitches have a ton of movement.
Kc, you actually liked Reitsma????
Moylan for closer?
Oh, is that why you came here? That’s what I figgered. Idiot.
Dan, I just deleted a potential post that said that TBS said it was 7-6 for a second. I didn’t wanna sound like an idiot though, so I didn’t send it.
Better score soon or else LaRoche is gonna have to pitch after Reitsma.
Whoa, who is this Moylan and where can we clone him???
well she is proud. Kinda like your mom was proud that at the age of 20 you were able to whipe your own ass all by your self.Dont fuck with me. You dont want any of this. please keep it friendly, Its in your best interest………some extra periods for you buddy. I know how you like them.
Landogarner, if I gave you an impression that I like Reitsma…than…I guess I would have to make it clear…NO.
Bobby, please don’t take Moylan out.
That was actually exactly how it happened with me too. I saw 7-6, decided to break out Gameday, realized it couldn’t be so, looked back at the screen, and saw it was still tied. I was really disappointed…
No more Moylan. Let’s see if Betemit can start us off…
hey ny mets, chill dude.
ok, Reitsma is coming in. I guess Bobby wants to head back to the hotel.
“Dan, I just deleted a potential post that said that TBS said it was 7-6 for a second. I didn’t wanna sound like an idiot though, so I didn’t send it.”
Thank you. For a second I thought I had gone crazy. I guess I was, since when I saw the 7-6 score I thought LaRoche had hit a home run.
Im pissed I missed so much of this game. It looks like its been one hell of a game from the box score
Yup, bout time to give up the ghost in this game now that Reitsma is in. His streak is ready to die anyways.
yes yes yes
New rule: Putting Betemit in the game is never a bad idea.
Add THAT one to the “book”.
In my best Mick Hubert voice (for those who know who he is):
OMFG!!!! BETEMIT FOR PRESIDENT!!:lj;DLSJFAS;LKJF;LSDAJFSDAL;FJSADFJSD;LFJSJF;SDJLF
This is what happens when you use your closer 2 innings in a non-save situation.
Way to go, Marcus.
Let’s get some Reitsma Room…
Help me out here…
son of a bitch!!!!!!!!!
I’ll tell ya what happened NY METS: We’re about to blow our SECOND lead!
I’m just kidding; I have faith in Reitsma.
Just for the record, NY METS, Betemit homered off Wagner.
Wilson hit a solo shot off Wagner .. making the score 7-6
BETAMIT homered, 706 braves
HR by Betemit off Wagner, a prodigious blast to right center.
No f-ing way. I didn’t see it. Was it off the great Wagner, blower of three saves (same as all last year), and horder of gullible Mets’ money?
Please Reitsma, please. Not tonight.
wagmer is playing hurt, thsy should just shut him down till he is healthy again. Dirty sanches can close for a bit
I’m just kidding; I have faith in Reitsma.
Hey, Rob, when did you start sniffing glue?
Yes, I am totally kidding.
At least Wagner hasn’t given up any big homers this year.
Faith in Reitsma……… Isn’t that blasphemy?
“faith” and “reitsma” don’t belong in the same paragraph. I’m still terrified.
At least… we’re winning?
Hey, I may be putting my foot in my mouth in a couple minutes, but I think Reitsma will be a dominant reliever when he gets a hold of his fastball. He already has his curve and change working…
yeah, his home runs he gave up have not really hurt him thus far. but i got a bad feeling about this one. but i will still hope for the best
Hahahah, Jenny beats me to it and does a much better job of it.
Well, in light of our earlier discussion, I think I should note that “faith” and “Reitsma” do go together. He’s a devout Christian. Google him.
Rob, I’m only on my 1st margarita…did you just say reitsma would be a dominant reliever?
Whoa, Moylan has the coolest picture ever.
Well, at least he hasn’t blown as many saves as he did last year. Oh wait…
Yeah Brad, I wonder what Willie is thinking. Why use Wagner for two innings?
I’d say “pray” and “Reitsma” are more synonymous.
settle down there braves fan who has the mets for a chat name. Wagner will be ok. He just hurt is finger. all will be good soon
brad, you’d better start tossing those back quicker if you want to be able to forget this tomorrow.
Rob, I remember a couple of yeears ago (I think the year of Charles Thomas) we had a TON of Christians in the clubhouse. Chucky T, Reitsma, Smoltz, JD Drew, just to name a few.
Maybe I’ll want to remember it, who knows =)
Well for all of us I hope Reitsmas faith and your faith and whomever elses faith is well placed tonight.
Haha, I’m still in the boat that Reitsma can be dominant. He may not be Lidge, Gagne, Smoltz, Wagner (heh…), Rivera, etc., but I think he can be a solid closer. I’m at a loss for a potential comparable, but I’m thinking a Todd Jones, Armando Benitez, that A- tier of a closer. By the way, I haven’t really checked the stats of those two guys, so don’t hold me to those comparables.
KC–WILLIE IS A DUMB ASS. nothing more needs to be said. He is from the damn yankees. what do you expect
ububba, ahahahahah, nice.
There were a lot more Christians than those you mentioned on the 2004 team, Tennessee Brave. I saw an article on in a while back, but I can’t find it now.
OK, as the guy in Jurassic Park said about 80 times, “Hold onto your butts…”
Julio was, I know…
Oh yeah Rob, those were just a few off the top of my head. I think we must have read the same article.
Well, this is either going to be the most unlikely win of the year or the most crushing loss. No in-between here.
LETS GO METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RALLY CAP TIME
Let’s see if Reitsma can find control on his fastball tonight…
COME ON FLOYD. he really has to get out of this slump and lead this team
Time for a potty break.
ububba, I think I would still be more hurt by the Wednesday night lost to the Phillies…
his bat had been non existant this year
Alright, ummm, I’m going to shut up now…
I hate Reitsma
Well, that didn’t take long…
Can you please tell me what happened?
I have officially joined the “Get-rid-of-Reitsma” bandwagon.
That’s Kolbb like efficiency.
yeah baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cliff floyd is the fucking man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why was Willie trying to use Wagner is two consecutive innings? That hardly ever works out for closers.
I know Jorge Julio sucks, but jeez.
As punishment.. this game should be lenghty.. make reitsma pitch til an outcome…
wow I hate him
Reitsma threw one down the middle to a struggling Floyd, and floyd hit it about 500 feet. as predicted.
Yeah, Tennessee, it’s real hard to defend Reitsma right now. Man….
Yes, home run. TOWERING home run.
Seriously F*** Reitsma, screw that kid.
After watching him pitched for more than two years, what more does it take to convince people Reitsma sucks?!
one more !!!!! just one more run. Lets go mets!!!
what a good game. exciting as hell
HR Floyd, on Reitsma’s second pitch.
Adam Laroche, Russ Ortiz and Paul Byrd are also believers from that team. Pendleton is, too.
I’m officially no longer a believer in Chr*s R**tsm*.
The rollercoaster countinues. Will it never end!?
Please end this, please!
Before people blame bobby, and not to beat a dead horse, but as I’ve been saying all year, this is schuerholz’s doing, guys.
Wait, I think Reitsma is even more efficient than Kolbb. At least Kolbb walked the first batter…
damn crapsui, trade his ass for a bat boy and a bag of balls
At this point I’d take my chances with Joey Devine over Reeksma. At least Devine has some glimmer of hope left.
Wow, three hard-hit balls.
To your point, Tennessee Braves:
Atlanta Christian web
Yeah, I have never really hated on him, but enough is enough. I mean, call him whatever you want – unlucky or just plain bad – but the fact of the matter is, he is a not a very good relief pitcher. Personally I always thought he was VERy unlucky, until now. I like the guy just fine, but I would really like it better if he was not on my favorite team.
Bobby did nothing wrong tonight actually.
Now what do we do? Seriously.
Moylan looks like he’s earning a shot. Something has to be better than this.
NY METS, Matsui drove in the tying run.
Endy has been hot as of late. come on man, one more run!!!!!
Has anyone planned Reitsma’s offing yet?
Jenny, we bend over, spread our cheeks, and bite our tongues.
that maybe so KC but he is 10 danny kolbs rolled into one person with a 8 million dollar price tag
Stu, add C.J. Nitkowski, Adam LaRoche, and let’s not forget Julio Franco, whose walk-up song tonight said “People get ready, Jesus is coming back,” said this:
“Andy Van Slyke is right,” Franco said. “I’m on the best juice there is. I’m juiced up every day, and the name of my juice is Jesus. I’m on His power, His wisdom, His understanding. … Next time you talk to him, tell him the steroid I’m on is Jesus of Nazareth.”
I’d have left Moylan in. This is an important game and he was doing so well.
Who is left in our bullpen?
Are we going to have to use a starter?
Rob: that was damn funny.
Reitsma is bad. It’s true. Have y’all noticed anything about the rest of the pen?
Why is that funny, NY METS?
Damn, Land…could you be any cruder? That’s worse that having to watch reitsma.
Bobby may use Sosa tonight. I think that’s his last alternative…or is Sosa pitching tomorrow?
Dan, there’s nobody left. So yes. We run Reitsma into the ground and then use a starter.
We could always let LaRoche throw an inning if we have to. Everyone but the Braves wanted him to pitch, not play first base.
Sosa’s going Sunday.
Hey, will James close for us or his he too young to consider?
Sosa is warming up.
We have nobody left in the bullpen. Reitsma’s gonna have to hit. Monday’s an off-day. No idea who would come in to pitch, if nec.
Next time you talk to him, tell him the steroid I’m on is Jesus of Nazareth.” good stuff a little into god would you say. lol
Yeah, that’s what they said. Sosa’s the next option. What’s weird is if we scratch out a run here, Reitsma will get another “unofficial” save situation.
Well LaRoach couldn’t be any worse at pitching than our current bullpen so I’d be game to giving him a chance.
Attention Atlanta residents: open tryouts for a bullpen spot. Come to the Publix in Marietta Sunday at 12. Prior baseball experience not needed. 2 arms and legs, also not needed.
Mccann DP…I suppose I cant blame that on LaRoche.
Yeah, I’d say he’s “little into God,” NY METS. Good thing for you guys God is in Julio Franco.
Alex, we can try, we can try.
Julio’s intro music is Twila Paris’s “God is in Control.” Yes, I’d say he’s into God. And I admire him unendingly.
You have to be effin’ kidding me. Get that Canadian’s ass out of this game.
Alex, everything from this point on can be blamed on equal parts reitsma and schuerholz.
GOTTA GO FOR A BIT, I will be back to check on things. Take care and thanks for keeping things civil.
And McBride and Ray.
The best thing that could happen here is a 20-inning game where reitsma blows out his arm so bobby CANT use him anymore. B/c you know he’ll stick him back out there tomorrow…
As Mac has said many times before, maybe Reitsma is indeed better off to be a starter. His control seems to get better…
No, we had the game won. we were 3 damn outs away and have no closer.
brad, I think the Braves had the game won twice…
More wishful thinking: Perhaps Sosa comes in and scores a save.
This has game 4 of the NLDS of 2005 written all over it. And I don’t expect a different outcome. I honestly can’t believe I’m not watching, though if this game ain’t over when Jay Leno comes on, I’m flipping. I just know we aren’t going to win this, I can feel it.
While the little fella is gone–I think it’s past his bedtime–can we all please agree not to talk to him at all anymore. Yes, he’s ignorant, and he opens himself up for easy insults with every line of every post he makes. But the only way he’ll go away is if he gets no response from us. I’m begging you. I can’t tolerate this uneducated, ignorant fool’s presence much longer. He’s never here when the Mets lose, and he says nothing of value. Ever. Please help me to make it stop.
I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t admire Julio Franco, Stu. And when you consider where he’s placed his trust, and where he says his strength is derived from, I will submit there’s only one juice that can keep a 46 year old playing major league baseball, the Lord Jesus Christ.
You win, Stu. I’m witcha…
Maybe so, I didn’t get to see that part. But that backs up what I’ve said all along–this is JS’s mess.
Mac: It’s Reitmania! Not a major league closer but an incredible simulation (going off memory.)
It’s now MAY 5TH—you think JS will finally get ollff his ass and nip the whole “Lobb 2: Electric Boogaloo” thing in the bud from Reitsma and go out and get a real f-ng pitcher?
God I hope so and pray.
Here we go, an end to the pain. thank god
This is not looking good.
I don’t think JS or Cox will do anything but move people we already have around. And eventally we’ll be 12 games back and it won’t matter.
End it please. I never thought I’d root for a loss before, but just end it now. I accept our 8.0 games out of first and 3.0 games out of second status for now. Let’s focus on taking the next two.
Sorry, but can someone tell me how many outs there are? I forgot and I’ve got no graphics.
I am tired and having spelling issues.
Of course I meant KOLBB 2.
This is going to be a hard game to bounce back from, though.
Heck no, let’s win this one, and take the momentum towards the sweep.
So which of those Braves fans that they showed in the crowd do people think might be ububba?
and we play tomorrow at 1…that’ll definitely be the b-lineup.
I feel sick.
Why not bring SMOLTZ in for 1 batter.
By the way, there is definitely something we can blame Bobby on because Chip and Joe did: Chuck James injury.
Chuck got hurt because they said he’s been under used.
thats a problem.
I feel sick everytime I see Reitsma pitches.
But today was the B lineup
Can we bring in Donald Trump to fire McBride and Reitsma? I hate disliking any player, no matter how bad, but they both seem AAA material at best (at least right now.)
The Game tomorrow is at 1?
Good luck Tim…we NEED a complete game, buddy.
we got out of it
That would have been nice the first time.
Reitsma escaped but boy does he SUCK.
It’s a miracle! Rob, thank your god for me please!
Still holding out hope here. If they can pull this out it’ll be big.
Tim needs a complete game, and to drive in 2-3 runs. Who goes for the mets?
It will be big indeed.
Hey man, I don’t need to do that for you. He’s more than willing to listen to you too.
Yeah but even if we get the lead we gotta somehow make it so they don’t score too.
You know, I was going to out tonight and “drink” with “friends”. Thanks, bullpen, for allowing me some quality time alone in my apartment with my television.
ububba…your here! I haven’t been on most of the night so I actually thought you might be at Shea. We could have used your good karma there in person.
Landogarner, you had my hopes up! Don’t say it’s over until it’s over!
Hey, we’ll drink with you, JoeyT.
Sorry Dan. I was just wishing for an end to the pain and suffering :/
Wright tried to throw that one away. His defense is shaky.
Speaking of drinks, I so feel like I need one. Some Johnnie Walker is called for.
I freaking HATE Shea Stadium, that big cavernous hell hole that it is.
I’m going Sunday.
I was out really late last night & when I remembered that it was Trachsel pitching I decided to bail.
Of course, I’m being held hostage by this game now.
Yeah, it’s the Mets’ turn up. Time for a couple of shots. Let’s make it tequila in honor of Mexican independance.
That Rentaria drive would have been out in say Atlanta or Philly.
Well, here’s sosa. Not sure I wouldn’t rather have reitsma.
Ok, that last comment was uncalled for.
Alex, don’t make the pain worse. We don’t need to know that…
“That Rentaria drive would have been out in say Atlanta or Philly.”
I think they’re all about 400 feet straight center.
Actually, ububba, good point…considering this was a Traschel game, it’s rather appropriate how late its going.
Yeah, Alex R. McCann hit a woulda been HR earlier that’s out of the park in probably 75% of MLB parks.
Sosa looks like Ryne Duren tonight.
Hurry up and lose so I can watch a movie.
I did not just say that…
he walked him
leadoff walk. the inevitable is coming…
This is it, I can feel the end coming on.
Reitsma’s achievement tonight has been to extend the game long enough to lower his bloated ERA.
I wish Bobby had kept him and let him blow out his arm…
Haha, I’m with ya jenny. Just get this over with.
Hi, Chris Reitsma here, live-blogging via the dugout laptop.
I really resent what was said. I feel I’ve been very good this year for the costs…..anyway, I am now looking for a new job.
Uh oh, reitsma’s back!
I think Sosa has thrown one strike, maybe 2.
Why couldn’t someone have hit a line drive off Reitsma’s head? That would have been nice
Why did he swing? Mets = morons.
No alex, only the important players get hurt, remember?
Matsui actually hit a liner back at him & Reitsma caught it.
Alex, come on, that’s awful.
How was that not out????
Does reyes bat every inning?
Sosa threw a strike!
The Mets are so dead now.
My heart… can’t …. take… any… more….
Yes, it’s mean and I am sorry.
Can I root for him to at least get a really bad 5 month long stomach virus?
tell me what’s allowed and I will settle on that 🙂
How do we keep getting out of this mess?
Might as well win this damn game…
Well, we’re in NY, right? Maybe he could get one of those Jason Giambi intestinal parasites.
See, the mets aren’t that great. They should have won this game 2 hours ago.
So, Bird Flu is not Ok, right? (JK)
Whatever happens past this point, both teams are going to be running on fumes the rest of this series.
jorge julio is their reitsma
I don’t want to say it and upset everyone in the room, but this is beginning to feel like that 18 inning game in Houston in October…
sorry (preparing for bricks to be thrown at me for bringing it up).
Hey, God, how about ‘changing the script’ and giving us this win.
If the Braves did actually win this, we’d still have a tired and crappy bullpen but it my get the guys going and excited?
Brad, we can only hope.
Some of the opinions stated here are almost as hurtful as what John Smoltz kept telling me last year after me and my idol, Kolb, supposedly costs him 18 wins.
Except joey devine is nowhere to be found, alex. Gotta be a good sign.
The Braves have a fever, and the only prescription is Jorge Julio…
Yes, Land, I second you & Brad.
No, brad, julio gets strikeouts.
Hmm, our bullpen will be tired AND crappy. Oh the horror.
In that NLDS game, the Astros resorted to Roger Clemens, not Jorge Julio. Have faith, my friend.
FYI – The Mets have 19 LOB so far.
ummm, Andruw, swing? Please? next time?
How many have we LOB?
andruw looked like laroche there.
….I MEANT when they are over the plate.
Like that strikeout.
Ok, leadoff guy is on
I saw MI:3 tonight… why did most of our bullpen get used for only a few batters?
Kyle, how’s MI3?
Because that’s how Bobby uses his relievers.
We have 10 LOB.
Nice SB, Chipper…
Kyle, why ask questions for which their are no answers? Or at least ones that us mortal beings are able to comprehend.
*cue Twilight Zone music*
I still like francoeur batting behind andruw.
That and they sucked.
After seeing “MI: III”, Please don’t start spouting “Dianetics” by L.Ron Hubbard and changing your kid’s name to ‘Suri’. Just checking.
Hehe, you’re funny Jenny.
At least we are 100% sure Pratt will be starting instead of McCann tomorrow…
