Protect Our House?

Hi.  I’m off with the family but here’s some Unpopular Stuff I started on twitter this morning which will make you hate me all even more.  This will also bother the people that accuse bloggers of selling out and even Media Goon.  So I will be out here on the ledge.

First, the Mets….

Mets: Saturday Night Baseball

IMG_1303

What a game folks, am I right? CitiField was packed. The crowd was electric, the fans were into the game. People were happy to be at a Mets game. Hey Wilpons! See what happens when you make the moves necessary for fans to feel like you care that you own a baseball team? People show up. You don’t even have to care, just pretend that you do and people will show up.
There was a buzz in that building that I haven’t felt except for the Johan no hitter. The whole stadium felt like I was sitting at a 7line outing. It was that intense at times. Fans were paying attention to the game and not just chatting with a game going on in the background.The ovations for Cespedes and Flores were electric. The Crowd was loving it.THIS is how you start to TAKE BACK NEW YORK. It was tough getting to food stands and bathrooms because of the lines. You know what? I’ll take it.
The Mets down two runs in the top of the first? Last month I would have been like this game is going to be ugly. Not now. I don’t know why I am feeling so sure with the Mets now. I knew they had a chance to come back and they didn’t fail me. It really is amazing when you add some major league players to a team.
The crowd’s leaving the stadium in the stairwells last night were chanting LET’S GO METS and the amount of people and the loudness of it reminded me of Shea. The whole damn night reminded me of Shea. Now that I got a taste of it Saturday Night, I want more. I am going to be greedy and say that I want the Mets to win the east. F*ck the wild card. Play your hearts pit fellas. We fans have been patient enough. This is the year to turn this team,no wait, this organization back to being something a Mets Fan can be proud of. I am not going to overreach and say WORLD SERIES or BUST, but you better get into the playoffs and win at least one series.

I am enjoying this immensely. Shannon it might be time for you to find your mojo and come back to the park…

Cespedes Shirsey and Jersey already in the wild.

Dear @mediagoon, I am glad you enjoy the games

Unknown-1

Dear @mediagoon,

I am glad you enjoy the baseball games in person.  I have gone through several stages of life where I really enjoyed going to the ballpark.  Right now is not one of them.

It has little to do with winning or losing.  I did 35 games with my dad when Mike Scott was a Met, and 10-20 since Citi Field opened, and various waves at Shea as discussed in my book Send The Beer Guy (available for just $3 for Kindle/Apps and $9 for an actual book.)

As much as you enjoy your experience at the games, I really enjoy my experience at home.  I like the twitter hang.  I like the 4 second trip which compares favorably to your 10 minute trip and my 65 minute trip.

I’ve discussed several time that I don’t really like Citi Field as a ballpark.  You can.  Others can. It’s all good.

This morning I actually thought about playoff tickets for the first time since my mid-30’s, and am not sure I’d even want them.  Would I enjoy sitting in Promenade Left more than I would cozying up on the couch with a 60 inch TV and my trusty Macbook?  Maybe once (do they still do day games), maybe a lot, maybe not at all.  I’m not sure.

Anyway, I’m glad you had fun.  I’m sure this post, like many, will have people saying what an idiot I am.  I just like doing things including Mets baseball, and right now I”m not interested in turning a 3 hour TV show into a 7 hour commitment. (similarly there was a time when I would hit the beach 40x a summer including one year I did 14 before Memorial Day! I like the beach but I can’t commit the time.)

Did Flores become the one to finally run Murph out of town?

I got pretty cocky the other night when Flores was traded and added his name to the long list of those who were going to render Murph useless
 
 However, and it’s early here, did Flores run Murph out of town with that soap opera?
 
 I was just telling Mrs MP about the home run and she asked if they would still trade him. As I explained what positions he plays I realized what might happen.
 
 Is Flores the Opening Day 2B? He can also play third should you find yourself needing such a thing.
 
 Will Murph finally find his destiny with the North Mets (of Toronto)?
 
 Uh oh!
