Machete? Really?

For those of you who read this blog before the papers – well read the papers first – Willie joked that Omar is in Denver sharpening his machete. Machete?

Random Thoughts before I waste a sunny day blogging:

The black hats with the blue bill look horrible on TV. You can’t even see the NY logo. Please ban these forever.

Gary Carter is backtracking on his comments. Sorry Gary, you talked yourself out of the running.

Good line by Mushnick today that none of the Art Howe camera shots were racially motivated. Of course that was Sportschannel/FSNY, maybe they were more open minded.

Starting to see “mainstream media” write the “It’s Omar’s fault too” columns. They like to rip the bloggers but they tend to be 4 days behind the bloggers on everything.

The Times has Reggie Jackson saying, “It can play on our mind. We are going to think about it (race) in times of difficulty, whether you feel sorry for yourself, or whether you just acknowledge it.”

Adding that “it’s fair to think about it,” Jackson also said a man in Randolph’s position must be “sensitive how you express it” toward people you are “trying to meld with and create a better environment for all.”

Tomorrow: How the Mets can eliminate the curse on them.

Tuesday’s discussion (plus or minus the manager’s job): “What is a ‘real Met / True Yankee”

  1. Some thoughts:

    Black hats are fine. I don’t care if they play naked as long as they win.

    Carter answered a reporter’s question and if they asked you if you wanted the manager’s job you’d say “yes” too.

    Love the comment about bloggers being ahead of the curve. When I got out of college all these guys with their journalism degrees were the only ones with jobs. Now they’re pissed because some guy blogging in his underwear occasionally has a better insight then they do even with all the access that the beat writer’s have.

    Nothing gets a writer annoyed more than to have a TV/Radio guy make them look dumb–I can’t imagine what bloggers are doing to them.

    Seriously though, you don’t need a journalism degree from Columbia to know that the Mets need to shake it up and the Omar will leave Willie swaying in the wind before dropping the axe if they don’t.
