>I don't know what kind of scouting reports the Mets get, but the one I get shows they will be facing somone named Webb who has 11 wins. That does not bode well for a team that has lost 5 in a row.
Clearly they need to make a move if for no other reason to shake things up. All yelling at Willie accomplished was to run another two weeks off the clock. This team is going nowhere. Why wait for the inevitable.
Meaningful games in September? I don't think there will be meaningful games in August. I'm flashing ahead to a sports section filled with Giants and Olympics, and one of those sidebar columns with the result and bare bones facts about the Mets game. We saw lots of those in the early 90s.
You can go ahead and order the dry ice for September 28th which will be the final game at Shea. None will follow. (Thought for another day – how empty will that ceremony feel after the Yankees version a week before. I remind you this is an organization that had a marching band on opening day.)
Lee Mazzilli is over at SNY if the Wilpons are looking for him. He watches the team every night. Lee can be in the dugout by 6:30 if you need him, and you do.
