Willie Watch: Nymets.info

Wow. Don’t go dropping three of four to the Nationals or you upset the bloggers. Buddy is lucky we didnt have this in the late 80’s!

Among the questions aksed:

A few of questions which will then lead into my point. Where was Randolph when Alou got ejected last night? Isn’t the manager supposed to come out and defend his players? Why wasn’t Alou in the lineup after playing just four innings last night? Why can’t he get his team to hustle (the third inning dropped pop-up by Austin Kearns where David Wright and Luis Castillo lollygagged)?

Willie Watch: Faith & Fear In Flushing

What a fun morning! Faith & Fear says:

I’m disgusted that Willie Randolph manages like an NFL coach staring at one of those go-for-two/don’t-go-for-two cards.

Willie Watch: Advance Says Bring Back V

Ugh. Bobby V is the king of finishing second. Look it up. Why would we want that. However, the Willie Watch must report on what’s being suggested:

Fans have waited a year-and-a-third for this team to make a move that’s never come. 2007 was a waste. And so far 2008 is heading down the same path.

Omar Minaya… Jeff Wilpon… Fred Wilpon:

Let Willie Randolph go and bring back Bobby Valentine.

The in-your-face V is awfully high on himself, and he’s spent the last five years in baseball exile in Japan because of it. I bet he’d swim to Shea Stadium if offered the gig.

Let him return and conquer like Napoleon.

>Will They Show The Dark Knight Trailer?

>I love going out to a ballgame and I will pay the cost of a ticket to experience the game live. I also enjoy hanging out at a bar watching a game whee I don’t have to pay for the privelege to watch it and it’s not live in front of me.

What I don’t understand is paying to watch a game that 1) isn’t live in front of you, and 2) is available on TV. I really don’t get this. Why would I want to go to a movie theater, pay $12 to sit and watch a ballgame on a screen with a bunch of strangers all around me – WITH NO BEER.
