Pretty quiet day in Met Land. Jerry Manuel plans to finalize his coaching staff next week, so it could be that way until then.
We talked about Manny Ramirez this afternoon. But, if those topics aren’t on your mind, or you have something else you want to talk about, feel free. Pretty much anything goes. That’s why I call it “Loose threads.”
Greetings all. Hope you had a good day. Watching the Brewers take an early 2-0 lead on the Phillies. Later the Dodgers can put away the Cubs. If you’d like to talk about the playoffs, or about Jerry Manuel getting a contract, or anything else, this is the place.
I didn’t buy the Red Sox having a curse, and I don’t buy it with the Cubs, either. The Cubs are down 2-0 to the Dodgers not because of bad luck, but because they’ve been pounded. It’s amusing to watch the forlorn expressions on the faces of Cubs’ fans. It’s almost as if they relish in the misery.
What would they do if they ever won? Probably win again, just like the Red Sox did.
I’m watching the Rays-Sox. Tampa Bay losing in the second and Scott Kazmir is struggling. The Rays are the best story of the playoffs, but you can bet the networks hope it will be Boston and the Cubs. Two storied franchises playing in antique stadiums. They are salivating over the potential ratings already.
For those not wanting to talk about Mike Francesa, this is what this post is all about. If there’s something else on your mind pertaining to the Mets, let me know here. Have a trade you want to propose? Want to talk about the playoffs?
Want to talk about the Giants or Jets? How about the Knicks? Do it here. Who knows, this could be a trial balloon for a new blog.
Sometimes you might not want to talk about what I have posted. Sometimes, there are other things on your mind. That’s the reason for this post. I call it “Loose Threads,” for obvious reasons and it is here for you to vent, offer an opinion or ask a question about things not already on the board. Maybe you want to talk about something other than the Mets. That’s OK, too.
