Loose Threads: Bracing for the weekend edition.

Loose Threads: Talking about whatever is on your mind.

Loose Threads: Talking about whatever is on your mind.

The Mets are quiet this afternoon and the ALCS is heading back to Florida. What a game last night. It’s a perfect time for Loose Threads, for you to tell what’s on your mind.

Loose Threads is this blog’s message board for anything and everything.

Some things you might want to discuss:

1. Do you think the Red Sox have turned it around?
2. Your thoughts on the Phillies’ chances regardless of their opponent.
3. The ever popular, who should the Mets keep or get rid of.
4. What about the Players Association sticking up for Barry Bonds?

If you’re dry on the Mets or baseball, how about:

5. Your favorite Rolling Stones song.
6. College football this weekend.
7. What about the NFL?

What is enough when it comes to Burgos?

When is enough going to be enough for the Mets when it comes to Ambiorix Burgos?

The Mets got a clue of his smarts when he left almost $200 thousand in jewelry lying around his hotel room in spring training. Well, being stupid isn’t a crime. However, assault on his girl friend and hit-and-run that left two women dead are crimes.

Obviously, Burgos isn’t wired properly. What investigation can the Mets do that will shed any different light then law enforcement agencies in New York and the Dominican Republic. I don’t care if Burgos can still throw 100 mph.

Why can’t the Mets just say, “we don’t want a guy with this moral fiber on our team,” and be done with it? So what if the Players Association argues? Just be done with him and move on.
