No, not that hole. Although knowing the Wilpons, those are probably pretty gaping as well.
Obvious butt jokes aside, we’ve been talking about the lack of lineup depth ad nauseam. Well, look at us now! Thanks to Murph’s injury, we’re totally fucked once again.
Yesterday, I was watching a “Mets Classic” broadcast from 2010. Tejada was our starting shortstop that day. That means we’re coming up on six years of watching Ruben Tejada make routine starts. Tejada has been our best middle infield option. This should silence any talk about the Mets not playing well, or about Terry Collins not managing well. Tejada six years strong as a starter says it all about our front office and where the blame should reside.
So why not bring up Matt Reynolds? They say they don’t want to bring him up for only a cup of coffee. You know, because Murphy’s only day to day! He’ll be back tomorrow! So what about Money Muno? He’s had a strong Spring.
All I know is that we are officially one week away from being back! And that’s extraordinarily exciting, as it always is. It is glorious. But we have been dealing with the same problem for the better part of a decade now. That’s on the front office. That’s on ownership. Never let the sponsored media spin it any other way. Garbage dogshit ownership. Metsblow.
Tejada is the starting SS today.
Legit proposition: deGrom should play SS when he’s not pitching, so long as Flores remains injured. He’s day-to-day, so we’ll see him next decade.
deGrom is a better hitter than Tejada, and they say a better fielder as well. deGrom came up as a shortstop.
Nothing is more out of favor than pitchers doing non-pitcher things. They have such quirky and superstitious routines. It was even criticized when they’d bring out Glavine to bunt on non-pitching days, even when he was clearly the best pinch-bunt option.
Favor be damned. Trend ends here. deGrom is the best SS we have right now.
Brian P. Mangan, come on down!! You’re the next contest on, “Who Wants to Be the Next Lapdog Bitch for the Wilpons?!”
What a schmuck you are, dude. Go fuck yourself. No Rusney Castillo? No Kang? No Cabrera for barely any money that even these Jews can open their purses for? No anybody? So if Murph gets hurt it’s Flores + Tejada up the middle?
Fuck you, Brian. Fuck you, Metsblog. I hope the Wilpons gave you a second helping of mush for this one.
Alderson gave Cal Ripken award and said something like, “Mets fans have been waiting for me to introduce a shortstop.” Yeah that’s all in good fun until you realize that you’re a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE getting paid by BILLIONAIRES. Quit joking around and do your fucking job.
Flores, not liking all the SS buzz in Metsland, said something like, “I know what I can do, man. I know what I can do.” So do we Wilmer, so do we.
The Mets balked out of a trade that involved:
-Desmond to Mets
-Zobrist/Escobar to Nats
-Syndergaard + ?? to Rays
So obviously it comes down to the unnamed player. If it was deGrom, then I understand not pulling the trigger. Jacob is not to be traded. But what if it was Montero? Or Matz? I think this is just the cheap fuck Wilpons clinging to their measly penny-costing prospects.
