Greetings and salutations my fellow Met-heads! Once again we had a nice finish to the weekend with the Mets beating the D-backs in 2 out of 3 games in the desert. Even if Johan didn’t get the victory, we can still take away the fact he out dueled Danny Haren. Now on to Dodger Stadium to take on Joe Torre, Andruw Jones and the rest of our rival Dodgers. Hopefully, Ollie will get his head out of the clouds long enough to shut these guys down. I’m sure the last thing any of us Mets fans want is a repeat performance of his last outing…
On to the “Monday Metsy Award”!
This week I gotta go with Ryan Church who has been playing as well as anyone and was referred to as the Mets MVP so far this season by my esteemed colleague Jessica DeMattia. I can hardly disagree with her given his .318 batting average, 4 homers and 22 Ribbies while playing a very good rightfield. So congratulations Ryan Church, this “Metsy’s for you! No thanks needed…you earned it.
Also, while on the subject of the “Metsy”, it was suggested to me to change it up a bit. So next week, I’m inviting YOU, our loyal readers to decide who should win. Next week, just leave a comment on my Monday blog about who you think should win and why. Let’s see who gets the most votes…
Just a side note before I close. Does anyone else enjoy watching Roger Clemens look worse as this whole McNamee/HGH/Steroids mess goes on? Now he’s apparently hooked up with Mindy McReady, John Daly’s ex, and a bartender. He’s like Wilt Chamberlain Lite….
Anyway, I hope you all have a great night.
I’ll leave you with a video from Ryan Parker, who comes up with yet another song about Roidger.
Enjoy! Later folks!
