Willie Should Concentrate On Winning Today Not Tomorrow

An article by posted on May 15, 2008

Willie has it all wrong… He needs to wake up and smell the coffee…

Yesterday, his excuse for bringing in Aaron Heilman, a move that cost the Mets a win, was that he wanted to get a couple of innings out of him, so the bullpen would be rested for the weekend.

What’s he thinking?

Why not worry about winning the game at hand first? Isn’t that the way it oughta’ be?

To make matters infinitely worse, after that disappointing loss he decides to give Moises Alou the day off today. The reason? He wanted Moises Alou to rest up for the weekend.

Mind boggling…

Here is what Moises Alou had to say, he was just as dumbfounded as the rest of us…

"Maybe because I got thrown out after two at-bats on Wednesday, you guys figured I would play. I thought the same way. Willie told me he wanted to rest me for the weekend. Unfortunately, it looks bad now because we lost 1-0. Tough luck for me and Willie."

I think the fat lady has been spotted at Shea Stadium…

Quick Willie, go hide the microphone…
