Random Saturday Tidbits

The Mets lost despite homers from Cameron, Floyd, and Hidalgo. Glavine unjustly gets saddled with another loss. Who cares anymore? I just assume the Mets will collectively suck when Glavine takes the mound.

  • I'm not sure what Pitcher Abuse Points are, but it sure does not sound good. The Mets have four pitchers in the top fifteen and two out of the top six.

  • Interesting Quotes:

    "He (Kazmir) was lights out," the GM said. "I mean lights out. He threw everything for strikes, and he's a good athlete on the mound. It's easy to sit back and say, 'How the hell did they give up on this guy?' But the Mets know their players better than anyone else."

    Umm...too much credit. Really, too much credit.

    "He's one of the premier lefties in all of minor league baseball," said the scouting director. "If that's all they could get for him, they should have called around, because I know we would have given up a lot more for him."


  • I would love to know which team's GM this guy is. I sure an curious as to what is the 'a lot more' he is referring too.

    "I would not be surprised at all if both those guys are on our staff sometime in 2005."D-Rays GM Chuck LaMar on Jeff Neiman and Scott Kazmir

    In all fairness, the same article that produced those quotes also had this:

    A major-league assistant GM who's on the fence about Kazmir said that Mets did a good job keeping his innings low and creating a "buzz" around him.

  • Cedeno on St. Louis fans:

    "The fans here, they know how important it is to cheer for the team," Cedeno said before the game. "They're really unbelievable every day. It's amazing.

    "They don't know how to boo here. They come in, enjoy the game and understand the game."


    Roger, why the hell would fans boo a 70 win team that has arguably the most potent 3, 4, & 5 (and now 6) combo in the league? Try playing there for two consecutive last place seasons while fans watch the front office continually shoot themselves in the foot. Cedeno is a dumb ass. Mets fans would be cheering too if the Mets were in the same position. It is not like the team often gives them a chance too cheer very often. I think the term frustrating best describes this team.

  • Kaz was sporting some new goggles. But I guess you can call them the anti-rally goggles. He still managed to make a key error. Actually it should have been two errors on the play, but the official scorer was feeling good. Maybe he just got laid.

    Kaz had 116 errors in 1156 games in Japan. I'm sure the scoring is pretty much the same so it is not like he was getting free passes. When you take his error totals and estimate the number of errors he would commit for playing every game in a 162 game season, you come up with 16. Now, that is much better than what is going on right now. In the 108th game he has already committed 23 errors. It is safe to assume that he will eclipse the 30 mark which is horrible. I still think he is not this bad. Is it mental? Is SS just too hard in the States for him? Either way, something has to be done. It is quite debilitating. The Mets cannot afford to give away outs to a team of St. Louis' caliber or any team for that matter.

  • I hope Larry Walker had trouble getting a flight to St. Louis. That is one scary ass lineup. It is a wonder what a good GM could accomplish if they just put their mind to it
