Nady once again with his silken defensive moves . . . . sigh.

He was hustling, though. Give him that.
   202. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:51 PM (#2118175)
I'd be happy to take Cano off the Yankees hands if they really feel that they need to upgrade.
   203. Srul Itza At Home Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:52 PM (#2118176)
"Let's see if he shows a litttle patience here"

Well that was predictable.

NOW GET HIM OUT, DAMNIT.
   204. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:52 PM (#2118178)
Glavine ####### sucks.

God I hope Omar doesn't trade for Zito.
   205. Srul Itza At Home Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:52 PM (#2118179)
Shee-it.
   206. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:53 PM (#2118181)
####### Glavine. Huge disappointment today.
   207. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:54 PM (#2118185)
####### Glavine.
   208. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:54 PM (#2118186)
Glavine gets one more baserunner from here on out. One more, and he's out of there.
   209. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:54 PM (#2118187)
Nady is terrible. WHAT THE #### IS GOING ON?
   210. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:54 PM (#2118188)
DAMN IT, NADY. DAMN IT, GLAVINE.

Glavine needs to be out of this game, NOW. But he won't be.
   211. Bob Koo Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:55 PM (#2118189)
GET GLAVINE OUT NOW!
   212. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:55 PM (#2118190)
Nady ####### sucks.
   213. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:55 PM (#2118192)
WHY ARE YOU LEAVING HIM IN? TAKE HIM OUT WHAT THE #### IS GOING ON? HOLY #### RANDOLPH IS RETARDED.
   214. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:56 PM (#2118195)
Nady's defense is a joke. But that was a bullet. Get Glavine out. Sorry, Tommy G. but you couldn't get it done.
   215. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:56 PM (#2118197)
I bet Glavine starts next inning too.
   216. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:56 PM (#2118201)
Jesus. Pathetic #### from Glavine.

So, does Omar make a move now?
   217. villainx Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:57 PM (#2118203)
That's our Willie.
   218. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:57 PM (#2118204)
By trying to get Glavine the win he's going to blow the game.
   219. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:58 PM (#2118206)
He's leaving Glavine in (or at least I would) because this game is not as important as giving Glavine the chance to work out what's wrong with him. IMO, it's almost -- almost -- like getting in his work in spring training.
   220. Joshemy Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:58 PM (#2118207)
Damnit Tom.

And Nady, stop bobbling the ####### ball.
   221. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 06:59 PM (#2118210)
I bet Glavine starts next inning too.

Randolph is a players' manager. With a huge lead in the division, he's going to give his veteran starter every chance to get the W.
   222. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:00 PM (#2118211)
It's entirely possible that Glavine is a bit worn out. Give him some Pedro-esque rest and start him back up at the end of August.

Won't happen, but it would be worth a shot.

Damn, Reyes, I thought you didn't swing at that pitch anymore.
   223. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:00 PM (#2118212)
Chip Caray is the most ignorant analyst out there. He's singing the praises of Trachsel and Blow Duca.
   224. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:00 PM (#2118213)
And Nady, stop bobbling the ####### ball.

That's at least three balls he's juggled out there.
   225. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118220)
MVP! MVP!
   226. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118222)
Won't happen, but it would be worth a shot.

And it would ensure Glavine would not hit 180 innings.

BELTRAN IS UNSTOPPABLE! TEN HOME RUNS LEFT!
   227. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118223)
I'm completely out of things to say about Beltran.
   228. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118224)
With a huge lead in the division, he's going to give his veteran starter every chance to get the W.

This is exactly what is going on. Glavine will limp tohrough 5 with the lead. He's only getting lifted if it gets tied or teh Braves go ahead.
   229. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118225)
BELTRAN!!!!
   230. Joshemy Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118226)
MVP! MVP! MVP!
   231. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:02 PM (#2118227)
Hundley is going down.
   232. villainx Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:03 PM (#2118230)
Beltran is a baseball god.
   233. Bob Koo Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2118233)
What Banta said. Just unreal.
   234. PreservedFish Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:04 PM (#2118235)
Beltran leads the NL in RBI. According to WFAN. That will help his MVP charge.
   235. Joshemy Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:05 PM (#2118236)
David, welcome to the hit party.
   236. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:05 PM (#2118239)
Come on, Nady. Another run will make me feel better about Glavine's next inning.
   237. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:06 PM (#2118242)
It may be blasphemy, but I think Beltran is solidly the MVP. That's based on data, not how often he was robbed by Barry Bonds.
   238. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:07 PM (#2118244)
Damn. Would have been nice to pick up another run there. No, I don't expect the Bobblehand doll to get it done here.
   239. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:07 PM (#2118246)
Nady ought to get a hit - he's coughed up a few in teh field.
   240. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:08 PM (#2118248)
Do you think Chip calls his dad Skip all the time?

Last time the Mets swept a three-game series in Hotlanta: 1979. That's sad.
   241. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:10 PM (#2118252)
Last time the Mets swept a three-game series in Hotlanta: 1979. That's sad.
I don't like our chances today, either.
   242. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:11 PM (#2118253)
Wow, Willie pulled Glavine.

Awesome.
   243. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:11 PM (#2118255)
Last time the Mets swept a three-game series in Hotlanta: 1979. That's sad.

So sad in fact Radiohead made a song about it.
   244. Bob Koo Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:11 PM (#2118256)
Until this game, I wasn't that worried about Glavine. I still figure he has two months to get his act in gear, but today was quite disconcerting.
   245. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:12 PM (#2118257)
I am shocked that Glavine is out of this game. Wow.
   246. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:13 PM (#2118260)
Oliver is really the unsung hero of this team.
   247. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:14 PM (#2118261)
So sad in fact Radiohead made a song about it.

Or you mean the Pumpkins.

Did I ever tell you guys about Radiohead live in Tennessee back in June? Best live show ever.
   248. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:14 PM (#2118262)
I'm stunned that Glavine didn't come out for the 5th. That's incredible.
   249. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:15 PM (#2118267)
I wasn't that worried about Glavine. I still figure he has two months to get his act in gear, but today was quite disconcerting.

I still think Glavine will get his act together, but what's most concerning is that even if he doesn't, he's guaranteed to start in the playoffs.
   250. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:15 PM (#2118270)
I think, as Skip just suggested, Glavine probably lifted himself. Or at least he might have.
   251. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:16 PM (#2118272)
Glavine was already at 101 pitches and was struggling. I guess I shouldn't be shocked.
   252. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:17 PM (#2118273)
I just realized that with this crappy start it makes it even more likely Omar trades for some shitty starter.
   253. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2118275)
Glavine had thrown 101 pitches, and it is apparently quite hot in Atlanta. A walk to Giles there was NOT what the doctor ordered, Ollie.
   254. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2118276)
Oliver is really the unsung hero of this team.

Come on, Russlan, you gotta save these comments for after the inning is over.
   255. I Love LA (OFF) Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:18 PM (#2118278)
Or you mean the Pumpkins.

Oh yeah, huh. Brain fart there. I'm excused though. I went to sleep at five am.

GODDAMMIT. CAN ANYONE HERE GET SOME OUTS!?
   256. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:19 PM (#2118283)
Atta baby, Darren. Settle this thing down, pretty much like you have all year.
   257. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:20 PM (#2118285)
Oliver, Stache, Ender, there are a lot of candidates for unsung hero.
   258. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:22 PM (#2118287)
I just realized that with this crappy start it makes it even more likely Omar trades for some shitty starter.

But this should show Omar that the problem isn't with the backend of the rotation, it's that the Mets may not have a viable #2 type starter.

I don't particularly want the Mets to get Zito, but I REALLY don't want them to get Livan Hernandez or someone of that nature.
   259. PreservedFish Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:24 PM (#2118290)
I trust Omar. I make that statement generally. I trust that he won't do something stupid tomorrow. If he adds a crappy Livan-like pitcher, it will be for little cost and he won't be anointed a playoff starter. He won't give up Milledge for a rental.
   260. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:25 PM (#2118292)
What Banta? You don't want Tony Armas, Jr or Kip Wells starting games for the Mets?
   261. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:25 PM (#2118294)
Wow. Just one inning from Oliver??? I'm really surprised by this.
   262. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:26 PM (#2118297)
Nice inning from Yates.
   263. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:27 PM (#2118300)
I trust Omar. I make that statement generally. I trust that he won't do something stupid tomorrow.

I wish I had the same confidence. The Kazmir trade ruined me, I can't enjoy the trade deadline anymore.
   264. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:28 PM (#2118304)
I trust that he won't do something stupid tomorrow.

Omar's gonna be good to us. He'll get it over with today and put us out of our misery. ;-)
   265. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:28 PM (#2118306)
If he adds a crappy Livan-like pitcher, it will be for little cost and he won't be anointed a playoff starter. He won't give up Milledge for a rental.

It's not even a matter of cost. A crappy pitcher would take the place of Maine or Pelfrey or even Bannister. I'm not interested in seeing if some mediocre veteran has something left at the expense of auditioning young talent.
   266. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:29 PM (#2118308)
Bradford is badass. I like him a lot.
   267. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:31 PM (#2118310)
I wish I had the same confidence. The Kazmir trade ruined me, I can't enjoy the trade deadline anymore.

As I said the other day, if this trading deadline goes well, I'll be confident with Omar. Until Tuesday though, I'm gonna be stressing a bit.
   268. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:32 PM (#2118313)
OK, THAT'S funny, playing "Suicide is Painless" after the catcher takes one in the balls. Someone has a warped sense of humor.
   269. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:33 PM (#2118316)
McCann is an awful match for Bradford.
   270. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:37 PM (#2118324)
Feliciano for LaRoche. Good move. Tough luck for Bradford here.
   271. AJMcCringleberry Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:38 PM (#2118325)
Why do things have to be so difficult?
   272. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:39 PM (#2118332)
Ugh.
   273. Joshemy Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2118335)
Nasty Feliciano!
   274. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2118336)
Pedro # 2!!!!
   275. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:41 PM (#2118337)
Thank you, Feliciano!
   276. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:43 PM (#2118347)
In 82 ABs against lefties, Feliciano has struck out 28 and walked only 1. He has allowed only one homer.
   277. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:47 PM (#2118355)
The Mets have been really good at identifying good relief pitchers lately. Credit Peterson?
   278. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:49 PM (#2118361)
Very nice job by Yates. Good for him.
   279. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:51 PM (#2118363)
Yates is certainly looking good.
   280. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:53 PM (#2118367)
No Heilman here. Anything significant in that???
   281. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:58 PM (#2118377)
I am surprised we haven't seen Heilman. Maybe he's next?
   282. Russlan thinks deGrom is da bomb Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:58 PM (#2118379)
Very bad defense from Wright there.
   283. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:58 PM (#2118380)
Action bet! First batter reaches! Any takers?
   284. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:59 PM (#2118381)
Yup. He's next.
   285. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 07:59 PM (#2118383)
Well, that was quick!
   286. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:00 PM (#2118384)
Huge. Bullpen has been studly today.
   287. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:00 PM (#2118385)
Chris, YOU are a natural-born pessimist.

And in this case, pwned by Mr. Heilman.

This has, thus far, been an outstanding relay job by the pen. Baton goes next to Dirty.
   288. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:02 PM (#2118387)
See, I'd let Heilman pitch until he finds trouble. He needs to work out some suck.
   289. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:03 PM (#2118388)
Sam,
Heilman has been awful coming in with ROB this season. Recognize?
   290. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:04 PM (#2118393)
Delgado pwns the shift!!!
   291. Old Matt Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:05 PM (#2118396)
Best double ever?
   292. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:05 PM (#2118397)
Wright goes 2-4 . Let's go Nady!
   293. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:06 PM (#2118401)
It's amusing. The change in Delgado's "luck" has been tangible today.

I only put "luck" in quotes because it's a much better approach to hitting than he's had for awhile. Still, that double that got through the shift is pretty lucky.
   294. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:07 PM (#2118404)
Heilman has been awful coming in with ROB this season. Recognize?

Yes, I know. Just giving you a hard time.

Not Nady's day, that's for sure. Terrible AB with the run at third.
   295. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:10 PM (#2118408)
Woodward's been pretty craptastic this year.
   296. Orange & Blue Velvet Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:10 PM (#2118409)
That's gonna cost. You MUST get a run there.
   297. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:11 PM (#2118410)
Really horrendous situational hitting from Nady and Woodward. Wow. Nady especially; you must put the ball in play there.
   298. Banta Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:14 PM (#2118413)
And now Chip is saying that Heilman has been "awfully good" out the bullpen. He really has no clue about anything.
   299. Sam M. Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:14 PM (#2118415)
Wow -- one of the best jobs Heilman's done with a hitter in a while. Andruw had NO chance. Nasty stuff.
   300. Chris Dial Posted: July 30, 2006 at 08:18 PM (#2118423)
Delgado pwns the shift!!!

Stop that.
