I am expecting to be reimbursed my 50 cents for having to read the trash that was written in the Post today.
You have to love the New York beat writers. I mean, they are so amazing. Yes I am saying this in total sarcasm.
In case you missed it, Joel Sherman had a field day with the Mets in today’s New York Post. Now I get to have a field day kicking his butt back to the hole he dared climb out of.
Tell me, Mr. Sherman, did you really learn anything when studying journalism? I don’t know. Maybe something about not stirring up trouble where there is not any?
Here is what the most illustrious Mr. Sherman has to say in the Post:
These are the 2010 Mets and their greatest curse just might be that they follow the 2009 Mets.This is their closest relative, and their closest relative was a screw up….
So what is making it difficult to fully invest faith in the 2010 Mets? Several items, but let me highlight two:1. The Mets announced yesterday that Francisco Rodriguez’s pinkeye still was not cured and to avoid contagion, he needed to stay away from the team for at least three more days. But here is the problem: He already had been quarantined for this virus earlier in spring and then permitted back for the three days before yesterday. As part of trying to distance themselves from the 2009 medical follies, the Mets’ big motto this spring is “Prevention and Recovery.” But how does allowing a contagious player around the team fit “Prevention?”
The 2009 Mets acted foolhardy to rush players back on the field. So if lessons were really learned about last year, why take even the small risk of spreading a nuisance around, especially considering no one needs less preparation for the season than a closer such as K-Rod?
2. Mets personnel are now blaming former VP Tony Bernazard for the drill last spring that forced players to hit to the opposite field to exhaustion. Let’s assume that is true, doesn’t this reflect worse on all the lemmings still around who went along with this dopey idea: Let’s have players strain their bodies by doing an unfamiliar act beyond fatigue?
Scapegoating the recently dismissed is an art form around the Mets. It was not long ago when everything that had gone wrong was Steve Phillips’ fault or Jim Duquette’s or Art Howe’s or . . .
Fred Wilpon showed up earlier in this camp to say the baseball operations department picked the players who tanked in 2009, not ownership. Of course, ownership hired all the executives who picked players, including Bernazard.
That lack of accountability is so 2009, and makes me wonder if it already has bled into 2010. Are we nearing when Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel will get the Bernazard treatment, losing their jobs and being blamed for everything wrong as a shield against ownership ever taking full responsibility for how this franchise operates?
Yes I know I normally do not quote so much. But I wanted to make sure I got all of the stupidity in. I mean, talk about garbage.
The one thing that took a huge portion of the article was Francisco Rodriguez’s pink eye. Seriously? Pink eye? Pink eye is the only thing you got?
Well of course not. You had to jump on this whole Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran thing with the FBI. There really is no story there. Yet leave it to Sherman to say this:
This has nothing to do with the Mets’ current predicament of being more tied to the FBI than the RBI.
Beltran and Reyes certainly did not have their performance enhanced since both players’ leg problems worsened after seeing Dr. Anthony Galea and surgery ultimately became necessary.
Really Sherman? Did you figure that out all on your own? Wow! What a revelation! I think my IQ just jumped 10 points just by that alone.
I think someone needs to tell Sherman that Adam Rubin is doing well and is not bitter. So get over it. No need to continue the Mets bashing.
I have never been so embarrassed by another journalist.
I mean, wow. Was there anything to really report on? Apparently the whole part of an article needing “substance” is a concept that Sherman cannot grasp. What the hell was the point of this?
Hey Sherms, maybe one day the Post will take responsibility for your crap and let you go. At that point, maybe we can get some real journalism.
His article sounded more like a child screaming to his mommy:
Mommy, mommy. The big man hurt me.
Since “mommy” could not save little Sherm, he lashed out at the Mets.
What happened Shermey? Were you lobbying for a job and they said “no” to you and this is the only way to get back at the big bad men in corporate?
To take a word from my friend and CFoD reader, Kerin in Boston, you Mr. Sherman are nothing more than a whiney, neglected, has been, “ass hat”.
No go back to the Yankees because you know nothing about the Mets or how to report on them. Or better yet, go apply for the New York Daily News. You can work alongside the bigot, Bill Madden. Stupid is as stupid does.
