Friday wasn't a great game to watch but it had a very desirable outcome with the Mets winning 11-1. However, Saturday and Sunday was kind of painful. For Saturday, I blame the errors of Green and Delgado. For Sunday, I blame Willie leaving Heilman in for a second inning.
Chip Caray and Joe Simpson, I don't like. Well, I guess I like them whenever its a series not against the Mets. Since I'm a Mets fan, it really shows when they start talking about stuff they don't know about. Whereas with other teams, I probably don't notice it as quickly. But man, Caray's commentary about Willie making a bad decision by taking out El Duque was completely off base. He just needs to find some resolution to the story of the game.
And of course, Chip makes a big deal about the Braves being in first after ONE WEEK IN THE SEASON. This after last year when he derailed anyone who mentioned positioning in divisions before June. And he was right last year but unfortunately he only said it then because he's a homer.
Speaking of homers, Jeannie Zelasco on FOX Sports is unbearable. We get it, you love the Yankees. You are on a national broadcast, try to be professional please. At least Joe Buck and Tim McCarver don't look like the obvious homers they are 100% of the time like Jeannie does.
For those of you with MLB.TV, I highly encourage you to check out the new feature included in the basic package called "Condensed Games." It shows all the pitches that went into play plus strikeout pitches. Games usually run around ten or fifteen minutes. It is so awesome. I'm finding myself watching the Mets game, maybe another game, and then just checking out every other game on condensed games. It is so great.
"Leaping Lanny and Randy Savage are brothers, and Randy Savage, your name is Randy Poffo. THAT'S RIGHT, RANDY POFFO. You're ashamed of going around calling yourself Poffo so you probably got the name Savage because you're ashamed of putting yourself on the same level as your brother because he is much better than you are. YOUR BROTHER IS A HUMAN BEING. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A SCUMBAG. THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE; YOU'RE A DOG. YOUR NAME IS POFFO." - Ronnie Garvin to Randy Savage, ICW Wrestling, 1980.
