Found May 20, 2013 on The Daily Stache:
From the Cubs SB Nation Blog: “Byrd batting cleanup? Holy crap, they’re desperate” “They’re the Mets” “May their lamentation never cease” “May Ike Davis be their 1B for the next 6 years, and hit under 2 bills most of them.” “He can die in a *************** Met.” (Re: Marlon Byrd) “Hes a cheater that looks like a ninja turtle,****** him” “the only cheater i like is sosa” “I remember 1969 all too well. Never will be able to warm up to (or even be neutral on) the Mets.?” “Umpire with a mistake? Couldn’t be.” “LOL” “C’mon Barney, do it for Mario Mendoza” “what the hell was that????” “that sucked” “I hate the wave.” “Len: “Ruben Tejada will lead off with two out here…” Say hi to Yogi for me, Len.” From the Cubs MLB Forum: “Nobody catches foul balls over there in Bartman land…hehe” “Lol. That was ugly. Got lucky it didn’t hurt the Mets.” “Is that Rex Ryan in the bleachers?” “Why can’t people handle their beer properly?” “He won’t have to worry about a face plant on that one.” “wow Barney is crappy.” “Lagares is now 713 behind Babe Ruth” “Perfect pitch to smoke by Murphy on a 2-0 pitch.” “Meatballs.” “Fujikawa is terrible. No wonder Cubs fans are so racist. All of the japanese and african american players we bring in are utterly miserable at baseball.” “He could blow japanese hitters away. He is facing superior genetics now.” “I guess that we should be happy that Travis Wood hit a 2 run HR.” “F.uck this team” Extra: Some love for the SNY booth!: “Who does the Mets color commentary on TV was full of praise for the Cub team & predicts they will make some noise in the central. Nice to hear from a broadcaster from another team.” “Mets have a good broadcast team. Hernandez and Ron Darling have a good chemistry with their play-by-play man.” “Mets broadcast team is one I enjoy listening to as well. Good chemistry and knowledge of the game. The exact opposite of the homers in Cincy!” “Usually I “Despise Keith Hernandez” but I love to hear that we are getting some love from other people perspective. He is probably the first that I have heard anything like this besides from Guys like Kurkjian or Olney.” “You’ve got to be kidding. Hernandez constantly complains about everything.” “I really like Ron Darling, he has some keen insight, and is analytical as they come. Very surprised this guy has never been tabbed as Mgr. Was going to watch Met broadcast of game, but changed course when he wasn’t there.” “ron darling is excellent” The post You Mad, Bro? (Cubs Ed. Part 2) appeared first on The Daily Stache.

Is Marlon Byrd Finally Coming Around?

Most of the attention concerning the Met outfield the past few weeks has gone to Jordany Valdespin, both for his character and his play on the field. However, there has been one player who has very quietly got on a roll, and may be able to plug a hole in the still-fluctuating outfield: Marlon Byrd. Byrd captured the attention of Mets fans and earned himself a spot on the roster with...

Ike's Offensive Plummet Drops Him To 7th In The Batting Order, Murph Leads Off For 3rd Straight Game: Mets Lineup V. Reds - May 21, 2013

Publicly the Mets are in support of Ike Davis, their lost first baseman. Davis is hitting a putrid .152 with only 9 RBI through 40 games this season. So, what's the matter? Sitting at home watching Fearless, it drives me crazy to see him jackknife on almost every pitch he attempts to hit, which causes each pitch to be farther away. He looks defeated, and his woes are carrying...

Things Spiralling Out Of Control For Ike Davis Offensively And Defensively

ALDERSON DOING METS A DISSERVICE IN STAYING WITH DAVIS Perhaps Sandy Alderson knew of Andrew Brown’s strained oblique when he said there was nothing imminent about sending Ike Davis to the minor leagues. Assuming he did not, it is puzzling as to why he’s in no hurry to ship out his struggling first baseman. Eventually, Alderson said, “everything comes to a head at some point...

Internal Discussions Of Ike Davis Demotion ‘Intensifying’

Discussions of demoting Ike Davis have intensified within the Mets organization says Adam Rubin of Although the Mets slumping first baseman snapped his 0-for-24 streak yesterday, he may only have until the end of this weekend series in Chicago before the Amazin’s ship Ike off to Vegas. Rubin cites the use of Andrew Brown at first base Friday for the Las Vegas 51s–the...

Sandy Alderson Says He Will Stick With Ike Davis A Little While Longer

Updated Post 5/22 During Tuesday night’s Mets broadcast, general manager Sandy Alderson said he intends to stick with slumping first baseman Ike Davis for a little while longer, but added that there’s a chance that he might be better off going to Triple-A Las Vegas for some period of time. Alderson said it’s hard to ignore what Davis did in the second half of last season, but...

Mets Only Manage Three Runs Behind Marcum, Lose 4-3

For a while, it looked like Terry Collin’s weird lineup choice going into the evening would actually work when Marlon Byrd ripped a three-run home run in the bottom of third. Perhaps unsurprisingly, however, the Mets would fail to score again the rest of the night and could not stage a comeback after Jay Bruce hit a go-ahead home run off Shawn Marcum in the sixth. To be fair to...

Poetry Of The Absurd

Rolling I see the sphere rolling White on red on green The convergence of colors takes me to a special place When life seemed uncomplicated And I reflect on where my life went wrong as green turns to red turns to white Converging to turn into one color Representing the sunset of my life This was written by Ike Davis ... in his head ... as he was watching Joey Votto...

Mets Must Develop Consistency In Batting Order

Constructing a major league batting order is a tricky enough task for a manager in the best of times, let alone with the limited and non-productive options in front of Terry Collins. It was good to see Daniel Murphy back at leadoff Monday against Cincinnati, but somewhat surprised at first to see Rick Ankiel at second. Then again, Murphy won’t be doing a lot of stealing, so there’s...
