Gameday Live 90: Mets at Braves

Good afternoon Mets fans. Today the Mets turn to their ace, All-Star Johan Santana to try and halt a two game losing streak at the hands of the hated Atlanta Braves. Opposing him will be the Japanese righthander Kenshin Kawakami (5-6, 4.26 ERA). Kawakami's been pitching very well of late, he's won his last two decisions and lowered his ERA, which was at 5.74 on May 16, in 10 of his last 12 starts. The Mets are sending out the perfect lineup for him to lower that further, Gary Sheffield is not in the lineup, which boasts a combined 19 home runs this season (and five of those came while Jeff Franceour was a Brave). Luckily Santana (10-7, 3.09 ERA), who shutout the Reds in seven innings last start, doesn't typically need too many runs to win.

Quick question for all you out there......????

Has anyone heard or seen the Wilpons, Bernazard, and or OMAR ?????

These guys go into hiding ! They NEVER face the music.

The team has quit. Granted the injuries have been catastrophic, but DO NOT LET that mask the fact that Omar is ALWAYS a step behind. The team won 85 games completely healthy all of last year!

Completely healthy this team DID NOT have the make up to win. Horrible starting pitching, no mid relief, no bench, no kids to bring up, no team chemistry, no guts, no heart, no brains on the base paths!!!



Citifield will be a GHOST TOWN in August....and Wilpons will feel their wallets shrink even more .....

Now any one looking for Freddy and cannot find him --well that's b/c
this A$$HOLE has got a vault under Shiti field where he is counting his loot !!

this Scum-Bag ! should sell already !! and Omar is a idiot that has destroyed the Mess for years to come !!

We need new owners and start from scratch !!!

Look at the whole situation , with Beltran now becomes damaged goods with 2 bad knees and Reyes with chronic hamstring problems.

and all the problems and our bad contracts ( Castillo and Ollie)--with the Wilpons not adding payroll---with a bad farm system=
= equals a bad team for years to come !! Do the Math and you will see what I mean !!!

If others want to wait for a mets renewal, rebuilding which will take only God knows how long, have at it. God bless you; I'm tired of mediocrity, small thinking, freakish situations. I have no more love for baseball. And I no more patience for the new york mets, no matter who the owner, GM or players are. Baseball is no longer fun for me
