Fransisco Rodriguez gave up 11 runs during three innings.

He was pitching to Hugo Chavez so giving up hits was a prudent decision.

Plus the Minister of Infrastructure & Housing has no range at third.

As much as I have fun teasing Met fans, It hard to deflate them with stats from a *SOFTBALL* game. To begin with, K-Rod was throwing the ball under-hand...


Some might argue that with his declining indicator stats last year he may be better off throwing under hand in the Majors here pretty soon ;-7

Screw that .. See stick. Pick up stick. Poke Mets fans with stick.

The size of the stick doesn't matter in my book.

How badly run are the Mets? Think about this: the Mets played in a World Series and still were the least efficient team in baseball. They spent $737.5 million more than Florida and won four more games than the Marlins.

There are too many times when I want to quit watching baseball because of how retarded the ownership of my favorite time is. We really do need to clean house. Keep Wright and Reyes, and throw everyone else away for prospects.

Open competition on who plays first base for the Mets...

Rob Neyer wrote:That's right, friends. Even though he already had Murphy, Minaya chose -- from among all the sluggardly sluggers looking for an invitation to spring training -- another left-handed hitter to compete with Murphy.

Against left-handed pitchers in his career, Jacobs has been utterly useless: .221/.269/.374.

Against left-handed pitchers in his career, Murphy has been slightly better: .240/.289/.442.

Granted, neither of them have been crackerjacks against right-handed pitchers, either. Jacobs hasn't reached base often enough and Murphy hasn't hit for enough power. But each might be useful against right-handers.

Rotoworld-

While trying to ramp up his workouts in preparation for reporting to the Mets this week, reliever Kelvim Escobar felt a twinge in his shoulder.
In other news, dog bites man. The Mets will proceed slowly with Escobar, who was just pointed out as a possible setup man by GM Omar Minaya Tuesday. The oft-injured pitcher had surgery on his shoulder in 2007, missed all of 2008 while recovering, and pitched only five innings last year for the Angels. If he can get healthy enough to pitch this year, he'll compete with Japanese right-hander Ryota Igarashi for the setup role. That's a big if.
