Mota plunked Piazza again...

Postby metsfan1969 » Wed Mar 12, 2003 10:41 pm

I watched Guillermo Mota plunk Mike Piazza tonight and was extremely disappointed that during the ensuing bench clearing brawl he didn't get caught and pummelled by the Mets. Anybody that saw this could see the coward Mota running from Piazza and cowering to the safety of the dugout while his teammates risked their necks protecting him.

I, for one, hope that this is not the last time Mota and the Mets are in the same ballpark. I do not condone violence in the sport, but you have to protect yourself. That's what I'm in favor of...protecting yourself.
Well Look who has come to the cafe, It's Mr. Met!

I watched it on sportscenter and that pitch was going for his head, I never seened Piazza that mad, rightfully so, if he got his hands on Mota it would of been ugly. Another thing is that I take back my previous statement about getting rid of Burnitz via trade, anyone that backs up a fellow teammate like he did is ok in my book, although he needs to be a little more nimble with the footwork.

Hopefully, this shows that the Mets will have better team chemistry this year. I think Burnitz showed his teamates a lot. Chemistry is very important for a successful team and let's hope it all adds up for the Mets this year. Mota is a coward and he'll get his someday.

You know what i like about Nitzy, he tries like hell. Last night was just another incident that tells me he really wants to be a Met and do his best. I hope he has a heck of a year! I really rootin for him.

As far as Piazza, damn, did you see our boys eyes? 8-o I hate to ask it but how many games does he get just for charging? It'll be worth it. I totally agree with Metsfan1969. You got to protect yourself!

Yes, I've seen him look like that only once before and it was last year. I can't remember who hit him, but his eyes have murder in them when he gets like that. Seriously not a good look to have come your way that's for sure. He was looking totally focused on just one thing....hurting someone.

Burnitz was out of his mind. The one thing I did notice is that the Mets didn't go after anyone else. All the Dodgers holding them back and not one fistfight in the entire melee. They were ALL looking for just one guy. Dude was lucky he got to the dugout. JMets you are right. It would have been ugly.

Mets are gonna have a great season.

Yeah, I think the last time he had eyes like that ( 8-o )was when Mota hit him last year. He can take a lot but when he's like that...watch out! !+) Mota's lucky he got outa there when he did. Especially if he went looking for him later on. I heard that the Dodgers were kinda mad at mota for plunkin him. They saw no reason in it.

The Dodgers were probably happy. If Piazza had of caught him they would have been looking for a pitcher to replace Mota.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
