Link: Deadspin On Randolph Situation

Deadspin always has an interesting take on baseball. Typically, they’re pretty funny. I had to link to this post today about the Willie Randolph situation that they posted. It’s been depressing writing about this team for most of May (excluding the Yankees series). But the piece that they posted from their comments section is hilarious. It’s nice to be able to smile about the Mets, even if it is at their expense. This is from their comment section:

The Mets promote ‘Bad Baserunning Night’ at every home game. This great promotion is brought to you by many of the players, including Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and even David Wright. See professional baseball players that are well-compensated forget all of the fundamentals taught back in Little League, such as: make sure the line drive goes through; never make the first or third out of an inning at third base; and don’t attempt to steal a base when you are down by four or more runs. Fans young and old will treasure this promotion and have 81 opportunities to take advantage of it. To add to the festivities, even manager Willie Randolph gets into the fray. His post-game press conferences will be filled with such inspiring remarks such as: “I’ve seen it all before,” “I’m not concerned yet,” and “Last year was last year.” Yes, fans. The underachieving group of players that you know and love will thrill you inning after inning with uninspired play that is a direct representation of their fearless leader. A clubhouse divided will give you an entire summer of excitement, and give you ample time to enjoy the NFL once the fall rolls around. — NYSportScene

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
