    Let's not forget why the Mets are so good this year.



    A Yankee. 'Bout time you caught on.

    LOL

    Mets have a great team this year. Not sure if it's because of or in spite of Willie!

    You forget that we've seen enough of Torre to know it's all about the talent on the field.

    The 50-year-old Randolph becomes the third Brooklyn native to manage a major-league team, joining his former Yankees boss, Joe Torre, and colleague, Lee Mazzilli. Randolph was a Mets fan growing up, went to Shea Stadium as a kid and said he "danced in the streets" when the Miracle Mets won the 1969 World Series

    Funny thing is, I used to watch Torrie when he played for the Mets along with Felix Neon, Jerry Koosman, Dave Kingman, Rusty Staub and John Mattlock.

    God I feel old.

    Although Manager is important in baseball....Unlike football coaching. Managing in Baseball is extremely over-rated,

    Bottom line: Be proud, Mets fans. Be proud of your team. Be proud of your players. Be proud of your front-office. Be proud of your Yankee heritage. After all, we are.

    It doesn't matter if they win it all this year or next; they'll win it in 2008.

    That's how it is in Yankeeland. We don't worry. It's not like we go 30 years between Championships. That's what happens when you win 25% of all the World Series in baseball history. Once every four years, on average.

    Matlack also. Who was the dude that FM punched with the baseball in his hand after he broke up the double play with a hard slide?

    There's some catching up to do, then. But you got some aging players coming off the juice, and suspect pitching as well. Moose is ready for the hunt. What will you do then? Next year George will need to make an historic revamp of the roster. Get ready for some lean years. For a change, his spending in the last decade has finally lost it's worth. It's over.
