    Why does JOhn Miller insist on pronouncing Beltran's name as Beltron? He emphasizes every Latin players name and he sounds like a moron.

    The Mets are taking it to the Phillies tonight, hammering them 8-0 in the 6th inning. Jose Reyes hit a grand slam.

    While the players may be unwise for signing like this, credit to the Mets for doing as the Yanks should. Lock up the players while they are young. I'd like to see the Yanks sit down with Wang after the year and work something out.

    Maine has pitched a couple good games in the AL too. I think he is a pretty good pitcher.

    He got his head handed to him on a number of occasions in the AL though.

    with that said- I think he has a good chance of being a part of the mets rotation of the future. More so than Mike Pelfrey.

    According to the pronounciation on his ESPN.com player card, it is pronounced "Bell-TRON".

    Lo Duca is getting a divorce that is why he isn't going to talk to the media.

    I wonder if this means he isn't going to talk to Benigo anymore?

    Only The New York Post would have this story (actually I'm sure it's her picture that really raised its profile) occupy ~95% of the front page, while in small print at the bottom is the unimportant news that 15 Israelis were killed by Hezbollah.



    ETA: Apologies to the moderators if this is not considered appropriate content for the forum. Was only trying to point out how the tabloids sensationalize a player's alleged transgressions, particularly if there is a revealing photo of someone involved that can be plastered on the front page to boost sales.

    Geez, I player can't even get divorce anymore without his life story becoming headlines for the back pages of the NY tabloids.

    Was he put on the roster? He's been pretty good off the bench, IIRC.

    Sierra Mist may be a new Met fan.

    Ruben Sierra is prepared to join the Mets if his ailing mother's condition improves soon. Sierra hit .179 with four RBI in 28 at-bats for the Twins before his July 10 release. The goal would be for the 40-year-old, switch-hitting outfielder to work into playing shape in the minors, join the Mets in September and be available for the postseason roster - assuming he can prove himself during the minor-league stint. "Ruben is her only available child and he is taking care of her. If her condition does not improve soon, it is possible that Ruben will not join the Mets," said agent Chuck Berry, who plans to be at Shea today to visit client Julio Franco.

    Heh. I also heard on the radio today that he was after a 19 year old girl. Keep in mind that Lo Duca is 34. And that the girl rejected him as well. Talk about a bad week

    Somewhat buried in that completely unnecessary story about Paul LoDuca allegedly having an affair is something rather interesting:

    Lo Duca also was hit yesterday with the announcement that the Mets will probe claims that he has heavy gambling debts.
    That is a potentially serious issue, as MLB does not take gambling lightly. Even if he has not bet on baseball, there's always a huge concern about professional athletes getting into serious debt with gamblers.

    Hmmm. Maybe the real reason that LoDuca isn't talking to the media is that he lost a bet.

    Re: The New York Mets Thread

    The Mets are running away with the National League this year, and that's an understatement. They are 26 games over .500 (71-45). The Cardinals are second in the NL at only 7 games over .500 (62-55), and the Dodgers are 6 games over .500 (62-56). After that you basically have .500 teams or worse.

    In fact, if you changed the playoff system so that it seeded the eight teams with the best records, the Mets would be the only National League team to make it. If the season ended today and you seeded the playoffs NCAA Basketball-style, it would look like this:

    #1 Detroit (76-41) vs. #8 Toronto (63-55)
    #4 NY Yankees (68-46) vs. #5 Boston (68-48)

    #3 Chi White Sox (70-46) vs. #6 Minnesota (68-49)
    #2 NY Mets (71-45) vs. #7 Oakland (65-52)

    As a fan, I think that this playoff seeding system would be more exciting than what we will actually get. So Bud Selig, for the 2006 baseball season, please only allow the Mets to qualify in the National League, then have 7 American League teams. Thanks, Bud.
