Labor Day Quick Hits

As the Mets prepare to begin the series with the Braves this afternoon, I have a few short moments to myself before family obligations take over my day.

As ugly as this past week has been, it's amazing that the Mets are only 2-1/2 games out of the wildcard. Losing 6 of 9 should have probably killed them. In a way, they're playing with house money now; maybe it will relax them enough to play a decent series in Atlanta.

Hope Trachsel has another really good performance in him to justify all the emotion that's been spent on him in the past week.

Schein Off

I was driving home last night listening to WFAN. Adam Schein's show came on at 8:00, and he did his opening. After talking about the Yankees for a couple of minutes he switched over to the Mets. He talked about Saturday's loss to the Marlins, and Willie's decision to use Shingo Takatsu. He began to rant about how although he has defended Willie all year, Willie had DISGRACED HIMSELF with this move. This from a Yankee fan who could really care less.

Fake anger and over-the-top silliness are taking over sports talk radio in a big way. Adam Schein is just another brick in this wall. Adam, from a Mets fan who doesn't buy your silly act: you have all of the subtlety of a fart, all of the real sports knowledge of a Macanudo cigar radio commercial, and the true disgrace is you. Good luck with your ratings, pal.
