Anyone want to take money on Scott Podsednik going 0 for the rest of the season?

Didn't get to see much of his batting prowess in his Rangers days.

It appears Jon Garland has returned to the Jon Garland of old.

He implodes right around the 4th inning.

Podsednik is awful, god awful. The Sock only have 1 outfielder who can hit. This does not look good.

Podsednik will get out of his slump sooner or later. If they can win 4 in a row with him playing this terribly, imagine how good they could be if he starts playing at last years level

And I'm not worried about Garland just yet. Even if he does keep sucking, Brandon McCarthy is a pretty good backup option

In other baseball news, MLB 2K6 is insanely difficult to play

Viva los Mets !!

no longer is he Carlos BUSTran, but rather Carols BELT the ball in to the upper deck daily !

Delgado is a stud....

**************************************************
think Barry Bonds is off to a slow start just because he's off to a slow start OR do you think it has something to do w/ being in his 40s OR that he's off the juice OR because of the pending investigation hanging over his head?

i went with mlb'06: the show this year... still pissed that MVP lost the right to use MLB players. i picked up the college version, and it's pretty cool, but it's not the same.

i know i've gotten into arguments with the brush over this before, but the treatment that beltran got on opening day is exactly why, even as a met fan, other met fans annoy the crap out of me from time to time. now i have no problem with fans booing someone for not producing, esp. someone making as much money as carlos beltran... but come on now. it's opening day. give the guy a month... a week even. i don't blame beltran for not wanting to come out for the curtain call last thursday (which i didn't realize he didn't want to come out at first because they didn't show franco talking to him on the diamond vision... i was at the game)

i booed beltran just as much as anyone else last year... but come on, give the guy a chance in his second season.

yes... yes he is.

it's tough to tell... normaly if a guy in his low 40s coming off a year in which he missed 80% of the season didn't produce like he used to anymore, no one would think twice about it. but barry is obviously a different situation because of all that's hanging over his head. who knows... it could be any one of the reasons you mentioned.


and the brush... pistols at dawn for the man crush affection of david wright? works for me. i'd help him move

For the record, I was never a Beltran boo-er.

Yes, he had a sub par year last year....but I think that was because he was trying to do too much. I think he's beginning to thrive now because of all the talent around him. There isn't all that pressure to be "the man". He know that if he doesn't produce for a game or a week or two, that there are a handful of other guys who will pick up the slack. He's more relaxed now.

i didn't say you were... was just stating for the record. it's good to see him finally producing the way he should be. if he hits, oh i don't know, .280, 30 dingers, 90 to 100 rbis, 30-40 steals, 100+ runs scored and plays a good outfield... then as long as the pitching staff stays healthy, the mets are looking at a good 95+ win season... 'cause frankly, the NL East... and the entire National League, short of st. louis, sucks.

i think i heard that the Mets play the Nats and Fish 38 times this season.

VERY Conservative #s here:

If that's true, we should take a minimum of 28 out of 38 games.
That leaves the Mets w/ 124 games vs everyone else....say worst case scenario, we split those games....

The Mets would have 90 wins.

Of course by Mother's Day the last shred of tendon holding Pedro's shoulder together could snap...just wanna keep you Mets boys on an even keel as they've played a whopping 8 games so far, and against 2 little league caliber teams no less... carry on
