Caught a minor league Mets game, the Brooklyn Cyclones on Saturday. This was the first minor league game I've been to. Keyspan park is a beautiful setting for a ball park......right on the beach w/ views of the Atlantic ocean, a great view of the Coney Island Amusement park. it looks like you can reach out and touch the parachutte jump which sits just beyond the right field fence.

Minor league games are very hokey.....lots of music piping in, lots of mascots, lots of give aways, and lots of fan participation.....

all for a 12 dollar ticket.

Too bad the surrounding area is complete crap.

Dont get me wrong Im not bitching about one game, just the fact that our pitching situation is not the best and if you are comfortable with it your as fucked in the head as my gramps!!!

I am happy I didnt go to tonights game though, I would have been very upset.

TheBrush - I'm not thrilled w/ our starting pitching either, however, Trachsel has looked good recently and Maine has looked fantastic, so it's not too bleak.

at least we aren't throwing Lima Time out there.

Well I will agree I am happy its not Lima Time, but if we get excited about Trachsel you know we are in trouble!!

I realize our squad isnt ever gonna be perfect and you could always improve a bit here and there but I just think something is missing is all.

I know. Unfortunately, people are getting their hopes up some here. I'm certain we have zero chance of making the playoffs. We have Scott Mathieson and Jon Lieber who are like guaranteed losses 2 out of 5 days, and 2 other shaky starters. Our bullpen now has NO steady pitchers. And people think we have a shot?

but aren't the Fighting Phils only like 3.5 games out of the wild card? Anything can happen....a hot streak or some injuries on the teams ahead of them.

Yes they are 3.5 but they aren't good enough. They are inconsistent in every aspect of the game. Pat Burrell is the worst player in history at this point. The pitching absolutely sucks. Really, we are Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, David Delucci, and Chris Coste with 21 bafoons.

I bet the Phillies are also enjoying the Florida swampland that they obtained from George Steinbrenner in exchange for Bobby Abreu.
