“Gangstas in the field…Ladies on the bus”
One of the many quotes jerry Manuel used to reel us in after we have suffered the types of years that nobody could have imagined in this age. The mets these days have lost their annual (it seems) key component to a season that seemed destined for retribution. While I still have faith we can still accomplish our goal, the mets will have to adopt a different image and have to play a different type of game to do a lost art it seems these days…”manufacture runs”. People often wonder why the Philadelphia Phillies have so much success without having really any big names to their club. The answer is very simple…role players. The Phillies have mastered the art of getting the most out of average players such as victorino (feel free to vomit), werth, dobbs and Pedro feliz. I believe the mets have to modify their strategy to incorporate role players to surround what is left from a power driven core. In short…Manuel needs to let these ladies off the bus and give them their “G” back.
