Bartollo Colon, could he be out of gas. He doesn’t exactly have that Jack Lalanne physique. There is no evidence of PED use there for sure. He has had bad outings back to back for the first time all summer. He pitched winter ball so that would make it very long season. As much as I would love to see him make a very long season with a little less than half to go not counting the post season.

Manager Joe Girardi made up a 1000 excuses for the portly righthander but Bartollo would have no part of them. Colon said through an interpreter. "That was my fault. I don't pitch good, and they hit me, and I lost the game." (just why does he “still” need an interpretor?)

The move to to send Ivan Nova to SWB to keep him starting doesn’t look so stupid now. And hopefully Hughes keeps pitching well. Maybe, just maybe it was a burp for Colon. Maybe next outing he comes back OK.

Do the Freddy

Freddy Garcia pitched a gem, David Robinson pitched a light out 8th inning.  OK so this is the closest thing the Mets will get to a championship in a few years.  True you have to be happy with 2 of 3 but after taking the first two, well you know.  Ramiro Pena is suppose to be the sure handed fielder, it took him two errors to finally give away Sunday's extra inning matchup allowing Daniel Murphy to keep the inning alive.  But if we cscored 3 runs today the point would be moot.

With every SS error that is made pushes that big head further up Derek's butt.  Jason Bay gets the winning hit of the day. 

The Captain returns on the late Boss's birthday in Cleveland to resume his hunt for hit # 3000.

Mitrie Returns Home

Sergio Mitre
Sergio Mitre didn't count out the possibility of reuniting with the Yankees in the future, he just didn't see it happening this year. Nor did he see himself starting against the mets this weekend.  After all, the Yankees had traded him in March for outfielder Chris Dickerson. 

It's funny sometimes how things can work out.
