The one year Jose played for Seattle, he was an angel. A true gamer who helped lay down the law in the clubhouse. His presence was seriously missed when Seattle let him leave.

Bradley is an extremely intense person. He takes the game seriously, and his biggest problem seems to be never having learned how to handle failure.

Even when he caused such a ruckus over leaving a game midway, he came back the next morning and gave an enthralling presentation to a group of elementary school kids, then asked the club for help.

When he is free of his inner demons, he is such a bright light. His enthusiasm is contagious, and lifts the club whenever he does well.

Milton may have finally found a home. With the help and support of truly great guys like Mike Sweeney, Milton is poised to have a great rest of the year.

Well, obviously the team that turned the triple play didn't lose 12-0. Twice in the 2000s, a team that lost a 12-0 game avoided more damage by turning a triple play. Both times, the losing team was the home team, so the winning team had 9 offensive innings. Actually, in one of these games, the triple play was turned in the top of the first in a 0-0 game. But the home team's momentum didn't carry through the rest of the game. Aaron Rowand watched both of these triple plays from center field.

And as for the Mets "organizational problems", what can you say? They're from New York, whih automatically puts them at a well-defined disadvantage.

Yet, that didn't stop you from posting about Milton Bradley or the Padres' playoff chances, neither of which have anything to do with your precious PI!

You are a Mets-hater, pure and simple, and it shows!

I think the Mets organization has a lot of problems mostly of their own doing. I think the team has a long way to go to be consistently competitive. So, I don't think very much of them, but I do not feel that I have a bias against them, nor do I go out of my way to invent negative stats about the team or ignore positive ones.

Thanks for admitting it and proving my point, Andy!

My first thought (as a bitter and cynical Indians fan) was "Throw it back!" Wouldn't that have been the perfect symbol for this season, the home fans tossing a souvenir back onto the field.
