The Show: Willie no talkie no more

Even though there were only 5 games last night, the Mets still thought they couldn’t grab the headline with a victory alone, so they decided that this was a better way to steal the morning headlines. Either way, let’s start with the goodies…

Mets 9, TLAAofA 6; Apparently, winning 3 of your last 4 is not good enough to save your job. Omar Minaya and the Mets have pointed the finger in the wrong direction, and according to sources, there was some slight in-house sabatoge brewing. It seems odd that the Mets would fire the manager, the third base coach, and the pitching coach, but not the bench coach. Isn’t he the one that assists Willie with his in game decisions? At least for Willie, he no longer has to endure the constant feel of his head on the chopping block, and he got a free trip out to the west coast. I doubt the Mets sprung for the ticket on the return flight. Here at Awesomo, we wish Willie the best of luck, and hope the Mets suck even more. Lots of people have talked a lot about it already. Like here, and here, and even here, oh and can’t forget here.

Braves 7, Rockies 1; The MLB schedulers are pretty crafty. The Rockies/Braves get snowed out, so they decide the best way to make that up is on a trip to Texas. I didn’t realize that Arlington was that close to Colorado. Chipper went 2 for 4 and raised his average to .403. We’re going to go out on a limb, and call it now. Chipper is not going to be hitting .400. I know, it’s bold, but that is what we do here at Awesomo, we are ctrl B.

Boston 2, Phillies 8; There was a Ryan Howard sighting last night in Philly. The slugger went 3 for 5 with 2 homers. He also happened to strikeout twice, but we won’t dwell on the negatives. Howard is now hitting a blistering .224. We are going to go out on a limb and call it now. Howard is not going to be hitting .400. I know, it’s bold, but that is what we do here at Awesomo, we are ctrl B.

Florida 6, Mariners 1; The Mariners are pretty bad. They need a new manager, perhaps Willie would be interested in moving to soggy Seattle. Richie “I like to fight” Sexson went 2-4 and is hitting a paltry .218. The Marlins don’t have a single hitter over .300, yet manage to be in second in the NL East.

Tigers 6, Giants 8; Marcus Thames homored in 7 straight at bats. That is pretty ridiculous, good thing they said goodbye to Jacques Jones. Unfortunately, Thames did not set MLB records. That record is held, without an astrisk, by Mark McGwire. Big Mac hit 11 in a row at one point (thanks for that little nugget BBTN crew). Tim Lincecum had his worst outing of the season, but the remainder of the Giants rallied for 5 in the 8th to get the win. Talking about San Francisco makes us think of our new favorite player, Ben Francisco of the Cleveland Indians. How sweet is that name?
