BDD: Mets Have A Napoleon Complex
Once again at Baseball Daily Digest, I rip the Mets for running their mouths and still having nothing to show for it.
It’s official: the New York Mets have a Napoleon complex. In a span of a week, we have a hodge-podge of cognitive dissonance — bleating from the New York blue and orange that is comically weak.
I’m all for a rivalry, but know your place. The claims — usually made by junior high students — are akin to chest-puffing, or a guy buying a big house, a fancy car, and an expensive watch to make up for some… uh… certain shortcomings. The Mets are bordering on pitiful and, if they blow it for a third straight season, risk becoming squelched and irrelevant — hard to do in that media market.
Also, Round 5 of our Dream Draft is posted. I’ve made my pick for Round 6 already, though — I took Yunel Escobar.
C – Russell Martin
2B – Chase Utley
SS – Yunel Escobar
3B – Mike Moustakas
CF – Matt Kemp
SP – Chad Billingsley
Update, 02/20/09: I don’t feel like creating another post but Round 6 is up at Baseball Digest Daily. Round 7 will be up soon. I chose Carlos Marmol.
On another note, there are three spots left for the Crashburn Alley fantasy baseball league. They’re open for anybody, so if you’d like to join, leave your e-mail address in the comments or send a message to crashburnalley [at] gmail [dot] com.
