When Black Friday Comes

Just like the Mets to have a solid game against the league’s best team on the same day that stories suggesting the org whack the manager (New York Sun) and pitching coach (Daily News) appear. But that’s the Mets.

Part of it could be a lift from the return of Moises Alou to the lineup, though I’d argue that the drag of anticipating his return was every bit as bad. They activated Alou by the way, by demoting Gustavo Molina while Brian Schneidershowed up in an emergency mode.

And don’t get me wrong — it’s great to see Jose Reyes driving the ball again, and I want to see a cycle as much as the next guy, maybe more, but Sandy Alomar Sr. is a horse’s ass for sending Reyes after the inside-the-parker with no outs. Not only was he out by a mile but he could have gotten hurt. And he certainly would have scored given the three bats in the lineup to follow him. Alomar got away with the same kinda boneheaded calls all last year and was never held accountable.

Worth noticing in the game was the fact they were in their black jerseys again… a get-up that to this point has been worn on each Friday of the season and only on Friday. A friend pointed out these jerseys do not include the Shea Stadium patch as their white ones do. Not sure offhand is that is peculiar only to the black jerseys or to black road jerseys. Do you know? Let us know.
