While I usually make fun of my Mets, I couldn't resist one last parting shot at a ballpark I'll never get to see the Mets play in again.

"You only get so many chances." —Manager Jack McKeon, after his team couldn't score Tuesday in three innings in which it had the bases loaded.

McKeon on Bonifacio "I'm trying to make him realize that they don't want to walk him. And if he is patient he will get plenty of good pitches to hit,'' McKeon said. "But I guess it's gonna take a while for everything to sink in.''

"I’m getting tired of looking at this stuff. We’re better than that. It’s time to wake up," said an exasperated McKeon. "Maybe they can’t play. Maybe they’re not good enough. It’s up to them. They have another 25 games to show us they can play." ..."Sooner or later these guys have got to wake up. We’re not running tryout camps here," McKeon said. "They’ve got to start producing. This is the big leagues. You develop in the minor leagues, you win in the big leagues. I’m getting tired of saying the same thing every night. Maybe we’re not that good." ..."You alibi [that] they’re young. But bottom line is you’re either a winner or a loser, and you’ve got to shape up and let’s go," McKeon said.

It is undecided if Chris Coghlan will be brought up to the big leagues as a September callup. Coghlan, at Triple-A, has dealt with several injuries, including left knee inflammation. Third-base prospect Matt Dominguez likely will get called up, but the team will wait until after the Minor League season ends on Sept. 5 before bringing up a majority of their Minor Leaguers.

Sandy Rosario: September call up

"On Thursday, the first day of September callups, Rosario was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans, and he becomes the 14th pitcher on the roster, which now is at 26. Rosario made seven relief appearances for the Zephyrs, posting an 0-1 record with a 4.05 ERA in 6 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old from the Dominican Republic spent most of the season at Double-A Jacksonville, where he appeared in 46 games where he was 3-2 with a 4.15 ERA." Rosario wasn't quite as good, in the Minors, this year as last but given his age, 26 years-old, the Marlins need to find out if there is any hope of him being a Major League pitcher. Last season he appeared in 2 games for the Marlins and between the 2 recorded 1 inning of work while allowing 6 runs on 9 hits.

Marlins Announcers "Independence"

A nice article on Rich and Tommy being able to openly critique the team and the moves of the front office. While it is not always true they have free reign, they do have more freedom than most announcers for other MLB teams.
