Curb Your Enthusiasm

When asked about Dan Murphy’s attempted steal of third base in Saturday night’s game against the Braves, Mets manager Terry Collins explained,

“It was an error of enthusiasm. He was trying to create something that wasn’t there.”

Note to Murph re: that enthusiasm: curb it.

    Terry Collins just might take the booby prize for worst manager in Mets history before all is said and done. It is bloody disgusting the way he talks after a game.
