Mike, Matt: Can We Duel Already?


It seems so long ago, but this wasn’t the first time Mike Francesa criticized Matt Cerrone.

Mike says “who cares what Matt Cerrone thinks“? Matt addresses the comment, then removes the post. Then Mike backtracks (a little). The bloggers unite, calling out Mike and every other old-school media dinosaur who couldn’t power on a computer if their life depended on it — much less “get” this “blog thing”.

In the end, it’s welcome drama to an otherwise slow Memorial Day weekend in the blogosphere.

I still say let’s stage a duel between Matt and Mike to settle this like men, and create an enormous public relations opportunity / fund raiser. I have the ideal location.

Or maybe there’s another way … cast your vote below:

Mets Induct Lasorda and Other Oddities

Did you know that the Mets are the keepers of the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Fame? Me neither, but thanks to Metstradamus I also know that Tommy Lasorda was inducted into it this past Sunday.

Matt Cerrone likes the cream-colored shirts that the Mets were wearing this weekend. I don’t — to me they’re similar to the color of the Padres unis, always looking dirty or somehow “off” — but I would welcome them for no reason other than the Brooklyn Dodgers never wore cream, and anything that can be done to distance the Mets from the Dodgers is to me a step in the right direction.

We finally get an inkling on Jerry Manuel’s true thoughts on Ryan Church (i.e., he doesn’t think he’s very tough). Hat tip to Kranepool Society, which also reminds us that as bad as the Mets are playing, a winter without baseball is worse.

MetsPolice has a gripe about the Mets’ decision to slash ticket prices.

Finally, Josh Alper of NBC New York thinks a decision on Jerry Manuel’s future should be made right now.
