The Amazin' Avenue Rec-ord Book: #110 - 101

Avenuerecordbook_medium

List as of April 17, 2011

#150 - 141 | #140 - 131 | #130 - 121 | #120 - 111 | #110 - 101 | #100 - 91 | #90 - 81 | #80 - 71 | #70 - 61 | #60 - 51 | #50 - 41 | #40 - 31 | #30 - 21 | #20 - 11 | #10 - 1 | Recap

As we begin our descent toward double-digit territory, let's take a gander at the next 10 posts. Just keep in mind that as I had originally intended to only do a top 100 list, any of the posts here or in previous portions of the list could have easily been omitted. In hindsight, I'm glad that didn't happen. Let's proceed, with #110 - 101, after the jump...

Develop the knuckler of Dickey.
You will always be getting raise and sink,
but do not let either affect the poise of the Dickey:
follow the knuckler, the absence of spin.

Aarbnumber105_medium Eulogy For John Maine

Bumped from FanPosts

-------------------------------------------------------

Friends, Met fans, countrymen, lend me your ears;

I come to bury John Maine, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with John Maine. The noble Dan Warthen
Hath told you John Maine was a liar:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath John Maine answer’d it.
Here, under leave of Dan Warthen and the rest -

Aarbnumber101_medium The Great Divide

In a move that came as news to no one (except maybe Jerry Manuel), the Mets announced on Monday they were in the market for both a new manager and a new GM. Reactions varied among the fanbase, but there was almost universal agreement that this move was a good one, or at the very least necessary.

The mood among the writers was somewhat different. If you monitored Twitter yesterday afternoon when the news broke, you would have been treated to testimonials about what great guys Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya are. Dave Lennon of Newsday praised Omar as a "class guy." Steve Popper of the Bergen Record thought "it's in bad taste to revel in people being fired." And Jon Heyman said (in separate tweets) "i really like jerry and omar, great guys, really good baseball people...i dont like the revelry...i'm seeing by some regarding dismissal of minaya and manuel."

I found the press's reactions especially odd because for a good chunk of the season, many Mets beat writers openly mocked both the on-field play and the front office moves of the team they covered (not without cause, mind you), and for weeks have spoken of both Jerry and Omar as dead men walking. And yet, when the axe actually fell, most of them articulated regret and lectured fans for expressing joy over their departure.
