A Request Of Marty Noble

I'm not here to completely pan Marty Noble's latest ode to "grit > talent". But there's one passage of the piece that has me curious: Two winters ago, after the drudgery of the Mets' 2009 season...

Marty Noble is Mike Wallace-esque. My favorite question and answer: MLB.com: Well, put aside expense. What would you like to get? Parnell: A World Series ring. But I'll take it in October. I want a real one.

Marty Noble: Glavine Claims Young Mets Weren't Offended By Losing

260

From Marty Noble's profile of Wally Backman: And it's what Tom Glavine saw as far back as June 2007 -- losing was acceptable to some of the young players, they weren't suitably offended by it. Let's take a trip down nightmare lane, to Sept. 30, 2007 and Mr. Glavine's postgame comments following 1/3 IP, 5 H, 7 ER: "I'm not devastated, but I am disappointed," Glavine said. "Devastated is a word used for greater things in life than a game." Contrast Glavine's "whatever" reaction with Carlos Beltran, David Wright and Jose Reyes's responses to losing game 162 on Sept. 28, 2008: Beltran sunk his head into Martinez's shoulder, tears welling in his eyes. "It's something that burns. It's a bad feeling," said third baseman David Wright. Jose Reyes sat at his locker with his head in his hands. [He] was sitting on his chair in front of his locker when a few people came over and consoled him. He then exhaled a few times and put his head back in his hands before finally going into the back of the trainer's room. Tell me again who wasn't offended by losing?

The Mets believe Francoeur will look sharp in their 2010 uni, so much so that they are inclined to approach him about signing him to a three-year contract that would allow him to become a big league Beau Brummel, if he so chose. They like what they have seen of him in and out of uniform -- from his spirited demeanor to his nuclear arm to the two doubles he produced Saturday afternoon in their victory against the Nationals.

In an effort to discourage bad Mets discussion on the internet (yes, impossible), I'm going to start openly mocking. This one is just a test run. Think of it as the site bot scouring the internet...
